Stylish and delicious!

This is the most atmospheric cafe ever, and not because it's trying to be. It has a reputation as a literary hangout, but there's no posturing. Lovely location in the centre of town, and yet a huge contrast from the rip-off touristy-ness of most of Prague's Old Town. Take a table that looks out over the street, and you will... More

It is a beautiful cafe with some seating allowing a perfect river view (that we were lucky enough to get) You walk in, and it feels old and grand with high ceilings and the decor of a grand old tea room.. And then you walk past the pianist who smiles at you as you look around to pick a table.... More

This was an unexpected pleasurable dining experience. We had passed the cafe a number of times walking to the 22 Tram stop, noticing it was almost always full with folks who appeared to be locals. At times, it's a little daunting walking in these local cafes. The waiter was very nice, even tho we spoke no Czech and he spoke... More

The second you step through the door you are transported back to the 1920's. The setting is similar to a large scale tea room / restaurant. The resident piano player is awesome and you almost drift off back in time. The waiters offer a 5 star service tending to your every need with a silver service approach. The food was... More

Close to our hotel we found this place, perfect for brunch. Art nouveau style, good service and a plentiful menu. If you are lucky, the piano player will make you feel like you're back in the 20's.

This was out last meal in Prague before flying home and we made a good choice.The food was very tasty,I had the lamb and my wife the salmon.The desserts were also loved and my request for more ice cream rather the fresh cream was duly accommodated,many a restaurant would have refused such a request.

At dark, the well-lit Prague sunset is an amazing view and the Kavarna Slavia Cafe is probably the best place to enjoy it. Simply pick a table by the window facing the river and enjoy a superb view, preferably at night.

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
