We dropped in for coffee and to sample some of the delicious looking patisseries the cafe had to offer. Food was good as expected but the service was very poor indeed. Staff gave the impression they really couldn't be bothered and when we tried to attract someone (anyone's!) attention we eventually had to give up.
There seemed to be lots of staff all dashing around looking busy but although the place was almost empty they seemed to miss us! We usually always leave a tip but in this case we decided to only leave something if the waitress smiled when she came to take the money, she didn't so we didn't!

We enjoyed several sandwich, coffee & cakes in this fabulous French style patisserie. They have all their cakes, pastries, quiches & sandwich all on display which makes choosing torture as you want to try them all. It is easy to find follow the road behind the large statue in the square down passed the Irish bar (yes even in Prague). The staff are helpful and help with trying to pronounce the names correctly. This patisserie is everything I expected to see in Paris but didn't. If you fancy a cake or pastry don't miss this little gem but there are plenty of patisserie as you wander.

Great french style cafe, with pastries, quiche, sandwiches, coffees and teas. Nice interior with a high ceiling and clear, bright glass cases showing off the pastries and prepared foods. We had breakfast here a couple of times during a stay and we always had good service, great food, and the experience was pleasant.

This is a beautiful little cafe, with high ceilings and tiled walles and floors and Small tables that give it a Paris feel. There is a wide selection of relatively healthy and what looks to be home-made foods such as quiches, cakes and icecream. Good place for tea or just to indulge. Staff are friendly and responsive, and there is lounge music playing in the background.

We stopped here three times for breakfast on our way to Old Town. The pastries and coffee were excellent! Wish we would have been near when it was lunch time as everything looked wonderful!
