Tasty Tuesdays: Coffee Pirates

The weather this week has been absolutely gorgeous here in Vienna. It’s been sunny and temperatures in the 50’s, which made today’s outing so much more special.

I’ve passed by Coffee Pirates several times over the last year, with a promise every time that I would try it one day.  Since setting a goal to eat/drink my way through Vienna’s cafes, I finally made it today.  It’s a perfect location between the general hospital and the university-definitely a happening place. You’ve got students in there studying, chatting and hanging out, plus others such as myself-enjoying some refreshments with a book or newspaper.  This place also roasts their own coffee beans and have been awarded, and in addition, a member of Specialty Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE). It reminded me of a place called Cama Cafe in Taiwan, which has many similarities. I ordered one of their winter specials called a “dirty chai”. What’s in it you ask? A little bit of chai latte, a shot of espresso and sprinkles of cinnamon. It was super delicious and unique. I would have never thought to put that combination together. They also offer panini sandwiches and some sweets. Another great advantage? It’s in our neighborhood. I wonder how many more great surprise establishments that I’ll find as I continue to explore this city. Happy Tuesday everyone!

  1. Thanks for sharing! I promised myself I will try all the Viennese cafes I stumble upon, but I have not encountered this one just yet. Next time I’ll be there I shall definitely give it a try!
