Czech Republic was never on my “die-die-must-visit” list. So, I was very lucky to visit it when I was studying in Europe, and more so to have chanced upon a beautiful little café that was hidden in one of the residential streets of Prague. When I entered it, I was surprised that this pretty and cosy café was not at all crowded. There were just a few locals sitting sparsely at the tall tables and a Czech teacher who brought her kindergarten students to the café for an excursion.
The ambience was not all to this treasure cove. The rows of pastries and salads were the highlight. If I could stomach all of that food, I would have, but there was only me and my travel partner, two petite Asian girls with small stomachs. So, we bought a handful of items to share. The marble cheesecake and baked pumpkin soup were to die for. That creamy soup had so much depth and flavours, it was definitely enough to make a yummy meal. It came as a shock to me when I fell in love with their marble cheesecake; as I was always anti-cheesecake (afraid of the bolts of nausea they always leave me with). The cream cheese was rich and sweet, just to the delicate point of not being sickening and would leave you craving for more.
If you are wandering on the nostalgic streets of Prague and looking for somewhere nice and cosy with healthy and hearty comfort food, Bakeshop is definitely one eatery that you will not want to miss. It is about 10 minutes’ walk from the Old Town Square of Prague.
