Instagram is a wonderful, wonderful place. Especially when you are constantly looking for new places to drink coffee and eat cake. Like I mentioned in an earlier post I’m trying to work my way through all the tiny cafés Vienna has to offer and so far this is going really well!
This suggestion came my way and I couldn’t be happier.
Brass Monkey is a relatively small café but offers a variety of cupcakes. The coffee selection is a bit more limited than in other cafés but their tea-game is strong. The Staff is incredibly friendly and there’s a ton of magazines and newspapers on the table waiting to be read. I instantly fell in love with the relaxed atmosphere, chalkboards and colourful tiles of the counter.
The only downside of this place is that (as far as I can tell) there’s no restroom for customers. Which is, if you’re like me and sit around cafés for hours, not ideal at all.
Still, I’m sure I’ll be back. There’s coffee to drink and cupcakes to eat.
I’ve been at this bakery last summer and already loved it. They make killer iced hazelnut lattes.
They also make killer humus bagels. So good. I’m not kidding.
The bakery is decorated in california beach bar style. It has cute photographs, surfboards, wallpaper and mismatched chairs. In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m obsessed with mismatched everything. It’s like an instant love with me.
There are two locations of the Pure Living Bakery. One is located in Hietzing and then there’s the Pure Living Bakery Downtown, located in the 7th district. I have yet to visit the Downtown location but if it’s anything like the one in Hietzing, you’re in for a treat :)
And they make super cute latte art. Like, seriously, isn’t this bear awesome?!
I have started a new project and it’s called “discover as much as you can!”
Basically it’s me trying to discover new places to eat and have coffee and I have a list that seems almost endless. However, if you have suggestions I’m always open to new discoveries!
I spontaneously stopped by the Hiddenkitchen yesterday. Originally I meant to get coffee but then they had all these different kinds of salads and the soup sounded great and I hadn’t eaten yet and oh my God, the food was just delicious!
The couscous salad was to die for and the broccoli-lemongrass soup was just as good.
However, they also have cupcakes, coffee and tea. I’ve also been told that their breakfast is great (this is pretty much on top of my to-do list now!)
If you’re looking for something small, quiet and laid-back then this is your place!
Jack, who blogs over at the Edge of Noise, practically forced me to listen to one of their songs ages ago. At first I couldn’t quite get into it. I couldn’t tell you why but I think I just wasn’t in the right mood. A few weeks later though I clicked on the link again and I was hooked.
I really wanted to link you to “Don’t forget to pray” but apparently, youtube won’t let me see that video, ergo I can’t link you to it either. Chances are that if you don’t live in Austria, you’ll be able to find it without any troubles on youtube :)
