Close to Rathaus and a lovely local cafe with a great menu and cosy atmosphere. We loved this place so much it became our ‘local’ and we visited 3 times in 4 days. The chicken Wiener schnitzel was absolutely gorgeous!

This is the real deal. An old (a to be honest a little worn around the edges) Viennese cafe. Small tables with efficient but friendly (usually) staff. Authentic cafe offerings including great coffee and pastries. Often packed in the summer but worth the wait.

The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at
its finest: and this is what makes it popular with
locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small
