I like this place for a kind of sentimental reason. My grandpa used to run a cinema here, and my mom was selling tickets in the ticket booth… but today there is a very hip “bistro” run by a bunch of very enthusiastic people who will provide you with a narrow but great selection of food and drinks.
You can stop here for breakfast, lunch or dinner or for a coffee or a drink anytime. But personally, I recommend their take on “palačinky” (crepes) with a cappuccino.
Anyway, why would you come here just for a coffee without any other reason to visit this place? I’ll tell you. Ořechovka was (and still is) one of the most prestigious addresses in Prague.
It is where many foreign embassies are located. It was the first villa quarter built during the “first republic” (1919-1939) and the style was inspired by English and Dutch architecture. It is believed that by wandering around this area you will find streets that look more English than streets in England itself.
Come by tram number 1 or 2 to station Sibeliova and start exploring.
