Albertov school canteen

As the name may slightly suggest, this school canteen is located in the Albertov area together with multiple faculties of Charles University.

The main traits of this dining hall are large portions and low prices, so it’s no wonder that the canteen is popular. But because it’s popular, you will usually have to wait long queues during lunch hours.
