On the table of Xpedit in Vienna

A few days before I depart for my holidays, I got to visit this Italian restaurant, called Xpedit, which is in the first district of Vienna, close to Schwedenplatz. While I was there, chatting with a dear friend of mine, I was thinking “hey this must be one of those local restaurants that all tourists are looking for”.

Do you know how many emails I get from people who are visiting Vienna, trying to find non touristic places to go and to eat? They all want to do something that is not considered touristic. So this restaurant is exactly the one. Off the beaten path and highly recommended.

We loved the food, and by saying that, I mean, we literally loved the food. We sat outside and spent about two hours. But then we had to leave because my friend had to get back to her work. But before that, we enjoyed everything on the table: insalata caprese with mozzarella di bufala, delicious risotto and yummy panna cotta.

kaffee WIEN

Not far away from where I live, there is a cafe called Kaffee von Sascha, which is run by an adorable couple from Ukraine. Kaffee von Sascha is not like the other cafes in Vienna. Sascha is passionate about making coffee for his guests while Nina makes the T-shirts that you will see hanging on the wall and they are both proud and happy to run a concept store that combines coffee & fashion.

Although I went there alone, I felt welcomed and comfortable. While I was chatting with both of them, I took these pictures to share with you on The Viennese Girl blog.

I left the Kaffee von Sascha with a T-shirt that portrays a cute dog and really can’t wait to wear it in my summer holidays in Greece. Don’t forget to visit them if you are in Vienna. I personally loved the table next to window and not only their coffee, but also their strawberry smoothie and all the other delicacies they treated me.

Instagrammers in Austria organize many instameets and instawalks now and then. One of those was the Instameet at Hotel Imperial Vienna. I would say that this was an imperial instameet, not just a simple one.

We gathered around 10.00 and had breakfast altogether. My friend Greg (who btw has origins from Greece and has great Instagram photos) gave a speech and talked about storytelling and its importance in today’s business. After that, Marie Kreuzer, who is the Sales& Social Media Manager of Starwood Hotels in Vienna, gave us a small tour inside the hotel and showed us the suite where once Madonna and Michael Jackson stayed during their stay in Vienna.

I took some pictures of the interior with my photo camera and one picture with my Samsung Galaxy S6 for my Instagram account which you can find here.

In general, joining an instameet in your city – whichever it might be – is a nice opportunity to make new friends, especially if you are new in town. The only condition is that you have to love taking pictures and being a creative spirit in order to be a good match.

I left with a piece of the Imperial cake and with the hope that I am going to win the champagne brunch in a raffle. The winner will be announced in about two weeks. Wish me luck, wish me luck…in general, I don’t drink alcohol but I love champagne.♥

I love Volksgarten Pavillon in Vienna for two personal reasons:

First reason: it reminds me of Samos.

Second reason: this is the place where my best friend in Vienna and I used to catch up during the summer.

Finally the weather is warm again in Vienna, and we can spend some time together sitting outside here. The decoration is a little bit strange. By saying strange, I mean that it has a touch of vintage and it looks a bit untended.

It’s not really a fancy place but it evokes a certain summer mood, summer feeling and a lot of carefreeness. Although it is located in the center of Vienna, near to Hofburg, it seems that it’s not discovered by tourists yet, but after this post I don’t know… 🙂

I loved the Coffee Pirates. Ideal meeting point in Vienna for a hot chocolate and slice of cake before the uni lesson starts or in between lessons for a pause. You will probably not see any tourist in Coffee Pirates, situated next to Altes AKH in 9th district, but rather young students who crowd the entrance and make it difficult for me to open the door to step outside. Rumors say that they make very nice coffee there, but since I never drink coffee, I am not able to know. You have to try and find out yourself. What I especially liked was the decoration and the coffee cups in what they serve their drinks. This place is very very cute, and here on The Viennese Girl blog, you know, we love all the cute things in life ♥
