Best gingerbread cookie/christmas deco shop?

Hi everybody,

I'm going to Prague next week and I'm looking for a few things.

-a bakery where they make and sell amazing gingerbread cookies

-a cafe where they have the best coffee and great tarts, can be a bit chic

-a shop where they make and sell great Christmas decorations.

I really don't want the really touristy ones, more the sort of shops the locals would go to. So that's why I asking you for advice! Any tips are welcome :) Thank you very much!

Czech Christmas decorations..check out locations of Manufaktura

Cafe Savoy for breafkast/coffee

or Cafe Louvre-known for their desserts

traditional gingerbread is from Pardubice and is normally decorated

there are lots of sweat shops in Prague...cukrárna

Prague is walkable..that is part of the joy is simply walking around and finding the unexpected

Apart from the more upscale cafes, Cafe Lounge & Hugo z Hor have the best coffee...

Cukr Kava Limonada - for cakes.... all 3 in Mala Strana-Ujezd, Hugo z Hor - Smichov... the last one has several shops....

Most cukrarnas will have Pardubicky Pernik (see previous post) around Christmas....




The freshest cakes - Mysak. Might have gingebread, but better known for rich pastries & cakes:


You probably will not have time to visit the Gingerbread Museum

www.pernikova-chaloupka.cz/tema/tema.phtml… It's in Ráby u Pardubic...

Mysak & Hugo z Hor will be the least frequented by tourists, but Hugo z Hor is known more for its coffees, beer + honey cakes, though for Christmas they might have other things. They seldom update their website...



Ovocny Svetozor - good cakes; not sure about the "ambiance..."

Cukrarna Na Pesine - online - or visit to take back...outskirts of Prague...
