Although this looks like an outdoor fast-food restaurant, it offers premium selections of sausage, beef, and other meat. Wonderful for late-night, post-pub snacks. You can also enjoy a cup of hot wine, or if you're recovering from a long night at the pub, coffee.
Wenceslas Square is one of the more touristy areas of Prague, but it's gorgeous during the Christmas season. Lights dangle on the facades of buildings, and venders sell food, trinkets, and drinks in decorated stalls. If you want to shop, stroll around, or visit the National Museum, this is your kind of spot. The Square also has excellent Indian, Japanese, and Asian fusion restaurants, for those who want a break from Czech food.
