Hi there, I would like to thanks everybody who give me some info here.
In fact I have understand one thing: these places seems not to be called "mleko bar".
I dont know why this person in Ostrava told me that, maybe it is the name tehy give in Ostrava?.
The thing is that I was walking around Prague and I found a place like I was looking for: very popular, with popular dishes and meals and not so expensive.
I eat in this place, where nobody spoke a world of english, but it was very nice, because even if people seems a little "cold" at first when you ask about dishes, they became little by little very kind and very sweet.
Anyway, the thing is that these places are called "Jídelna".
I would like to excuse me if I ask a bad question.
So I discovered differents Jídelna in the city.
I dont know if I can post here this information or it must posted by a person from Prague.
One more tile: thanks a lot to everybody

Hello,
really good one is Bílá Vrána and it is right in the center town, here is a link to their website http://www.barbilavrana.cz/content/kontakt.
Another one is Kumbál, that one is little further from the center, but still close by tram (20 minutes) or about 10 by subway. http://www.kumbal.cz/

They also make great milkshakes in Lucerna passage, which is next to Václavské Náměstí, there is little coffee at the end of the passage, close to the back entrance to big concert hall :)

Hope you have a great time,
Mary

Hello Joardo,

I am not sure why Lucy recommended you a regular pub but maybe there was a reason I didn´t get. Lokal Dlouhaaa is restaurant, not "mléčný bar" (milk bar) as we call it here. The only milk you can get in Lokal is either with your cofee or as a special beer drink which consists of foam only.

Mléčný bar is a place where you can get milk shakes, coffee, open sandwiches, cacao...it was a common thing here during communism. Nowadays, these places are either sweet shops or coffee places. You can try Ovocný Světozor (get milk shake and chlebíček = open sandwich). It is however already far from the former "milk bar" concept. But they serve very good things:) You will not be disappointed.

Enjoy!!

Hello Dana, thanks for your advice.
In fact last year I was in Latvia and there (like also in Lithuania, and Estonia) there are these little popular restaurants called "kafejnica" (pronounce something like "kafienitsa"), where you really eat with popular local people and you eat popular dishes.
Some days ago I was in Ostrava and I found this kind of little restaurants like "kafejnica", but a person there that speak english told me that these little popular restaurants are called "milk bar", and yes it comes from the communism time (like in the baltic countries).
This person in Ostrava told me that each "milk bar" has its own name and that is not write "milk bar". In the baltic countries you have the name of the place with the world "kafejnica" and in this way you know you are in a "kafejnica".
Im now in Olomouc and I found a really nice "milk bar", hidden in a kind of courtyard of a nice building in Olomouc downtown.
Like in Ostrava, here you have great popular dishes: any kind of meat with sauces, roasted potatoes, also an incredible choice of salads, etc... but no milk shakes or sweet things, it is a place just to lunch.
It is generally opened from 11h00 to 15h30
I would like to know some addresses in Prague of these "milk bar".
Thanks a lot
