Bistro is situated in heart of Prague close to Lennon wall and Church – Infat Jesus of Prague. It is very simple but nice. I like the left part of bistro with sofa. I had a great Créme Brulée and tea with fresh mint. Service was kind and there was also food offer.

We visited here for lunch, I had the soup of the day which was carrot and potato, and my girlfriend had a ham and cheese baguette. We both enjoyed our food, I was especially impressed with the soup. The waitress was very friendly, and the café had free WiFi also which was a bonus.

Stopped here with friends for a quick lunch. Lovely simple French style cafe, with very helpful service. We all chose the baguette and were really impressed by the quality. Light and crisp with great fillings. Thoroughly recommended if you want a taste of real French bread rather than the heavy types others make to imitate the real thing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ bread!

Got the royal breakfast and it was delicious! Coffee, real oj, croissant, baguette, egg baked with a wonderful cheese and ham. All wonderful although a bit pricey. Worth it though.

We had a lovely breakfast here, everything was fresh, warm and delicious. The staff was also friendly. I'd recommend this place for a brekkie, but I don't know how it is for other meals :-)

We stopped here en route by chance. It is a lovely little place, with seating outside on the pavement. We shared a cheese platter and nice coffees. Very pleasant !

Called in for breakfast, but menu had changed. Even though they had croissants on display we got steered to the lunch menu which is very limited. Lovely quiet location near Lennon wall We spent 42 pounds on three ham and cheese toasted and a croissant. Not impressed with the value for money.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
