Brunch and breakfast in Vienna
There is scarcely a more classic way to begin a day in Vienna than with breakfast in a coffee house. Almost all coffee houses offer breakfast, from the classic Viennese version with rolls through to more sophisticated creations. Good examples are Café Museum or Café Drechsler on Naschmarkt. At the Dreschler, even goulash and Sacher sausages can be ordered in the early morning, perfect after a night on the tiles!
However, other restaurants offer the true breakfast experiences. Breakfast from around the world can be enjoyed at the Haas & Haas tea house right behind St. Stephen's Cathedral. More than 30 types of breakfast are on the menu here, all of which are served in the typical national style. The Chinese version with dim sum is served on a banana leaf in a steam basket. Numerous creative breakfast combinations can also be enjoyed at Café Français. Everything is on the menu here - from French Toast to warm, filled baguettes. The Joma specializes in egg dishes of every conceivable variety. A special tip here are the sophisticated cereals such as Bircher muesli and Amaranth porridge.
The breakfast served at Meierei im Stadtpark, which belongs to Restaurant Steirereck, is sensational. The eggs here are served with shaved goose liver, while the Viennese "brunch" includes veal lungs or goulash. Refined dining can also be enjoyed at Meinl am Graben in the early morning – including a champagne breakfast with oysters or the sought-after beef tartare.
At Hansen, diners sit surrounded by wonderful plants. The restaurant in the old stock exchange has a varied breakfast menu. Above all the variety of egg dishes is a hit - sometimes truffled with salmon, sometimes with pumpkin seed oil. The Motto am Fluss is also known for its great breakfast and lovely ambience. In addition to creative breakfast combinations and egg dishes, there's also healthy porridge and superfood granola.
Breakfast at the Ulrich is extensive. Assorted breads, omelets and smoothies provide variety here. Muesli lovers get their money’s worth at Corns n'Pops, where guests can make their own muesli from over 50 ingredients. Also on the menu are waffles, all sorts of bagels and a muesli brunch.
Brunch at the weekend
At Gerstners Landpartie, visitors enjoy a Sunday brunch in the romantic ambiance of Gerstners Landhaus – with culinary delicacies such as Tafelspitzsulz and Landhaus salad with runner beans (11.00 am - 2.00 pm). The Gerstner Café-Restaurant also offers brunch in the magnificent rooms of Palais Todesco every Sunday from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm. All sorts of delicacies are served with a view of the Vienna State Opera.
The Sunday brunch at the Mill is unbeatable. The range of dishes that are served at the buffet here is almost unsurpassable. In summer, the whole affair is laid out in one the prettiest dining gardens in Vienna. A breakfast as in the days of the emperor awaits visitors at the Sisi buffet in Café Gloriette at Schönbrunn Palace (Su 9.00 am - 11.30 am).
During the week, the Health Kitchen serves a healthy breakfast with regional and mostly organic ingredients; a brunch buffet is laid out here on Sundays from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. According to the low-carb concept, there's a variety of spreads, egg dishes, soups, rolls and much more – but there's no need to go without granola, muesli and wholemeal bread (home-made).
The "Flying Breakfast" at the Labstelle is only held on Saturdays: The kitchen serves small dishes continuously from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm - for a flat-rate price. An à la carte brunch is served at Brickmakers on Saturdays and Sundays from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm. Apart from eggs Benedict, eggs Florentine, pancakes, home-made sausages with baked beans and cold brew coffee, the typical house specialties served at brunch also include smoked BBQ treats such as pulled pork sandwich and ribs.
