At two locations, the Blue Orange team pampers you with its great service on hard learning days: The free WiFi enables you to have a smooth workflow without the need for emergency cell phone hotspots.

The Cocoquadrat has a variety of offers to meet every need of yours. However, the excellent selection of culinary delicacies is available to everyone: from classic Viennese breakfasts to tasty business lunches – you will find everything here.

Das Möbel is a charming, unconventional café with a long history. The basic idea behind the restaurant was to combine a furniture flea market with a café and thereby create an ever-renewing experience for all visitors. This experiment was a success, and up until today it is still a café and furniture store at the same time. But enough with the history lesson. What makes “das Möbel” a good learning café? In addition to generously distributed power sockets and fast WiFi, the furniture also offers an extremely pleasant atmosphere, which is beneficial both for productivity and for cozy get-togethers. Of course, the cuisine is not neglected either: with breakfast (buffet on
the weekend!), sweet delicacies and specialties that change every week, your well-being is taken care of from sunrise to sunset.
If you need a well-deserved break after a long, hard day of studying, “das Möbel” is also the right address for you. With a comprehensive wine and beer menu, as well as numerous events, fun evenings are guaranteed!

Café Hildebrandt is a small, fine eatery that is always worth a visit, especially for connoisseurs. In the café, which is directly adjacent to the Folklore Museum, you will receive excellent meals, while you can sit back and relax within the cozy living room ambience and concentrate on your uni papers. From freshly made breakfast to homemade cakes and pies to nourishing bowls, you will find everything your heart desires here. Of course, there is also free WiFi and power sockets. Next to this spacious living room is a beautiful garden, which is perfect for relaxing in the fresh air as well. But there is one catch: Café Hildebrandt is extremely popular, which is why it is unfortunately not suitable for spontaneous visits. We recommend that you reserve a table in advance.
