Calling all Chocolate lovers! If your visiting Prague you need to check out the Choco Cafe! As soon as you enter you’ll be greeted by the heavenly scent of warm chocolate wafting through the air. Your mouth will start watering as you look around you and see all the chocolate treats those around you are eating! This delicious stop is budget friendly as well.
There are 2 locations, we ate at the U Cervenè zidle one which is about a 5 min walk from Charles Bridge. Both are listed below.
As we entered we noticed that on a Friday evening the place was quite busy. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our family of 4 to get a table. While we stood waiting we had to stand right next to the chocolate fountain, which made us anxious to get seats to try some of it! Reservations are possible and if you don’t want to wait and know when you’ll be in the area it might be a good idea to take advantage of that.
The menu is in both Czech and English, however ‘hot chocolate’ is not what American’s call hot chocolate. It’s a hot pudding that is bitter and rich. I got it with ice cream and it was divine but still super rich. I also ordered a chocolate cappuccino and both of those together was almost too much chocolate & richness! The dessert above by itself without any ice cream or sweetener was a bit bitter. Also note the whip cream like most places in Europe is unsweetened as well and need to be ate with the sweet stuff below it.
The prices are very reasonable and we got 4 desserts and 2 drinks for 351 CZK/$14! If we had more time I would have gone back another time and tried something different to experience another yummy dessert. The staff spoke English as well and were happy to answer our questions as well.
If tasty desserts are a must do on your vacations then I highly recommend you visit one of the Choco Cafe’s, you won’t walk away disappointed.
Know Before You Go
What: Choco Cafe – Prague, Czech Republic
- How To Get There: There are 2 locations U Cervenè zidle – Lilovà 4/250, Praha 1 & U Klimenta Klimentskà – 34, Praha 1.
Parking: We parked at our B&B for the several days there and walked everywhere, this city is accessible by walking and everyone is fairly close!
Cost: As much as you’d like to spend on the treats.
Traveling with little kids: The area inside the one we visited was small and it was tight quarters, so it’s not real stroller friendly unless you can find a spot to park it either inside or out while your eating.
How long: Plan on at least 30-45 mins to enjoy the experience, more if you have to wait for a table. Reservations are possible as well.
