Rakvička

A piece of rakvi?ka from Lokál in Prague, Czech Republic.

What: A common dessert in Prague’s cafes, rakvička is a sweet, hollow biscuit in an oblong shape—a “little coffin,” as the name translates (another example of the Czechs’ wonderfully morbid sense of humor; see also: utopenci, or “drowned men”). It’s usually topped with whipped cream, and is great with coffee.  

Where: Our little coffin comes from Lokál (two locations including Dlouhá 33, Praha 1), a restaurant that places a premium on serving homemade, high-quality Czech cuisine.

When: Mon-Fri, 11am-1am; Sat, noon-1am; Sun, noon-10pm

Order: One rakvička (39 CZK), a sweet, crunchy cookie in a pile of whipped cream. We liked this with a tall, cream-topped Vienna coffee (Vídeňská kava)—a great way to close out a wonderful Czech feast (see also: tatarák, španělský ptáček, vepřo-knedlo-zelo).

Alternatively: Many cafes, including the historic Kavárna Slavia (Smetanovo nábřeží 1012/2, Praha 1, map), offer these on their dessert menus. We also saw it in bakeries around town, such as Michelské pekárny (multiple locations including Karmelitská 376/20, Malá Strana, map).
