Traditional, lavish cream-and-coffee establishment in the heart of the Old Town (immediately opposite Old Town Hall off Old Town Square). Go upstairs to main cafe, inspect calorie-stuffed cream / chocolate / cake concoctions in chiller unit, order by number from the table (preferably with Viennese coffee). Don't eat the small bags of nuts on the table - they'll charge you!
Off Old Town Square, opposite Old Town Hall: can't miss it.
One of the world's finest Art Nouveau buildings: impressive outside, stunning within, right down to the light fittings and door handles. Includes bar, restaurant and cafe, as well as concert hall and other facilities (guided tours available). The ground floor cafe is an inexpensive place for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea in exquisite, stylish surroundings.
Metro : Namesti Republiky (straight across the square)
Quirky restaurant with a fixation for things made with oranges and walnuts - particularly the liqueurs de maison. Really good meal here in October 2005. Very welcoming and a real authentic Parisian eatery in the old-fashioned sense, with a varied and interesting menu. Opens about 7.30pm (except Sundays) and Tuesday-Friday lunchtimes. Try it.

Good quality, friendly Italian restaurant (but no jokes about horses' heads!). Four of us ate here in Sept 2005 - 5-course meal, 2 bottles of wine - 1,850Kr (about £45). Ground floor if you want to pose with the beautiful young things of Prague (and the smokers), down in the basement for a quieter, smoke-free meal. Really very good quality, as well as good value. Try it.
Just around the corner, in a new shopping mall, you can find both Carrefour and M&S!
Metro or tram: Andel.
Exit station following "tram" signs, restaurant is immediately opposite the metro entrance at Na Belidle 42 (telephone 251511244).
