I am still riding high on that Prague hype and to be quite honest, I have no plans to come down anytime soon! Following my recent trip to the beautiful city, I came across five gorgeous little cafes and eateries that were both as aesthetically pleasing as they were tasty! I wanted to put together this little blog post as a guide and inspiration in case you were looking for those ‘Instagram Cafes’ in Prague, somewhere worthy of being on your Instagram feeds (whilst being delicious, of course.)
Situated on Rytířská 10, Café Café was the first stop on my cafe/restaurant list that I made whilst in Prague. I liked how stylish the decor was and particularly liked the Vogue Czech covers blown up on the wall as you walked in which instantly made the place feel chic! Perfect for that Instagram shot. I opted for their avocado and ham sandwich which was so, so tasty and wolfed it down with a rum and coke! You can find Café Café just 2 minutes away from Old Town Square, ideal if you’re wanting to stay within that area, and if you like industrial decor with a twist of glamour, then I would advise you to check it out!
Cafefin was a real hidden gem that I had no idea about until somebody recommended it to me on my first night! A cute, cosy, warm, little cafe found at Nám. Jiřího z Poděbrad 4, 120 00, Praha 2. This cafe in terms of logistics and to get a better idea of where to find it - if you were at Charles Bridge or Old Town Square then it is a good 40 minute walk away. Yes that’s right, 4-0 minutes. Of course, there is the tram service which would get you there a lot quicker, however, if you want to really soak in the atmosphere and get away from the busy, touristy, hustle and bustle, then the 40 minute walk isn’t so bad! I actually enjoyed walking around and got a real authentic feel to Prague whilst looking up at the stunning architecture of the buildings along the way. Once I arrived, I opted for the ‘big breakfast’ which came with sausages, eggs, toast, avocado, beans, salad and bacon. A real feast with a very Instagrammable ‘Pink Latte’ to wash it down with!
Now, Bar Cobra was right up my street. Slick, understated with a real chilled out vibe! On the outside, you could easily walk right past it without knowing what it was, but once inside, the decor had an industrial feel to it and the rounded ceiling gave an impression that was reminiscent to a bunker? I didn’t get food from here as I found it was more of a bar than a cafe/restaurant and I opted for Kraken Rum - neat, and similar to Cafefin, Bar Cobra was around a 30 minute walk from Old Town Square but in the opposite direction, just behind the National Technical Museum. Bar Cobra can be found at Milady Horákové 8, Praha 7 and there you will find many Instagram opportunities!
EMA ESPRESSO BAR
I visited EMA Espresso Bar on my last morning arriving there at 10am and looking back, I wish I had got there a little earlier… It was rather busy when I went (but with good reason!) I went for a latte which was probably the nicest latte I had had during my trip to Prague, and I’ll admit, I panicked slightly when deciding what to eat as I didn’t understand what each items were, so out of panic I pointed to this pizza shaped looking treat with berries on top. You’re probably thinking ‘ew’, but honestly, it was SO tasty! Plus, it was covered in berries so I classed that as my ‘5 a day’… Despite being busy, I managed to grab a seat by the window and it was nice to just pass a little time, people watching and hearing the different languages that people spoke around me. The interior was clean, minimalistic and very modern. Instagram heaven! EMA (the one at Masaryk Railway Station) - Na Florenci 3, Praha 1.
Prior to arriving in Prague, no matter which Instagram account I looked on for Prague inspiration, I kept seeing these ice cream treats everywhere! I did a little investigating and found that although you can get these ice cream treats pretty much anywhere (and everywhere) in Prague, Good Food do them the best. I think what sets Good Food apart from the others is that they base their designs solely for the purpose of Instagram, and well, just look at what me and my friend had! I had the ‘Strawberry Kiss’ and my friend opted for the ‘Devils Chimney’. A definite must if you’re visiting Prague! You can find Good Food 30 yards away from Charles Bridge on the Klementinium side.
I hope this guide has helped you for any future trips to Prague that you may have coming up, and to add some inspiration to your Instagram feeds! These were definitely my favourite spots whilst I was there, and I will most certainly be returning to these again on my next trip. Let me know what you think down below, possibly any new cafes/bars I should check out next time?
