Cafe Nona

Cafe NonaThis has been one of my favorite cafes since it first opened so I have no excuse for not writing about it earlier. Its superb location on Národní makes it a great meeting place, it’s large and the big windows let in lots of light. The best though is its great functionalist design. The café is on the third floor of the Nova Scena building, a bit of an eyesore theater built by Karel Prager in the mid 1980s. In January 2010, the National Theatre took over Nova Scena and that’s when the café was opened.

Tables sit on the long side of the café lined by windows. This is the optimal place to park yourself with your computer. In the middle of the space, conversational areas made up of low couches and chairs are scattered about. There’s a long bar area and bookshelves double as space dividers. The whole space is low and warm and busy. It’s a popular café with students, seniors, the dance and theatre crowd, and anyone who likes a laidback place to hang in the center.

Café Nona also serves Coffee Source coffee and offers a double cappuccino (90 CZK) though to be honest; it could have been a bit bigger. Service is very relaxed, when you are ready to pay, go to the bar. Nona gets a bunch of kicks – for location, décor, workability and vibe. One of my tops cafes in Nové Město.
