Are you a morning person who likes to indulge in a mighty fine breakfast or rather a sleepyhead who prefers a later brunch? Then we are going to share 5 Prague's hot spots for great breakfast or brunch with you. We believe that there is no better way to start your day than good, hearty breakfast. Breakfast is even more important when you travel. Just picture yourself looking into your guides and planning your day over a good breakfast in a nice café.
Eating out at breakfast time in Prague is a lot more fun than just eating your morning meal in your hotel. Hotel breakfasts are the same all over the world and you can hardly notice in which part of the world you are. See our picks for the best breakfast places in Prague.
CAFÉ Můj Šálek Kávy
Prague has its fair share of Cafés, which serve breakfast and brunch, but not that many of them can compete with Můj šálek Kávy (translates to My Cup of Coffee). Café is located in Karlín, the Prague quarter full of architecturally impressive buildings, good restaurants and wine bars. The smell of quality coffee that hits you on entrance will be a welcome treat to your senses. It has a funky interior decór, painted brick wall, floor to ceiling blackboards and oversized lights.
If you are looking for a familiar western style way to start your day, this Café is the best choice. Their breakfast menu is truly delicious. They serve items like pancakes, yogurt with homemade granola and lots of eggs options. During my recent visit I ordered my favorite Eggs Benedict. My poached eggs with Prague ham were cooked perfectly. Můj šálek Kávy is always packed, especially on the weekdays, when it is very difficult to find a seat, but its energetic charming atmosphere and great coffee really make it up to it.
We come to CAFÉ LOUVRE for it's atmosphere. Louvre's elegant French themed interior always takes us back to old Prague. The Café used to be visited by those who belonged to the "cream of Czech Society" or who had contacts in the arts or in literature or who worked in the world of science. We like the idea that we can eat and drink our coffee in the same place that the famous Czech writers Karel Čapek, Franz Kafka or even world famous physicist Albert Einstein used to sit. CAFÉ LOUVRE makes a great stop for breakfast. It is also a great place to start your day in Prague. The historical interior, the very helpful, professional and friendly staff and the delicious and well-presented food, always make our visit of LOUVRE very special. For cakes, definitely try the apple strudel, black forest cake and LOUVRE cheesecake. They are truly irresistible.
If you are looking for a nice quiet place to sit, read a book and escape the city bustle, we recommend you to visit Monolog. We like their "Health Breakfast" with farmer's yogurt, oatmeal cookies, Acacia honey and blueberry and vanilla sauce. If you prefer a savory breakfast, you can not make a mistake by going for egg omelet or farmer's sausage. In addition, they have nice selection of homemade cakes or pies.
This old-school glamour Café is one of our favorite breakfast places in the city. The Savoy, a restaurant and coffee house, is found on the bank of the Vltava River not far from Kampa island. This is a fine-looking space, with a beautiful restored and brightly painted ceiling and wine bottles lining the walls. They have a good breakfast menu with plenty of healthy choices, as well as full English and American breakfasts, and eggs cooked half-a-dozen ways. We love their French toast, one of the best in the city. As we are not big fans of their coffee, we went for hot chocolate, which was made of real milk and high quality cocoa and brought in its own little jug. Although the Café is very busy, it is very well run by the always friendly black-and-white suited waiting staff.
Breakfast at Náplavka
If you want to taste a real local production and a great atmosphere, go to Farmer's Markets at Náplavka. Every Saturday you can find Farmer's Markets at the riverbank of Vltava near to Palackého Náměstí. Local farmers offer fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, sausages, homemade cakes, beer and cider. We like to go there early in the morning to avoid the huge crowds. We can not resist having cup of coffee from the Mamma coffee stand and sweet pancakes with lavender syrup and fresh cream. When the weather cooperates, we sit on river banks and enjoy great food and wonderful atmosphere. (After writing this, we can not wait for next Saturday.)
