Pizza Place

Austrian Restaurant
$$
“Unassuming from the outside, its mint green door is the only clue to its existence. This hipster hangout in an Austrian Gasthaus’ body has earned its fame in the last couple of years for its generous weekend breakfasts. Once inside, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s an Aladdin’s cave of dark wooden panelled walls, and slightly mismatched, but homely, furniture. And if you like the cosy interior, you’ll love the Schanigarten. Enclosed by an inner courtyard, it feels like an escape from the world outside. The sun also hits it perfectly in the morning. Occasionally, there are also live music acts held here in the evenings throughout the week.”
