During it’s 32 years of operation, there are a few new things at The Farmer’s Wife/Little Prague restaurant.
They’ve moved a couple times before settling in at 330 G St. They’ve added on a patio seating area and a bar.
What hasn’t changed is the quality of food and service. They still bake one-of-a-kind homemade breads and desserts.
“We have one customer who has been coming in daily for 17 years for a loaf of bread,” said Vaclav Burger, who runs the restaurant with his wife, Eva, and their two sons — Lukas and Vaclav, Jr. — and their daughter-in-law, Tai. “Now, he gets two loaves because his son is growing. We still charge him the same price when he first bought it, even though the price has gone up. It’s loyalty savings.”
Loyalty and understanding the needs of customers are what separates Little Prague from cookie-cutter eateries.
“One time, a lady walked in around 11 and asked for breakfast,” Vaclav said. “At some places it would be past breakfast, but I’ve got eggs. I can make breakfast. I am not a chain restaurant. I don’t need to be strict with the menu.”
In addition to good food, Little Prague also provides good entertainment.
“(To stay in business) you have to do the same quality food, but we hope to also get more music and live music,” he said.
There is some sort of music — live or karaoke — every day but Sunday at Little Prague.
Little Prague has several rooms that are available for banquets, receptions or business meetings. For more information, visit the website at www.littleprague.com or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
