Petřín is the romantic hill above Prague where lovers go to spend lush evenings, or mothers stroll with their new babies. Also, there is a big lookout tower right at the top (resembling the much bigger Eiffel Tower), a famous labyrinth, and, since recently, a nice looking café.
The rebuilt charm
Enough of history, let’s go inside. This former substation (a thing that deals with electricity and such) has been rebuilt in a very stylish way and became a café with an industrial charm that nods to its surrounding in several ways (its staircases are a design answer to the said tower, for instance).
Apart from the inevitable coffee they proudly serve light, fresh dishes from local ingredients. You can have a sandwich (on homemade bread!), a wrap or a dessert, all top quality and with a marvellous view of Prague. The approach of the idea of the café is very contemporary, students are invited to use this place to study and generally everyone is welcome in this pretty place. We are fans.
