Your reservation will be valid only if you come to pay in advance or sign a receipt for your credit card by 17.00 on Friday during the summer, and 15.00 on Friday during the winter.

Can you buy kosher foods for daily use in ordinary shops?

We regret to say that there are a very few stores with kosher foods in the entire country. You may come across some food with a kosher certificate by chance, but it is very rare and usually only one product can be found in regular store. The only reliable way to conveniently buy kosher food and baked goods is at King Solomon's Deli & Bakery or on the internet. A comprehensive selection of kosher foods, spirits and wine is available at www.kosherfoodonline.eu. Products can be ordered and then paid for upon delivery, and transport within Prague is free for purchases over 1,000 CZK. You can also pick up ordered foods or shop on the spot at the King Solomon's Deli & Bakery that is located at V Kolkovně 4, Prague 1 – next to the Spanish Synagogue – check number 9 on our map. Open from Sunday till Friday 12:00–19:00. Saturday closed.
