Cafe in der Burggasse 24

Coolness is the main appeal of Café in der Burggasse 24, a sizable breakfast restaurant hiding in Vienna's bougie District 7. The predictable breakfast dishes are solid, the coffee just average, but there’s a bit of a scene here, especially in the eclectically furnished back room filled by local twentysomethings typing away on their MacBooks. The firelogs turn out to be more than decorative: one of the hipster servers will occasionally throw a couple of pieces into the corner fireplace that provides warmth and charm in the winter months. (The main space, anchored by a giant sofa, connects to the designer clothing store next door.)
