Here, it’s all about the details: the coffee beans, which are ground on site, come from Gardelli (one of the most famous roasters in the city). And did we mention the delicious sugar croissants? Bonus: the café mascot is an adorable French bulldog.

A spacious mirrored room with a chandelier and rows of armchairs. If you can only choose one café in Vienna to stop in, this is it. On the menu: comforting coffee and an impressive array of pastries. The speciality: kaiserschmarrn, little Viennese pancake morsels with sugar or jam.

Yet another café in the République neighbourhood, but behind a typically Parisian façade hides one of the best filtered coffees in the capital. The must-taste: the horse-shaped shortbread cookies.
