This place stands out from other Prague cafés: a large, industrial space housed in an old building that flanks one side of the Klementinum, near Charles Bridge. Presenting a mix of decorative styles – simple wooden chairs with stainless-steel tables, an industrial steel bar, angular sculptures and odd artwork – Café Indigo is very ‘avant-prague’, although some of its design elements date back 30 years.
rnThe large dimensions and arty (rather than chic) décor give the place an intellectual feel, and indeed it’s more popular with students and locals than tourists. That said, it’s friendly enough and the lack of pretension can be refreshing after you’ve experienced some of the city’s cooler hotspots.
rnThe menu, which consists of steady Czech options, won’t bowl you over, but it is cheap, and you can get a decent beer or glass of wine. A good place for a quiet lunch or a quick beer, or for reading an existentialist novel with a glass of Moravian wine.
