Pop’s Place is located smack bang in the middle of Ljubljana’s soul, overlooking the Ljubljanica River with glimpses of Ljubljana Castle. Nothing less than a picturesque dining experience filled with plenty of people watching on Ljubljana’s main artery, Cankarjevo Nabrežje. Pop’s Place is a family owned and run GastroPub serving gourmet burgers and craft beer. The same family own well-known ‘As Aperitivo Restaurant‘ serving local Slovenian cuisine located only moments away from Pop’s Place.
Three years ago when I first visited Ljuljbana, Pop’s Place had the best burgers in Ljubljana according to TripAdvisor. Three years on they’ve dropped down the second place. it didn’t matter as getting a table there during lunch time was a mission, they may have been second but they were still busy AF.
We waited about 15 minutes to get a table.
For my second visit to Pop’s I had my heart set out on some spare ribs. Not possible. Completely sold out. I take a look back at the menu at our waiter suggests “The Boss.” Once I read that there was truffle aioli involved in this meal and that it’s their best seller, I am instantly sold.
A side of parmesan cheesey fries is also mandatory.
All burgers are served on a brioche bun, only adding to the deliciousness of each bite.
If you’re looking for a casual place to eat in the heart of Ljubljana, visit Pop’s Place.
