Bistro 8

Bistro 8 1 (1)Better known for its tasty homemade lunch specials, warming soup and nice cakes, Bistro 8 is located between Strossmayerovo náměstí and Letná Park. The streets here seem to offer more pubs than cafes, so it’s a good place to know about. The feeling is very neighborly – you feel like your fellow diners live nearby and come here regularly. They also offer Doubleshot coffee. Caffeine needs met! Or so we thought.Bistro 8

Tasty but oh so tiny! It would have been wonderful to have had just a bit of a larger cappuccino (48 CZK); this one seemed gone in two sips. Yummy, of course, but disappointingly small. We sat outside; the view wasn’t great but the small table and bench was perfect for a mid-morning chat. Inside are two rooms; the front has the bar along with two high tables and stools in the windows, while the back is sparsely done with basic table and chairs, but in a simple but not boring way.

Bistro 8 2We can recommend Bistro 8 more for lunch, than for coffee. We’ll give it 2 kicks; one for vibe and one for location.
