There are two things I knew about Vinohrady before venturing across the river for this assignment: it boasts a lot of expats and coffee shops. Thus, for a coffee shop to survive in such a competitive neighborhood, you know it must be good. Coffee Corner, a bustling, cozy spot just near the Perunova tram stop, is a warm haven on cold days.
When you first walk in, you will be struck by the cozy atmosphere. Beautiful cakes await you in a display case underneath the chalkboard sign advertising the day’s specials. The furniture is mismatched, creating an atmosphere of arty disheveldness that matches the eclectic artwork on the walls.The place is usually packed with a mix of local families and expats, and it pays to get there early on the weekends for brunch, because otherwise it could be a decent wait for a free table.
The food is standard cafe fare with a twist. In the mornings they offer a delicious breakfast. I’ve had both the oat banana pancakes and the yogurt with granola and both were absolutely scrumptious. Coffee Corner also offers a wide variety of drinks and has seasonal coffee specialties. Their London Fog, an Earl Gray latte, is honestly the best cup of coffee I have ever had in my life – and I take my coffee very seriously.
I take my cafe culture very seriously, and I have no problem saying this is one of the best cafes in Prague and another reason to venture into the heart of Vinohrady.
