We visited almost daily due to the location of our apartment very close by. The bakes were good, but yes the service wasn't great, but not bad enough to stop us from visiting for good food.

There other branches of Krusta in the city and I'm writing specifically about this location. Impolite owner and professional in ripping of tourists. The amount of icecream was too short. After a few bites it was finished, the left over was thick bread part. We tried also another version of fresh cooked bread with nutella. The owner did not answer... More

Via TripAdvisor, we ended up trying to buy lunch in this small but cosy bakery. The goods looked nice but it was the incredibly rude lady behind the counter that made us walk away from this place. We looked at how she treated the customers in front of us (visibly very annoyed by a misunderstanding with the customer) and decided... More

Great location at one end of the Charles bridge. They make the Trdelnik outdoors and it's an interesting process. The Trdelnik itself looks a lot better than it tastes. Ok to eat once while in Prague and experience the hype firsthand

I walked across the Charles Bridge and as I looked below, I noticed a lady making Trdelník. It felt like I was watching a romantic movie set in Prague. I decided to walk down the stairs after learning that Trdelník is a traditional Czech hollowed pastry/cake with the option of having a filling. There are different fillings offered, but the... More

Crispy on the outside and soft inside. Freshly made. Multiple locations around the city but one right under the Charles Bridge. Watch them make it from up above

Great for a traditional Trdelník when on the Charles Bridge. The bakery offers a nice range of pastries and perfect for food on the go.

I had a sandwich which was good, the coffee was good too but it was coffee. What I like a lot about the place was the location. And I was lucky, it was Saturday morning and a jazz band was playing right on front of me. it's a cool place for a quick snack over all.

Right where the Charles Bridge begins, this bakery was a stone's throw from our apartment as well. We dropped in for breakfast on our 2nd day in Prague... The coffee was quite good, and so were the pretzels and almond croissants. There was a varied choice in pastries and sweet and savory tidbits... Was good value for money too.

trdelinks are mostly fresh and hot. Very handy for fast re-energyzing while walking around Charles bridge on Mala Strana side. The rest of bakery goods is often stale, especially at the morning. Salepersons are not inspiring either.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
