Children’s Cafés

Children’s cafés are very popular in Czechia. They are cafés adapted to smaller children as for their equipment and menu. Many of them have not only toys, small tables and chairs and staff used to children running around but also baby swings, seats or even cribs. Brno has a lot of cafés for children, we are sure we didn’t cover all of them but here are some really good ones.

  • Kids Café Brno – in the very center, suitable for smaller children. Masarykova 25. More info:
