Café Neustads is a place where one finds the spirit of alternative Berlin scene, something from Franz Kafka, something form Rammstein. It serves also as a cultural centre in the Prague´s downtown. I has never happened to me before that I would enter a café and where the lights would be turned off and there was a disco ball instead.
Those of you who visited Portugal are surely familiar with pastalarias, a type of cafe where locals meet each other, and where one can find all of these tasty confections, puff pastry and delicious caffee just for a few cents. I find places like this extremely charming. Most of the people just come to buy something for breakfast or a snack after work, and leave, yet some stay longer and enjoy their cup of coffee while reading newspapers. A shop assistant usually knows most of the clients with whom he exchanges a few words. Sometimes a random tourist passes by who finds this atmosphere as charming as I do.
