You can go there whenever you want. I could recommend the visit before some show in the National Theatre. You will get wonderful food and drinks for very very reasonable price. I love the view over Prague Castle and also the live piano play.

We had breakfast at Café Slavia on a rainy Sunday morning (29/06/2014). We all enjoyed the food we ordered and found it extremely good value. We decided to go back there for dinner before leaving Prague. We experienced excellent service from our waitress and all enjoyed the local food again. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone visiting Prague... More

We went here for afternoon tea, based on the recommendation of our guide book. The Art Deco interior is really lovely and you could really imagine its history, full of literary types. The service was good , the tea hot and much needed and the baklava good, but not great. Really nice place but preferred the Grand Cafe Orient which... More

Great location (close to the center, opposite the National Theater), great food (try the gulash beef with dumplings, it's great) and great prices, really affordable... What more do you need? It also has a pianist playing at evenings, which makes the atmosphere even better.

Very atmospheric...a historic venue frequented by Vaclav Havel and others. Heavy smoking atmosphere, so be aware of that. Less "cafe friendly" than some others but still well worth a visit.

Crossing the border by OBB Railjet from Vienna, we didn't have high expectations in terms of modernisation of Prague city. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The tour guide praised the Karvarna Slavia Café, as we passed the place citing the many famous celebrities the frequented this place both now and years gone by. We decided to have lunch there and...

Good location right next to the Theatre, river Vltava and Charles Bridge. Really big place, lots of customers and many waiters running all the time. Somehow they manage to get food on the table quite fast. Nothing extra ordinary, but good enough and menu was large. Little tip, right next to the cafe in riverfront are many places where you...

Many years ago this cafe used to be one of the top meeting places. Its location - opposite National Theater and directly overlooking the Vltava River and the Prague Castle was an attraction not only for tourists but also for many prominent writers, politicians and artists. Now the coffee (espresso) on the scale from 1 to 10 is slightly over... More
