Střecha is a unique vegan restaurant and café in Prague, standing out for its commitment to social enterprise. It offers employment to individuals without homes and those who have served time in prison, providing them with a chance for a fresh start. So, when dining here you not only enjoy the great food and drinks, but also support the people striving for a better life and the entire community.

Chutnej is known for the best vegan pizza in Prague. But along with the pizzas there is also a wide selection of plant-based burgers made from such things as falafel, beetroot and kale. There is even a Sloppy Joe made from oyster mushrooms. 

You can also explore their daily lunch specials, which typically include a soup and entree, plus a pizza of the week. And for dinner entrees, the lasagna is probably the most popular dish, while the pumpkin risotto is a meal that non-vegans (like myself) could eat every week. though, the pizza remains king of the menu.

I swear I have never had so delicious thin crust pizza (outside of Italy maybe) in all those different variations. And the pasta, soups and desserts are equally as tasty!

While Chutnej is the main sit-down restaurant, they also operate a street-food shop in Vinohrady and a plant-based bakery and café on Voroněžská Street.

Maitrea is one of the better-known vegetarian and vegan restaurants, especially due to its central location right next to the Old Town Square. It belongs to the same family of restaurants as Lehká hlava (Clear Head), another popular vegetarian spot in Prague. Maitrea offers a variety of dishes that cater to vegetarian, vegan, and even some gluten-free diets, making it a favorite among those looking for healthier dining options or those with specific dietary preferences.

Maitrea’s menu is diverse, featuring a range of cuisines from around the world, including Czech, Asian, and Mexican dishes, all prepared with a vegetarian twist. Try local favorites such as goulash or svíčková, or also their Asian-inspired dishes such as udon noodles, wok or curries. Their huge burger and cheesy quesadilla are also a hit. Additionally, it provides a selection of organic wines, beers, and non-alcoholic beverages.

The restaurant is an ideal spot for a romantic dinner but you can also stop by for their daily lunches which are reasonably priced. There are two floors, one on the ground floor and one underground which is bigger and has a cozier feel to it. You will also notice that the interior has a touch of Zen and influences from Buddhism. The name Maitrea itself is derived from the concept of loving kindness and is associated with the future Buddha of this world in Mahayana Buddhism, symbolizing the restaurant’s commitment to compassion and wellbeing.

I suggest making a reservation as it can get busy for dinner. And after the meal you can take a walk around Old Town Square and enjoy the sights.
