“So that's why there's always a long line...”
Review of Kaffeekuche

Kaffeekuche
Ranked #87 of 179 Coffee & Tea in Vienna
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 January 2017

I'd been passing by the Kaffeeküche daily on my way to work at the university and had always noticed the long lines of people getting their morning coffee. I've now found out why there's a line - their coffee is absolutely superb. Not a trace of bitterness, creamy milk, no nonsense. Probably the best coffee I've had in Vienna. I haven't had the hot chocolate but have heard good things about it as well.

This isn't a posh local - you'll find no newspapers on sticks or waiters, just take away and a small self-service seating area - but it's right next to the university and it buzzes during term time as hundreds of students pass by in the morning to get their caffeine fix before heading off to lectures.

Local tip: Stay on your toes at busy times as you don't need to be right at the front of the line to get served - rather than serving people one by one they'll take a bunch of orders at once, start making the coffees then go round again for payment.

The cafe can be difficult to find as it is located in an underground passage that leads to Schottentor metro station. But it is totally worth it for an excellent cappuccino (didn't try anything else). Great value too at 2.80 euro for a cup.

Nice humble place for a quick bite of black coffee and brioche. Good for a takeaway and they have a seating area too. Not too many items on the breakfast menu but good enough for a light start.

Kaffeeküche being situated in Schottentor station and near the University of Vienna, is always popular (i.e. there is always a short or long queue). Service is quick, and the staff are lively and friendly. I had a Wiener Melange almost every alternate day on the way to the faculty, and sometimes a croissant with chocolate. Also had a kleiner Brauner, Verlängerter, and iced coffee in the summer. The milk they use is very good.
