Kavarna Velryba (The Whale)

Right down street from the Jazz Bar, also near Tesco. A smoky backroom, semi-subterranean upstairs with that sweet, sweet smell… Art gallery downstairs with skylights: different rotating local shows. Three rooms, each with a different feel. Painstakingly painted triangles (thousands of them) form the wall’s motif, this is an arty cafe, with a vegetarian friendly menu, quiet and cool by day, a see and be seen joint at night. Best price on absinthe in town. Cheap Becherovka, Espresso, teas, Hot chocolate, juice and wine any day of the week will suit you and the weather’s moods perfectly. Opatovická 24,...

Pizzeria Rugantino’s

If a good old fashioned pizza parlor is what you’re looking for, where you can get a hot, steaming pie on your picnic table in a real hurry, then Rugantio’s is where you go. Both the staff and the prices here are so friendly, you might even forget you’re in Prague. The pies are thick and crispy, with a standard range of options, but I find that their meat topped pizzas are the best. The decor is country western and well lit, so unless that lovely/hunk you’re trying to seduce is partial to hayrides, it’s not the ultimate date...
