Bar Bresto

1

Bresto is a tiny wine bar just a few steps further up on Stepanska from the Cafe 35. The thing that I like most about Bresto is the fact that there is quite a nice selection of wine they sell by the glass; no need to invest in a bottle of Côtes du Rhône just to find out it is not quite your taste. There is also a restaurant attached – if you feel like having proper lunch – but I never had the chance to give it a try.

What I did test were the starters they offer in the wine lounge – nothing very exciting but clean and fresh and the service was impeccable (the prunes in bacon are my favourite). If you liked your glass of wine you can also buy the wine on the spot – not cheap but a decent choice of mainly French & Italian wine. 3000950461_5462af0130

Bresto also offer a large choice of coffee beans to taste and buy – again I am no good at it  – so you will have to test it for yourself. 

Bresto is a nice place for a quick glass of wine (or two) with your wife or girlfriend and it is definitely the place to have an “apéro” * with friends before diner or to get ready for Prague’s nightlife.

*French :  sort of a “late-afternoon, pre-dinner cocktail” – but then French would tell you that it is a whole concept …
