Great selection of books if you look for English language books but also translated Czech authors. Many expatriates not only english speaking hang out there. Bizarrely enough there is a big US flag greeting you when you get in, possibly to lure in the wandering American that is looking out for the golden arches or the burger-king logo to feel... More

This bookstore/restaurant was recommended by a bookstore manager from London, UK. It is one of the few places in Prague where you can find English titled books and magazines. At the rear is a basic restaurant with a varied menu that caters to the lunch and later night crowd. Lots of dishes that are not traditional Czech or Hungarian food... More

Has a really nice vibe to the place. We only had starters but the magnificent portions served as a main within themselves. Liked the atmosphere and it was good to sit amongst the books.

My friend and I went here for a late breakfast and to find some good books. I had the "Lumberjack", which included everything the eponymous grand slam from Denny's includes, albeit at a much higher level of deliciousness. The french toast was great with really good syrup--a welcome departure from Czech food. The smoothies were OK. Beware--they only serve breakfast... More

We had diner on the outside terrace. Furniture was very basic and there was no light but a candle creates a special atmosphere although a little dark to see what's on your plate. We had chicken Cesar wraps and salad, a sandwich and Greek salad. All were very tasteful and crispy fresh. Good price for the quality!

We were here for the books rather than the cafe part so all I can really comment on is the decor ;) The bar area at the back seemed packed though and the place is obviously popular among locals (and expats). Bear in mind that at the moment it's obscured by scaffolding and very easy to miss.

Stayed very near this cafe/bookstore, looked for a good place for a breakfast- this place had really great freshly made waffles. The service is also very good. I recommend it to everyone.

Visited twice, the first time checked out the books and the second to give it another chance. Book stock is great but utterly charmless staff intent only on their computer. Customer interest completely lacking. It is nice to be able to browse without pressure but a bit of attention creates warm fuzzies and sales. Second time sprawled in the armchairs... More

Very nice place to have couple of drinks! Funny artwork on the walls and music performances at night. Lovely bookstore with interesting books. Very lovely and cheerful staff. Not too pricy and totally smoke-free! Worth to visit!

This is a great place to relax, grab an English book, and meet fellow travelers / English speaking visitors. Food is decent, staff are effective. Lots of events throughout the week. English bookstore. Selection is limited but decent enough.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
