Even though the authentic Prague cafe society does no longer exists the way it used to, with only a hand full of establishments remaining and reminding us of the social epicenters they once represented.
Some argue a new style of cafe society, represented by frappes, iced coffee, and trendy bistros has become the social and cultural focus of the 21st century.
Recently it almost seems like every week a new bistro or cafe opens, some good, some obvious tourist traps we all have our favorites, and so do we here at Oko!, so much so that it can sometimes feel like we never leave our neighborhoods yet it is when we venture outside of our comfort zones that we tend to stumble upon real gems.
In that spirit, we would like to present you with 5 of our favorite coffee shops in Prague that are defenitly worth the extra 5 minutes of public transport.
