Books and Kaffee Latte

The best discoveries are done by accident. That also counts for ‘Phil’ in Vienna. Here, you can buy books, music and sit down for a Kaffee Latte with soy milk.

Phil is a typical place where young and creative people like to go to. Most of them were between twenty and forty years old, so I felt at home immediately, relaxing on a leather couch from the seventies, surrounded by books and ordering a Kaffee Latte with soy milk (hard to get in traditional coffeehouses).

The tea and food is mostly organic, but don’t expect big meals though; the ‘burger’ I ordered, turned out to be a small sandwich with cheese and ham. But you don’t come to Phil for the grand food. You come here to talk with friends, drink (good) coffee or herb tea, read a book, work on your laptop and to get inspirered.

Best working spots: Café Prückel

My football-friends were right about Café Prückel; I’ve definitely found one of my favorite working spots for this summer. I decided to celebrate this newest discovery with my first Viennese Apfelstrudel!

It’s light, it’s spacious but ‘gemütlich’ and quiet at the same time, there’s (free) wifi ánd more Apfelstrudel than a girl can desire. And even better, Café Prückel is popular with the locals.

The Apfelstrudel was a bit to sweet for my taste though, next time I’m gonna try another ‘Torte’. With 35 degrees outside I’m sweating all the calories out anyway. A friend warned me about the hot Viennese summers, but I don’t really mind the high temperatures. It feels like I’m on holiday.
