Blue is my favorite color and it puts me in a very good mood. Like good coffee does. And since colours matter a lot to me, Blue Bird makes everybody happy with a remarkable selection of beans they roast in house!
A successful brand, it has also opened in mainstream Gozsdu Gallery, but my favorite spot is the one opposite Rumbach Synagogue, on a street of the Jewish quarter that’s worth seeing. From Blue Bird’s windows you enjoy a prime view on the temple designed by Viennese Otto Wagner (just refurbished!). The furniture amuses me here, as the atmosphere pays homage to Frida Kalho’s paintings & the painter herself is depicted on one of the tables, while another one has the Gioconda.
Little birds enclose the lamps hanging from the ceiling, with ivy accompanying their cables and (painted) parrots running all around the walls. While writing at Blue Bird Roastery, sipping a delicious americano, I feel like I’m in a page of Gabriel García Márquez’s “One Hundred Years of Solitude” – and I love it! Blue Bird’s coffee doesn’t leave any aftertaste and it keeps the taste until the last sip, even when you drink it slowly.
The artsy mood continues outside, as the corner is shared with the painted wall dedicated to Sissi, the empress giving the name to the VII district. Plus it’s a few metres away from the ever-evolving Printa, making Rumbach Street a creative hub.
