At first peek through the window I though I better stick to Starbucks across the street but glad that I went in for afternoon coffee to see that the prices were very reasonable and the coffee, food and service outstanding. Also the art deco surroundings makes for a very memorable experience. Try the strudel-generous serve and delicious warmed up.

I had high expectations and I wasn't too impressed - food was fine but nothing outstanding. We were seated in a back room so we didn't really see much of the nice decor. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. Nice kids menu though.

Classical cafe' with a rich tradition, in Namesti Republicky. We had Karlsbad coffee (coffee with becherovka, that is), tea and desserts and there were above average. Also, the staff was friendly and prices reasonable.

Lovely cafe. Great atmosphere and service. The cakes are delicious and this place provides a welcome break from the busy city. Visited twice 11 years apart. Nothing changed, simply wonderful.

You're here for an art nouveau experience, dining in a set-piece preserved hotel, formerly run as a state workers collective but now offering a good, old-fashioned hotel-service restaurant.

Café Imperial has a great breakfast buffet. We tried it on our first day in Prague, and ended up having breakfast their all three days. There is a good variety of food and fresh juices. The price for the breakfast buffet was very reasonable. Highly recommend this place for breakfast.

Dinner in Café Imperial was really enjoyment. So nice place with delicious meal and very frinedly and professional stuff. We had braised beef with creamy sauce with bread dumplings and cranberries, veal schnitzel with mashed potatoes, corn fed chicken breast with vegetable ratatouille and ice cream. Everything was fresh and very tasty.

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.
