Being a student in Prague is a lot of fun, you may all agree. The housing is cheap; beer is cheaper than water; Czech cuisine is delicious; it’s so easy to get around the city, what’s there not to like, isn’t it? Did you know that Prague also has the best cafes in this part of the world? Cafes here not only stock high quality coffee, but also serve as a space for creative conversations and provide an inspiring environment for you to work from. So here’s a list of the best cafes that you could study or finish that assignment from:
MUJ SALEK KAVY
Translated to mean ‘My Cup Of Coffee’, this is somewhat a Prague legend. The cafe, located in the cool district of Karlin, is one of the first speciality coffee places in Prague. They offer a fairly quiet and inspiring ambience, with offers of tasty pastries and soups apart from coffee. They also offer outdoor seatings during the summer. Plan your trip in advance as on weekends you may find it difficult to get a seat. For more info, click here.
FRIENDS COFFEE HOUSE
Although situated in one of the more expensive parts of the city, this coffee house will not cause a huge dent in your wallet. They offer three different kinds of seating atmospheres that will make you feel at home, no matter what your style of study may be. The cafe offers a peaceful atmosphere at most times and what’s more you won’t have nosey servers come up to you too many times to remind you to order more. For more info, click here.
Just off the Muzeum metro station, Cafedu is seriously a student’s paradise. Founded by a PhD student following the concept of England’s study hall cafes, Cafedu offers a different experience to prague students. Apart from the cafe, there are 24 hour study rooms on offer, where you can even stay overnight to study if you are a member. For more info, click here.
For a tiny, more living room-like atmosphere and some local fervour, visit Cafe Jen. The hole-in-the-wall cafe has a great selection of coffee from around the world and also includes some homemade cakes and soups. It is a great place for studying with a small group and the friendly servers would not be too much of a bother either. Find more info here.
Located in the historical centre of Prague, this cafe is minimalistic, vintage and contemporary all at once. The walls of the cafe is filled with original illustration by young artists and they also host interesting exhibitions of designers and makers regularly. Offering a good collection of sandwiches and salads, Original Coffee is a great place to take some quiet time off to catch up on your schoolwork. Find more info here.
