Early July 2017 we decided to take a short trip to the capitol of Austria, Vienna. In the space of just a couple of days we managed to find some fantastic places to drink, eat and work and so it seemed rather fitting we put together a list of our favourite places to drink, eat & work in Vienna, Austria.
We arrived into Vienna around dinner time, and headed straight to find somewhere for food. A short walk from our hotel we found Swing Kitchen. The restaurant is vegan but don’t let that stop you. If that doesn’t give you a good indication that this place is a thumbs up then maybe the menu would. We ordered a meal to share as we didn’t want anything too heavy and it was beautiful. The food was reasonably priced and the atmosphere was awesome. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely go back again.
Cocoquadrant is a cafe with a co-working space to one side. It had a great atmosphere and was light decor. We opted for some soft drinks they were super cool! (all be it Vienna prices!)
If you’re looking to work in Vienna for just a day then there is free wifi available in the cafe although it is a little slow. If you’re in Vienna a little longer then the co-working area connects to a different wi-fi network so it could be better (but I didn’t get a chance to find out)
Blue Orange – Besser Essen
We found Besser Essen (or Blue Orange as it’s known in English) on our final day in Vienna an we’re so disappointed we didn’t find it sooner. It’s a great place to sit and enjoy a coffee and get some work done or just simply have some lunch.
On a corner of a street out of the main hustle and bustle of the centre but still in a hive of activity. Blue Orange has plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors. We sat and ate, drank and worked here for the best part of three hours and it was marvelous.
As always to make it as easy as possible for you to find any of these locations I’ve put this map together below;
