One of the more mainstream specialty cafes in Vienna, the Goldener Papagei is located in the new-cool Leopoldstadt, just across the Danube canal in District 2. 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.
