The custom bar is the centerpiece of this bright, modern café just down the street from Palac Akropolis. Pavlac, run by a young Czech photographer, began with a specifically artistic idea: small exhibitions from local artists could be found out back, so you can imagine how local scenesters and artistic ex-pats were drawn to the joint. While there hasn't been much new art up for a while, free wifi and shockingly cheap but thoughtful fare keeps stylish students coming back to spend hours, chatting, working, and even conducting language exchanges. Although the service can be a bit curt, it's efficient and generally servers can conduct business in English, which can prove quite useful. This café is perfect for a filling breakfast, a long lunch, or a cheap and trendy dinner. It's even got a fully stocked bar, making it a good place for a drink on a Friday or Saturday evening before hitting the lively Zizkov bar-scene.
