If you’ve been in Montreal long enough, you would know that you have to venture a little further than the center of the city to discover any of it’s hidden gems. Van Horne just happens to be one of those streets that are home to a European inspired café that is guaranteed to seduce you with one of its little marvels. Café Prague is known for its “chlebicky”, which is Czech for open-faced sandwiches, ranging between 2.50 and 5.00 dollars a pop. These little marvels as they are called at Café Prague, are composed of different kinds of spreads, cheeses and either meats or vegetables that are usually garnished with fresh herbs. The roast beef, blue cheese and beet chlebicky topped with horseradish vinaigrette is literally a delight in a bite. It’s recommended you try two or three of these bite-sized sandwiches accompanied with a soup or salad of the day. Compliment your meal with one of their pastries like their apple struddle; everything at Café Prague is baked in-house and with fresh ingredients. The food isn’t the only thing marvellous about this place. The walls are decorated with black and white photographs, while jazz music occupies the atmosphere allowing for an intimate and refreshing setting. Considering that there is no available Wi-Fi connection at Café Prague, it invites the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations amongst each other or other clientele without any distractions.
