If you really want to eat where the locals eat, look no further than this cafeteria where ALL options are well below 100 CZK. When you enter, you will be handed a ticket – don’t lose it or you’ll need to pay a 500 CZK penalty – and then collect a tray, peruse the various food stations, and select whatever captures your fancy.

 

They offer sweet and savory options, both warm and cold. I definitely recommend indulging in a sweet lunch of Ovocné knedlíky s tvarohem a máslem (fruit dumplings with shredded quark cheese and butter), as it is excellent and only 29 CZK; if you fancy something savory, they offer all the Czech classics, including guláš and svíčková. Pilsner beer is on tap for 36 CZK for a .5 liter glass. After paying, take a seat in one of the many seating areas and enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner with very few tourists in sight. Shockingly, they have signage in English – bonus!
