We stopped by for some Sangria to warm up, the prague weather is getting super cold. It was tasty and my spanish friends were also happy with it. They were very friendly, had a family feel to it.

Our goto place near our apt was booked since it was St. Martin's Day. The Czech St Martin's Day traditions luckily do not have a Hispanic component, so there was room at El Centro, which certainly was a welcome outcome for many reasons. Their Cafe...More
