Breakfast is eaten all day at Pappa Coffee! It’s here at this friendly family café, located not far from Pilsen’s main square, that you can enjoy great breakfasts, fresh juices and a selection of coffee (the coffee is actually roasted right on the spot), any day of the week. Follow Pappa Coffee on Facebook and never miss out on their themed Saturday brunches.
The Fresh Bar
You can get your hands on a great breakfast right in the actual heart of the city, on Pilsen’s Republic Square (the food here is so good, it even comes with its own hashtag: #wedoinstafoodtasty). The meals here don’t only taste good, they look good, too. Be sure to check out their menu, where you’ll find smoothies jam-packed with vitamins, smoothie fruit bowls and nutritious open-facing sandwiches.
Le Frenchie is a legend on the Pilsen café scene, and that’s not only thanks to its great coffee. The hand-made cakes, fresh croissants and inventive breakfasts also make the joint famous. Come here on the weekend to try their hefty English breakfast or open/closed sandwiches, made with fresh sourdough bread.
Best egg-based breakfast
Café & Restaurant hotel Continental
You can make your way to one of the oldest hotels in Pilsen for a buffet-style breakfast, right in the centre of the city. We would, however, recommend trying their breakfast option in this First Republic-style café, where you can order classics such as poached eggs and eggs Benedict.
All you morning birds out there will be grateful for Enjoy Coffee, which opens its doors every weekday at 7 a.m. (9 a.m. on weekends only in Martinská Street) and provides a menu with a little something for everyone. Every day they serve fresh quiche, panini, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, pancakes and toast with avocado, poached egg or smoked salmon at affordable prices.
Bistro Anděl has a monopoly on great coffee on Bezručova Street. Apart from the café and small shop, you’ll also find a bistro on the second floor that prepares meals from regional farmer’s goods, which have been implemented in their delicious breakfast menu. This is the ideal place for any early-morning meetings you might have planned.
DEPO2015 bistro & café
You can come to this unique, industrial-style former bus depot during the week for some breakfast and to draw inspiration from the artistic pieces and exhibitions all around you. This is a truly original place for you to hold any lunch-time meetings.
There’s now a branch of Kafec in Pilsen. You can make your way here for a truly custom-made breakfast, feel free to choose anything you want. If you’re feeling a bit sweet one day, we would recommend the fresh waffles, which are said to be the best in the city. They, too, can be combined in any breakfast meal you would like.
The modern design of Arnie’s Bistro, located in the centre of the city, tempts every passer-by to come in and try something off their original breakfast menu. From 8 a.m. you can enjoy their hardy shakshouka, a delicious meal consisting of oatmeal, carrot waffles or ricotta pancakes.
Our tip: Traditional farmer’s markets are held on Pilsen’s Republic Square from March until the end of December. Here you can go every Saturday morning for some fresh coffee and other products from local farmers.
