Best of Breakfasts in Prague /Part 1/

I am a breakfast freak and my day must always start with a good breakfast. The workweek is clear – bread and something healthy. But when the weekend rolls in, my obsession with eggs comes to life! I’ve been wanting to write an article about all the mouthwatering breakfasts you can find in Prague and now the time has finally come!

There will be more parts to it. I can’t just cover them all in one post (believe me, there are many!).

A little warning for you – the best breakfast for me is just American/English. Eggs simply must be there. Sorry, healthy French breakfasts, you don’t qualify for this list. Now that that’s clear, let’s have a look at where you can enjoy the best breakfasts (with eggs) in Prague!

Mistral CaféCafe Mistral Prague

This is one of my favourite places for breakfast! Located just by the metro station Staromestska (green line A), it’s very close to the Old Town, yet not touristy. It’s popular among families too, as they have a nice playing area for children featuring a little house that they can climb into. Both the American and English breakfasts are off the hook and both come in perfect, medium-sized portions! Although real English breakfast fans might complain about the Czech-style sausages that are more like hotdogs as opposed to real sausages (i.e. not much meat).

  • Breakfast served: till noon
  • Does American feature pancakes: Yes!
  • Price English/American: CZK 168/178
  • Opening hours: Daily 10am–11pm
  • Address: Valentinská 11, 110 00 Praha 1

Sweet & Pepper Dayscafe Prague

This is a relatively new café that sprung up only last year or so. It’s quite small and combines the appearance and feel of your grandma’s living room, with a modern menu written on big blackboards. It’s pet-friendly and usually full. Their American breakfast is amazing, and the English breakfast is pretty awesome too. Just beware the scrambled eggs – they appear to be a bit watered down. But fried eggs are awesome! I’ve heard people complain about the coffee they make there with an ancient-looking coffee maker. I didn’t find it too bad, plus the machine’s Italian! :)

  • Breakfast served: all day
  • Does American feature pancakes: Yes!
  • Price English/American: CZK 129/129
  • Opening hours: Mon 12am–10pm, Tue-Fri 9am-10pm, Sat 10am-7pm, Sun 10am-4pm
  • Address: Anglická 19, 120 00 Praha 2
  • Web: None, just Facebook: 

Café ImperialCafe Imperial Prague

This restaurant will amaze you at the first sight, especially if you like Art Nouveau! The ceilings are incredible and so is the whole design of the interior. The waiters are all very elegantly dressed and water taps on the toilet even look like swans, covered with ‘gold’. And no, it’s not too much – it really makes up for a unique personality.

Café Imperial is incredible and the breakfast is delicious. I assume all meals must be delicious there, judging from some of the blissful facial expression I’ve seen from diners there. Café Imperial is owned by one of the Czech Republic’s most famous TV chefs and he seems to be doing his work very well.

I love their Eggs Benedict, they’re truly mouthwatering (drooling on my keyboard now). You can also visit their breakfast buffet from 7:00 till 10:30 am for CZK 290. And did I mention there’s even a dresscode?! It’s smart casual but I once wore a pair of torn jeans accidentally (coz it was a surprise breakfast!) and I didn’t have any problems.

  • Breakfast served: all day
  • Does American feature pancakes: No
  • Price English/American: CZK 217/217
  • Opening hours: Daily 7am-11pm
  • Address: Na Poříčí 15, 110 00 Praha 1
  • Web: 

MonolokMonolok cafe Prague

You might assume that I’m a paid promoter of Monolok, as it was also included in another one of my articles 5 New Prague Cafés. It’s just that I like this café a lot. My favorite breakfast items are the Omelet with cheddar cheese and Soft-boiled eggs with chives and Himalayan salt. The English breakfast is good, maybe sometimes just a little small – it depends who’s in the kitchen. No American breakfast option.

  • Breakfast served: all day
  • Price English: CZK 119
  • Opening hours: Mon-Fri 8am-10pm, Sat-Sun 10am-7pm
  • Address: Moravská 1540/18, 120 00 Praha 2
  • Web: (Czech only) 

James DeanJames Dean Cafe Prague

If you crave for a real American breakfast, this place is as American as it gets. Located by the end of the popular Dlouhá Boulevard, you can easily stroll the Old Town after you have been well fed. The interior is designed in a 50’s American Diner style. They have classic old jukeboxes and the waitresses even wear 50’s waitress uniforms (with very short skirts btw.) At James Dean you can build your own breakfast from the individual egg & ingredients items. Oh, and don’t leave without checking out the bathrooms, they look really cool :)

  • Breakfast served: till noon
  • Does American feature pancakes: No
  • Price American: CZK 160
  • Opening hours: Mon-Fri 8am-4am, Sat-Sun 9am-4am
  • Address: V Kolkovně 922/1, 110 00 Praha 1
  • Web:


On a weekend when we are not making breakfast at home, you can definitely find me at one of these places. But if there are all ingredients ‘in da house’, there’s nothing better than a delicious homemade breakfast, which usually consists of bacon, French toast or waffles with maple syrup and blueberries.. eggs either fried or sometimes we get creative and make goats cheese & mint omelets. I’ll let you know if we ever open a café and serve breakfasts from our home! :)

Cafe Imperial gets my vote. I would definitely want to hit that spot as well as James Dean, just because. ;) These are all great suggestions and did I mention it is my #1 bucket list destination? Perfect as I hope to make it there next year.
