If you are similar to us you love good coffee in stunning coffeehouses with a tasty dessert. (Swedish „fika“ has left its marks…) For a long time, the coffee scene in Linz was quite old-fashioned. Thankfully, that has changed already. “Third wave of coffee” still isn’t a commonly know term around here but still Linz can be very proud of those new coffeehouses. Naturally, we are thrilled about the trendy upcoming coffeehouses in Linz. Therefore, we will present you a list of our favorite coffee places and our tips for each coffeehouse. For us, a good coffee place has to offer good coffee, tasty food and unique interior design.
Kessy and Joey love … Coffeehouses in Linz
The lead off has been “Die Brüher”, the first really modern place. We totally fell in love at first sight and have been there what feels like a 1000 times. Especially the wall behind the counter is great (apart from coffee and food of course 😀 ).
Drinks: You’ll get tasty Espresso, Cappuccino, Café Latte and Americano from their La Marzocco machine. Also different forms of filter coffee are offered, including French Press and Aero Press. You should also try their cold brew coffee (especially good with tonic). Those who don’t love coffee won’t miss out either, since “Die Brüher” offer Matcha Latte, Chai Latte and a great selection of Kusmi tea.
Food: If you are an avocado lover like Joey you will love the avocado bread. If not, you will still love one of the waffles or the muesli.
Cost-performance ratio: drinks: good, food: ok // Good for having brunch? Yes // Good for working? Definitely // Good for specialty coffee? Yes
Secret tip: Try the Iced Cappuccino when it’s hot outside. It will save your day. 😛
Monday – Saturday: 9.30 a.m. – 6.00 p.m.
Sunday: 11.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.
Only recently opened, another one of our favorite coffeehouses in Linz is NomNom. It’s a must go to for coffee and design lovers. Trendy bowls and third wave of coffee are ruling here. It was love at first bite and always a pleasure to go to NomNom.
Drinks: Barista Michael will make you everything a coffee lover can wish for. Apart from the traditional coffees (Espresso, Americano, Cappuccino, Café Latte), Michael’s specialty is filter coffee from a V60, French or Aero Press. You can choose between different beans from Süssmund and Kaffee Alt Wien (you can also buy the beans). If it’s not super stressful, Michael is happy to talk to you about coffee. 😉
Food: Well, the heart of NomNom are the bowls and smoothies. We recommend not leaving NomNom without tasting one of those. NomNom also offers a small breakfast and vegan cakes.
Cost-performance ratio: drinks&food: good // Good for having brunch? Yes // Good for specialty coffee? Yes // Reservation needed? Recommended
Secret tip: B4 – a bowl from beetroots and apples, topped with hummus, avocado, cashew nuts and cress.
Monday – Friday: 9.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m.
Saturday: 10.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m.
If you love tarts, crumble cake, ‘Gugelhupf’ or other typical Austrian cakes, Gerberei is perfect for you. Once again, good cakes and coffee are combined with stunning interior design. One can see that the two owners truly put all their heart in this coffeehouse.
Drinks: We are talking about a more traditional place here and that is also shown in the coffee menu. You’ll get good coffee but also hot chocolate and tea. Gerberei also offers local beer and organic wine.
Food: The cakes are constantly changing and as far as we are concerned every cake we tried was delicious. You can also get little snacks like an organic toasted flatbread filled with cheese and pesto. Generally the owners value organic food and have been very caution with picking their suppliers.
Cost-performance ratio: drinks&food: very good // Good for families? Definitely (playing area inside) // Good for bigger groups? Yes, but make a reservation.
Secret tip: Try the apple crumble cake if they have it – it’s to die for.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 11.30 a.m. – 9.00 p.m.
Saturday, Sunday: 2.00 p.m. – 9.00 p.m.
Founded by the ideological daughters of Friedlieb Runge, Friedlieb und Töchter is a great place for exceptional cakes and Scandinavian design. Cake is probably the best clue for this place. You won’t get any other unique cake like that anywhere near, we promise.
Drinks: By the way, also coffee tastes well here.
Food: Cakes, tarts, pies and more. You’ll get a dessert which you’ll eat so slowly and delightfully because you wish it would be an endless piece of cake. The selection changes all the time – perfect for trying new stuff. This might be your chance to try glutenfree or vegan desserts.
Cost-performance-ratio: drinks&food: good // Good for cake lovers? Hell yes // Good for families? Yes
Secret tip: Don’t forget to check out their little shop next to the counter.
