This iconic kaffeehaus has welcomed philosophers and movie stars for more than a century. You might recognize the velvet banquets from the film Before Sunrise. Like at all the iconic kaffeehauses, the coffee itself is perfectly prepared, and you can spend hours in the velvet booths over a long breakfast (they serve a traditional Austrian, a simpler American, a French). Afternoons here are delightful as well—if you're coming in for coffee, don't leave without an accompanying apfelstrudel.
