As you might have already noticed, Czech cuisine is not the healthiest on earth. It’s great, sure, but quite meat-based and heavy. If you are a vegetarian or, lord forbid, a vegan, a trip to a traditional restaurant can turn into a nightmare as you slowly eliminate all items on the menu leaving you with nothing but potatoes (much like Elijah Wood’s character in Everything is Illuminated). Sure, I’m exaggerating a little bit, but until recently it really was not easing being a herbivore in a carnivore’s world. Fortunately, Prague has been getting a lot better in this aspect.
And Cafe Moment is one of the places that while I’ve only visited a handful of times, has left me with a positive outlook and made me want to dine out again. They have only been open since April but I already know it’s a place I will frequent often. Serving both as a bistro and cafe, Moment is cozy, yet refreshingly simple, offering a variety of breakfast foods as well as a delicious vegan lunch, which changes daily.
Most of their ingredients come from farmer’s markets like the one in nearby Jiřího z Poděbrad square, which appeals to my ecological side, they also have a variety of beers, as well as cider, maté and ginger ale from F.H Prager, a local company.
Despite the huge competition when it comes to cafes in this neighbourhood I am fairly sure Moment will make it, becoming a popular hangout for the locals.
