AGGYS Third-Wave Coffee

You’re here for both coffee and architecture: the downtown building whose ground floor Aggys hides in was designed in 1904 by Otto Wagner, Austria’s foremost architect. Originally built for a postal savings bank, it’s an important example of the pre-modern style and a pilgrimage site for design fans.

Today, a silver La Marzocco machine anchors what used to be cashier #21 and stylish art students socialize in the sun-filled hall fitted with glass tile floors and carpets (the building has been home to the University of Applied Arts since 2020). Exemplary repurposing of a historic space. Open weekdays only!
