Picture of Barbara Boda
Updated: 6 November 2016
Graz is the second largest city in Austria and became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999. The city is a popular spot, not only for its universities but its amazing venues, good food and interesting museums. Also, if you are there around December don’t miss the advent market with its amazing lights and atmosphere. Here are some of the best coffee shops in the city.

This place was designed to encourage you to drink in instead of taking your coffee to go, either by grabbing a morning coffee while browsing a newspaper, or just sitting and watching the world go by. If you are a student, you could always take a window seat and prepare for your next lecture. Tribeka is an ideal place for meeting people, with its coziness and slightly hipster interior, not to mention the homemade cookies.

Address and telephone number: Grieskai 2 Graz Austria + 43 699 128 46385

Barista’s Downtown

Set in a beautiful environment in the city’s old town, Barista’s Downtown serves every kind of coffee and everything coffee-related. In a nice non-smoking area you can observe the skillful baristas at work, pouring their passion for coffee into your mug. Good coffee starts with the beans, and in this place every moment of the process is cherished. You can also have different teas, fruit juices, cocktails and hearty brunches.

Café Schwalbennest

Situated right in the center of Graz, this lovely and friendly cafe welcomes you for a cup of hot coffee or some sweets. Probably the best time to enjoy a nice coffee here is in spring, when you can witness the first sunbeams shining down between the roofs while sitting inside in the cozy warmth of the locale. It’s also the ideal location for brunch, with breakfast dishes prepared from the best ingredients, with love and care.

Address and telephone number: Franziskanerplatz 1 Graz Austria +43 316 8188 92

Opern Café

This cozy cafe sits on Opernring, or the opera avenue, not far from the majestic opera house. This place serves a great breakfast menu and wonderful coffee in the mornings. The baristas are all well-trained and prepare your coffee with passion.

Café Promenade

Very close to the cathedral in Graz, this cafe offers a wealth of excellent coffees, tasty breakfasts, and even tapas and top-notch wines. The interior with its beautiful, colorful flowers on the walls and oriental floor makes you feel welcome and relaxed from the moment you step through the door. The whole cafe is very elegant yet also very cozy, and has a history that dates back to 1870.

Address and telephone number: Erzherzog-Johann-Allee 1 Graz Austria +43 316 813 840

Kaffee Weitzer

Weitzer is a very classical place, with pristine white walls, traditional coffee-house seats and beautiful chandeliers. It certainly has the flair of a Viennese cafe. Don’t miss the tasty homemade cakes, filling breakfasts or, later in the day, the Fiaker goulash – and of course, their coffee. You can also enjoy your time here by reading the complimentary international newspapers and by sitting in the garden area, which was renovated and based upon photos of the original location.
