Suggestions for Breakfast
What can be better for breakfast than freshly made pancakes? This small place, Den Noc, is a good place to try delicious sweet or salty pancakes with a good coffee or lemonade. They are opened Monday to Sunday 08:30 to 15:00. Bear in mind they don’t accept reservations.

Good and quite coffee shop to have breakfast. The food is simple but tasty. As the name suggests, the decoration is related to the character James Bond. Nice place if you just want to relax in a not crowded place.

Suggestions for Dinner
U Dvou Velbloudu
We found this restaurant by accident. We were looking for a restaurant that served Czech food and the ones we tried before were completely full. In one of the many hidden streets in Prague we found this restaurant. And I must tell you, we had the best meal of the all trip in here.
The food was delicious, the meat was tender and the proportions of each dish huge. We loved this place, amazing for people like us who wanted to eat Czech dishes. This restaurant is not pricey at all, and for the amount of food you get, it is an excellent choice.

At this point we were looking for places that served traditional Czech food and this place has amazing reviews. I advise you to book a table, because the first time we tried to have dinner here the restaurant was packed and without reservation, we had to go somewhere else.
Located in the main plaza of Prague it is a very nice and spacious restaurant, with a touch of posh. The food and the wine were good, but we had to wait a long time for our food to be served. Even though they apologised because they were busy, we ended up spending more than 3 hours in here.
Nevertheless, the food was delicious and in the end it was worth the waiting.

We found this place late in the evening, the only one that was still serving food. This fantastic steak house has a vast seafood menu as well. The food is absolutely delicious and the staff so friendly. The decoration of this restaurant is very nice and intimate. I really recommend this restaurant. Even though is a bit pricey, the quality of food and service are just amazing.

Suggestions for Snacks
Chimney-cake is made from rolled dough (similiar to doughnut dough) that is wrapped around a stick and then grilled after being cover with sugar. The sugar caramelises giving a crisp texture to the dough. Then is covered with sugar and cinnamon. You can add the most delicious toppings like fresh cream, Nutella, fruit, ice-cream among many many other sweets. You find a lot of places selling them but try a place that served fresh chimney cakes (served straight from the grilled).
We tried the ones from “Good Food, Coffe & Bakery”, but you have tons of places around the city where you can buy the chimney-cakes.
I describe the Czech sausage as more like a type of chorizo than a sausage. Delicious anyway and that is why I ate two during the all trip and I don’t even eat sausage per norm. In some places they have a different variety of sausages, like chicken or beef, in other places they only have one type. But delicious. Crispy skin and spicy meat, heaven for people like me that loves unhealthy food. As for chimney cakes you have loads of places in the city, you just have to stop when you feel hungry and try one of this yummy Czech sausage.
P.S. My friends tried one place in the main Square, and it wasn’t as good as the ones we bought near Charles Bridge (end of Karlova Street) and at the bottom of the Castle District.
Prague – Night out
This was the best place of the whole trip. We first thought this was just a ice bar as the name suggests, so when we got inside it was given to us some special jackets and gloves and we entered in a room made of ice. Everything you can touch or feel are made of ice – statues, walls, tables, balcony and glasses. The ticket includes a drink here and you can choose one of three flavors: sweet, sour or bitter. The temperature in the room is -7ºC and for that reason we only can be inside for 20 minutes (they have a timer going). It is an unique experience. After 20 minutes we thought the experience had finished but we quickly found out there were 3 more floors to explore, each level with its own club, each with different type of music.
We tried all clubs ending the night on the top floor. We had an amazing time and that is why we stayed here for hours. I really recommend it. Just bear in mind the ticket has to be paid with cash, they don’t accept credit/debit cards.

James Dean Prague
First night in Prague, already late in the night without knowing where to go. We saw this place and decided to give it a go. This bar has two floors, the top one has tables and chairs, giving more of a pub vibe while the bottom floor is a club. Because it was our first night we stayed on the top floor (some of us were feeling a bit tired) and we had some cocktails and danced until early in the morning (the music is the same on both floors). This bar is decorated as “Diner” would be in the 50’s. During the day this place is opened as a restaurant.
Adress: V Kolkovně 922/1, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia
I am just putting this place in here because it was a new experience for us. We went there just to check how a “gentlemen’s club” works. What can I say? It was a experience different from normal and me and my friends ended up the night with inside jokes, but apart from that we actually thought it was not worth it. The entrance for this place is free for men but women have to pay ticket and it is mandatory to have a drink, which are incredible expensive.
I believe many people will enjoy this kind of ambiance and as I said, for us was completely new experience. I don’t have any photos from inside because it is forbidden taking pictures which is understandable.
