Starbucks is one of those things which gets everywhere, some people consider it an annoyance, others seek the refuge of something familiar in the strange new city. Whichever category you fall into, you will want to check out the Starbucks here in Prague. It’s gorgeous, the coffees are exactly as you’d expect and it’s fantastic for readers and writers.
You walk in and find yourself in a spacious room with high, domed ceilings and occasional pillars. The decor is as you expect from a Starbucks, practical, comfortable and tastefully done. You weave your way through the tables and the small sections which have been created to allow for a more comfortable and personal experience so you can order from the high (maybe that’s just where I’m short) counter. I wouldn’t recommend you try the pastries, as amazing and delicious as they look.
You head down the stairs and find yourself below street level with an array of comfortable chairs and large tables ideal for resting a book or three on. The ambiance is fantastic for curling up for a few hours with a good book, or notebook as you take in mix of Czech architecture with Starbucks own touches.
It’s a beautiful example of a Starbucks, the coffees are exactly as you’d expect, it’s friendly and great for losing yourself in a good book for a few hours. The upper level is fabulous for people watching as you look out onto Malostranské náměstí.
