A Proud Tradition

By Minty805
One of the many attractions of Prague is the number of old cafes, which maintain the high standards of service and respect of yesteryear, where people meet for coffee, afternoon tea or something stronger, and pass the time of day or conduct business. If memory serves, this was the Cafe Imperial, where the staff took great pride in their work and the ambience was of more genteel times. I was going to catch the waiters at work, but they were so willing to pose, I went with it. The slightly antique processing style seemed appropriate. The version is part of the ornate wall and ceiling behind them.
Thanks for looking.

Good memories, I remember a superb coffee shop on Wenceslas Square... There are still places that resist Starbucks.

It is great to see waiters who take pride in their work, and quite happy to pose. I also like their pristine serving clothes.

When I was there, I saw not only old cafes, but a Caffrey's Irish Bar, just off the old town square! 🍺 I actually dined and supped in a cafe in the square, had a tasty goulash with dumplings. A fine capture here, Allan, and it looks very ornate inside. The processing suits it well in the lead 😃👍🏻
