Café Espresso – For a 50’s café vibe

Café Espresso is more than a mere café. The clientele have uses for this space that go beyond just drinking coffee. One of the best loved cafés in the über-trendy 7th district, located on Burggasse, one of the best streets in Vienna, Espresso is generally filled with a nouveau hipster crowd of students and young professionals, and the vibe inside is buzzing. Here you can find not only good coffee but a range of good food too, fro snacks to meals.

It is beloved amongst Viennese for breakfast/brunch, or that indefinable kind of lunchtime breakfast fusion in which you order cheeses, meats, jams and spreads along with bread and croissants. For a proper winter warmer – you might need propping up at times during the darker months – there are popular dishes such as goulash, which is always good quality.

Espresso was renovated into its current format in 2004, and is decorated in 50’s style, with sky blue walls and burgundy leather upholstery. Even the coffee machine itself is faithful to the design principle, and the attention to detail certainly adds to its charm and atmosphere. It avoids being kitsch while authentically nailing the retro look. The outside seating area is particularly charming in spring. Espresso should certainly be one of the first places on your list if you’re after a lazy brunch.
