Small place, awesome staff, premium quality direct trade coffee from best roasteries in the world. Staff favorite. 

Dancing Shiva Superfoods

Great place to go if you're looking for a laid back place that serves super healthy organic vegetarian dishes. 

Cafe Jelinek

Opened in 1910 and dripping with Viennese coffeehouse charm. Walk there from the hostel in about 15 minutes.

Gerstner K. u. K. Hofzuckerbäcker

A must visit when in Vienna. Delicious cakes (Klimt Torte) and pastries, exquisite interior and awesome location. 

Café Central

One of the most popular coffee houses in Vienna, often with a queue out the door, but you shouldn't have to wait too long. Amazing Apple Strudel and some of the best chocolate cake in Vienna :). A pianist plays daily from 5pm until closing.


A hidden oasis close to the heart of the city, with a very mixed crowd, from aging intellectuals to young locals to un- tourists. Something for everyone, from carnivores to vegetarians, from breakfast (served until 3pm) to dinner. Prices are low, portions are large, food is simple but good. 


Ulrich is a great place to have breakfast/brunch. Very good coffee, many breakfast choices and very good atmosphere. 

POC Cafe "People on Caffeine"

Small place but equipped with one of the best barista in town. Their cake selection its also very impressive. A must visit if you are near the university campus area.

Cafe - Neko Vienna Cats

After three years of negotiations with city officials over hygiene issues, Vienna, Austria opened its first cat cafe last Friday. 'Cafe Neko', "Neko" meaning cat in Japanese, was opened by Vienna resident Takako Ishimitsu from Japan. Customers can stroke and interact with their five feline hosts while enjoying coffee or reading a magazine.


One of the best coffee places in town, in the middle of a very busy metro/tram station. Awesome good coffee close to University of Vienna, City hall, and Votiv church. Few places to sit but its mostly takeaway. 


Very close to the hostel. Patricks (staff) favorite neighboorhood Cafe. Really friendly barista, tasty cakes and a lot of bio products that you can buy fresh from local farms.  Coffee never dissapoints. 


Cool hip place which is always full. Really nice peanut cake, brownies and refreshing drinks. Not far from hostel. 

Café Downstairs

Classic "student's" bar near Mariahilferstrasse and Museumsquartier, cocktail of the week is usually great value, can be quite packed at times but you can have beers in a pub directly upstairs of Downstairs
