Located a very short distance off of the Old Town main square, Country Life serves excellent, well prepared vegan cuisine at a very reasonable price. An excellent alternative to the heavy Czech dishes of other restaurants
While searching quite unsuccessfully for healthful and reasonably priced food in Prague's tourist area with overpriced, fat-laden and rich foods, we came upon Country Life and decided to give it a try. It turned out better than we could ever have imagined!!! Everything was delicious,...well-prepared, nicely served and incredibly reasonable in price. This isn't where most tourists go!!!! Locals know about it! The entrance doesn't face the street-you go through a walkway first. The interior is charming with tables made a recycled woods-very interesting and rustic. We had a lovely lunch in a quiet atmosphere away from the crowds! Our 4 take away desserts cost $4.00!!! Lunch for 2: only $15.00 including a large bottle of ale!!! We will go back for sure!!!More
This is a hidden pearl. You can get a very very cheap and delicious meal. It's like a cafetaria. You can also take away for trips. We went there 5 times and the last time took food for the train trip back home
It was...delicious!! Make sure you did this!More
This is a cafe adjoining a very good health food shop. It's comfortable and friendly and the food was extremely varied, fresh, creative and delicious. We ended up going there two days in a row we liked it so much. You just take as many...different plates as you like and choose from a range of salads, soups, cooked dishes and thenthe plate is weighed at the end. Our meal came to about 8 Euros each. Highly recommended for a tasty, healthy and budget friendly lunch:)More
Having visited Country Life more than 15 years ago, I was expecting again a good deal and some tasty Czech cuisine - time has not been kind to the pricing and the food was more international than Czech, but the new seating area was really...nice! There truly isn't a lot of choice for vegetarians in Prague except vegetarian restaurants, so it's great this is so central and remains an option! Service was friendly and the attached store had a great choice of veg foods too.More
In the middle of the city, few meters from Astronomical clock, bit hidden from tourist route you can find probably the oldest vegetarian restaurant in Prague. Interior is very simple, very nice. Self service. Daily menu. On food and salad bar you will find cca...20 types of salads, 10 types of hot dishes, two types of soups, sauces and will get water for free.
The cost is according of weight.
Food is very tasty, light, not much spice and not spicy at all.
For vegans and vegetarians, strongly recommended.
As well as the main shop and restaurant they have several smaller ones in Prague. Also their products are sold by many of the Health and Organic Food Shops. The main shop needs to be enlarged and modernised as it gets ever more popular! I...like their good value grains and nuts and cereals sold by weight and you help yourself. best value. Their organic vegeatables are a bit pricey and can vary in quality.
The self service restaurant has a huge variety of salads and dressings so be careful not to fill your plate before you reach the selection of hot dishes and soup. Also some nice cold desserts. A hot dessert of the day would be a nice addition as they do with the soup specially in winter!
The cafe could use a facelift and some decoration as its a bit drab and dated now.
Good value and healthy AND tasty!More

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.
