After three years spent drinking coffee in London, the owners of the Coffee Room decided to return home to Prague and open a café based on the coffee experiences they loved there. The Coffee Room is pretty much a large room, but bright with a few tables and a tall bar in the window. The main chunk of space is taken up by the bar – chalkboards hang behind and a shelf holds coffee paraphernalia. Coffee Room sells single origin bagged beans for take home too. They also offer coffee to-go, so if it’s really tight in there and you are blessed with a decent day, take your coffee down a couple blocks to Bezrucovy sady park.
Coffee Room uses single origin beans and the Coffeespot roaster. The cappuccino (52 CZK) was very good and the size a bit bigger than the typical cappuccinos I’m used to drinking in all these new cafes. A late-morning visit saw a couple sitting in the window, someone else working and a couple to-go orders. Their location on Korunní Street in Vinohrady probably doesn’t have the best foot traffic, so this might be a place most frequented by locals. The coffee is good though, so if I lived nearby I’d make it a regular caffeine top-up.
Coffee Room gets kicks for coffee and atmosphere. Workability would be difficult, and due to the small space I’m unsure if I’d pick it as a meeting/catch-up place. But for good coffee to-go near Jiřího z Poděbrad, Coffee Room might be a top choice.
