Six Places for Delicious Lunch in Prague

It’s important to stay fuelled while travelling, all the exploring and experiences of Prague can sometimes come with a rumbling tummy, and nobody wants to be hungry on holiday!

Often when planning a trip, we regularly neglect to investigate where’s good for lunch, tending instead to find somewhere that looks good as we wander. That’s fine, but why settle for just eating when you could be missing out on some of the best places to have lunch in Prague?

From cheap eats in Prague, to décor as fancy as the food, we’ve got you covered with our six recommendations for having a delicious lunch in Prague.

 

Café Savoy


Cafe Savoy is a self-professed “establishment with a noble atmosphere”, and there’s no denying the elegance and charm of the place. Established in 1893, this restaurant & patisserie exudes a cool opulence in every element, from the splendid chandeliers and amazing ceiling to the sumptuous food. The fare is a delicious mix of Czech dishes and French cuisine and, despite the luxuriousness, is very well-priced and budget-friendly, with a generous lunch main costing around €12 on average.

The Farm Letna


The one word that sums up The Farm Letna Urban kitchen & coffeehouse is probably “cosy”. There’s a real homely vibe here, a kind of familiarity that could make you feel like you’ve been here a dozen times before. I’m not quite sure why that is, but it may have something to do with the tasty home-cooked dishes, the scent of freshly-baked scones, buns & cakes, the chic interior and hip style elements, the warm and welcoming, friendly staff and the sense that everyone else here is a regular customer.
