Recent few years hipster Prague became more and more attractive for people who follow this mode of life. New cafes, shops, art spaces, galleries appear on the map of Prague attracting hipsters from all over the world not just to visit the city of 100 spires, but even to live there for some time.
Prague has always been a trendy city. Beginning from the middle ages tradesmen from all over the world visited the city to sell, buy and learn. This mixture of cultures, freedom and creative people made the stew boil. And now we pick up the results and see that hipsters become a strong engine that make Prague move forward.
If you visit Prague and drop into several places for a coffee or cocktails, you will never believe me, that some 5 years ago it was close to impossible to have an espresso in Prague. Instead of good strong coffee, they served americano, thinking that you will be satisfied. Instead of cappuccino you could have got super hot milk with coffee and no foam. And a flat white was an unknown word play. Today good coffee shops are on almost every corner of down town and not only.
Among the most trendy hipster Prague cafes are the following:
- Muj Salek kavy – Křižíkova 386/105, 186 00 Praha 8-Karlín;
- The Farm Letna – Korunovační 17, 170 00 Praha 7;
- Misto – Bubenečská 12, 160 00 Praha 6;
- Kavarna co hleda jmeno – Stroupežnického 493/10, 150 00 Praha-Smíchov.
In these places you will find perfect service, amazing coffee of various kinds, cookies and cakes. The people who work there speak fluent English, they are very open and ready to help you with you order or any other questions. Sometimes you even don’t believe that they are so much sincere, but they actually are.
