Next time you crave that shot of caffeine, check out these twelve outstanding picks.
Café Louvre: A very unique café located in the city center near the national theater. Bringing together Viennese coffee (and Sachertorte), a mix of Czech & French cuisine and an international atmosphere. Louvre’s guests are almost as diverse as its menu, welcoming movie stars, tourists, students and families to this fancy yet reasonably-priced café.

Choco-Café U červené židle: The café known as the Red Chair is the ultimate haven for lovers of chocolate. There are several locations but Liliová 4 near Národní třída is the largest and most popular café with a garden perfect for warmer weather. Macaroons, pralines and cakes are on the menu but the star of the show is hot chocolate. It is rich and delicious because it is literally just melted chocolate – there are various flavor and even alcoholic versions. www.choco-cafe.cz
