After leaving Paris for Prague, we were a bit homesick for a nice patisserie. We were told to go to The Bake Shop and enroute we passed this lovely place and decided to stop in for a light lunch. I had lasagna, my friend had a salad with chicken and it was not only reasonable with good portions but it had a lovely atmosphere, too. We ended up here 3 times over 3 days. Twice for lunch and once because we couldn't resist their pastry any longer! Everything we had was very good. We did end up visiting The Bake Shop but we weren't impressed enough with it to eat there. This place was much nicer for a sit down meal.

The delicious looking cakes, pastries and savouries drew us in. Everything we ate was as good as it looked. They even had a family favourite - croque Monsieur. The decor was comfortably elegant and bohemian at the same time, echoing memories of a Paris where one met in cafés to discuss grand ideas.

We were walking in Prague and saw this place with all sorts of nice cakes and quiches on display. The service was a little slow. The place was cozy and nice. My husband's pasta (with béchamel) was delicious! Creamy and with lots of salmon. My salad was good. I recommend it for cakes and also the daily menu because it is good an inexpensive.

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.
