Kaffeefabrik (Mariahilf)

A pioneer of Viennese new-wave coffee, Kaffeefabrik is a small, laid-back cafe just off the main shopping street, Mariahilfer, in District 6. Customers can pick the beans and flavor profiles for their espresso-based or filter coffees. The service is kind and lingering is welcome, space permitting. Kaffeefabrik's original location is in District 4, near Karlsplatz, where their roastery is also located (but with little seating).
