Ok, let’s make that be a katie definition. The favorite meal of the day because it gives you an excuse to have pancakes and avo toast all at the same time and you do not need to get up early.
I feel like brunch has become a very popular thing in the recent years. Although making it at home is very fun and I have several recipes for this on my blog it also is super nice to go out and get it served. That’s why in this blog post I have written down my favorite places to go and have brunch in Vienna. They are in no particular order but they are all super good!
Garnisongasse 7, 1090 Wien
Cafe Telegraph is a very cute coffee shop pretty much in the heart of Vienna. You can find a very nice seating both, outside and inside which makes it perfect for any season! On their menu you can find traditional breakfasts from all over the world such as an english breakfast with baked beans and sausages but also such as Shakshuka. Plus, this restaurant is great for all avocado lovers because they even have a certain part of their menu dedicated to avocados. Their you can find fancy items such as avocado pancakes! Definitely worth going their and trying out their super tasty menu!
Praterstraße 19, 1020 Wien
Linke Wienzeile 22, 1060 Wien
Both of these are super cute! Why did I put them both in one bullet point? They are both part of the same group of restaurants and have pretty much the same breakfast menu! Ramasuri is located very close to the Danube canal while Cafe Drechsler is close to the famous Naschmarkt. What I like most from the menu? definitely the pancakes (so fluffy omg) and the avocado toast. It’s one of the best in town! And also, their service is so super friendly. Always a good choice going there!
Heinestraße 15, 1020 Wien
Babula is a pretty new hotel. But Babula also is breakfast heaven. Not only do they have such a nice service and interior but they have super tasty and pretty looking (!!) breakfast too. Their menu is creative but still has all the basics covered. So you can find beet root porridge but also French toast and eggs Benedict. Moreover, they have adorable looking drinks such as a pink latte. Just wow.
Motto am Fluss
Franz-Josefs-Kai 2 EG, 1010 Wien
This one is very popular among the Viennese. This café has one of the nicest location in Vienna. it is located on a ship ( which stands still al year) right on the Danube canal. Always booked out, so you need to make a reservation. They have a rather small breakfast menu but it’s delish! Just be aware, that on the weekend, when there are a lot of people, you might need to wait a little longer!
Währinger Str. 6-8, 1090 Wien
I feel like this is a rather secret spot. It is also pretty much in the heart of Vienna, and in my opinion the cutest cafe in Vienna. They only have very few seats, both inside and outdoors, which makes it super cute and special. I believe that they have THE BEST AVO TOAST in entire Vienna. I absolutely love it. Also their coffee and coffee art is amazing there. Plus, what’s super cute is that they always have freshly baked treats.
Uraniastraße 1, 1010 Wien
Klyo is a pretty popular restaurant in Vienna. It is located in the Urania, an observatory in the middle of Vienna, which is right next to the Danube river. You have a super nice view from there in in summer you can even enjoy your break on their terrace. This one, especially on Sundays, is always booked out so make sure to reserve a table ahead of time! My favourite breakfast item? The scrambled egg with the bread. This freshly toasted bread is a pure dream. You cannot get enough of that!
Salzgries 3, 1010 Wien
This spot is rather new in town but amazing. They serve all day breakfast, which is not your average breakfast menu. You can get pancakes with caramelised banana and bacon, Toasted sourdough with beet hummus and avocado or eggs Benedict all day long. And what’s a bonus there: the drinks are heavenly and so creative. Perfect for a nice brunch with your friends. Mae Aurel is also located in the heart of Vienna.
Ulrich & Erich
Sankt-Ulrichs-Platz 1, 1070 Wien
Neustiftgasse 27, 1070 Wien
These two coffees are also super duper cute. They are in the seventh district and right next to each other. They also are part of the same group. Very similar, but still a little bit different. I feel like the breakfast menu from Erich is a bit more extra and the one from Ulrich a bit more regular. But honestly, I love them both. The area around them also has super cute and nice shops, which are all a bit special. Definitely worth visiting.
Kutschkergasse 36, 1180 Wien
If you’d ask my mom what her favourite breakfast spot in Vienna was, shed probably tell you that it is Café Himmelblau. No wonder. I have never had a bad experience when going there. The service also is super friendly, the location super cute since it is located in the middle of a market in the 18th district, and the food is a dream. It is not a super fancy breakfast menu, more typical Viennese but you do not want anything else or more when going there. This, is ALWAYS a good choice and almost always completely fully booked – no matter if it is during the week or on the weekends. A super good tip!
Mariahilfer Str. 45 (im 1. Raimundhof), 1060 Wien
Lerchenfelder Str. 63, 1070 Wien
Operngasse 34, 1040 Wien
This place is very popular amongst the young. It serves super tasty and ice cold smoothie bowls with a side of amazing avocado toast, coffees and smoothies. You can, of course, enjoy them all day long either indoor or outdoors, or also to go! Their menu is completely vegan and organic but it also comes with a price. If you decide that you want to bring their breakfast home, you can also purchase their açai pads and make an açai bowl at home. Still, theirs is unbeatable I believe. The best açai bowl in Vienna!
Ausstellungsstraße 63, 1020 Wien
How to describe this best? Cute. Tasty. Super friendly. Karma food also serves food which is mostly organic, healthy, and vegetarian or vegan. Although you can find some items with meat products on their menu, the most part is plant based. But don’t think this is boring or anyhow not tasty. Because that would be a huge lie. Their food is AMAZING. So fresh and flavourful. And let me tell you, if you go there, you NEED to try their banana bread! Amazing. Plus, you get some of my favourite bars, Lini´s bites, there!
Albertinaplatz / Führichgasse 6, 1010 Wien
Landstraßer Hauptstraße 4, 1030 Wien
Kirchengasse 3, 1070 Wien
Last one on that list, but definitely not least, Joseph Brot. As the name says (Brot = bread), this actually is a bakery. They have lots of different and super tasty breads with all organic ingredients. You can get their bread and enjoy it at home or you can simply have breakfast there. This photo does not quite do it justice, but their breakfast is amazing. And I love that it is all organic and mostly regional.
These are my absolute favourite breakfast spots in town. I need to say, I have not tried every single one yet but I probably will, and add some to that list. I hope that this helps you the next time you wonder where to go and have brunch!
Bon appetit, and happy brunch!
