Vienna Würstelstand's says

There’s nothing better than spending a cold winter’s morning in a café serving up a warm atmosphere and a warm breakfast. We’ve found 5 places around Vienna that will warm you up – inside and out.

Ulrich is that rare kind of café that ticks both boxes – they make a damn fine coffee and serve up a breakfast that will make you think twice about asking for breakfast in bed for your next birthday. You could almost mistake yourself for being in Sydney if you resist looking out on the scenic cobblestone courtyard and baroque church sitting outside the café’s windows. Funny about that, as it was the cafés of Australia and New Zealand that inspired Gerald with Ulrich’s design. In the way of warm breakfasts, they serve up a hearty pan of bacon and eggs, fluffy pancakes with fruit and a raft of tasty omelettes. For our full review of Ulrich, see here.

Breakfast served
MON–FRI: 8am–12am
SAT–SUN & public holidays: 9am–3pm

Opening times
TUE–FRI: 9:30am–12am
SAT: 9am–12am
SUN: 9:30am–11pm
MON: 11:30am–12am

As one of the cafés framing the lively Yppenplatz, this is an optimal end station to warm up after an early morning of wandering through the Brunnenmarkt buying your cheap capsicums and Turkish coffee. This area has the easy-going, cosmopolitan charm that’s hard to find in Vienna, but seems to emanate from this small piazza of the 16th district. When trying to select our favourite warm breakfast here, we shake like a virgin boy discovering porn and the internet for the first time. the French toast, the porridge, the oriental Rasouli Frühstück, or the Pan breakfast in which you’ll find the rare combination of pancakes and baked beans on the same plate: it will all get you to where you want to go!

Breakfast served
TUE–FRI: 9:30am–2:30pm
SAT: 9am–3:30pm
Sun & public holidays: 9:30am–3:30pm

Opening times

SAT–SUN (and public holidays): 8am–6pm

Well, for the complete lowdown on what we dubbed as the sexiest bakery in Vienna, check out our full review here. However, this hipster hangout bakery has made it into the warm breakfast hall of fame for its magnificent “The New ‘Prince Harry Loves New York’ breakfast”, with scrumptious bacon, tiny-winy sausages, beef tartare and sourdough bread. Value for quality ingredients is obvious here. Their omelettes are also worth lining up for (there can sometimes be a wait for a table, so we do recommend reserving). The open, airy setting will echo your screams of delight.

Breakfast served: All day

Breakfast Originality:

This place has retro style coming out of its old hairy ear holes. From the outside, it looks insignificant; even closed. However, inside one of the coolest well-kept secrets of Vienna serves up coffee and food from a quality kitchen. Their breakfast is no exception. We’ve never felt warmer than when we gobbled up one of their many omelettes on the menu (vegan option included) under the low wood-panelled roof, tacky chandeliers, and vintage lamps of the Brilliant Brillantengrund café. It almost feels like a family affair here. The service is good-looking and friendly – Bonus! Unlike the many cafés popping up around town and filling themselves with old furniture, this place is actually vintage – and it’s the hippest grandma you’ll ever meet.

Breakfast served
MON–FRI: 7:30am–midday
SAT–SUN: 9am–4pm
