Mama Coffee | Vegan in Prague

Today I wanna talk to you guys about Mama Coffee: another awesome place we visited during our trip to Prague. Mama Coffee’s amazingly diverse vegan-friendly menu, coupled with its super cute café vibe made it one of our favourite vegan eateries we visited during our trip.

Firstly, we have to talk about the soya hot chocolate as it was absolutely incredible, like the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had! It was so rich, yet creamy, and was basically like drinking a liquid chocolate shot! I just couldn’t get enough and ordered, let’s say quite a few, during our meal!

For main, we shared four dishes: sundried tomato & sesame paste on toast, pita bread & hummus, the veggie burger, and ukrainian dumplings. We both loved all of them; however the ukrainian dumplings were a definite favourite! They reminded me of the creamy pasta meals I used to have as a child and were so comforting and delicious. The sundried tomato & sesame paste on toast was also such a flavourful and unique dish and for sure something I would order again.

Mama Coffee is an incredible place to visit if you’re looking for delicious and unique vegan options; and luckily it is not alone, as there are plenty more awesome places to get vegan food in Prague. Check out my Prague Vegan Guide to read about all of the places we visited during our trip.

Maitrea Vegan Restaurant | Prague

As promised in my Prague Vegan Guide, this week I am going to be featuring some of my favourite restaurants we visited on our trip; and what better way to start than with Maitrea – the restaurant Matt has dubbed his new favourite restaurant in the entire world! Matt and I loved the food at Maitrea so much in fact that we visited twice during our short time in Prague and ordered the exact same 3 courses to share on both days!

Maitrea is a beautifully decorated vegetarian & vegan restaurant located in Old Town Prague. The vegan and veganisable options (as well as lots of other allergens) are all clearly labelled on the menu, making it easy to see which delicious dishes you can choose from.

We absolutely loved every single dish we ate there; so, if you visit Prague and only have time to visit one vegan restaurant, make it Maitrea!

STARTERS ▷▷▷

To start we shared the veganised tempeh bruschetta and the vegan cream of split pea soup. Maitrea’s unique take on classic bruschetta was bursting with flavour, and the soup was so creamy and comforting.

MAINS ▷▷▷

For main we shared the vegan maitrea vegeburger and the vegan paella à la barcelona. The burger was absolutely delicious and was complimented perfectly by the barbecue sauce, caramelized onion, and tempeh bacon it was served with. The paella was equally delicious and its combination of veggies, sundried tomatoes and tofu created an amazing fusion on flavours.

DESSERTS ▷▷▷

Finally, for dessert we had the warm vegan pancake from the kid’s menu and it was absolutely amazing! The pancake was filled with a delicious chocolate sauce and topped with sweet caramelised bananas and grapes (just typing that out made me want to go back and order 10 of these, not to share!!!)

As you guys can tell, we fell in love with Maitrea’s incredibly diverse menu and next time we visit Prague, this will for sure be our first stop!

If you’re planning on visiting Maitrea, it’s worth noting that it can get very busy at peak times (which is a testament to how incredible the food is), so be sure to book your table in advance to avoid long wait times. Maitrea also has a sister restaurant – Lehka Hlava – which we didn’t get to visit but their menu looked awesome too, so if you have a chance I’m sure it would be worth a visit!

PRAGUE VEGAN GUIDE

At the start of January, Matt and I spent four days in the beautiful city of Prague. The combination of snow, beautiful architecture, christmas markets and an abundance of vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants made it our new favourite city! Whilst exploring the city, we tried out as many vegan eateries as possible and I’m really happy to be able to share them all with you today.
