There are few cafés in Prague which are as seeped in tradition as this establishment. Founded in 1902 in a sulubrious first flloor, Art Noveau interior which has served as a cultural and intelectual hub. The staff fondly recall how Frank Kafka would agonise over his chocolate sacher cake. While Albert Einstein, a regular between 1911-12, would show off with his precise calculation of the relative benefits of tea over coffee. Finally the Čapek brothers founded the ‘sursum’ artistic movement here. To this day, it continues to provide the backdrop for countless everyday meetings over a cup of coffee, glass of wine or hearty meal. All this lends a grand sense of occasion and history to the bright, palatial interior. Row upon row of classic bentwood chairs, long, upholstered leather seatting, ornate plasterwork, mirrored walls and suspended chandeliers make an impressive Art Noveau setting. The menu features international cuisine with a selection of classic Czech dishes. And for something more active head to the large room with traditional pool tables.
