Café Louvre was founded in 1902, but the coffee house disappeared under Communism. Too bourgeois.
These days, it is going strong. It obviously underwent a restoration in more recent times. The paint may be a little bright, but the room is not overly ornate. It does feel like a real, working café instead of a museum or Disney ride.
In fact, if you have an eye for spotting Czech celebrities, politicians and other movers and shakers, you may see a few on any given afternoon. The tourists are easier to spot. It is usually pretty full.
There are, of course, a variety of coffees. The food menu is not exactly Czech, but does center on dishes that appeal to the Czech palate. There is rabbit with white wine, lamb with rosemary, duck with mandarins, pork tenderloin with bacon, steak with pepper sauce, and goulash.
It's a meaty place, but they do have a few fish, pasta, and vegetarian options. They do breakfast, but the choices aren't too wide if you don't like basic omelets or scrambled eggs. There are also sausages, cheeses, and cakes.
