If you like your coffee especially bright and light-roasted – an acid-forward flavor bomb – then Kaffemik might just be the place for you. This undersized cafe and roastery in the heart of it all (District 7) is considered an institution among Vienna’s coffee experts. Don’t be intimidated by the new-wave trappings – no pressure, no pretensions here. Kaffemik’s moniker comes from the Greenlandian name for a social gathering over coffee and cakes. The best time for a kaffemik at Kaffemik is the warmer months, when they open their spacious terrace on the pedestrian-only Zollergasse.
