On our second day in Prague, we decide to start our morning with another cup of coffee at mamacoffee. This time, instead of our first visit to their downtown outlet, we wander to their original café in the quieter neighbourhood of Londýnská. This café is older and much smaller but benefits from winsome outdoor seating, perfect to enjoy rays of sun streaming through the shrubbery during summer.

Inside plenty of air plants hang from the ceiling and walls, giving the entire space the feel of a bohemian greenhouse. As we aren’t particularly hungry, we only order a walnut muffin to go with our hand-brewed black coffee and cappuccino. Simple but good.


Chatting with the barista about coffee and travelling, we realise this is what travel is about – the journey, the experience, the stories and the communion between strangers. Simple but true.

布拉格第二天的行程,我們以mamacoffee拉開序曲。
不同於第一天所拜訪的那家,這次我們來到的是mamacoffee的老店。
和之前在鬧市的那家相比,老店比較小巧,而且設有戶外座位,
食物選擇則沒有那麼多,只有一些簡單的糕點、甜品。
不變的是,在室內依然可以看到不少綠色植物蹤影。

由於還不餓,我們只點了一杯黑咖啡、一杯卡布和一份核桃鬆糕。
香脆的核桃,鬆軟的口感加上不會過甜,
配上咖啡,就是我們簡單的早餐了。
而這裡的卡布的味道不錯,不過奶泡稍微弱了些,
我還是喜歡他們的黑咖啡多些。
趁著早晨的人潮未到來之際,
我們便邊享用咖啡,還邊和咖啡師聊天。
大家分享了在旅行時所遇到的咖啡館的故事,喜歡的咖啡等。
又是一位親切健談的咖啡愛好者。
酒逢知己千杯少,其實咖啡嘛也一樣,呵呵。

Yup, it’s pretty fantastic — the shade especially is a boon on warmer summer days.

Coffee, dessert, and great conversation courtesy of a very friendly (and knowledgeable) barista!

You just have to find the right cup of coffee, dear — one without the acrid bitterness but some natural sweetness or bright acidity. Then that sip shall be a revelation onto itself. 👍
