Imagine, you wake up on a lazy Saturday morning around 10 AM somewhere in late Spring, when Prague is finally warm after what feels like a forever winter period. You’ve worked hard the whole week on your studies and have a load of work to yet catch up with, however, before that you deserve some self-love. You text your friends: “Let’s go for brunch” and start getting ready. Life is good. Then your friends text you back saying, “let’s go, but where?” and this is the moment, you will recall this blog post.
Although most people know Prague for its distinguished pubs and beers, it would be an oversight to ignore its coffee and coffee shops, widely spread within the districts. So, what is it that makes these coffee shops so unique? For me, perhaps, it is the source of motivation: assuring myself to get certain assignments done by the time workers close their doors and rewarding myself with the desserts on the vitrine. And yes, I go to cafes not because of the coffee, contrary to popular belief, but because of their blueberry cheesecakes and Earl Grey tea.
Being brought up in a vegetarian family, I had a hard time finding vegetarian options in restaurants when I moved to Prague from New Delhi. It’s when my sister came to visit me in March of 2022 that I tried to find some vegan/vegetarian places to eat, since she is vegan. It turns out, there are some amazing vegan and vegetarian places in Prague, so I’m going to suggest them to you!
“Next time, you will come here as a guest”, my mom told me before we got out of the house on the day of my departure. New life, adult life, opened its doors for me when the green door of my home, with scratches from both of my dogs, closed itself behind my back.
Prague welcomed me in a different way than I expected – with grey clouds and cold weather. I noticed a regret about not bringing a scarf. With the feeling of being a foreigner and a stranger in a new country on top of that, I felt a bit down.
