One of the more mainstream specialty cafes in Vienna, the Goldener Papagei is located in the coolest part Leopoldstadt (District 2), just across the Danube canal from the city center. The interior is spacious and polished and fitted with lots of plants. The coffee is light-roasted and available in all shapes, flavors, and sizes. Also: better-than-average service, pastries, and tea selections. Wifi is strong, laptops accepted.
