I received a cappuccino with a long hair inside of it. I asked for a new one because of the hair as it is in my opinion disgusting and should not be found in any restaurant’s food. Of course, this at times does happen. In...this case restaurants usually give a new item without any issues and apologize for the inconvenience. Not here. The waitress put the hairy cappuccino in the bill and when I asked about it she said it was not their fault I did not want to drink it. Don’t go here unless you want to pay for hairy drinks and bad service.More

Simply fantastic food and so friendly staff. Everything on the menu is healthy and so delicately presented. And everything just tastes fantastic from the coffee to everything we tried on the menu (and we went here every day for 3 days 😊) Can definitely recommend...it!More

We were staying at an apartment on the same street and while we waited to get in, having just arrived from overseas, we had lunch at Monk. The staff were incredibly friendly and efficient and the food just so fresh and delicious. As we sat...outside in the sunshine having a wonderful meal we felt that it was just the perfect start to our vacation. We liked it so much that we came back three more times in our four day visit! The staff and the food just couldn’t be better!More

Went to Bistro Monk for brunch and were pretty disappointed. We both had Eggs Benedict and the eggs were not cooked long enough and were too runny. Also the crusts of the bread were too hard and it was really difficult to cut it. You...really had to destroy it to get a manageable piece. For the price you pay, and it is quite expensive for Prague standards, you expect more. Finally, the place is too popular for its own good. You can‘t really linger because there is a line of people.More

We really liked this place a lot. Food was tasty, environment & music was fine & service (especially the young women) was excellent. Prices were quite high, but the quality was high as well. I would certainly visit it again.

Everything was phenomenal over there. Breakfast - generous and super tasty. Waiters - friendly, helpful, and smiling. Mint tea is made from mint leaves served in a brewer (enough for two cups). It's a must-have place to visit if you're in Prague and you want...to eat breakfast!More

We both had the bali breakfast. Most of it was great, the poached eggs were perfect. The bread just needed toasting quite a bit more as it got a bit soggy wih all the avocado on top of it. Coffee and juicrs were great.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the

square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
