118 00 Prague, Czech Republic
Conveniently located right between Hradčany and Petrin Park, this quirky café has a less-touristy and less-expensive atmosphere than most restaurants in the area. A modest café, the menu is small but honest, much like the décor. The name, which means "the hanging coffee cup," comes from an unusual tradition: the idea is that affluent clients can sponsor a cup of coffee for the next starving artist who comes in. This support for struggling scribblers and sculptors exemplifies the warm spirit of this comforting café.
