Wow, there was some great food in Prague. The prices were very low and the portions were huge everywhere! It was also never difficult to find a good restaurant - a problem that frequently I have when traveling.
I arrived at Cafe Savoy pretty early on Sunday morning, which I learned is a pretty bad idea unless you have previously made a reservation. Luckily I wanted to visit the nearby Museum Kampa, so I made my quick reservation and strolled off. The interior of the Cafe Savoy is just a fancy as the exteriors of all of the buildings around Prague. I actually felt like I was on the set of a romantic comedy movie - was that perfect.

Trdelnik's are everywhere in the Prague Old Town. A Trdelnik is basically sweet dough wrapped around a slowly revolving metal rod set over a roasting fire. The inside stays soft and the outside gets crispy and can be rolled in cinnamon or other flavors. I thought it was pretty tasty!
I visited Aldolce on the recommendation from somewhere online (I'm sorry I can't remember where I found it!). I'm so glad that I visited Aldolce and tried the recommended pistachio ice cream. It was to die for. Aldolce is located right in the Jewish section, so while you are eating your ice cream you can stroll around synagogs.

In my trip planning for Prague I found the Leica Cafe. I was beyond excited about this find because my Dad has always been a huge Leica-lover. The Leica Cafe was wonderful as I expected and had an exhibit of photographs taken with a variety of Leica cameras. If you are a fan of Leica cameras you should visit this cafe!
Skolska 693/28 Prague 1
These sausage street vendors are ubiquitous in Prague. They serve super cheap and fast sausages that make a great snack or quick meal. Yum!
When I met up with J after his conference he needed a bit of a pick me up. This came in the form of a cappuccino and carrot cake from Bake Shop. This cafe was the winner of the trip for me. I loved the interior of the iconic Cafe Savoy; however, I found the greeter at the door very rude and was made to feel rather uncomfortable during my entire time there. The Bake Shop was the exact opposite. The people were friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed, and the tables were cool- you could duck underneath the table to sit in the window (I'm not sure how else to describe it).

Lebanese - U Cedru
J and I visited U Cedru and ordered the taster menu for two. It was incredible! Don't let the distance from the Old Town of Prague prevent you from visiting this amazing restaurant. The food was incredible and the portions were literally so gigantic. Bonus: the owner was very friendly!
I picked up wafer cookies on a recommendation from one of J's friends. Excellent recommendation! These were delicious!
