On my way up the hill to see Prague castle I pass the entrance and continued to walk up the little street to see what kind of life was going on there. Obviously given the big attraction up the street you’d expect a fair amount of tourist places, but tucked in between the souvenir crap and the usual hamburger, pizza and goulash joints were some real gems…I walked by an very traditional tea house that I almost went in but was looking for hardier fare and ended up in the rustic and lovely U Zavesenyho Kafe
Right around the corner from my hotel (Hotel Josef – watch for a hotel post discussing the pros and cons of the places I stayed in) was the famous cubist building House of the Black Madonna which is now a museum with a cute cafe on the second floor called the Grand Cafe Orient
The reason to go is the room.
The food is basically Eastern European Ladies who lunch fare. I think you’d be best to have a coffee and a sweet. My Wurst plate was OK but a little slim – more a snack then lunch. Really the focus here is dessert. It’s a quiet place to sit and watch the goings on down below and admire the vistas of Prague.
