    Tulip Cafe: On the Slippery Slope.

    Six months ago, Tulip Cafe was a stylish little cafe/restaurant/bar in the cool, quietly stylish way of a lot of new Prague eateries. With it's lowkey but classy interior and requisite chilled out sounds on the stereo, it was a great place to take in a leisurely lunch special.

    The lunch specials are still there (mostly under 100kc, including Soup of the Day) but sadly since the new owner has bought the place out, it's gone down hill. Since coming under his tenure, he's proceeded to do...well, nothing basically. Now the place is getting a faintly shabby look. It doesn't look quite so stylish anymore, and just looks a little tired.

    But still. The food is passable to decent, and the 'Beat the Clock' beer deal is just plain dangerous - at 4pm, the beer starts off at only 15kc, and increases in price every forty-five minutes. That's just asking for trouble...

    Favorite Dish: The lunch specials, because I can afford them. Most recently I went for the Burger and Fries, just to be adventurous, and also got a filling bowl of red lentil soup to kick things off (Chunky, delicious). Once the burger arrived, it was pleasingly ragged and homemade, with plenty of salad and mustard. It was one of those big boys you have to use a knife and fork on. It was surrounded by acres of fries, which were, unfortunately, as dry as old lino.

    Still, for 89kc, you can't really complain in this part of town.

    Tulip Cafe: sweet spot - for meals or just a drink

    ok...this place is quite nice. they serve a good breakfast brunch buffett that's not too shabby. it's your choice of a main dish with an added table of (local) buffett goodies.
    great coffee!!!
    comfy atmosphere - it's sooo NOT ikea decor which is sometimes hard to find in this country unless you're willing to pay high prices, which you don't here!
    upstairs - great couches/tables/chairs ensemble. colors of room range from a soft olive to deep lavendar...makes you feel calm (i think)
    outside garden - has potential to be great...they need to work on decor outside, but it's quiet and nice
    downstairs - lounge. looks like upstairs, but a little more chilled...

    food is great. they keep working on the menu to make better - like they have their own bun for hamburgers, and its quite nice.

    Favorite Dish: i love their breakfast burrito. and their coffee. yummy.

    Tulip: Cafe

    This café/bar is again under new management.

    A coat of paint and new menus make a world of difference.

    Its fairly central location keeps it lively but mainly with expats and locals.

    Favorite Dish: The soups are always really tasty and filling.
