One of the best cafes in Prague is located in the Cubist House of the Black Madonna. The Grand Cafe Orient is in sync with the architectural style of the house and showcases the most elegant Cubist interior in the world. The cafe reopened in March 2005 after an extensive renovation based on black and white photographs, trying to reclaim the vibe and atmosphere of the cafe in 1912. The furniture and brass chandeliers are replicas based on the photographs. In this green and brown oblong cafe, famous for being an engineering feat as no supporting columns are present, you will find excellent service and a wonderful menu featuring breakfast, savory and sweet crepes, salads, and scrumptious desserts. A cappuccino goes fabulously with the homemade apple strudel served with warm caramel and vanilla ice cream, delicious! The menu also features wine, milkshakes and Bohemia Sekt sparkling wine. Go back in time by visiting the Grand Orient Cafe and dream of the heydays of Czech artists during the Cubism movement.
