“Good tea and strudel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

It's a small clean and cozy place with good tea in leaves, cakes and some other food. You may also buy some tea or coffee. However it's missing a good view, there's only view of street from the glass entrance door. When you go out to visit WC you actually enter the living place. Seems like writer Peter Sis lives there as there are his photos and books there. Also there's a hat making atellier... Interesting place!

“Teahouse in Nerudova Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Great place to rest and reload your batteries. The teas are just wonderfull, the interior is calming, and the music is such a relief after an afternoon shopping, museumwalking or eating in a noisy restaurant.
The service was great and we also bought a pack of the fruit tea, and a little box of homemade sweeted ginger.
The only thing missing is a good assortiment of cakes and/or pies. It is really a place where you'd expect hundreds of muffins, scones and cakes in beautiful bell jars, but that was not the reality. A pity, because I think it would mean better bussines than the current menu of food (only baklava, appelstrudel and couscous)

“A place right out of a dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

After too many too touristic places, entering the U Zeleneho Caje was a big relief - all stress subsided. And if you are there, enjoy the pictures of Czech's painter Petr Sis (now living in New York) - the U Zeleneho Caje is owned by his brother. And don't forget to see the garden, whenever possible sit down there for some minutes.

“I love to come here on Winter evenings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

This is a very charming and home-like tea house right on the main street leading to the Prague castle. I love tea and come here often. It is especially nice for an intimate and quiet time with a good friend or with my mom; when we can sit around, drink delicious tea and talk quietly. I love their wall painting with road disappearing at the horizon... always makes me wonder where it leads. They also have very nice picture books which are fun to look at while having yet another cup of tea.
Apart from tea, I enjoy their warm halva desert - mmm, vrery tasty.
My most favorite time to visit this place is on cold Autumn or Winter evenings. You feel enveloped in warm and cozy atmosphere and would never want to leave :).

“Tons of atmosphere and hit the spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

We stopped at this lovely cafe after hours at the castle just as rain clouds were passing through. What a treat! Extensive teas menu. They were out of the savory we wanted to order but the apple strudel was delicious. We admired the beautiful ceramic mugs and teapots made by a Czech artist and bought a mug and saucer as a special souvenir. The perfect place to linger and soak in the atmosphere of this charming neighborhood.
