Eating Out in Bled, Slovenia

As Bled is a relatively small town, you’re rarely far from somewhere to eat. A selection of restaurants serving traditional Slovenian fare can be found around town, with international offerings also available.

The town’s culinary speciality is the ‘kremna rezina’ or cream cake. An enticing mix of butter dough and vanilla cream, these cakes are enjoyed by large numbers of locals and visitors.

Other local favourites include ‘struklji’ (dumplings made with cottage cheese), ‘potica’ (a walnut roll) and ‘kraski parsut’ (air-dried pork). Various different wines are also produced locally and are well worth sampling.

Some of the city’s most popular restaurants can be found along Cesta Svobode and Ljubljanska, with the shopping centre on Ljubljanska providing a surprising number of tasty meal options. A selection of coffee shops and taverns can also be found on these streets.
