Můj šálek kávy (My Coffee Cup) is the flagship cafe of my favorite Czech coffee brand Doubleshot. I recently mentioned them when I wrote about Misto, their second café. As I wrote with Misto, I was unsure if they’d ever appear here, but the coffee gods aligned and accidently got me in, when I wasn’t even planning on having a coffee! But no one says no to that opportunity.
The café is a victim of its own success. The owners and regular patrons would probably disagree. The place is always packed. Obviously that means it’s popular, but I’m not the type to make a reservation for a coffee. However if you really want to go, especially for their Sunday brunch or during lunch time, make a reservation. The café does it all –coffee, cakes, breakfast, lunch, beer, wine, etc.
The décor is awesome, industrial with a softer, slightly hipper edge. There are two okay-sized rooms with lots of tables crammed in. Service is prompt and friendly, and of course the cappuccino (60 CZK) is made from Doubleshot so it’s going to be fabulous.
I can’t really give Můj šálek kávy a bad review because they’ve got wonderful coffee and a good looking café. I guess the vibe here just doesn’t do it for me. But go if you are in Karlín, they are an institution.
