People on Caffeine

People on Caffeine (POC) is a new-wave coffee shop across from the University of Vienna's campus on Alser Straße. The presence of the quick-witted proprietor, Robert Gruber, ensures that POC isn't just another bland, uniform cafe without character, but a lively hub for the local community – Millennials, young families, and people from the university. Take advantage of the outdoor terrace in the warmer months. Cash only and closed on the weekend.

Fun fact: POC is located in the side of a Baroque church; in fact, the Alser Vorstadt Kirche was home to the 1827 funeral service of Ludwig van Beethoven whose last residence was nearby!
