Korb is a lively cafe in Vienna's city center best known as the hub of underground Viennese artists in the 1960-70s. A midcentury remodeling left its mark on the interior complete with linoleum floors and plastic-topped tables (the futuristic but impractical bathroom merits a visit to the below-ground level).

Today, many tourists stumble in here, but the ambiance of the cluttered space still exudes a bit of irreverence. The Viennese breakfast dishes and savory classics are solid; keep an eye out for the below-ground music hall with live concerts. Note that prices reflect the downtown premium.
