This bistro catches your attention primarily by the unique design of wallpapers that gives you feeling of paradise. Since its opening, Spižírna 1902 is one of the most Instagrammed cafés in Prague. Beside this exceptional design, you can enjoy a fresh Czech food made from local and seasonal ingredients.
I must admit that my primary reason for the first visit was the interior wallpaper design made by Ieva Ozola. She is a brilliant artist that I met once at Vnitroblock, and since then I follow her artwork on Facebook. Ieva also designed logo Czech by Jane, and I am very grateful for her support.
In translation to English, Spižírna means a pantry for storage of food. Number 1902 refers to the year when the building was constructed. Even the tiled floor is the original one. I like this mixture of tradition with modern industrial style and catchy design. In this way, Spižírna is a unique place.
Beside my adoration of design, I should not forget the food itself. The bistro offers simple and fresh food that is changing according to the season. So, the menu is different every day. Check the traditional Czech pastry, such as “buchty” and other made by the traditional recipes. Especially check the marmalade, honey, and syrups prepared by the mother of the owner itself. Try the menu of ample breakfast, weekend brunches, light lunches, and dinners.
