Breakfast,  Sweets & Treats

Coffee & Bread

I am taking part in an exciting up-and-coming project that I will be sharing with you all in about a month. To prepare for this project, we decided to discuss our business points at Coffee & Bread, a well-known coffee spot near Vienna University of Technology, Naschmarkt, and Karlsplatz.

I came here in the morning, hungry and with the intent of trying one of their breakfasts. As I walked in I was greeted politely by the cashier and took a look around at the very simple display of breads, bagels, sandwiches and fruits in front of me. Looking over to my left I noticed a very large black board creatively written in what looks like chalk, sharing their breakfast options.

I thought on a cool morning, some hot porridge would do well for me.  Then I also ordered a Cafe Latte because I’m pretty fond of those.

I later find out they call out the porridge for me to pick up, so as I went up to the counter I glanced over at my breakfast and was absolutely impressed. This porridge looked great and not only great, was presented so beautifully with it’s fruits and muesli sprinkled on top in a pretty blue bowl. I couldn’t wait to dive into it. And to note: I enjoyed the porridge so much I was inspired to make my own the next morning.

This place is hopping with people on a daily basis!  So if you are around the area and would like to grab a nice breakfast or coffee, I suggest you give Coffee & Bread a shot. I found this  place to be a very nice spot to hang out at.
