Located in the corner of pretty Karlin streets this is recently one of the most popular cafes in Prague, ranking high in all the lists. It seems to be always full of people but there’s a good explanation for that: the atmosphere is lively, friendly and informal and it’s just a perfect place to catch up with friends over a drink, do some work or sit down and relax with a book. When you find a place to sit you can enjoy some fresh coffee, delicious cakes or – in the summer time – refreshing drinks like cucumber lemonade (totally recommended!). They also offer beer from some Czech microbreweries as well as breakfast and some light food. It’s well worth a trip to Karlin and can be a good starting point for exploring the area!

Literally few steps away from Dos Mundos these two places couldn’t be more different yet both are pretty awesome. Being in Dobra Trafika just feels good, like you stepped back in time into the old fashioned grandma’s house. In the summer time there’s also a quiet garden where you can relax while sipping your drink. The cafe is hidden behind the small shop (where I bought my awesome 2015 calendar!), finding it is a pure pleasure! They have another location on Ujezd.

Next to Masarykovo Nadrazi and few steps away from Florenc bus station this small cafe seems to be one of the most hip places for a drink in the city. It’s minimalist, the clientele is trendy, the coffee is good and the options are wide. The place is so hipster they don’t even have wifi, but I liked it anyway :)

Technically it’s a cinema, the alternative one, considered one of the best in Prague. But there’s also a bar and a cafe and overall the place is just perfect. Some say it’s the most hipster spot in Holesovice but I can’t blame people for liking it that much as it’s a pretty awesome place and I fell for it too! The movie selection is really good there so no matter what you will have a quality time there. Also, my Polish friend Anna works there and thanks to her I’m more or less updated what cool events happen there. If you see her around say hi!
Another place I discovered thanks to Anna. Down the road from Bio Oko it’s a typical intellectual Vienna style cafe with a very laid-back atmosphere. I could spend hours there, reading a book and sipping coffee!
The first bitcoin cafe in the world! The place is really quirky but at the same time so amazing! There’s no typical counter, just a big table in the middle where a selection of snacks, a coffee machine and the menu can be found. It’s hard to say who works there and who is just a customer. The space is designed to be a creative hub, and that’s the best word that can describe the interior. Upstairs is the working space where everyone can rent a desk to do their job in that friendly environment. Such an unique place, I have found it only thanks to the alternative Prague tour!
One of the best places for breakfast in Prague and the coffee is pretty decent there too! It has two locations, in the center and in Holesovice – I was in the second one and really enjoyed it! It’s stylish, welcoming and hip, the perfect place to meet up with friends. The open space makes it different than most of the restaurants. And the food was so yummy!
Another excellent food/drink place in Holesovice! Very popular among the young and cool clientele that fit perfectly to the modern interior. The food is to die for (with many vegetarian options, I was in heaven), so are drinks. It’s well worth a short tram ride from the center to get the hip Prague experience, away from the crowds.
Somehow an icon of Prague’s alternative night life with a quirky yet awesome interior and surroundings (I really would love to peak inside of the head of the person who has designed it). There’s a really good cafe upstairs, they serve food too (veggie burger was really delicious!). Definitely a must in Prague!
In the center yet not visited by many tourists. A really pleasant place with tasty, fair trade coffee, yummy snacks and bright, modern interior. Seems like a perfect place to get some work done or to meet up with friends. They have cafes in different locations too!
Another quirky place: bike repair / cafe. They have three location: in Zizkov, at Naplavka and in MeetFactory – I’ve been to all of them and they were pretty awesome but the most I enjoyed the one in Zizkov. It’s the best especially in the summertime when you can sip your drink and relax in the green scenery that used to be a train tracks.
Another place discovered thanks to the alternative tour that I’m looking forward to get to know better. Somehow similar with the look and atmosphere to Kavarna Liberal. It’s slightly touristy but still great and vibrant, with the intellectual atmosphere an a big bone hanging from the ceiling. In the next room the alternative theatre and the contemporary gallery can be found.
Typical Prague fancy cafes: Slavia and Louvre
A must visit for every person visiting Prague for the first time! Beautiful interior, the feel of the past high life and the old times charm make for an ultimate Prague experience!
