Bistro 8 is one the first establishments of its kind in Prague. They offer great food and house made cakes, baked by the owner and his wife. Since the owner lives in the apartment above the bistro, you can often see him carrying a still warm cake, just out of the oven. Most of their baked goods are also available in other coffee shops in Prague, for example in Bajkazyl in Zizkov.
I love the interior here, it’s retro themed, enhanced by various chotchkies, but yet simple and minimalist. Bistro 8 is also an active member of the local community, which attempts to improve the neighborhood through various civic activities. The owners support young Czech artists, so you can often see photography exhibitions, paintings and illustrations while you enjoy your coffee in Bistro 8.
I would definitely recommend you go there if you are looking for a healthy alternative to fast food, moreover the bistro is vegan/vegetarian friendly. They offer a great selection of homemade sodas of unusual flavors, such as lavender and clove, warm seasonal soups and a variety of homemade desserts. Due to the fine location and popularity among locals, Bistro 8 has been a successful project, which inspired the owner to launch more attractive businesses in the neighborhood. In summer, Bistro 8 makes for a convenient place to drop by and grab some food, if you are heading for a picnic in the nearby parks Letna, or Stromovka or some hot chocolate in winter.
