I've visited Prague together with my mom and we've spent four nights in this cotton candy colored city. Besides spotting buildings in all colors of the rainbow, and visiting Prague's amazing sights, I think it's pleasant to eat and drink at nice locations too. Find my Prague travel tips here:
Coffee and sweets in Prague
It is great to sit at the open window of OneSip Coffee to enjoy your cup of coffee. There is not much place to sit, but that doesn't matter, many locals stop by and drink a cup of coffee standing at the bar which gives it a very pleasant atmosphere. The coffee comes from Round Hill Roastery in Somerset, where they monitor the complete journey from farm to cup. They aim to source the best seasonal harvests and only select small lots from independent growers.
Besides the classic espresso, the baristas at Original Coffee also serve aeropress, V60 and Chemex coffee. For those who like to drink specialty coffee at home, it's possible to by whole coffee beans by weight (which they can grind for you). On the small menu there are savory- and sweet bites and a daily soup. The waiter was really kind and asked several times if everything was okay. Nice place with a good vibe!

Cafe Letka has got that artsy feeling with rustic walls and high ceilings and windows. Some of the old wooden tables are big enough to share with others and several people are sitting on cushions in the window sills while they are reading a book. The quality coffee comes from Five Elephant in Berlin whose goal it is to source the best coffees while being thoughtful of the environmental and social impact of the farmers and their estates. We have tried fresh juices with VERY tasty carrot cake.
The hidden Super Tramp Coffee cafe is open 6 days a week, except on Saturdays. Unfortunately that was the exact day we showed up at this cool rugged courtyard...
I would have loved to sit on their terrace, so I think I need to go back some day :)
Therefore I can't review this place, but I've heard good things about it and it looks nice on the outside, so that's why it is in this blog.
It is not easy to find, you have to walk into the entrance of a garage and then go left. From here you can enter the courtyard and you will see the gate to the cafe on your right hand side.
La Bottega Bistroteka is the 4th bistro with Italian delicatessen in Prague by owner Riccardo Lucque. Besides having lunch or dinner here it is possible to buy some quality products like fresh fruits, vegetables and olive oils. In the back there is a specialty wine- and cheese shop as well. We have tried this delicious cake with matcha tea ganache.
After spending the whole morning visiting the castle, it was time to escape the crowds and enjoy a cup of tea with chocolates in a relaxing environment. Alchymist Grand Hotel & Spa is a five star boutique hotel and spa, which has got a lovely courtyard with classic design. Here we sat back for a while and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. It is possible to book a massage or treatment for non-guests too.
Lunch and dinner in Prague
KAFKA Snob Food is named after one of Prague's most famous inhabitant, the novelist Franz Kafka who was born in this city in 1883. The interior is cozy and colourful, and the tasty food is Italian inspired. We ate very good salmon with avocado and grilled vegetables for lunch.
Vegetarian restaurant Lehka Hlava (which means Clear Head) is situated in a building which is over 500 years old and has got lots of charm because of the many cozy corners and vaulted ceilings. The different sitting area's were decorated and painted (ceilings as well) by local artists. We've tried the Cantonese tofu with vegetables and loved it!
Eska is a restaurant with a bakery where they bring the traditional and the modern together on your plate. Does potatoes in ash with smoked fish and fermented asparagus soft drink sound good to you? Than I can recommend to book a table at this stunning place! I loved every little detail about this restaurant. The taste of our dish was surprisingly delicious and the waiters where one by one very friendly. If I would ever visit Prague again I would definitely come back here!
Downstairs you will find the bakery, kitchen and coffee bar.
The restaurant and bar are upstairs:
Can a rooftop view get any better than this!? Terasa U Prince is situated on the 4th floor of Hotel U Prince. The terrace is divided into two parts, when you get upstairs you can choose to go left or right. We sat on the right side, because this part is smaller and therefore cosier, and has got the best view (in my opinion). We really enjoyed the sweeping views over the Tyn Church and the surrounding streets. The food was flavorful and the overall experience is really one not to miss!
