One of the only places in Prague (maybe except for Onesip) to get a good cup of coffee. Most places serve a flat white or latte with this terrible tasting milk but this place uses fresh milk and know what they are doing. We had...the toast with ham, cheese and tomato. It was okay but I would prefer if they toasted it a bit longer so the cheese would melt a bit. I also tried their chocolate cake and it was unfortunately very dry. I like the ambiance and would come back for the coffee on my next visit.More

We have been a few days in Prague and went twice to EMA,which is our favorite cafe in Prague and,seeing how well frequented it is, a lot of people share our very same impression. The cafe has some indoor tables and a couple outside,has beautiful...large windows and is minimalistic. They offer a variety of coffee beverages,tea and some pastries. If you want to try specialty coffee this is the place to go to,as their beans really rock and are what I strive to copy as a coffee roaster myself. Prices are fair for the quality and staff is quick and rather friendly.More

Legendary Prague coffee shop. I went there with my wife for a quick break during a busy day of tourism in Prague. The coffee was really good, a flat white and a hand brew from Clever Dripper (barista said they make coffee in V-60 btw,...but they do in Clever :) I like both so didn’t make a big difference to me). Tasty beef sandwich, pretty good (but not outstanding) croissant.More

This is my third visit of this coffee shop and I have to say it has to be the best option for those who enjoy the good specialty coffee. Place is always crowded but staff seems to be dealing it with no problems. If you...are looking for good coffee stay I can only recommend you EMA.More

Went there around 10am, it was not crowded at all. I had the option to choose between sitting inside and outside. I tried a sandwich with cheese and also a croissant. It was the best croissant I had in a while. The staff is super...friendly. You order at the desk but they will serve it to you at the table. Nice location, close to the city and also pretty cheap compared to other coffee bars.More

This espresso bar is especially popular among students and coffee lovers due to its atmosphere and focus on quality. You can have a small food here as well. If you like Starbucks like coffee, then this is not place for you.

Best coffee in Prague and we tried a lot of coffee places. We had the coffee and the tea plus delicious freshly baked treats. Really close walk to the main square definitely worth a trip.

Got a recommendation from staff of the hostel I stayed at to visit this place and they did not disappoint! It's in the center, close to a metro station which is superb. The place itself is small but it's so cozy! I love everything from...the way it looks to the drinks, food and the staff! I tried all of their poppyseed desserts (because apparently I am addicted to poppyseeds lol) and even the way it was presented to me on a little tray made me very happy. These little things are just so nice sometimes! And the coffee is fantastic!!! Absolutely fantastic! I ordered only flat whites but those were awesome! I loved that there's this main table at the centre of the cafe, it feels very nice to just enjoy your meal sitting next to such a beautiful diverse crowd. The baristas were so nice and helpful, definitely made this place even better for me. Recommend this place 1000%!More

We normally visit Ema whenever we come back to Prague, so today we headed there for our coffee fix. I am a big fan of light roasts, but today the coffee seemed to come from darker beans than I am accustomed to. The coffees were...well-presented though and overall OK. Will come back hoping for different beans :)More
