Address: Schleifmühlgasse 12-14, 1040 Vienna
A little gem hidden away in Vienna’s fourth district. ‘The Breakfastclub’ is named after the movie. It is a popular diner which offers a creative breakfast menu. Prices are really reasonable but the restaurant is small, so it is recommended that expats make a booking if they wish to avoid the queue, especially at weekends.

DOTS
