Slow Food is inseparable element of My Slow Travels. I’m huge breakfast lover, but in general discovering new places through the cuisine is one of my favorite ways for slow travelling.
After “Slow Weekend in Prague” Guide with my original suggestions for sightseeing, there is time for food 🙂
This is not a culinary blog. Instead of publishing long detailed list of best places to eat in Prague, my purpose is rather to convince you, that during any trip it’s worthwhile to dedicate some time for celebrating meals. But to enjoy, you have to find a good place 🙂 And searching takes time… So to help you with it, I will share here:
- few of my recommendations,
- a proven source for finding great places to eat in Prague.
I have top 3 places, which I always visit during my stay in Prague. These are:
- Italian ice cream of velvety texture and angelic taste
- for their salty caramel
- for their opening hours (during the season May-September until 10 p.m.)
- other very good ice cream in Prague you’ll fin in Crème de la Crème, Zmrzlinár and Puro Gelato. I truly recommend.
Café Jen ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- my number one breakfast place ever (not only in Prague)
- for their coffee (and best baristas in Prague – confirmed by certificates and competitions)
- for their fresh and healthy food
- for their philosophy, attitude to the client, team spirit
- we try from time to time other places like Bistro8 or Café Savoy – they are very good, but nothing can beat my beloved Café Jen
- outstanding vegetarian and vegan restaurant
- for their ingenuity
- for their best vegetarian “tartare” in the World
- for their mushroom pâté and chocolate fondant
- for the top quality of food and reasonable prices
- for the proffesional service
Other places worth recommending depending on the topic:
- Lokál – for the best Pilsner beer which you can find in Prague and best freid cheese (please, don’t eat the one sold on the street)!
- Kozlovna U Paukerta – I’m not a big fan of Czech cuisine (it’s not easy to be 😉), but yeah visiting Czech Republic you can plan one meal in such place. Choose this restaurant and you shouldn’t be dissapionted
- Vinohradsky Parlament – good beer (but not so good as in Lokál) and good Czech cuisine (steak tartare)
- San Carlo – for best Italian pizza in Prague
- Lemon Leaf – amazing Thai cuisine
- Super Tramp Coffee – for its coffee and courtyard. Located in the heart of the city center, but hard to find. And it’s the advantage 🙂
- Café Slavia – for its live piano concerts and historical background (favorite cafe of Václav Havel, a Czech statesman, writer and former dissident, who served as the last President of Czechoslovakia from 1989 until the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1992 and then as the first President of the Czech Republic from 1993 to 2003)
- Lucerna – for the interior and the history (Lucerna Palace was built by Vácslav Havel, grandfather of Václav Havel – later president of the Czech Republic)
- Bakeshop – bakery and cakes (cheesecake with chocolate glaze 😍)
- U Vystrelenyho oka – located in remote part of Zizkov district, worth for unique experience of old, authentic Czech style tavern. But be careful – not very hygienic place haha 😉
