A new interpretation of the Viennese “Gemütlichkeit”
In the last few years, the Viennese have developed into true brunch fans. Because of this, an increasing number of cafés and restaurants now offer an extensive brunch buffet, above all at weekends and on public holidays. A great and relaxed way to start the day and you can easily spend several hours enjoying your brunch. Today we would like to present our favourite locations for a perfect brunch in Vienna.
Salzberg – One of Vienna’s oldest brunch locations
The classic amongst the Viennese brunch restaurants is the Salzberg in Vienna’s sixth district. It is located in a side street, not far from the well-known shopping street, Mariahilfer Straße, and, in addition to a generous interior, it also has a small garden where you can sit and enjoy your food. Brunch is served here every Saturday, Sunday and on public holidays from 9am to 4pm. You can choose from a wide range of dishes – from various types of bread, cheese, ham, cereals, fruit and vegetables to warm dishes like porridge, boiled eggs, waffles and much more – everything to satisfy the desires of breakfast fans.
