Coffee Shop, Austrian, Italian, Tea , $$$

This funky, modern café cites itself as ‘the Godfather of brunch in Innsbruck‘ – serving local, homemade food that will keep you fueled all day. The omelette selection is particularly generous, with lots of veggie options, including the intriguingly named Hell’s Omelette – topped with Austrian mountain cheese, onions and chili and accompanied by an organic bread basket. They source their coffee from Italy, and have soy milk available for lactose-free visitors.

Impressive latte art is one of the highlights of this modern and forward-thinking café.

The results are a delicious and rich flavor. Expert advice is available and there are some specialized accessories to pick up as well – such as coffee filters and pots.
