We wanted to play one of their board games as we had done before. This was our 3rd time back. However, since it was a projection night with a lot of people (a lot of people around) serving was slow. Moreover, we preferred food from next door but drinks from the Globe and kindly asked if we could sit next... More

Everyone recommends Globe. As a family staying on the same street we ventured there twice and were disappointed on both occasions. The rear terrace/garden is hardly atmospheric with a view of elevators and bins. Brunch, which comes highly recommended it seems, was lacklustre; generous in portions but eggs benedict for my wife and I were served lukewarm with cold hash... More

I studied in Prague for months and lived on the same street as Globe but didn't visit until May. I definitely made up for lost time and went multiple times a week. Their bookstore is perfect for browsing and sitting to study because it's quiet and I've taken many friends to the back for their food. It was so nice... More

Visited here after a night out in Prague. Globe offers great breakfast options from pancakes to eggs to a fully cooked breakfast. I went for the lumberjack option which was a cooked breakfast accompanied by french toast which was exactly what I needed after a night out. Even the food was good service was pretty slow so if you're not... More

Sought this out as heard good things about it and very glad I did. Great menu for lunch, reasonable prices and comfortable seating. English widely spoken and not rushed out. Ended up going twice so that is a sign of a great place.

I have eaten here three times, the menu is geared to ex pats , and I really enjoyed my first visit to the Globe and the Chilli cheeseburger, and the chocolate cake,subsequent visits have been a bit disappointing, the Sunday brunch breakfast burger which was served with what was listed as a hash brown on the menu was more like...

Great selection of books if you look for English language books but also translated Czech authors. Many expatriates not only english speaking hang out there. Bizarrely enough there is a big US flag greeting you when you get in, possibly to lure in the wandering American that is looking out for the golden arches or the burger-king logo to feel... More

This bookstore/restaurant was recommended by a bookstore manager from London, UK. It is one of the few places in Prague where you can find English titled books and magazines. At the rear is a basic restaurant with a varied menu that caters to the lunch and later night crowd. Lots of dishes that are not traditional Czech or Hungarian food... More

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.
