Cafe Savoy boasts one of Prague’s most marvelous dining rooms, presided over by a government protected, neo-renaissance ceiling dating back to 1893. The colors and intricate detail of the ceiling are illuminated by the huge windows that run the length of the space. The cafe has hosted a number of famous clientele during more than 100 years of service, including writers like Franz Kafka. Although Cafe Savoy serves delicious Czech classics such as beef steak tartare and pork schnitzel, it is most popular for its hearty breakfasts. Early morning options include the much praised Savoy omelette and a wide selection of pastries.
