“Wonderful Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

This is one of my favorite places in the city, fair prices, good food and a family feeling. Czech out a great lineup of beers including Staropramen and Spaten.

“Nice atmosphere, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2011

Happened upon this restaurant in an alley around the corner from Club Quarters. The menu is very limited - soups, salads, a few hour de vours, but the food is excellent. Had the best tomato soup ever and organic to boot. Salad presentation was great and enjoyed a very generous glass of wine. Decor is meant to feel like Prague and the waiters appear to be Czech, I assume speaking the native language. Price is also very reasonable. I'll be back on my next business trip.

“Hidden Gem in the Financial District!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2011

Great affordable menu and lots of choices. I stopped in here for a late night snack. Very european atmosphere and ambience. Better than I could have expected. I ordered an egg salad sandwich on multi grain bread which was paired with a lovely tomato soup that had gnocchi in it. Generous portions and only in the $10 range for both. Waiter/Bartender was friendly and efficient. He fixed the sandwich while I sat at the bar. The soup was great, too. Just right in the latter part of the evening! Lots to choose from on the late night menu. I asked about coming back for lunch and the bartender happily gave me the menu for review. Outstanding choices and great prices when you consider the high prices in San Francisco. Cash only and they have an ATM onsite which only has a $2.00 service fee! Wow. The owner sat next to me and is a native of Prague. I told him that I was quite impressed with his menus and the quality of the food. I saw Salad Nicoise, Goulash, Soups, Sandwiches, Polish sausage w/sauerkraut, Lox on bread, desserts and cheese plates. I cannot wait to go back and try most of that luscious menu. I felt like I was in Europe without the high prices. A much healthier alternative to eating pizza or subs at any time of the day or night!!!! Enjoy!
