Das Möbel Furniture Cafe

Both a cafe and a furniture shop, Das Möbel is a place whose wares serve two purposes: for guests to linger while sipping on a hot beverage and for sale. A hip, laptop-friendly venue serving good coffee and fresh cakes, which turns into an hot spot to catch up and enjoy some cocktails in the evenings. All the furniture on display is by young Austrian designers.

Cafes

Since 2011, the traditional Viennese coffee house culture has been regarded as part of the intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO. Legend has it Vienna's café culture had its beginning back in 1683 when a sack of coffee beans was left behind by the retreating Ottomans. In the late 19th and 20th centuries, coffee houses became the go-to places for intellectuals and creatives, including the likes of Sigmund Freud, Gustav Klimt, James Joyce, and Leon Trotsky. Traditional cafes entice visitors with a wide variety of coffee-based specialities, heavenly pastry creations, and a unique cosy and friendly: Austrian gemütlichkeit. If you are in the mood for something more modern, there are hundreds of third-wave coffee places in Vienna.
