13 of your favourite breakfast spots in Vienna

We asked the people of Vienna about their favourite breakfast spots in the city and these 13 places made the list.

Ulrich – Best Breakfast

MON–THU: 7:30am–1am
SAT, SUN & public holidays: 9am–1am


Breakfast served
MON–FRI: 7:30am–11.45am
SAT–SUN & public holidays: 9am–3pm

Ulrich is that rare kind of café that ticks all boxes – they make a damn fine coffee, the atmosphere is cosy, and they serve up a breakfast that will make you think twice about asking for breakfast in bed for your next birthday.

Ulrich is always popping. It’s loud, packed, full of energy, and most importantly full of delicious food! This spot is a definite go-to for any well-travelled hipster whose favourite thing to do is enjoy trendy brunches in new cities.

Erich – Best Breakfast

Breakfast served
MON–SUN: 9am–4pm

Erich, the brother of the café, Ulrich, located just around the corner, claims to serve up breakfast for individuals. This is due to the flexibility of the breakfast menu.

Rather than set menus, Erich encourages you to create your own breakfast combo’. From a vegan or egg base, you build your breakfast by adding extras like smoked salmon, mini sausages, bacon, mushrooms, chorizo or vegetarian options.

Set alongside the Donaukanal, Motto am Fluss has a view and a setting fit for an inspiring, yet lazy, start to the day. The variety of breakfasts include some international favourites, with original name and twist.

The All Day Breakfast Sandwich is all your breakfast food favourites packed in a bun (avocado, bacon and scrambled eggs), topped with a scrumptious Habanero mayonnaise. They also serve up some decent detox smoothies if you turn up after a heavy night out.

The Guesthouse – Best Breakfast

Breakfast served
Daily: 6:30am–6pm

Some hail this as the place for THE best place in Vienna for breakfast all day long. We don’t know about that, but we will confirm that the breakfast here is something special. The in-house bakery provides a heavenly, homey smell in this place which blends classic Vienna with clean-cut modernity.

Here, a vast array of breakfast options can be feasted on. The breakfast packages are not that original, but they’re full of complex flavours – a result of the trained chefs at work on them.

Das Augustin – Best Breakfast

MON–DO: 5pm–12:30am
FRI: 5pm- 1am
SAT: 9am -1 am
SUN: 9am - 11pm


Breakfast served
SAT, SUN & public holidays: 9am–5.30pm

Nestled amidst the exotic supermarkets and graffiti is “Das Augustin”, a breakfast haven of yumminess. The breakfast menu is simple but creative. It’s comprised of the classic ingredients in a Vienna breakfast: muesli, ham, and cheese, but all the breakfasts have their own original homemade twists.

Like the Scandinavian-inspired breakfast, made up of Norwegian salmon, goat cheese, and ruccola with a lemon dressing, for example. The more exotic breakfasts are Italian and Turkish inspired, or you can hop into some good old-fashioned pancakes. Everything is fresh, and all the breakfasts come as mini works of art.

Having Breakfast in the beautiful (winter) garden at Hildebrandt Café is pure bliss! From the moment you step in, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and warm pastries will transport you to breakfast heaven. With their delectable menu options and cosy atmosphere, starting your day there is an absolute delight.

SAT: 8am–6pm

Joseph Brot’s bistro on Landstraße offers a great breakfast and brunch menu that features a selection of fresh, original and visually delightful, organic, and regional creations. Seasonal changes keep things exciting – at the moment “The Healthy” will treat you with a slice of whole-wheat bread garnished with salmon, avocado cream, poached eggs, tomato, and cottage cheese plus an accompanying chia pudding.

You can also opt for a classic Semmel and Kipferl with butter and jam version, try your way through the bread and pastries on offer, or sip on some healthy drinks, or a cup of quality coffee.


Palais Hansen Kempinski – Best Breakfast

Breakfast served
MON–FRI: 6:30am–10:30am
SAT–SUN: 7am–2pm

Hotel Kempinski is one of those names you just know. Apparently, the hotel chain is the oldest luxury hotel group in Europe, but they sure keep up with today’s times with their wonderful breakfast.

The luxurious breakfast offers everything a breakfast-lovers hungry heart could desire. From eggs in any style you could wish for (including eggs benedict) to a spread including fish, meats, dried fruits, freshly squeezed fruit juices, breads, cheeses, more and more… and more.


Marks – Best Breakfast

Breakfast served
TUE-SUN: All day

When visiting Marks place for a meal, the genuinely familiar and friendly feeling of the place is instantly relaxing. The perfect tranquillizer prescribed for a Sunday morning breakfast.

The selections goes from a vegan breakfast boasting a pumpkin smoothie to a ‘Hangover’ (beans, eggs, bacon, etc.) or ‘Nordic special’ (salmon, bagel, etc.) each comprised of breakfast foods that fit their name.


Haas & Haas – Best Breakfast

MON–SAT: 8am–8pm
SUN & public holidays: 9am–6pm


Breakfast served
MON–SAT: from 8am
SUN: from 9am

Tea house Haas & Haas is one of the few remaining Viennese institutions which everybody who’s lived in the city long enough knows of. It’s difficult to choose between their many breakfast variations, however, we suggest you just close your eyes and point to a country on the map, and they’ll most probably have the traditional breakfast dish from that country on their menu.

While the hearty English breakfast is the most popular here, the Chinese breakfast stands out with its dumplings and noodles. And while coffee is, of course, on the menu, we highly suggest you order the tea that best accompanies your breakfast.

Café Ansari – Best Breakfast

MON–SAT: 8am–11:30pm
SUN: 9am–3pm


Breakfast served
MON-SAT: 8am–2pm
SUN: 9am-2pm

This place has fans aplenty, far and wide around the city. It’s especially good looking, with its modern take on a Viennese coffee-house, and the food is, quite simply, exquisite. Run by a couple hailing from Georgia and Lebanon, the menu lives somewhere in between Vienna and the Orient, with a little bit of Russia thrown in there.

Our three favourite breakfasts there are the Georgian breakfast that involves a very tasty, and very cheesy, Khachapuri, a ‘Variation von Blinis’ (a range of Blinis) served with sour cream, butter, caviar, salmon and other garnishes, and the “Orientalisches Frühstück “(the Oriental breakfast).
