Pekařství Jan Mašek
Jan Mašek bakery in Smržovka is awesome. There are half a dozen others in nearby towns and villages too. We stumbled upon this one on the way to Desná along Hwy 14. The display of pastries and giant loaves - visible from the road through their floor-to-ceiling windows - entice drivers like me to stop. Vdolky, which are donut-like sweets and kolaches resembling round discs topped in marmalades are all part of the show. There are giant croissants and Czech style donuts just waiting to be plucked. Aside from the mouth-watering options, the coffees here are superb and extremely affordable. A memorable cappuccino came to 32 CZK (1.20€). This place is busy. Hungry day trippers and winter sports enthusiasts swoop in on cheap coffee, and sweet stuff around the clock. Queues here can also be as long as those behind ski tows, so be prepared to wait. This is about as good as it gets in the republic for fresh, flaky pastries and good hearty bread. #pastries #food #coffee #desserts
