Cafe was dicovered quite by accident in 1911. during excavation of limestone found by Jakov Bolf Talijanetov. The cave was first explored by geologist Josip Poljak who named it Lipa over the hill Debela lipa. Later the name was changed because the cave is not located in the hill Debela lipa, but in the hill Kameniti vrh. For cave Lokvarka Poljak wrote that it is one of the most beautiful caves Croatian karst.
The cave has 6 floors, of which the first four are open to visitors. The length of the cave discovered so far is 1179 meters and depth 275 meters. The temperature inside the cave ranges from 7 to 9 degrees.
