Located on Karlínské Náměstí, Cafe Frida is another of the many delightful surprises popping up in the increasingly trendy neighborhood of Karlín. Serving fresh Únětické and Mexican inspired cuisine, Cafe Frida is a fun spot for an afternoon beer or pleasant evening with friends.
At Cafe Frida, Únětické 10° and 12° are on tap, complimented by a small but tasty menu of Mexican inspired cuisine and burgers. As all Únětické should be, the beer is fresh and cold, served with a frothy head in a dimpled mug. A third tap rotates between local Czech microbrews, often serving an ale or seasonal beer. With latino flare, quality Czech beer, and an artsy atmosphere, a visit to Cafe Frida is just one of the many reasons to visit Karlín.
The cuisine has a more homemade feel; it’s not authentic Mexican, but simple, honest, and accompanies an Únětické perfectly. At the time of our visit, the burgers were a pleasant surprise; tender, juicy meat, topped with a chipotle sauce and fresh veggies on a nice bun. With a choice of three fillings, the burritos fill a plate and are extremely tasty. You’ll also find nachos and quesadillas on the menu. In line with their latino theme, they have a large variety of rums, and you can even try a degustation.
Dimly lit, this high ceiled cafe/bar attracts a wide variety of clientele, from the younger artsy serious cafe goers, to older locals who enjoy the fine beer and rum. Service can at times be a bit slow, but the staff is friendly. Decorated with local art and a few colorful murals, Cafe Frida is a charming place where latino cafe culture meets one of the best Czech lagers.
Take trams 3 or 8 to stop Karlínské Náměstí or Cafe Frida is a 5 minute walk from the B metro station Křižíkova.
