Yppenplatz is a gentrifying neighborhood a bit outside Vienna's city center in District 16 where a Turkish community lives together with a growing number of young alternatives. Frida is a buzzing breakfast restaurant catering to this latter demographic. The dishes lean Mexican, with lots of egg-based breakfast foods and burritos, as well as vegan and vegetarian options. Mains are €10-15. Also: plenty of wines and craft beers to elevate the mood. 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.
