Globe Bookshop & Cafe Tips (3)

The Globe Bookstore and Cafe: Books and Coffee - what a mixture!

The Globe provides not only a very laid back athmosphere but also many international newspapers on display. So if you want to get the latest news from home - Globe it is. Whatever you bought in the little bookstore, sit down in the Cafe and enjoy their great variety of Tea, Coffee and Sweets. Definitely your place if you want to enjoy a quiet time off the beaten path. The big tourist crowds won't be there.
They have exhibitions, readings and live music.

Favorite Dish We went there for Coffee. The dishes looked good, but it was shortly after breakfast, that's why we didn't eat.

The Globe Bookstore & Coffeehouse: Bookworms Unite!

I'll come right out and say it - I've never liked 'The Globe'. It's always seemed more of a resource than a bar or cafe, and the people who hang out there on the few occasions I've had a coffee always seem to come across as too cool for school, in the way young people living the dream in a foreign city can sometimes.

As a resource, however, 'The Globe' is perhaps second to none, whether you're a long term expat seeking a bit of sanctuary and peace, or if you've just rolled up and need a place to get established and find out what to do next. It's a good place for checking out the message board, which offers flats, teaching jobs and Czech lessons, among many other things, pick up flyers for exhibitions and clubs, and get a copy of 'Prague Post' to find out what's going on in the city. It also has a fairly extensive range of new and second hand books on offer, with a typically ruthless attitude to trading books (Bought it last week for 400kc, did you? We'll give you 30kc for it...)

If you have literary aspirations, you might spend more time there, as the Globe encourages would-be writers and arranges readings to other chin-strokers. All in all, a thoroughly respectable and noble place in the heart of the city, as it's always been - just don't expect to necessarily have a good time there.

Favorite Dish Once again - coffee.

The Globe Bookstore & Cafe: Funky expat haunt in the Nove Mesto

If you’re spending an extended time in Prague and need to come by English-language media and fancy hanging out with fellow expats, this ‘Globe’ is as good a place as any to start. This place is particularly popular with American students and usually has a few international editions of 'USA Today' and 'The Guardian' (UK) on hand to browse through over your coffee. The food & drink are of good quality and value and the English-language bookstore is well stocked, even selling plenty of second-hand books if you’re budget’s wearing thin. Staff here are helpful and knowledgeable and the internet access here is fast and cheap.
