Brunch is most likely the loveliest part of a well spend weekend. It includes sleeping in after a long week, feeling the sunshine waking you up and getting together with your best friends for some well deserved quality time. And while we have already shown you some of our most favorite places in Vienna, like the Bank Brasserie & Bar, the Hotel Grand Ferdinand or Lilette’s, we wanted to give you a guide for a lovely Sunday’s Brunch in Vienna. No matter if you live in Vienna or visit the capital, do not miss out on the wonderful spots the city has to offer.
where orient meets okzident
Located at Vienna’s Brunnenmarkt close to the Danube channel you will find Café Ansari, a beautifully decorated restaurant with an amazing brunch selection on the menu. I found it by accident, as it is right next to Mochie, a japanese restaurant where Des, Jen and me have meetings from time to time when they are in town (which includes obsessing over their incredible Chocolate Mochie Balls which is usually the topic during the meeting).
I am obsessed with the Oriental Breakfast at Café Ansari. And I am truly honest when I say, that this is the only place so far where I love the Humus. Although next time I will be there, I have to try the Russian Breakfast because it also sounds incredibly delicious.
Dachboden at 25hours Hotel Vienna
Brunch above Vienna’s rooftops
If you like to have a little view over Vienna’s old town while brunching with your friends, the Dachboden (attic) of Vienna’s 25hours Hotel is the ideal spot for you. While it turns into a bar and occasional club at night, Viennese people love to spend their Sundays above the rooftops of their city while enjoying a Café Latte and their favorites of the international menu.
Brunch in the heart of Vienna
Graben 30 is one of the newest places in Vienna, right in the center of Vienna between the St. Stephan Cathedral and the Golden Quarter. The interior design focuses on a mix of contemporary elements with timeless furniture and stunning pieces, like the big clock in the Lounge. The restaurant faces Graben, one of Vienna’s old town shopping streets where you can find your next Birkin Bag or Burberry Trench. Before that you might enjoy Graben 30’s brunch selection in their warm and cozy atmosphere.
Deli am Naschmarkt
Brunch from Turkey around the world and back
Vienna’s Naschmarkt. This place is within it’s own universe. And while it is representative for Vienna like nothing else it is the direct opposite to the opulent houses it is surrounded by. Here you can find everything, from Turkish sweets over fresh seafood to beautiful antiques (on the flea market on Saturday). As diverse you will find the little stores you will also find the restaurants. No matter what type of food you are looking for, I am positive you can find a fitting restaurant here.
For example turkish food at Deli am Naschmarkt. They offer a small but filling brunch with fresh vegetables, cheese and turkish mokka while watching the pedestrians strolling from place to place.
Le Brunch, le Café au laît et l’amour bien sûr
As lovely as Vienna is, sometimes all you want is to sit on the sidewalk of a Parisian café and simply feel alive. One way to do so is to book a direct flight to the city of light. The other is to take the tram to Café Français. While sitting outside you can enjoy the view over the Votiv Church and the imperial building of Vienna’s University. Your waiter (with a charming french accent) will bring you your french toast and Café au laît and you will wonder why you don’t come here every other day of the week.
Café Little Britain
Keep Calm and Brunch
There is rarely a country that resembles cute interior with little flower cups, cozy sofas and grandmother’s teapot like Britain. And this is exactly the feeling you will have once you enter Café Little Britain. Like visiting your grandparents in the countryside. When you only have to make yourself comfortable, listen to your grandfather’s stories and eating your grandmother’s cakes. If you love scones as much as I do you will need to try this place out. I love coming here for a little break and just focus on myself. I always need these little breaks from “life” to get back with new inspiration, a clear mind and the willpower to achieve things. But before that, sit back and have a cup of tea.
Crêpes from Heaven
Although I have already suggested you a french place, there is rarely something more french than crêpes. These delicious pancakes from heaven can be an excuse for every diet, lift you up when you are down or make sure that you will never be down. They may not solve problems but they for sure make you remember the sweet things in life. Recently Crepos has opened in Vienna mainly serving Crêpes and omelettes.
