Yppenplatz is a gentrifying neighborhood a bit outside Vienna's city center in District 16, where a mainly Turkish community lives together with a growing number of young alternatives. Frida, a buzzing breakfast restaurant, caters to this latter demographic. The dishes lean Mexican, with lots of egg-based breakfast foods and burritos, as well as vegan and vegetarian options (plus wines and craft beers).

Frida is most enjoyable in the warmer months, when sitting at the outdoor tables overlooking the square. Once here, you can't and shouldn't miss the lively Brunnenmarkt, a long row of Turkish and Middle Eastern vendors.
