Prague Photo Diary | Day 3


Onto our third day in Prague! Don't forget to check out Day 1 and Day 2! Today we started off with breakfast at Cafe Atmosferas, a cute little cafe not far from Wenceslas Square where we planned to shop afterwards. Me and Steven both had Mochaccino's to drink which were amazing! I went for the Sweet breakfast and chose the French Toast option which came with yoghurt and fresh fruit, it was so yummy! Steven went for the savoury pancake and added goats cheese and bacon, which he also enjoyed. We also couldn't resist a slice of Strawberry and Cream Cake we spied in the display cabinet, we were definitely set up for the day! I'd definitely recommend breakfast here, the service was really friendly, the decor was lovely and the food was delicious. 


After our breakfast and a mooch around the shops and Wenceslas Square (I visited the mothership that is Spehora, little haul coming soon! In fact a whole Prague haul coming sooner!), we went on a little statue trail! Firstly stopping at the Franz Kafka Head, it's one not to be missed, seriously Google a video of it moving, it's amazing! We also stopped at the Dancing House designed by Frank Gehry and a David Cerny statue of Sigmund Freud hanging in the air! From there we trotted over the Charles Bridge into the Lesser Quarter. 


In the lesser quarter we made our way to the John Lennon wall, unfortunately the original mural of John Lennon isn't visible anymore, although all the interesting graffiti added in his name over the years is still pretty interesting to see and made for some great photos! 


After walking back over the bridge we had to stop at a place I'd found while researching called Good Food Coffee & Bakery, where they do the traditional Czech Chimney Cakes but filled with loads of different yummy stuff! They're like a round pastry cone covered with sugar, Steven went for the ice cream filled one and I went for the strudel one, filled with apple filling, nuts and topped with cream, they were so good! I'd definitely recommend trying one! They normally have a long queue but it goes down really quick! 


After chilling at the apartment for a bit we stopped for a drink at the Orange Bar around the corner, which was a really cute, friendly little place, we got ready for dinner at a restaurant called Rainer Maria Rike. We wanted to try another traditional restaurant and here had great reviews and looked nice. We were sat in our own little booth and the decor was traditional but not tacky. For starters I went for the Caprese Salad and Steven had the Smoked Fish with toast, both were really nice. For mains I had the Fillet of Zander Fish, which I'd never heard of! But it quite like Haddock, with seasoned potatoes and veg, super yummy! Steven had the Goulash, you can't go to Prague and not try it! He was definitely impressed! Finally we squeezed in a slice of Honey Cake with Caramel Drizzle and nuts, so so good! I could eat this all day! Again we had great service here and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for traditional Czech food!


We wanted to finish our night with cocktails and were desperate to try Hemingway's, we felt a little disheartened when there was 3 groups of people without reservations already waiting, we didn't have one either! But luckily the man was able to squeeze us in at the bar upstairs. The vibe here was really nice and it was no smoking too which was a bonus. The cocktails here were super quirky as you can probably tell! We started off with the Hulky Smash (wish I could keep that mug!) and the Blueberry & Blackcurrant Caipiroska. Then we tried the B-Celebration No.2 (the handle of the jug was the straw!) and the Chocolate Factory (loved the little chocolate bar serving plate and little straw!). Finally we tried the Jamaican Rum Punch and the Lights, Camera Action, all so yummy! It's one not to be missed! Stay tuned for our final day in Prague!
