Prague's Best Coffee Shops

You must have heard of this city.

The city is well-known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world and best known of its local delicious beer. 

But I suspect not many people know its specialty coffee scene is going viral across the city.

Just came back from the capital of Czech Republic, Prague, I summarised a list of 6 best coffee shops that worth your visit.

Prague's Best Coffee Shops (Part 1)

  • Kavárna Čekárna


    Located nearby the Fortified medieval castle & exhibition, Vyšehrad, Kavárna Čekárna is where you want to go on your relaxing Sundays. You can spot a lot of detailed designs within the shop and I am sure you cannot resist stopping by the beautiful garden behind the shop. The coffee menu is very neat and simple with a bit of pastry cookies and cakes on the side.

  • What I ordered.
    I ordered a cup of batch brew coffee and a shot of espresso.

    The bean for batch brew coffee is seasonal and picked by the barista on a regular basis. The one I had was a Brazilan bean.

    The espresso was a dope! It’s very clean, balanced and sweet.

  • What you'd come back for?

    I have to emphasis the garden at the back of the cafe is pretty and quiet. This is no doubt you will want to spend anther peaceful afternoon with your friends here again!

  • La Boheme Cafe


    La Boheme Cafe is a stunner!

    The moment you push the door and enter the spacious cafe, you will be surprised by how well designed is the interior. Every corner of this coffee shop worths tons of your films. 

    It is a coffee roastery supplying beans to a lot of local hotels, restaurant and other cafes. The space is a former design furniture showroom, no wonder how good-looking it is.

    You can see the coffee accessories corner and all their direct-trade coffee together with the coffee bar at the ground floor. The roasting machine is located upstairs, roasting fresh coffee at the spot everyday.


  • What I Ordered.
    As I had already too much coffee the day I visited them, what ashame  I couldn’t take more caffeine. I ordered one of their specialties - Nitro Spiced Rooibos. (Besides coffee, I am also a fan of rooibos tea.) This is a mix of rooibos, chai and lemonade nitrogen infused beverage. Something simple but tastes really yum.

    It was a good pick as a summer non-coffee drink. I am though looking forward to try their coffee next time I visit.

    I also love their menu design. There are lots of choices but it is nicely put and very neat. 
  • What you’d come back for?
    The atmosphere, the interior design and the good coffee! I love everything of this shop, except that I am hoping for more chance to communicate with barista. Anyway, this is a dream place to visit for coffee lovers and designers.

  • One Sip Coffee 


    If you are a barista, I can be sure you will become a fan of One Sip Coffee once you see their coffee bar. 

    It is no doubt a small coffee shop but this doesn’t make you less impressed. The tidiness of the whole space is what I appreciate the most.  Zdenek's, co-owner of One Sip Coffee, barista competitions experience contributes to the clean and efficient bar set up of the shop obviously.

The next thing made me especially fell in love was the espresso machine. It’s a 2 groups Mirage Lever espresso machine.

How can I explain the romance of a lever espresso machine among barista? Plus, this model had been already pull off from the production line.

They believe this machine produces better, sweeter coffee, which, was true!  I had an espresso and a batch brew. His espresso was excellent. The sweetest espresso in my Prague trip.

For serious coffee drinker, One Sip Coffee is where you must visit.

What'd you come back for? 100% their coffee!
