Back in May, myself and Dara went on our second trip to our favourite city, Amsterdam, and of course we ate all around us. There are so many amazing restaurants and cafes in Amsterdam that even after being there twice, we've only scratched the surface. Since my first Amsterdam food guide was so popular last year, I thought you may like another one with some of the new places we tried and loved on our trip. If you haven't already seen the first Amsterdam food guide, you can read that here.

Bulls & Dogs

First up we have that glorious creation you can see above. Bulls and Dogs do some insane hot dogs, with seriously imaginative toppings but the main reason we checked it out was for their "Freakalious Milkshakes". Now be warned, these milkshakes are not to be messed with and we struggled to finish one between us, but man was it delicious! Since we were in Amsterdam we decided to go for the 'Dutch Cookie Wookie' milkshake that was stroopwafel inspired and so delicious! We went to their Van Woustraat location which is in the very cool De Pijp area not too far from the Rijksmuseum and Oosterpark.

Food Hallen

If you're a foodie (I'm sorry I know some people hate that word, but hey, that's what I am), then I strongly advise you to check out Food Hallen. We didn't make it there on our first trip so it was top of my list of priorities for our second trip. Basically it's a very cool food hall, filled with lots of independent food stands that serve the most delicious food. I could have honestly spent an entire day gorging myself and trying every stall, but the ones we actually got to try were Shirkhan, a stand that served delicious curries and The Rough Kitchen, which serves straight up dirty BBQ food (there's no other way to describe it if I'm honest). Food Hallen would be a great place to go if you're with a group of people who all like different kinds of food, or if you just want to try a little bit of everything.

The Breakfast Club

You've probably heard of The Breakfast Club already as they have quite a few locations all over the world. We tried out their Wibaustraat location as it was just a few minutes walk from our hotel (Volkshotel, aka one of my favourite hotels ever) and it definitely lived up to all of the hype I'd heard about it. I had the Blueberry Cinnamon Pancakes with lemon mascarpone, bacon syrup, bacon crumble and they were truly scrumptious! I also found that even though The Breakfast Club is always super busy, their prices are still fairly reasonable which is nice because sometimes a fancy stack of pancakes like that could cost well over €15 which is just a little bit too ridiculous for me.

CT Coffee & Coconuts

Another fabulous place for breakfast, brunch or lunch in Amsterdam is Coffee & Coconuts. They do dinner as well, but since we were there early in the day, I can only vouch for their brunch menu. Like Bulls & Dogs, this is also in the De Pijp area, right near the Heineken Experience. We went here for a late breakfast/early lunch on our last day in Amsterdam. As I'd eaten my body weight in sweet treats and pancakes for the entire trip, I opted for a savory option which is usually very unlike me, but it was delicious! I got the New York Deli Sandwich which was bursting with flavour and was quite possibly one of the biggest sandwiches I've ever eaten. I also had to try their Coconut Coffee which was made up of two shots of espresso, coconut milk and agave and was so refreshing

The Butcher

If you're into burgers, then you definitely need to check out The Butcher if you're ever in Amsterdam. We went to their Albert Cuyp location, which is again in the De Pijp area (it's probably the best part of Amsterdam) but to be honest I'd recommend going to their Nine Streets restaurant instead, as the one we went to was tiny, and there was only about 8 seats. Small seating space aside, the food in The Butcher was super tasty and I loved the novelty of being able to see our burgers being cooked on the grill right in front of us. 

If you haven't seen my other blog posts about Amsterdam and are heading there soon, or even just thinking about visiting, make sure you check them out here for lots of tips on things to do and places to eat. I hope this post is helpful and if you're heading to Amsterdam soon, enjoy!

Even More Dam Good Food - Where To Eat In Amsterdam #2

Let's start something new, shall we? I love to read, sometimes if I'm seriously into a book I'll read it in a day, and I also love recommending the books that I read and really enjoy to other people, so I thought why not start a little book recommendations series on this blog? Most of the books I read can be grouped into the thriller genre I guess. I love a good page turner, something that has me dying to know how it ends. If you read Gone Girl, or Woman On The Train (which I think we all have at this stage) then you're sure to like the books I recommend, and if anything, some of the books I've read recently are actually a lot better than those two!

The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine - 9/10

I had to put this book first on the list because it's by far my most favourite book that I've read recently.  It's got a juicy story line, I mean who doesn't love reading about a good old gold digger trying to steal someone's husband, and it's got a plot twist that I never saw coming which is something that very rarely happens these days! Here's a bit about the book from Good Reads: "Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted. With shocking turns and dark secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fresh, juicy, and utterly addictive thriller from a diabolically imaginative talent."


The Woman In The Window by A.J Finn - 8/10

The Woman In The Window comes in at a close second in terms of suspense and twists. This book had me totally immersed in the story, so much so that I could clearly picture all of the characters and settings. Here's what Good Reads says about it: "Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems."


Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh - 7/10

The only reason I've given this book 7/10 is because I felt as if the ending was slightly rushed but I still very much enjoyed it and it kept me guessing for a good majority of the book. I've read Clare's other books, I Let You Go and I See You (both of which I'd recommend reading too) and I love her style of storytelling. Here's a little blurb from Good Reads: "The police say it was suicide. Anna says it was murder. They're both wrong. One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since. Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to question her parents’ deaths. But by digging up their past, she’ll put her future in danger. Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie…"


The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen  - 8/10

The Wife Between Us is one of those books that when the twist hits you, you actually need to double back a few pages to figure out what has happened and how you could have guessed it so wrong! If you loved Girl On The Train and Gone Girl then you'll definitely love this one. Here's a little summary from Good Reads: "A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love. When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement. You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves. You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her. You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships. Assume nothing."


Bring Me Back by B A Paris - 9/10

Like Clare Mackintosh, B A Paris is another author whose books I've read a few of. I think her book 'Behind Closed Doors' might just be one of the best books I've read in the past year and 'The Breakdown' is also another brilliant thriller that's full of suspense. Back to the book in question, 'Bring Me Back' is about a girl, Layla, who goes missing, her sister Ellen and her then boyfriend who is now engaged to her sister. I dare not say any more for fear of ruining the brilliant twist in this book, but again, it's another brilliant page turner. Here's a little more about it from Good Reads: "Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They’re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone—never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story. Ten years later Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, there’s something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him...even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her."

There we have it, five of the best books that I've read recently, I hope they're helpful recommendations if you are looking for something to read. Do let me know if you liked this post, and if it's something you'd like to see regularly and of course if you have any book recommendations of your own, please send them my way as I'm always looking for something new to read!

Panic buying outfits is usually a total no-no, right? Well for the last few events I've been to, panic buying an outfit has actually worked out well for me. For example on Tuesday I ran into Topshop on Grafton street a few hours before an event and found the fabulous polka dot co-ord that you can see me wearing above. You can get the skirt here, and the jacket here. This time, not only did panic buying result in an outfit I loved wearing, but it has also ignited a co-ord obsession that I fear will never die. When I got home from Dublin yesterday evening, I spent more time than I'd like to admit scouring the internet and falling in love with so many co-ords so I thought I'd share them with you today.

First up is the leopard print version of my polka dot co-ord from Topshop. I very nearly bought this one instead, and am still very tempted to buy it still as I just love leopard print, no matter how tacky some may think it is! The thing I love the most about all of these co-ords is that you can wear them together, or break them up into separate outfits and wear them with different things. So many outfit options and possibilities!





Next we have this gorgeous pink corduroy number from Missy Empire. Until about a year ago I would never dream of wearing an all pink outfit, but now it's actually one of my favourite colours to wear, especially this dusky, "millenial" pink shade that's so popular now. The skirt also comes in yellow and black colour too, it's just a shame they don't have the jackets too because that yellow set would be so fab.





Leopard print co-ords seem to be everywhere and it looks like different coloured leopard print from the usual brown shades are very popular and while it might take me a bit outside of my style comfort zone, I kind of love it! These sets from the Pretty Little Thing X Maya Jama collection are sure to make you stand out from the crowd anyway!

Honestly I could sit here forever writing all about the co-ords that I love and all of the reasons why I love them, but for those of you who came to this post purely just for some inspiration or an excuse to shop, here are all of the co-ords that I've spotted and fallen in love with so enjoy!



I think the reason why I love the denim co-ord so much over the other types of co-ords that are out there is because I can wear them all with my slogan t-shirts. It's a really simple and easy outfit to put together, but if you have a brightly coloured or printed co-ord, the outfit looks like so much more and I love that! I hope you enjoyed this post and do let me know which is your favourite co-ord.

It won't cost you any extra if you choose to buy something through these links, it just means that I get a small percentage of commission for finding these fab bits and sharing them with you. You get to shop till your hearts content, and I get some shmoney to help fund my own shopping addiction, it's a win win really.

Let's talk about nails shall we? I feel like it's been an age since my last beauty related post so I am very excited to chat all about CND's latest innovation, the Shellac Luxe system. For those of you that follow me on Instagram, or even Facebook, you'll know that I love the Vinylux polishes from CND, so when I was invited to go to London to try out the new Shellac Luxe system, I felt very lucky indeed. 

Just to be clear before we get started though, I am under no obligation to write this blog post at all, and I'm certainly not being paid to tell you about the new system. Yes, CND were incredibly kind to bring me to London, but I am sharing this post because the Shellac Luxe polishes and the innovations that have come with them got me all kinds of excited and I couldn't wait to tell you all about them! Maybe it's a little sad that nail products have me so excited, but who cares?!


From spending time yesterday with Jim Nordstrom, who co-founded CND along with his wife Linda it is clear that CND are a brand who really care about their products and their customers. So much research and testing goes into creating the best possible products and I think the Shellac Luxe system really shows that. They have created a new shellac that is much healthier on your natural nails, and is designed so that it only takes 60 seconds to remove it and no buffing or scraping is needed to remove any left over product because there isn't any!

As Marian Newman, a world renowned nail tech who has done pretty much anyone you could name's nails, explained to me, the Shellac Luxe polish is formulated so that there is more room within the formula than with a normal shellac for oils to reach the natural nail bed, meaning that the Shellac Luxe polish won't dry out your own natural nails at all, and if anything will keep them much stronger and protected whilst maintaining their health.


We got to try out the Shellac Luxe polishes in the gorgeous DryBy salon, somewhere I've wanted to visit for so long since one of my own favourite bloggers, Victoria from In The Frow, gets her nails done there religiously. There are 65 shades in total in the Shellac Luxe collection, and with me being so indecisive it definitely took me a while to settle on the shade I wanted but in the end I went for 'Charm', a gorgeous coral colour that makes me look hella tanned!

When having my nails done, it was pointed out that I have what's called "delamination" which is a fancy word to say that the top layer of my nails were peeling. Unfortunately I wasn't blessed with the strongest nails in the world, and I am definitely not the best at looking after them either. When I was chatting to Marian, I asked her what would be her number one tip for good nails and she said that applying a nail/cuticle oil at least once a day is essential. I actually have a bottle of the CND Solar Oil that I've shamefully only used once or twice so now I am going to make it my mission to apply it at least once a day and make a habit out of it. Strong, healthy nails, here I come!


The girls at DryBy did such a fabulous job on our nails, I love the shape of mine, they're so neat and chic and I think that this shade 'Charm' will be so popular for the summer, especially since it makes tanned skin just pop. I'm looking forward to seeing how well the Shellac Luxe polish lasts, since it's promised to give at least 14 days wear and I can be quite hard on my nails.

Since Shellac Luxe is a shellac/gel treatment, you will have to go to a salon to try it out, but what a good excuse to treat yourself to a little pampering. If you'd like to try the Vinylux polishes from CND which don't need to be cured using a UV lamp, then you can find them online on Millies.ie or in salons that stock CND.

I hope you enjoyed this little introduction to CND's newest product and of course if you've got any more questions about it just pop me a message on Facebook or Instagram and I'd be delighted to help. Thanks so much for reading!

Trying The New CND Shellac Luxe System - The Future Of Gel Polish

I'm looking forward to seeing how well the Shellac Luxe polish lasts, since it's promised to give at least 14 days wear and I can be quite hard on my nails.

Since Shellac Luxe is a shellac/gel treatment, you will have to go to a salon to try it out, but what a good excuse to treat yourself to a little pampering. If you'd like to try the Vinylux polishes from CND which don't need to be cured using a UV lamp, then you can find them online on Millies.ie or in salons that stock CND.

I hope you enjoyed this little introduction to CND's newest product and of course if you've got any more questions about it just pop me a message on Facebook or Instagram and I'd be delighted to help. Thanks so much for reading!

Spain is the country I have visited the most, but I haven't really explored it all that much, so during our holiday to Murcia this year, Dara and I decided to take a little road trip up to Valencia and stay in an AirBnb for two nights. I'd heard brilliant things about Valencia, in particular the architecture in the city was supposedly stunning so I was very excited to explore the city and take it all in. It turned out to be a brilliant way to break up a two week holiday which may have gotten a bit monotonous and we totally fell in love with Valencia so I wanted to share what we got up to with you all.


Bluebell Coffee Co.

If you're into good coffee and cute little coffee shops with a nice relaxed vibe, you need to check out Bluebell Coffee Co. It was only a few minutes walk from our AirBnb and our hosts recommended it so highly to us that it was the first place we checked out when we got to Valencia. Obviously it was rather hot, especially in the city, so we went for the cold brew and I'm not being dramatic when I say that it was one of the best cold brews I've ever had. We also shared a slice of banana bread which was delicious. Bluebell Coffee Co. also serve food, but unfortunately we got there just a little after they had finished up the food for the day, but it'd be a great place to go for lunch!


Dulce de Leche Boutique Ruzafa

Another cafe that was just a few minutes away from our AirBnb in the Ruzafa area of Valencia was the Dulce de Leche Boutique. When I was doing a little research for our trip, this was one of the first places I found and I instantly knew it'd be my kind of heaven. The cakes and pastries they make on site each day make your mouth water as soon as you walk through the door, and I kind of wish we'd gone back there a second time! One of the best things about Dulce de Leche was that it was very reasonably priced. Dara and I ordered a lot of food for brunch, I had a fruit tart, a dulce de leche filled croissant, a freshly squeezed orange juice and a cold brew and Dara had a bagel with eggs, bacon and avocado, a ham and cheese croissant, a coffee and a freshly squeezed orange juice and the whole thing only came to €20!  


The VLC Mezcalería

Okay, I promise this is the last food recommendation I'll give you, but I can't help the fact that one of my favourite things about travelling is trying lots of new places to eat! Yet again, this restaurant/tequila bar was only up the road from where we were staying, so the Ruzafa area of Valencia is definitely one to consider when looking for accommodation, and it's totally a hidden gem. I absolutely love Mexican food and I love a good strong margarita and to my delight I got both, of very good quality at the VLC Mezcalería. I wouldn't call it a restaurant per se, more of a Mexican tapas bar if that makes sense? We ordered the guacamole which was divine, and the queso and chorizo which was equally as delicious. It was exactly what we wanted though, and my (very strong) margarita was only a fiver! 


The City of Arts & Sciences

Without a doubt The City of Arts & Sciences were what I was most excited about visiting in Valencia. It's a collection of stunningly designed buildings all with very different purposes and honestly it's quite the sight to behold. There is a performing arts centre and theatre, a science museum, a building that houses an IMAX screen called the Hemisfèric, and the Oceanogràfic which is easily one of the best (and biggest) aquariums I've ever been to. If you're thinking of visiting the City of Arts & Sciences, I would advise you to give yourself the entire day to explore it all. We paid to go into the Science museum and the Oceanogràfic and it was €30 each for the combined ticket, but you don't have to pay to walk around and look at the buildings. We did really enjoy the Oceanogràfic despite the ticket prices being a little steep, it's a huge aquarium park and most of the tanks are actually underground so it's a nice break from the heat.

Ateneo Sky Bar Restaurant

If you want one of the best views in Valencia, the Ateneo Sky Bar is the place to go. We found it very hard to find, and Google maps was absolutely no use so asking someone on the street is your best bet. We did have to pay a €3 each entrance fee which I thought was a bit silly since we were buying drinks anyway but I guess they have to capitalise on the view they offer. The cocktails were very strong (I swear that's not just the lightweight in me talking) and the view of Plaça de l'Ajuntament was stunning, especially as the sun was setting.


Our AirBnb

We stayed in a gorgeous apartment in the Ruzafa area of Valencia that I found on AirBnb (which is becoming my favourite way to find accommodation). It was our first time sharing an AirBnb with the owners so I was a little nervous but Paula and Marino were so welcoming and friendly and had so many helpful tips and recommendations for the city. They also have two of the most beautiful cats I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. You can sign up to AirBnb using this link (just click anywhere on this sentence) if you'd like €30 off your first AirBnb stay.

As you can tell, we really loved Valencia and honestly I wish we'd had an extra day or two to explore more of the city, especially 'The River' which is now full of gorgeous parks. One of my biggest tips for the city is that the public transport is very cheap (only €1.50 for the bus, no matter how far in the city you are going), so instead of wasting time, and melting in the heat, I'd definitely make use of that.

I hope this post is helpful to any of you who are visiting Valencia soon, or thinking of taking a trip there. Thanks so much for reading!

Prague is one of those places where I think you'd honestly need about two weeks in order to explore it properly. Our trip was 6 days long and while we did manage to see a lot, I could definitely have spent a few more days there. The first thing I'm going to mention in this travel guide is that like Amsterdam (which you can read more about here), you can get a 'Prague Card', which you buy and it gives you either free entry, or a discounted ticket price to many of the main attractions in the city. Unlike the iAmsterdam card, the Prague card doesn't give you free transport, but you can buy a 72 hour transport card for just €12 so it's very inexpensive and the public transport is brilliant. Now those handy tips are out of the way, here are some of the things we saw and did in Prague that I'd highly recommend.


 1. The Spanish Synagogue 

I've put this first as it was honestly one of my most favourite things about Prague. I've never seen such a stunning building and there was a beautiful sense of peace in there, I could have sat there for hours. Inside the synagogue is lots of information about the Jewish history of Prague and it's definitely a place to put on your list. Entry was free with the Prague card and it wasn't too far from the centre of the city.

 2. Rent a pedalo

There are quite a few places along the Vltava river where you can rent a pedalo and see the city from a different perspective. We went around sunset and it was gorgeous, but there were a few times I thought I was definitely going to end up in the water! The only thing I will say is that we weren't given life jackets, something I didn't even think about until my very lovely (but slightly overprotective) Dad asked us about, so maybe try and find a company who take health and safety a little more serious.

 3. Climb The Astronomical Clock Tower

Well, I didn't climb it, I took the lift of course, but Dara did climb it and he said it wasn't too far. While we were in Prague, they were still carrying out work on the actual Astronomical Clock itself, so unfortunately we didn't get to see that, but we did get to go to the top of the tower and had a stunning few of the Old Town Square. Maybe not the best idea for anyone extremely scared of heights, but the view was so pretty that I ignored the slightly dizzy feeling it gave me.

 4. Visit Prague Zoo

When I posted about visiting the zoo in Prague on my Instagram story, I had a few angry messages from people, especially regarding the tigers but I'd just like to be clear that the tigers had a huge outdoor enclosure, we just got to see them when they were being fed indoors. Prague zoo is one of the nicest, most open and animal orientated zoo's I've been too and they carry out a lot of work conservation work which I'm all about. You'd definitely need an entire day to visit the zoo as it's very spread out but it was such a lovely day and well worth the trip out of the city.

 5. Explore Prague Castle

This was one of the places I was most excited to visit in Prague. Within Prague castle there is St. Victus Cathedral, St. George's Basilica, and Golden Lane, all steeped in history. Our Prague Card's allowed us entry to all three for free which was great. If nothing else, I would really recommend visiting the Cathedral, and even if you don't want to pay too look around, the ticket barriers aren't at the entrance doors so you can still walk in and have a look. We got a tram right up to the entrance to the castle instead of doing that very long, uphill walk, so always check out Google maps for public transport.

6. Admire The View From The Petřín Lookout Tower

I'm putting this tip in with a fair warning that on a windy day, the Petřín Lookout Tower gets pretty wobbly, which for someone like me who's terrified of heights, wasn't the most fun experience! The views definitely made up for the fear I was feeling though and climbing to the top is a great workout. Up on the same hill overlooking the city is also the The Štefánik Observatory where you can go and look out of their Carl Zeiss telescopes which I found fascinating. 

Like I said at the beginning of this post, there were definitely a few more other things I would have loved to see in Prague. Are there any you'd recommend that I've missed out from this post? If so, please do leave a comment below. If you haven't already read my food guide to Prague, you can check that out here. Thanks so much for reading!

If so, please do leave a comment below. If you haven't already read my food guide to Prague, you can check that out here. Thanks so much for reading!

One of my absolute favourite things about exploring new places is trying out lots of the local cafes and restaurants and having an excuse to eat ALL of the food. I actually tend to judge a city by the quality of the places there are to eat at, and Prague is one of those cities I'd happily go back to purely for the food alone. There were countless trendy cafes to eat in, with endless brunch options (which is my idea of heaven) and we found the food was a little bit cheaper compared to what you'd pay here in Ireland. Today I want to share with you some of the places that we ate in whilst in Prague as there are some real gems to be found. 

1. IF Cafe at Tylovo Square

This gorgeous cafe was just a few minutes walk from our Airbnb (which you can read more about here) and it came highly recommended by our host Gabriela. They make all of their cakes right in front of you and I could honestly have eaten here every single day of our trip. They had some delicious breakfast options, and I of course went for the avocado on toast which was so good. The coffee was excellent too, and I'd consider myself somewhat of a coffee snob (I know, how pretentious of me) and they had a lot of different coffee drinks available. There are a few IF Cafe's dotted around the city and I think they're definitely worth checking out.

2. The Trdelnik from Good Food

Whilst doing a bit of researching for our trip on Instagram, I came across a few pictures of these wonderful looking ice-cream dessert things and knew that that getting my hands on one would be my first mission once I got to Prague. A trdelnik is "made from rolled dough that is wrapped around a stick, then grilled and topped with sugar and walnut mix", but I really don't think that does it justice. We got our from Good Food, which is right near Charles Bridge and they had so many different flavours. Dara went for a brownie concoction and I had a delicious chocolate orange flavour. These trdelniks also have melted chocolate inside so it's almost like a giant, very filling cornetto and talking about them right now is making my mouth water!

 3. Cantina - Mexican Restaurant

Mexican food is without a doubt my absolute favourite and I could eat tacos and burritos until I burst. After we'd visited the Petřín Lookout Tower we were starving, so we had a quick look on Google maps to see what was closest and what looked good and we came across Cantina. I ordered chicken tacos and Dara had a burrito and both were delicious. We also had nachos to start but of course we inhaled those before I got a chance to take a photo. If you love Mexican food, and a good strong margaritta, Cantina is definitely one to check out.

4. Grosetto

Grosetto was another restaurant we found through Google maps. We'd had a long day of exploring the city and the pizza place we'd planned on going to had actually closed down. Grosetto definitely didn't disappoint, serving delicious authentic Italian pizza. They won my heart instantly by serving us bread, garlic butter and olive oil whilst we looked at the menu and grated parmesan was readily available, so what more could you want? Each of our pizzas were around €7 which I thought was very reasonable for such a big, good quality pizza.

 5. Venue

I've saved the best for last with this one. Venue was somewhere a few people on Instagram had recommended to me and I didn't think we'd get a chance to try it, but on our last day we had a few hours to kill and popped in for brunch. Venue seems to be extremely popular and almost always has a queue for tables, but we were lucky and got in just before the rush. They had so many dishes that I wanted to try but in the end I went for their chicken and waffles which came with a sweet and spicy syrup and I ordered their buttermilk pancakes under the pretence that I'd share them with Dara but of course I ate most of them. The staff were so lovely in Venue too which is worth noting because we found that people in Prague were a bit abrupt at times.

Wow, writing this post has made me extremely hungry! I hope you enjoyed reading about the places we ate at in Prague, and if you ever try any of them out, please do let me know. Thanks so much for reading!
