On our way to the Kafka museum we passed a tearoom with a sign stating it was the first ‘non-smoking’ tearoom in Prague. This tearoom we obviously had to visit. We decided to do so after visiting the museum. By the way: when you are walking through Prague, you pass through all kinds of nice streets and find lots of little treasures. Galleries, small shops, cafés and restaurants. During our weekend in Prague we did everything on foot even though there is a very adequate network of trams, metro and buses. We never took any. This time there was no need for us to do so, however when we will go back to visit the city in another season, we intend to take a tram to the end station and see what’s cooking on the outskirts. Back to the first non-smoking tearoom.
It’s got a nice painting of a sheep above the door and for art overs an art gallery next door.
Inside it was like this:
Note the crockery. It had been made by an artist and was for sale. As it happens I needed a little burner like that so that is now neatly sitting underneath my teapot at home:
Looks nice doesn’t it? Name of the café which theoretically is not a tearoom is Café Kafíčko, addres Míšeňská 10, Praha 1-Malá Strana, close to metro Malostranská or Malostranské náměstí.
The cakes were home made, I had a honey cake which was quite nice. My friend had a carrot walnut cake which he ate with considerable speed so it must have been a treat as well. Real friendly staff although communication was a little difficult due to our non-existent Czech skills and their modest English skills. I must say I actually rather like that when travelling. It makes you resort to a lot of gesturing and even doing little drawings to make yourself understood.
As related elsewhere in this blog on Prague, we found this fantastic veggie restaurant named Maitrea.(Týnská ulička 6, Praha 1 (behind Tyn’s Church, street off Old Town Square) tel. +420-221-711631 ww.restaurace-maitrea.cz
