The Best Bakeries in Prague

The Best Bakeries in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic (B)

The age of neverending Covid lockdowns have really impressed on us the need for delicious and easily portable food. And what’s more delicious than baked goods? When we can’t sit down to brunch, we can always have a coffee and pastry on the go. To help you in your search for a fresh baguette or a great donut, I present to you the best bakeries in Prague.

Myšák is one of the more high-end bakeries in town, where traditional Czech sweets meet modern gourmet. The historic spot which has been open since 1911 features a picturesque interior and adorable pastries to match. If you have to try just one Czech pastry anywhere in Prague, make it the caramel cream-filled vetrnik from Myšák. It’s a good place to sit and eat as they offer a simple breakfast menu, but if they’re operating as take-out only, then you can take home a classy box of goodies as a treat or a gift.

Le Caveau is the place to go when you’re looking for a good crusty French bread in Prague, which is surprisingly hard to find. Their bakeries at Krymska and JZP sell a variety of breads, croissants, tarts, and other goodies. So if you want to avoid the cookie-cutter French bullshit they sell at Paul, you can get a warm pain au chocolat or a braided bread here. ......
