Cukrář Skála: Prague's first confectionery factory

A new concept offers of a modern take based on traditional recipes

Confectionery factory Cukrář Skála opened in December 2017 on V Celnici Street. The new premises, led by confectioner Lukáš Skála, offers both traditional and experimental tastes and has a takeaway, with reasonable prices for quality desserts.

Patrons shouldn’t expect a café with small tables decorated with grandmother's lace. The confectionery's concept is inspired by traditional factories. Architect Václav Červenka used stainless steel and glass to let visitors see confectioners in action across all phases of production. “We have been watching the confectionery segment for some time and it appeared to us that there just isn't a proper confectionery that would simply focus on the art of confectionery in a modern sense,” one of the owners, David Petřík from Together Group, said. Together Group is the brainchild of David Petřík and his team as well as Viktor Kaplan,

“In the Czech Republic, as opposed to chefs, there are only a handful of excellent confectioners. This is why the arrival of Lukáš Skála was a great opportunity for us. We did not want to create just another café with a display case for a handful of cakes. Instead, we wanted to build a place that masters the art of working with sugar, whipped cream, butter, fresh fruit, and amazing chocolate, and which essentially offers honest craft at its very core,” Petřík added.

Lukáš Skála prepares all the confectionery starting with the most basic ingredients. Despite the modern-looking results, the roots lie in traditional recipes that Skála inherited primarily from his father who also trained him.

The younger Skála boasts many successes from international confectionery competitions including winning gold at the Culinary Olympics in Erfurt, Germany. He also worked in the kitchen of Prague's Intercontinental Hotel and the Bruxx brasserie.

At Cukrář Skála, he offers traditional and ice cream cakes, pralines, breakfast pastry, sweet sandwiches for the afternoon, seasonal products and desserts with unusual tastes and shapes.

In spring this year, Together Group, which operates not just the Cukrář Skála factory but also Bruxx, Vinohradský Parlament and newly opened Sia Asian restaurant, will open a new establishment on Dlouhá Street, specialized in Czech pastries called kremrole. These were first tested and available at Prague's Vinohradský Parlament during the first two weeks of March.
