About us

Zlatý Kříž - 'Chlebíček' Heaven

Laůdky Zlatý kříž (Golden Cross Delicatessens) are home to the traditional gourmet open sandwich - chlebíček. We are proud to offer over 50 varieties, from classics to more exclusive creations, in typical 13cm and longer 18cm lengths. The Czech chlebíček is a world phenomenon - surviving over a century. Why do Czechs like it so much? It is a little edible work of art, visually appealing with its rich colors and textures. Its compact size makes it the perfect food on the go, a satiating quick lunch and the perfect addition to parties, celebrations and office bashes. It is tasty, filling and fun to eat!

The chlebíček is quite simply a delectable treat. The wide array of toppings is sure to please every taste.  

Our most popular choices include ham on potato salad, ham and cheese, Russian egg, hermelín (Czech cheese similar to camembert), crab, roast beef and various ham and cheese combinations.                                          

Visit one of our two locations to get an authentic taste of the world-renowned Czech delicacy - the chlebíček.

Zlatý kříž - A name given by history

Our main store is located in the charming Jungmann square (enter from Jungmannova street 34), adjacent to the picturesque gothic Church of St. Mary of the Snows and the enchantingly beautiful Franciscan Garden.

This historical crossroad, extending to the popular Wenceslas Square, forms the 'golden cross', after which the name and logo have been created.

So make a visit to these landmarks with a chlebíček in hand for a pleasant sightseeing opportunity. Or, enjoy a full lunch - a typical Czech schnitzel with potato salad and draught beer to refuel. We are sure to satisfy all tastes and time frames!

Zlatý kříž - Delicacies with a hundred year history

Mr. Zoufalý first opened the doors of his Delicatessen on Jungmann Square over a century ago, selling French gourmet foods and seasonal Czech delicacies. Since then, the ownership of the store changed several times, but the tradition of this store and its products has continued for over 100 years!

In the summer of 2016, we opened a brand new pub a stone's throw away form our deli store in Jungmannova Street. Vortex Pub boasts one of the longest taps in Prague - we have 28 unique beers on taps, from light to dark, stouts, ales, lagers and two fruit beers and serves a typical Czech menu. Vortex Pub is opened daily form 6pm to 1am at Jungmannova 14. So if you are in the neighborhood, come in, our staff speak English and frequently welcome in customers from around the world, so you will find the atmosphere both typically Czech AND international :)
