A day in Vienna can hardly get off to a more classical start than with breakfast in a coffee house. Since 1880, Café Sperl has offered a traditional coffee house atmosphere, fresh rolls, soft-boiled eggs or ham and eggs not only in the early morning, but right through into the evening hours. Something similar applies to the Café Drechsler on Naschmarkt, renovated by Terence Conran. Even goulash and Sacher sausages can be ordered here in the early morning, perfect after being out all night. Café Berg in the vicinity of the Sigmund Freud Museum is a popular meeting point of the gay community, with its many breakfast options being offered for late risers until 3.00 pm.
Breakfast from around the world is available at the tea house Haas & Haas, right behind St. Stephen's Cathedral. More than 30 types of breakfast are on the menu here and all are served as they would be in their own country. The Chinese variant with dim sum comes to the table in a bamboo steamer on a banana leaf. An exclusive breakfast is offered at Orlando di Castello on Freyung. The coffee and French pastries are amongst the best in the city. A classic is the soft egg in a nut-toast bed.
The breakfast served in the Meierei im Stadtpark, which belongs to the Restaurant Steirereck, is sensational. Here, the egg is served with shaved goose liver, the Viennese "fork breakfast" comes with 'Beuschel' or goulash. Fine dining can also be enjoyed in the early morning at Meinl am Graben – including a champagne breakfast with oysters or the coveted beef tartar.
Breakfast is served at Hansen in the midst of a wonderful world of plants. The restaurant in the old stock exchange has a special breakfast menu. The scrambled egg varieties are a particular hit - sometimes truffled with salmon, sometimes with pumpkin seed oil. Particularly extensive is the breakfast menu at Point of Sale in the trendy quarter at Naschmarkt. The offer ranges from Italian to Indian breakfast, from Zen to Relax breakfast, daily until 3.00 pm, and until 5.00 pm on weekends and holidays. Muesli lovers get their money's worth at Corns n'Pops, where guests can make their own muesli from over 50 ingredients. Waffles, all sorts of bagels and a muesli brunch are also on the menu.
Every Sunday, Gerstner in Palais Todesco organizes the Art & Pleasure Brunch. Having breakfast here is a special experience in the magnificent setting beneath the frescos of famous historical painter Carl Rahl and to the sounds of waltzes. One of the best-known places for brunch in Vienna is the Wäscherei. The giant brunch buffet served here on weekends offers everything the heart desires.
An imperial ambience is provided by the Sunday brunch in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, where you can also stroll through the exhibitions. A breakfast as in imperial times awaits visitors at the Sisi buffet in the Café Gloriette at Schönbrunn Palace. Another tip is Sunday brunch in the Rote Bar in the Volkstheater.
