To say this is my favorite coffee shop in Vienna is saying a LOT since there is pretty much a coffee shop on every corner. The atmosphere here is perfect to study, meet friends, or just grab a coffee to go. I've pretty much sampled everything on the menu and never had a bad experience!
You can say what you want about Viennese Coffee House Culture (VCHC) but it's not all about imperial flair, though it's much about it. And in contrast to the aristocratic atmosphere of a Konzert Café Schwarzenberg for instance here we find ourselves in this lovely, cosy, WiFi supported coffee shop called Café Jonas Reindl, named after the tram hub Jonas-Reindl (at Schottentor) to honor Franz Josef Jonas, a Viennese mayor and later Bundeskanzler (Prime Minister) of Austria. As you can see in the picture above (and good observers also recognize me in the photo) this Café has plenty of sunshine all-day long until the evening hours (until the Café closes Monday to Friday at 19:30 / 7:30 pm and Saturday's at 21:30 / 9:30 pm) and through the whole year due to its convenient location at Sigmund-Freud-Park right next to the University of Vienna, Vienna's main University, established in 1365, what makes it one of the oldest Universities in the world. Also in the grey and gloomy winter months Vienna has also its fair share of this sunny location can be a true life-savior. And in the patio you can collect all the sun Vienna has to offer. Inside Café Jonas Reindl it feels a bit like being at Starbucks but Café Jonas Reindl's prices are much more reasonable. You order your choice at the counter and soon after the very friendly staff brings your order to your table. And to your delicious coffee you get also a glass of water to keep everything in balance if you know what I mean, since water is healthy and it's the most healthy you can get in any coffee shop. When you get your coffee it catches your eye in no time that your cappuccino comes from heart, since the baristas draw a heart into the cream topping. The coffee is creamy as the poppy-seed cake is fluffy. Both are super delicious. And also the other cakes and sandwiches the Café Jonas Reindl has to offer whets your appetite when finally the sun sets between the University buildings and Votive Church. With Love! Dr. Dr. Immanu
For all you coffee lovers and connoisseurs, this is the place! The coffee is simply outstanding, the staff knows what they are doing, uses quality products, and you will not be disappointed. No matter what I have tried here, it never fails to impress me and my taste buds. So glad to find this place, which has now become my regular go-to coffee fix. This week I tried a pastry as well, which was also amazing. What a great combination--a coffee shop that can truly brew and bake!
