    You don't know what to do on a lasy sunday morning? Something I recommend from all my heart is a small brunch with a movie afterwards. The brunch is with lots of fresh bread, some ham and salami, cheese, jam, nutella and honey... Delicious :-)))

    And this whole thing incl. movie cost Euro 9.50. Only breakfast is - 4,50 and only movie - 6,50.

    Favorite Dish: Don't forget to ask for a boilled egg and also you can refill you cup with tea or coffee as many times as you want.

    This whole thing starts at 10.30 am and ends deppending on the movie duration. The movie starts at 12 or 12.30. There are shown 3 movies each sunday. The program till the end of february could be found on the web page I gave you bellow.

    In the past century Vienna was a meeting place for artists and intellectuals who travelled in from other cities and gathered at the coffee houses to talk.
    The old cafes always had pens, paper, and writing supplies and they were so amenable that many writers practically lived in them, holding their meetings there and receiving their mail. Although a lot did not survive World War II, there are still plenty of cafes to enjoy. Vienna has long been known as a city of fabulous coffee and desserts. Apfelstrudl is one of the famous cakes in Austria.

    The location of the restaurant and bar is a fin-de-siécle greenery in “Burggarten”, one of the parks of the Imperial Palace complex; I like the place itself a lot but the service is bad at times and the food is over-rated! But the location...

    Cafés are an institution in Vienna: an elegant, decadent atmosphere and excellent patisserie. For instance at the Café Central in the Rennerweg. Also good cakes at the Konditoreien 'Aïda', all over the city.

    Favorite Dish: Viennese cuisine is heavy but tasty. It has received influences from the many nationalities that made part of the former Austrian empire. The most famous dishes are Wiener Schnitzel, gulash, Sachertorte...

    Visit a Vienna cafe, drink a coffee and try something sweet - like 'Strudel'. And you can choose for that one of the most beloved streets in Vienna - called Graben.
    Graben is a pedestrian street in the heart of the Vienna with beautiful buildings and many cafes. A big variety of coffee-specialities and sweets are offered. You can also try the coffee shop of Hotel Sacher and the world famous Sacher-Torte.

    Here you can learn more the Vienna coffee tradition: http://www.vienna.cc/ekaffeeh.htm

    Favorite Dish: I always trink 'Melange' (coffee with milk and wipped cream) and eat Topfenstrudel.

    Café Stein More a cafe and restaurant, but it is a real cool location, nice people, most of them are students. They have an Internet-Cafe and on some days there are special events.

    Cafe Alt Wien In this rather dark café with its peculiar smell telling of yesterdays cigarettes, you can perfecty enjoy an evening with friends - and a glass of red wine. A hip, laid-back place.

    No favorites... but you MUST check out the different Viennese coffee specialities. Awesome!!

    Any good Viennese cafés.

    Favorite Dish: ONLY strangers order simply COFFEE... For those in the know, there are many interesting blends to entice a coffee lover (ahem... like me) and I'll just name a few of my favorites. Are you ready? Then, get those pen and paper ready. Let's begin with:

    Mokka/ Schwarzer. It's basically PURE coffee with creme without milk.

    Einspaenner. Yes, it's double Mocha with lots of cream (Schlagobers - Apparently only the germans call it Sahne).

    Melange. This is pure coffee with effervesced milk and chocolate. Yummy!

    Fiaker. This heavenly concoction consists of powdered sugar and cherry brandy (heated) mixed with Double Espresso with lots of cream. A cherry on top completes this delicious drink.

    Have I died and gone to Heaven? I LOVE coffee! :-)
