You’ll feel that you are no longer in Prague.
Once you enter the Café Louvre and climb the never-ending flight of stairs, you feel that you are no longer in Prague. From the decorative wallpaper, to the paintings on the wall, to the layout of the couches, it is as if you have entered an old time saloon in nineteenth century Paris. It is no wonder that since its founding in 1902, it has been the meeting spot for famous writers and intellects around the world. Famous Czechs such as Edurad Vojan, and Franz Kafka along with foreigners such as Otto Pick and Albert Einstein have sat under those arches having intellectual debates, conjuring new theories and works, or simply enjoying a drink and playing billiards (a billiard room still exist today for you to enjoy).
Do not forget, however, that this is a café. And that means one important thing: food! As far as food goes, the Café Louvre exceeds all expectations. From traditional Czech dishes such as beef goulash, pork tenderloin, to roast beef on cream to Parisian treats (roast fillets of rabbit and confit duck leg) to classical restaurant foods such as hamburgers, all items are high quality and guaranteed to make your taste buds dance with glee. There is something on the menu for almost every type of craving.
Where the Café Louvre really stands out is their drink and dessert menus. They offer over a dozen types of coffees, decadent hot chocolates, and fun cocktails. But more importantly, Café Louvre offers some of the most tantalizing and rich desserts that can satisfy the strongest sweet tooth. From cheesecake to crepes to various cakes, Louvre is a dessert paradise. The Café Lourve is not simply another café: it is an escape. It is a break from the Prague surroundings; a chance to sit down with friends, good wine, and discuss life like those who sat in the same seats hundreds of years earlier.
