I recently celebrated my birthday and was fortunate that I found this jewel! Located near the main bus and train stations, however tucked back from the noisy streets. Wonderful food and creative non alcoholic drinks. We had a great waiter also. If you are in...the near, well worth a visit to revive and refresh yourself. Menu is fresh, creative and changes daily according to seasonal offerings. I will definitely be coming here again!More

It is a pity that the place is closed on the weekend, so you can have a fantastic brunch only on weekdays. The staff is extremly nice, the place has a warm and inviting atmosphere.

23.10.15 First visit to 'Born in London' following recommendation from a friend in Krumlov. Noticed the obviously English signage when walking by a week ago. Called in for an early morning coffee. English themed decor and menu. Met the English speaking proprietor - twelve years...catering/cheffing experience in top quality establishments in London. Excellent guy with genuine and infectious passion for food and, unusually, English cuisine and culture. Returned for lunch to sample the menu. Lengthy chat with host and English inspired grub to tempt. Passed up the chance of fish and chips in favour of steak and ale on a bed of potato and carrot mash. Rich, full flavour with a real hint of home. Beer, tea and Pavlova to finish. Slightly shabby chic decor with an English edge. Clean, comfortable, warm, friendly and accomplished. Seem to have stumbled on a real gem and WILL return soon for the fish and chips. Would definitely recommend 'Born in London' for something distinctly different with a definite English edge. Interior, menu, food, and husband/wife proprietors combine to provide a most pleasant and positive dinning experience. If you think English food has little to offer 'Born in London' will make you think again.More

I went to Born in London cafe with my girlfriend couple of times this summer, while visiting my family in South of Czech. As a Londoner I wanted to try this new place out of curiosity and as a alternative to the classic Czech dumpling...fare, which I have usually enough after couple of meals a year. We were nicely surprised and returned following day to try more of their lovely food. The service was tiptop, attentive but not in your face and the food was even better. Well recommending this place to everyone heading for Ceske BudejoviceMore

I've eaten here several times with my family, and tonight brought my ESL class (10 Czech adult students) to experience an "evening in London." The owner bent over backwards to accommodate my class, going so far as to print menus in English just for us...and to speak only in English to them. It wasn't only a great learning experience for them, as they had to read and order in English, but it was also outstanding food as always. The fish and chips are to die for - just make sure to get there early enough. Since they use only fresh fish, they can run out by dinner time. Also don't miss the Eton Mess for dessert - it is amazing. The only "problem" is that word is getting out about how good the food is, and it can be a little busy. Definitely one of the top places for lunch or dinner in South Bohemia!More

I ended up in this great place by chance only to be charmed by homey atmosphere, intriguing interiors and super friendly staff. The best of all was the food though. Absolutely yummy, I was delighted. Fantastic tastes, high quality ingredients, great presentation topped up with...tons of love and passion the local chef gives to every meal. I made this great cafe-restaurant my diner of choice and spoiled myself with a meal almost every day of my week long biztrip to CB. Fantastic, cheers guys, I'll be back.More

I have had the pleasure of eating her twice now and on both occasions it has been delicious. First meal was fish, chips and mushy peas and the second was fish cakes. The quality of the ingredients and the cooking was first class. The other...dishes I saw also looked great. I will definitely eat here again. Nice atmosphere, both inside and outside and very attentive staff.More
