Come to the Orangerie for a phenomenal (and affordable) all-you-can-eat buffet. Serve yourself as much smoked salmon, cereal, yogurt, ham, greens, eggs, and fruit as your heart desires, as well as bottomless cups of coffee and juice. Ideally situated in the heart of the Old Town’s commercial district, the Orangerie is the perfect stop to rev yourself up for a big day of shopping. While the atmosphere at this popular spot is quite lively, try to grab a spot on the second floor near the window for a great view and a more peaceful start to your day.
If you have a serious sweet tooth, head over to Cafe Katzung and make a meal out of their amazing Tirolian delicacies, such as their rich signature torte, or a generous slice of their authentic Apfelstrüdel topped with fresh cream. You can pair these sweet treats with some of the best coffee and hot chocolate in Innsbruck. They also have a number of more savory options, including tantalizing omelettes, toasted sandwiches and warming soups. Whatever you’re in the mood for here, you can look forward to dining in a laid back, modern atmosphere with a hint of old world charm.
This bustling bistro is a great place to go for American standards with a European twist, served in generous portions to give you great value for your money. The Breakfast Club‘s atmosphere is always lively and has special touches like blankets on the seats to keep you cozy.
Located in the luxurious 5-star Grand Hotel Europa, brunch at Europa Stüberl is more than just a meal, it’s a fine dining experience.

When you brunch at this bastion of hotel hospitality, you’ll start the day off feeling like royalty.
Located in the heart of the Old Town, Stefans Brotmanufaktur is popular for its stylish decor and very reasonable prices.
