Yes kafe / wine is a calm location with a view of the Vltava River close to Přístav that hasn’t been overrun yet. It opens at 8:30 a.m. on weekdays, so don’t worry about reservations. There is plenty of seating with outdoor tables for use in warm weather. It’s a quiet place for a meeting, and they even have options if you want to celebrate a deal in the early hours of the day. As the name suggests, Yes isn’t just about the coffee, but also high-quality wines. It also offers excellent food with both sweet and savoury dishes. We recommend traditional eggs benedict or the light pancakes.
This bistro offers a mix of home cooking and Mediterranean specialities that offers breakfast dishes throughout the day, as well as homemade lemonade and old-school roasted coffee according to Italian traditions. Bistro Proti proudu is a fixture in Karlín where you can find an exceptional breakfast, a great lunch, or have a glass of fine wine in the evening. This popular spot was the brainchild of David Konečný and Karolina Konečná, well-known Czech foodies. She is originally a journalist and the author of a popular cookbook of recipes from Sardinia, as well as the founder of Avocado Gang, another popular Karlín bistro. When Proti proudu was opened in March 2015, you could count the number of places offering excellent coffee and modern cuisine in Karlín on one hand. David and Karolina followed their intuition that told them this part of Prague had excellent potential and would soon be an amazing place, which is now true.
It's busy here for breakfast (and the rest of the day too), so we certainly recommend making a reservation. The morning menu is varied with both sweet and savoury options. Besides classics like scrambled eggs, you can also try their secret spread whose recipe they carefully guard. There is also the option of a hearty mug of cocoa with a pastry and homemade butter and marmalade. It’s a great place for lively conversations and Proti proudu also offers a pleasant environment that’s simple but elegant along with friendly staff.
The spacious and quirky Fuel Bistro catches the eye. It’s a bit off the beaten track, so it offers a more relaxing atmosphere and the knowledge that it will be easier to find a table in the afternoon. It’s located in the AFI Butterfly building in Pernerova street and opens every day at 9 a.m. Fuel is for people who live healthy and balanced diets. Try the protein waffles with bananas, shakshuka with eggs and baked vegetables, or a sandwich with Prague ham, cottage cheese, and herbs. The meals and vitamin-packed smoothies are made from fresh local ingredients and some homemade products are available for take-away. They even roast their own coffee.
