Where to get a coffee that actually deserves its name!

In which cafés or coffeehouses can you sit comfortably and read, surf the web, people watch, and/or chat?  Here are a few recommendations to get you started:


  • Break Café
    Štěpánská 32, Praha 1
    Great caffe latte, crispy croissants, excellent cheesecake, tasty sandwiches and salads. Very friendly service.  
  • Café Ebel
    Řetězová 9, Praha 1
    Kaprová 11. Praha 1
    Though a chain, Ebel never lacks charm.  Go for the cozy surroundings and peaceful vibe.
  • Choco Cafe, Liliová 4, Praha 1
    Just minutes from Old Town Square, yet still somehow well-hidden from tourists, this non-smoking cafe specializes in hot chocolate. Free-wifi, big comfy chairs, and highly recommended.
  • Tynska Literarni Kavarna
    Týnska 6, Praha 1
    An interesting little place right off the Old Town Square. You can sit outside in a peaceful oasis that is delineated by walls and houses. Coffee is quite good, cheap, and the service is reasonably friendly.
  • Café Montmartre
    Řetězová 7, Praha 1
    No café latte here but a pretty good café au lait. As a matter of fact, easily the best café au lait in town. It’s fun to sit outside or by the window and see tourists file by.
  • Café Louvre
    Národní 20, Prague 1
    Quite a view: a long, spacious room, with two smaller ones attached. Walking up the stairs to the second floor where the Café Louvre is located, you wouldn’t expect such a place. The kind of spot where you can take your mom, or even your significant other.
