2 bad coffees for 14 euro. Draw your own conclusions. Without a doubt the worst experience I have ever had in a European cafe and I have travelled extensively.

This has been completely revamped, both in its looks and behaviours. Two beers here cost around the same as anywhere else, so I suspect that the old rip-off prices are a thing of the past. This is bright, with pictures of Kafka on the walls. It also has an unusual display of kosher items for sale, if you're into that kind of thing.

This is the most expensive cafe I have ever visited. It cost us over £18 for 2 cups of coffee ( a regular and a cappuccino) and a slice of cake!
We visited this place because of the Kafka connection - a few posters on the walls and an old typewriter (not Kafka's) - and were the only people in there. The coffees were tiny and average at best, the price was totally out of proportion - we could have bought a three course meal and drinks for the same price.
In 30 years of travelling I have never seen anything like this - felt as though someone had picked my pocket. Shameless exploitation - avoid, avoid, avoid!

This place is a sham. Looks nice from the outside. Advertising cheap take out coffees etc. what could go wrong? The waiter is so quick to serve you, you have no time to look at the menu. The prices will cost you more than your evening dinner. The waiter then reminds you at the end that service is not included! Avoid at all costs. If there is any justice this place will close and stop ripping off innocent customers. So many other great place in Prague - go to them instead

Don't waste your time going here. Great ambient atmosphere. Yet the price of two mulled wines was £16. The waiter also wanted a tip for poor service! Don't go.
