Balthasar Coffee Bar

Located across the Danube Canal in the up-and-coming Leopoldstadt (District 2), Balthasar is a high-turnover coffee shop, drawing the local community: elderly locals with the physical paper, young families with baby strollers, a young and chic crowd armed with MacBook Pros. The coffee is distinctly new-wave and flavorful; the pastry offerings are more imaginative than elsewhere the cheesecake is especially good.
