Vienna coffee houses: Balthasar
If you’d like to have an excellent coffee in a stylish café, Balthasar is the place for you. Its spacious, minimalist interior offers five round tables at the windows, at which one can work or chat unbothered by the other guests. When they’re taken, no need to worry – there are still seats at the communal tables! And in the summer you can also sit outside or order a take-away coffee and go for a walk at the nearby Danube Canal. Don’t forget to try their pastries, though. They are finger-licking good!
Vienna coffee houses: Supersense
Supersense was opened as a small café in an analog concept store and has been expanding ever since. No wonder, as it stuns its visitors from the very moment they open the velvet curtain at the entrance. High ceilings with golden, floral ornaments and huge palace windows remind of the old times while the interior design is a mixture of the last few decades and the most modern style. It’s easy to notice the love to detail, especially when it comes to coffee – it’s served on a wooden plate, accompanied by a glass of water with a colorful bottom. For the hungry ones, there’s also a selection of breakfast and lunch options. Supersense’s atmosphere is truly exceptional and should be on any coffee lover’s list.
Vienna coffee houses: Burggasse 24
If there’s any ultimate Neubau place, it’s Burggasse 24. Every piece of furniture in this cozy café in the back of a second-hand shop is different, yet goes well with its artsy vibe and laid-back atmosphere. Here, you can sit on one of the colorful couches or chairs, sip on a great cup of coffee and look at the fireplace; or at yourself, as there are mirrors on every wall. The omnipresent abundance of plants completes the picture. Apart from coffee, breakfast and drinks are served. A true hygge experience in Vienna.
