Ooh la la …
I know, we live in Vienna, a city with its own coffee house culture and delicious eateries like Cafe Central or Cafe Landtmann but if you are missing Paris or would like to leave the stuffiness of Austrian cafes behind, stop by the Café Français for a cafe au lait or two.
The cafe just opened in January of this year and is already a huge hit, always busy any time of day so make sure to reserve a table in advance (even during the week!). It has a very authentic French atmosphere – staff speak French, French music, delicious food (I particularly recommend the breakfast choices), and excellent coffee. And, if you have kids, the staff is extremely accommodating (they set up a special kids’ table for our brunch this morning).
Café Français is conveniently located in the 9th district close to Schottentor (Währingerstrasse 6-8; closest tram stop is Schwarzspanierstrasse) and is open Monday through Saturday 9am until midnight. Bon Appétit!
