If you're ever in Prague or any town in the Czech Republic you'll see plenty of Cukrárnas - little cafes selling cakes, sweets, ice cream and all things sugary and sweet ('cukr' is Czech for sugar). My favourite things to look out for are 'karamel' sundaes made with vanilla ice-cream, drizzled with caramel sauce and topped with hazelnuts and whipped cream and medovník, a sweet layered honey cake which is surprisingly light. Lots of Cukrárnas are wonderfully retro with faded signs and old fashioned lino but during my trip to Prague this year I spotted Fox & Deer - a cute and modern version near Dejvicka.
