Trendy Millennial residents from Vienna’s elegant District 8 (Josefstadt) fill the small tables of Hildebrandt, a popular breakfast restaurant in this sleepy but prosperous part of town. The location is the run-down and charming Palace Schönborn, designed by Baroque starchitect Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt, hence the moniker (the restaurant shares the ground floor with the quirky Austrian Folk Museum).

Amid Vienna's Middle Eastern and avocado-dominated breakfast landscape, here you can also enjoy a simple and satisfying plate of ham and eggs. Forget about a table without advance booking. Breakfast served until 3 p.m.
