Located across from the University of Vienna's enormous campus in District 9 (once the biggest general hospital in the world, founded by the enlightened Habsburg, Joseph II), CoffeePirates is a lively hub of chic students. Pirates was among the first specialty cafes and roasteries to appear in Vienna in 2012 and it's still going so strong that finding a seat can be a challenge. If the baristas show you a bit of an attitude, rest assured knowing you’re not alone. Lingering is welcome, wifi available, prices a little steep.

To remain unbiased, I visit all places incognito and pay for my own meals and drinks. If you're enjoying this article, please consider supporting me by making a one-time payment (PayPal, Venmo).
