Caffe vom See is a small specialty cafe located in a side street off Naschmarkt, in the elegant-cool part of Vienna's District 4. The friendly owner, who also manages a hotel and a roastery at Lake Millstatt in Carinthia, aims for a coffee style that delivers the heft of Italian-style espressos with the finesse of Austrian coffee traditions (filter coffee isn’t even served). Try to snag one of the two comfortable plush chairs by the windows and give it a try. Price points are friendly for Vienna, laptops welcome, wifi available.
