Tips on newly opened gastro spots in Pilsen
Pleasant afternoons spent sitting in open-air terraces may now be in the past, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy Pilsen’s gastro-scene to the fullest. We’ve compiled a few tips for you on new establishments in Pilsen, some of which were opened not long ago, while others have already been here a bit longer but may have gone unnoticed by you. So, what are you feeling? The choice is yours!
Hospoda Na Spilce
After its renovations, Hospoda Na Spilce, located right in the courtyard of the Pilsner Urquell Brewery, reopened its doors just this past summer. Apart from the unrivalled Pilsner beer, it also offers a refreshing menu full of traditional Czech food with a modern take. Farmers local to the Pilsen region provide the kitchen with delicious ingredients.
Lovers of Italian cuisine now have yet another haven in Pilsen. The rich gastronomic offers available on Riegrova Street were recently added onto by the Italian restaurant Cantina. Come try the fresh Italian pasta, the succulent seafood, and sit down with a glass of wine and nibble at the wide array of cheeses, olives, and smoked meats.
If you’ve ever visited a Prosekárna in another city, then you surely know what to expect. This paradise for prosecco fans can now also be found in Pilsen on Malá Street near Republic Square. Trust us, if you come here on a date or with friends, you won’t be staying “just for one glass”.
You can’t miss the Croûte bakery on Bezručova Street thanks to its lovely smells. Since they started baking their splendid croissants and bread here, countless locals have fallen in love with this spot. Apart from traditional baked goods, their menu also offers nut and caraway bread, both sweet and salty croissants, crunchy baguettes, and choco rolls.
You maybe already know the Korean bistro Korjo-saram from the farmers’ market. For a while now, though, they’ve also operated out of their new address Klatovská třída 6 (accessible from Tylova Street). You can come here during the day for lunch or order some healthy vegetable kimchi salads and other Korean delicacies to-go.
Since the nearby Walter cafe opened its sister shop Mitty, the doors haven’t closed. This espresso bar specialises in sweet baked goods and handcrafted bread, however, they also serve a number of other specialities here. We recommend the passion fruit pie to go with your coffee, or the kimchi grilled cheese sandwich as a quick lunch.
