10 breakfast places in Prague for a great start of the day
When it comes to breakfast, the citizens of Prague know how to treat themselves. After all, it is the most important meal of the day, isn’t it? Forget about a quick snack on the go to start your day, you will have to sit through this one!
Prague has a steadily growing coffee culture and most locals will consider themselves coffee experts. That is why there is some hip café at every corner, no matter which part of town you happen to be in. Most of them open around 8 am and serve breakfast at least until 11. While you can get a bite of something practically everywhere, there are places where the morning meal makes a real difference! Let us give you some tips on where to breakfast with a style in this city of coffee shops.
TIP: Morning is the best time of the day to explore the city, especially in the summer. If you want to escape the crowds and hot weather, get up a bit earlier and stroll through the city center before breakfast or join our brand new Crowd-free morning tour, which takes you through the most scenic spots of Prague and ends with breakfast in on of our favourite restaurants.
Pernerova 49, Mo – Fr: 8 am – 11.30 pm, Sa – Su: 9 am – 11.30 pm
There are many cool restaurants in the Karlín neighbourhood, but not all of them can boast their own bakery. And what a bakery! If you want a good sample of the delicious Czech bread, this is the place to go. Try it with their popular egg spread or a plum marmalade and you won’t regret it. Eska adds a modern twist to traditional Czech cuisine to create an unforgettable breakfast experience.
Vítězná 5, Mo – Fr 8 am – 10.30 pm, Sa – Su 9 am – 10.30 pm
Before going for breakfast in this noble establishment, I highly recommend booking a table, especially if you are here for the weekend. Café Savoy is extremely popular, which is no coincidence! Their continental breakfast looks really tempting, but for a proper Czech experience, you should try Breakfast Savoy. Fortunately, they serve them all day, so there’s no excuse why you shouldn’t stop by, even if you are not an early bird.
Na Poříčí15, Mo – Su: 7 am – 11 pm
Another breakfast classic is Café Imperial. Located within the city center, Imperial is the best choice for those who like to start their day early. You will be impressed not only by their culinary skills but also by the unique interior design. A little spoiler: it is said they have the best eggs Benedict in town. Make sure you appear on time, there’s no breakfast after 10:30 am!
Vodičkova 710/31, Mo – Fr: 7.30 am – 7 pm, Sa – Su: 9 am – 7 pm
This centrally-located sweet-shop will take you for a trip back in the past. Designed in the style of the First Czechoslovak Republic, Myšák offers a wide selection of traditional Czech pastries, cakes, and desserts, as well as some savory breakfast options. If you don’t make it to Myšák for the morning meal, stop by during the day for coffee and something sweet.
Křižíkova 105, Mo – Sa: 9 am – 10 pm, Su: 10 am – 6 pm
Just around the corner from Eska is another great Karlín venue, a modern café called My cup of coffee. As the name reveals, you will especially appreciate their coffee, which is of the highest quality and fair-trade. But the breakfast menu is no less enjoyable! Whether you have a sweet tooth or you need to start your day with a proper load of eggs, you will find something to satisfy your craving.
Bubenečská 12, Mo – Sa: 9 am – 10 pm, Su: 10 am – 6 pm
If you find yourself in the district of Bubeneč, this might be the place you are looking for, especially since it is actually called “Place.” As a younger brother of Můj šálek kávy, Místo will never disappoint. Pancakes with fresh forest fruit are my personal favourite, but I would totally understand if you went for the full English breakfast instead.
Korunní 1208/74, Mo – Fr: 8 am – 6.30 pm, Sa: 9 am – 6 pm, Su: 9.30 am – 5 pm
In the last couple of years, Coffee Room rightly secured its place among the most popular breakfast options in Prague. One of the reasons for this success is their renown avocado toast. Another great hit on their menu is a freshly baked banana bread with homemade peanut butter and fresh fruits. Better come get your toast early, this cute little café tends to be packed with people around the breakfast time!
Kodaňská 37, Mo – Fr: 7.30 am – 6 pm, Sa – Su: 9 am – 4 pm
Looking for something off the beaten path? Breakfasts from Café Jen are well-known in the local hipster culture. Located in the neighbourhood of Vršovice, this coffee shop is definitely worth the trip outside of the city center. Modern-style breakfast during the week or a delicious brunch on the weekend, either is a great choice!
Stroupežnického 10, Mo: noon – 10 pm, Tu – Fr: 8 am – 10 pm, Sa – Su: 9 am – 8 pm
From Tuesday to Friday, Kavárna co hledá jméno will welcome you with a hearty breakfast in the form of a delicious egg Benedict or a müsli bowl with mint syrup. Their selection might not be the widest, but both options will make you fall in love with this hip coffee place. And the same goes for its stylish interior. Definitely the best breakfast option in the Anděl area!
Letohradská 44, Mo – Fr: 8 am – midnight, Sa: 10 am – midnight, Su: 10 am – 10 pm
Across the street from the National Technical Museum lies a true gem in the form of Café Letka. A quiet coffee shop during the day and an animated bar during the night, Letka is a pleasant place to hang out at any time. Within the original rustic walls, they serve a high-quality coffee and a modern-style breakfast to go with it. If you are in town over the weekend, treat yourself to a delicious brunch.
