Whether a quick espresso at the bar or an indulgent breakfast, everyone will be happy here. Hearty or sweet, vegan and vegetarian - no problem at all. The elegant setting attracts the "who's who" as well as tourists and Viennese alike.

Tuchlauben 4–6, 1010 Vienna, Austria

Steirereck stands for pure excellence. No wonder, then, that the establishment was once again voted the best restaurant in the city. The exclusive, luxurious breakfast at the Meierei is equally impressive. Exquisite ingredients, handled with perfection, from ostrich egg dishes to Beuscherl (offal ragout).

Am Heumarkt 2a/Im Stadtpark, 1030 Vienna, Austria

The secret recipe of the breads: high quality sourdough and a lot of time. Each loaf is formed by hand. Directly from the bakery in the Waldviertel, they arrive fresh at the store and are perfectly staged behind the counter.

Naglergasse 9, 1010 Wien, Austria

Customers visit the quality bakery not only for the famous baked goods. The bistro offer is perfect for coffee or lunch break, but also for the big hunger. Handmade quality is the trademark, also for the food on site.

Führichgasse 6, 1010 Vienna, Austria

Joseph has ignited the hype for good bread! The queue is usually long, because the baked goods are coveted hot (often still warm pastries). The bread has cult status and is represented in countless gastronomic establishments. Best-selling breakfast: "Empress" and "Joseph".

Landstraßer Hauptstraße 4, 1030 Vienna, Austria

As soon as you enter the restaurant, you notice the perfect coordination of every detail. The quality is evident not only in the high-quality ingredients, but also in the appealing design. In addition, there are some sales shelves with fancy products to browse.

Obkirchergasse 37-39/1, 1190 Vienna, Austria

This branch fits seamlessly into the list of popular Joseph bakeries. 100% organic baked goods, made exclusively from Austrian grain. The appealing counter presents the breads in the background and the sweet treats as eye-catchers.

Währinger Straße 106, 1180 Vienna, Austria

Joseph Brot – which now has nine locations – is a bread mecca and it's hard to imagine the market without it. Connoisseurs can be seen through the store window, and many also use the restaurant as a workspace. Somewhat hidden in a side street of Mariahilfer Strasse, but always busy.

Kirchengasse 3, 1070 Wien, Austria

Behind the Parémi bakery are two names: Patricia and Rémi. Both learned their boulangerie-pâtisserie craft in France and now implement it perfectly in Vienna. Bread, pastries and confectionery of all kinds are baked fresh every day.

Bäckerstraße 10, 1010 Vienna, Austria

The family business with a big heart (and expertise!) for coffee has three locations in the city of Mozart. At the Rupertinum, you can enjoy authentic coffee specialties in an elegant, atmospheric setting. Also top: the breakfast, cakes, loaves and tarts.

Wiener-Philharmoniker-Gasse 9, 5020 Salzburg, Austria

The barista at the counter is undoubtedly a coffee expert. The knowledge in processing the coffee beans (wild coffee from roaster Leonhard Wild) is impressive. The quality was previously verified in the Balthasar Lab - workshops are also offered here.

Praterstraße 38, 1020 Vienna, Austria
Classic Coffeehouse

Legendary and unique: the traditional café on the quay has been a living room for generations. Hostess Evelyn Brandstätter and her team serve coffee on the sun terrace or indoors in the classic coffee house ambience. A must in summer: the apricot dumplings.

Schwarzstraße 3, 5020 Salzburg, Austria

The "Pirates" are synonymous with first-class quality and place particular emphasis on organically grown and aromatically unique specialty coffee. Whether at the bar or in the roastery, true professionals work here with a taste for pleasure and a gastronomic spirit.

Spitalgasse 17, 1090 Vienna, Austria

The coffee culture of times past lives on in the premises of the former Naber branch. The cafetière has found a home here where it shines. Perfect coffee specialities accompanied by outstanding toasts like the popular "Karl Heinz Toast".

Wipplingerstraße 25, 1010 Vienna, Austria

Classy and stylish down to the last detail, even the coffee-to-go cup is an eye-catcher. A place that embodies quality through and through; exclusive produce, furniture and decorative elements have a line. A place for the discerning palate with an "urban appetite".

Dominikanerbastei 10, 1010 Vienna, Austria

At Motto Brot you can experience the art of baking at its best: sourdough breads, the finest patisserie and pastries in perfect perfection. The bakery store is a real gem and the charming Schanigarten invites you to some cosy hours eating breakfast.

Mariahilfer Straße 71a, 1060 Vienna, Austria

Good bread starts with the raw materials. Quality runs through everything at Öfferl – from the high-quality products to the company's own coffee. Anyone who has tried the baked goods once will return here again and again. In the 1st district there is also a bistro and breakfast business.

Wollzeile 31, 1010 Vienna, Austria

The gastronomic spectrum ranges from shakshuka to "Grandma Ströck's breakfast roll" - pastry specialties from patissier Pierre Reboul (the croissant!) are, of course, not to be missed. The house coffee (Central America) complements the breakfast selection with its mild acidity.

Burggasse 52–54, 1070 Vienna, Austria

The benchmark for the restaurant, which is often referred to in a derogatory manner as a “bakery café”, is set with the sustainable all-day gourmet spot where nothing is possible without a reservation. The low-acid “Viennese coffee” (from Old Vienna roaster Oliver Goetz) tastes wonderful with organic “Ei Benedict” and co.

Landstraßer Hauptstraße 82, 1030 Vienna, Austria

In the small, fine patisserie café on Müllnerhügel, the coffee comes from a Salzburg roastery. In addition, there are sweet works of art that melt in your mouth - from wonderful chocolates in geometric shapes to delicate macarons, and Danishes to fruit tartlettes.

Müllner Hauptstraße 28, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
