Amazing Food in Prague!
Aside from the amazing architecture, colorful streets, breathtaking sunsets, and an ancient castle on a hill, Prague also has incredible food. If my last post (with all our favorite things to see and do in Prague) has you wanting to pack your bags, let me show you where you’ll want to eat as soon as you get there!! :)
Here’s our ultimate guide to eating in Prague for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and of course, dessert!
You know I had to find French Toast in Prague! Our favorite breakfast in Prague was hands down at Cafe Savoy. The French Toast was amazing!
So was this giant slice of brioche with baked ham, Gruyère cheese, and a poached egg.
Cafe Savoy has a bakery on-site making fresh bread and pastries daily.
Highly recommend breakfast at Cafe Savoy one morning!
Starbucks Prague Castle
Oh my gosh, I am not normally a Starbucks drinker (you guys may remember I only drink water) but when the Starbucks has one of the best views in the city, you have to check it out! You don’t actually have to buy anything to check out the view, but we thought these colorful drinks and cinnamon buns were fun! ;)
Something very interesting we learned while we were in Prague… When you think of Prague or the Czech Republic, I can’t really think of a specific cuisine to go along with it.. Not like Italy, Mexico, or Greece. The reason for that is, after World War II, Prague was under the communist regime for the next 40 years (until 1989). Under the communist era, all restaurants were regulated. All restaurants served the exact same menu, in the exact same portions, for the exact same price. There was no room for creativity or experimentation with food. It would be like if every single restaurant in America was McDonalds.
If you’d like to experience a typical restaurant from that time, Lokal Dlouha serves classic Czech dishes, prepared using only fresh, locally sourced ingredients. I’m not even a potato salad fan, but the potato salad here was to DIE for. Very interesting spot to stop for a quick lunch in Prague!
For a romantic dinner in Prague with fine dining and a beautiful overlook of the city, check out Zlatá Praha at the top of the InterContinental in Prague.
If you want a special night out, this is the place to go.
Loved this fun dessert! You may have seen it on Instagram… The warm caramel melted the chocolate to reveal vanilla ice cream inside!
You have to watch this video with the sound on! Our squeals with delight, lol!!
This was probably one of my favorite meals in Prague. Art & Food serves fresh, seasonal, farm to table cusine. Another amazing thing about Prague is how affordable it is! We had the 5-course tasting menu with wine, for less than $55. Seriously incredible meal. I highly, highly recommend dinner at Art & Food. If you only have one night in Prague, eat here!
Another fun dinner in Prague! Every dish at Field is a work of art. Gorgeous, delicious, adventurous dining. Be sure to make a reservation.
Beautiful gourmet restaurant in Prague. Loved the fun pear dessert!
The Boscolo Hotel in Prague used to be a bank. They converted one of the old vaults into a cigar lounge. Where the gold and other valuables used to be locked away, now holds some of the finest cigars and alcohols. The vault is neat to see if you’re into that sort of thing!
This building in Prague is nicknamed The Dancing House. The architect called the building Fred & Ginger, after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. There’s a restaurant at the top with a beautiful view of the city. I’m a huge Fred Astaire fan, so I wanted to eat there one night. :) The restaurant serves an international menu and is a little on the expensive side for Prague, but if you’re looking for good food, a casual atmosphere, and a gorgeous sunset view, you’ll definitely find it here. :)
Dessert / Snacks
When you’re in Prague, you have to get a Trdelnik! You’ll see Trdelnik stands everywhere in Prague. A Trdelnik is a sweet dough, wrapped around a cast iron cylinder, then rolled in cinnamon sugar. It’s the grilled over an open charcoal flame until the dough bakes and the sugar caramelizes on the outside. The outside is sweet and crisp and the inside is soft like a cinnamon bun! SO good!!
You can even get them filled with NUTELLA and ICE CREAM.
We had to have one every day!
You can even get rolled ice cream in a Trdelnik!
They even Trdelnik dip cones!!!!! Ahh!! Loved finding fun Trdelniks all over Prague! :)
Angelato is the cutest little gelato shop!
We had to stop for a tiny scoop! :) So good!
Foodie Walking Tour
If you even remotely like food, I highly recommend a Foodie Walking Tour with Taste of Prague. We got to sample all the best dishes from the most popular hot spots in Prague. It was also the most informative tour we took the entire time we were in Prague! I learned more about the history of Prague and the Czech Republic on this tour than on a couple other non-food tours we took! If you want an intro to Prague while eating amazing food, definitely do this tour in Prague.
Where to Stay in Prague
Our first three nights in Prague we stayed at the InterContinental Prague. It’s in an amazing location right in the heart of Prague. It’s just a short, beautiful walk to Old Town Square, the Astronomical Clock, and Charles Bridge.
Our room was absolutely gorgeous and so spacious. We had a beautiful view of the river.
There were even some fun treats waiting for us when we checked in!
One thing I LOVED about our room… There were two bathrooms and two showers!
The shower was huge with amazing water pressure and plenty of room for toiletries.
Dying over this counter space!
Loved every single minute at the InterContinental Prague. Would highly recommend when staying in Prague!
Thanks so much for reading! Until next time!! xoxo
