The Best Breakfast And Brunch Spots In Pilsen, Czech Republic

Gwen Starkman

Pilsen, Czech Republic, is like a mini Prague: full of history but without the crowds. The town is home to the Pilsner Urquell Brewery, as well as great shops and restaurants. Make a good weekend great by checking out Pilsner’s best breakfast and brunch spots when in town.


1. Lamborghini caffe

Cafe, Czech

The Lamborghini caffe is a hit with both tourists and locals. The cafe boasts bespoke coffee drinks, claiming to choose only the freshest and most aromatic coffee beans and meticulously training their baristas to create that unique Lamborghini taste. The breakfast menu is pretty traditional, featuring omelets, salty and savory pancakes (more like crepes), French toast and quiches. There are also fresh juices and daily baked breads on offer.

2. Nykty's

Cafe, European, Vegetarian

Nykty’s rates as one of the best restaurants in Pilsen. Located in the main square right across from the cathedral of St. Bartholomew, the cafe has great views as well as great food. They offer traditional English breakfasts (with eggs, toast, beans and sausage) and American breakfasts (minus the beans and add pancakes), and an unbeatable coffee and tea selection as well.

3. Caffé 7g

Cafe, Restaurant, Czech

Caffé 7g‘s unique, old world atmosphere is sure to charm any customer. The cafe serves traditional breakfast options, like eggs with cheese and ham, as well as baguettes. Though where Caffé 7g truly excels is their pastry and sweet options. The apple strudel and walnut cake can make any mouth water, while the mulled wine is a stand-out winter treat that, while arguably not for breakfast, is fantastic.

4. Le Frenchie café

Le Frenchie café

This up-and-coming café is the hit of the neighborhood right now. Customers are almost always treated to freshly brewed coffee and newly baked goodies upon entering. Le Frenchie café’s great coffee and pastries are just a cherry on top, with friendly staff and a fine atmosphere besides. If heading in for brunch or an afternoon snack, be sure to check out the truly scrumptious cakes, especially the cheesecake.

This folksy cafe is actually part of a chain. The original Caffé Hardy was founded in the 1950’s in Milan and has been a landmark of the Italian city ever since. Though a few decades newer, Pilsner’s Caffé Hardy holds all the same charm and traditions as the original. You can’t go wrong with their authentic Italian coffees and drinks. Check out their full English, French, and Czech breakfast meals for a great start to the day.

6. CrossCafe
