Located in New Town and active in the Czech Republic for over 120 years, the French Institute is indeed an institute in its own right with a library, a cinema, a gallery, a café, school and more. The perfect place for a Francophile or a French expat, the French institute feels inexorably French, especially the café which features a true Parisian atmosphere and offers coffees, hot chocolate, tea, wine, beer, hot and cold sandwiches and much more including truly delicious pain au chocolat. The café is a cultural center in itself, featuring up-to-date French newspapers and magazines, contemporary French music, art exhibitions of paintings and photography and free Wi-Fi. At Café 35 you can start your day with a real French breakfast including French pastries such as croissants, chocolate rolls or apple pies or enjoy a French specialty for lunch such as quiches, salads, soups and terrines.
