Quick and good in the 2nd district

Culinary delights in spite of little time

You don’t always have to be  in the heart of the city to enjoy typically Viennese specialities. In the 2nd district, around the Prater and the Karmelitermarkt, there are lots of quick snack possibilities which are just right if time is short.



  1. 1

    Café Klitzeklein

    Probably the smallest coffee house in Vienna is situated right next to Vienna's Giant Ferris Wheel. Coffee is served in a stylish wooden hut. True to the motto "small but nice". The coffee is also very enjoyable. This is exactly the right place for anyone needing a refreshing cup of delicious coffee before or after a visit to the Viennese Prater.

  2. 2

    Bitzingers Würstelstand (sausage stand)

    A Käsekrainer (sausage with cheese in the filling) with a slice of brown bread and a spicy pepperoni. At Bitzinger's sausage stand there is all this with Viennese tradition. Here, not only Austrian quality is important, but also the Viennese dialect, which has many strange expressions for ordering the different kinds of sausages!

  3. 3


    The Karmelitermarkt is situated in the heart of the Leopoldstadt - a district for exciting food, young art and to simply enjoy. Not far from the Danube Canal, this is the place to enjoy a quick coffee and watch the bustle of the market. Here you will find a wide selection of restaurants: from small bistros to classic Viennese cafes.

  4. 4

    Fett + Zucker

    If you need something which is fast and strong, then Fett + Zucker in Leopoldstadt is just right. It definitely pays off to stop by for a coffee and a (vegan) cake to take awáy. Because the people who run it know what's important.

  5. 5


    Supersense has much more to offer than a quick espresso: namely shopping! in the Dogenhof you will find the perfect combination of Viennese coffee house culture and a concept store. It is particularly interesting for design and photography lovers. The perfect place to reduce the weight of your wallet.
