La Bottega di Finestra
Today we’re in Prague tucking into an energy-building brekkie before embarking on a walking tour of the city.
La Bottega is a contemporary bistro and Italian deli with a dining area at the front where they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tasty goodies on shelves and in cases surround you: bread and authentic Italian pastries baked fresh daily, home made pasta and desserts and chocolates.
At the back of the shop you’ll find fresh meat and veg daily, a fabulous array of salami, ham and cheese. And an impressive wine selection.
The breakfast menu offers old favourites and some different dishes, too. Starting with an Italian-style omelette with Fontina cheese, served with crispy bacon.
I went for the delightful-sounding three minute eggs in the glass with clarified butter and chives. Sort of like buttery boiled eggs without the shell – a perfect light breakfast treat.
Scrambled eggs came wrapped in marinated salmon. A classic.
Or for a healthier option how about the banana omelette served with fresh fruit and greek yogurt. Novel idea!
The coffee is fantastic here. Fresh and professionally made and presented. There’s also a lovely range of fresh juices – I had beetroot – sorry for not taking a picture of it. It was tasty and beautifully pink.
Fresh loaves of bread are displayed on the counter to tempt you.
There’s a also a range of salads waiting for the lunch-time rush.
And of course traditional Italian sweetness.
The interior is bright and contemporary with plenty of space for viewing the displays of wonderful offer and floor-to-ceiling windows giving you a great outdoor perspective, too.
We liked Bottega di Finestra so much that we went back the next day. Its excellent food, friendly welcoming service and mouth-watering deli displays made it too good to resist.
