The area
Address
Neighborhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

Golem in the cellar
Aug 2021 • Couples
Reviews for Werichova vila should really describe the building, where the famous Czech actor lived qnd the museum dedicated to his memory. The café should be reviewed elsewhere. The building is located in the beautiful Kampa island, not too far from the Charles Bridge. We bought our tickets on site, the staff was very kind and they pointed us in the right direction. Upstairs there are living quarters of the famous actor, a little sitting room with TV and the actor’s fishing gear. In the next room there is his writing desk and typewriter, a liquor cabinet where he stored his favorite Ballantine’s whiskey, beer for guests in the window. Another room shows off the actor’s works, there is a manually interactive quiz for his fans, matching quotes to his movies. It is not a big museum but very well done and an additional pleasant surprise was the Golem in the cellar, with a short video about it.

Repeated bad experience
Sep 2019
While the place has genius loci and the desserts are tasty and nice, the whole experience we had (repeatedly) was not pleasant because of the incompetent staff. When we entered, we were not greeted by the staff (two bored people busy chatting among themselves) and waited for 10 minutes just to be given the menu. Add another 10-15 minutes for staff to return to take the order. Then add another 20-30 minutes for your coffee to arrive. Pay and go (add additional half an hour for the process). Do not expect any greeting or even an attempt to ask about your experience when you leave. So this Friday, when we entered and waited first 10 minutes to be noticed (the place was half-empty), we decided to leave and walked to another place (we chose Smetana Q instead).
While I am a fan of Jan Werich and while we genuinely like Ms. Mladkova and have an aptitude for fine desserts without fussing about the price, we expect certain standards in places which treat customers. Unfortunately Werichova vila treats customers like they are a nuisance.

Sophisticated Option in the Kampa park
Mar 2019
We are frequent guests at the beautifully reconstructed villa at the edge of the Kampa park. The downstairs cafe is an elegant place well lit by large windows. My kids drink babyccino (whipped hot milk), love to play outside in the park or go down to the cellar to watch a short movie about the Golem legend. Meanwhile, I enjoy a glass of wine and coffee served in elegant glassware and settings. If you don´t mind the callories, try one of the desserts which the cafe owner is famous for. The only minus is the "museum charge" which I think they add to the bill (we do not get charged as repeated customers, I suppose).

Crowded with great food
Jan 2019 • Couples
Crowded on Saturday afternoon. Can be a little inconvenient sitting close to the waiting visitors. Service was very attentive. Nice coffee and excellent choice of cakes.

Werichova Villa sparkled
Oct 2018
We went to the Werichova villa to see the Ticket to the New World exhibit by the Czech National Trust during October 's 2018 celebration of the 100th year anniversary of the formation of Czechoslovakia. The exhibit was well done and shows the bond between Czechs and Americans pre and during WWII. My Czech-American father, Dr. O. A. Holzer, story and collection of letters and photographs was featured on the 3rd floor. A better entrance I think would aide in showcasing what is regularly available at the villa. The villa is located in a beautiful park not so regularly visited by tourists, along the edge of the Vltava river where the beauty is magificient.

The Werichova vila, a sweetshop inside
Oct 2018 • Friends
The Werichova vila, inside there is a sweetshop, is located in the Prague part called Mala Strana, specifically Kampa. You can buy a guided tour there as well as downstairs it is a nice place to have a cup of coffee or a delicious dessert. A coffee can be taken away too. There's a nice, attentive staff; as for prices, they are little bit higher, related to the place, close to the center and it's often stuffed by tourists and visitors... Obviously they love it - the said "genius loci" (a spirit of the place)!

GREAT Spot!!
Sep 2018 • Family
We went on an AMAZING food tour with Prague Food Tour and our awesome guide, George, left us a map with other places he suggested for food and drinks. This was one of them and we loved it!

It’s a beautiful old home near the river and a lovely park. It is hard to see the name and you wonder if you’re in the right place but I believe that makes it even more special.

There seemed to be several locals there which is always a good sign, in my opinion. The coffee and desserts were EXCELLENT and the service was friendly and professional. We had a very relaxing time here and a nice break from all the walking but still in a beautiful spot with a lovely view.

Perfect resting point
Aug 2018 • Friends
After many hours walking seeing the sites we passed this little gem of a place as we cut through Kampa park back to our hotel , you would not know it sold a superb selection of cakes & pastries as well as gorgeous ice cream . There are deck chairs outside or you can walk through to the back of the building and enjoy an ice cream in the seating area at the side of the river. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to Prague

Great for a coffee break
Aug 2018 • Family
After a full day of walking the street of Prague we needed a rest and a snack. Not far from the Charles Bridge and the John Lennon wall we found this beautiful place in a nice park. We ordered inside and were able to carry out everything and sit in the patio chairs out front. All the cakes looked so beautiful and delicious we had trouble deciding but the one we did pick was excellent- as was the coffee and the cocktails.
