All we wanted was a quick cup of tea, and what we got was Art Deco to the highest level. I felt like I should have worn a DJ with spats on my shoes and my wife her twenties flapper dress. What a palace of yesterday. The waiter wandering about with the cake trolly, someone catches his eye and he... More

I visited the coffee restaurant with two foreign couples. The restaurant set up and decoration is stunning, beautiful and most impressive. Probably the best coffee restaurant space in Prague. Shame that the service and coffee quality was not up to the same level. The service was fast but just standard, rather cool than friendly, not a trace of smile. My... More

The waiting staff are extremely attentive and service is very prompt with plenty of staff on hand. Coffees/teas were excellent but best of all was the cake trolley which... More

This is coffee bar with genius loci. This kind of place remind me long history and old good times :) Service is on top level and it is wonderfull to hear live piano here. Cakes were good but not perfect, I think that it is small thing to improve.

Stumbled upon this cafe by chance one night and was awed by the impressive interior. It was brightly lit with chandeliers giving the vibe that this place was an upper-class establishment, patronized by the rich and famous in the 20th century. There's a good selection of cakes from the trolley to choose from. Whilst the food are nothing to shout... More

A genuine tourist trap, attracting people with nice old-style decorations, but with well-below average food.

Living in Harrogate in England we are lucky to have one of the most marvellous, tea shop imaginable. BUT This is exceptional. The arcitecture transports one back a hundred years and one can easily imagine bring served tea and cafe in the early 20th Century. The cakes, whilSt not exceptional are good. Behaviour is also good with few people using... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
