Secondly, to quote my friend who first took me to the Karlin Mecca of coffee, I 'was a coffee virgin when I first went to Šálek. And, like with any first time, I felt a bit awkward, a bit unsure. I lacked the moves, the style, the taste buds.' So Šálek can be compared to Gwen in Maggie’s Milkman, the horny housewife who showed Mal the tricks of the trade. Without Šálek there would be no blog.

Meanwhile the staff are plentiful and friendly, from barefooted waitresses, through baristas with tattooed feet to flat-capped baristas, they run the gamut of all hipster styles and fashions. Do I like Šálek? Difficult to say, of course like any first time it will have a special place in my heart and the coffee and the food are good and the cakes are to die for. But it’s a little hard-core for a non-hipster like me. I would say if you are comfortable with your hipstuality, then you will love Mūj Šálek Kávy. But if you are still in the hipster closet, some of the other alternatives might be a gentler introduction to the lifestyle.
