Brunch & A Walk Through Vienna


You might have noticed that I've given up on my Sunday roundup posts around the end of 2014. That's mostly because every Sunday, I would feel obligated to get that post done when actually, I would have preferred to spend it with family & friends and not think about it. I think if you have to pressure yourself to post on your own blog, it's never a good thing. So I thought instead of having an obligatory Sunday post each week, I'll only post when I actually do something that I feel like is worth posting about! 

Yesterday my friend Pezi and I decided we wanted to spend some time together and go out for breakfast/brunch - but when I woke up today, looked out of my window and saw that it was snowing, and I insantly regretted that decision! I mean, who wants to leave their cozy, snuggly, perfectly warm bed and go out into the cold? Exactly. I did manage to get up however, and I'm glad I did!

We went for breakfast to a café called Point of Sale which is in Vienna's 4th district Wieden (the full adress is Schleifmühlgasse 12-14, 1040 Vienna). I wanted to go somewhere I haven't been before, so Pezi suggested this place as she knew it already and liked the food. They have a really big selection of breakfast treats featuring dishes from different cuisines of the world which is really cool, but also very 'classic' choices as well. I also love the area it's located in as it's known to be the more artsy area of Vienna, and there's a lot of small nice-looking cafés in the surroundings. 

Even though it was really cold, we still took a little stroll through Vienna's 1st district were all the pretty buildings are located in - although I must say, the beautiful architecture is not limited to that part of the city! It was a really nice, relaxing start into this Sunday - and now I'm back home watching the snow outside from my snuggly couch, which is also pretty fantastic.

Hope you're all having a great Sunday! :)

  1. SOOOO beautiful pictures!!! Oh Vienna really is a great city :) - and your friend Pezi looks so very good on the pics.
    I've just got one question concerning the café, you said the food is good and they really have a great selection, but what about the prices, is it as expensive as for example the Aumann in the 18th district, or is it more affordable??? xx Paty

    1. Oh thanks Paty! :D It really depends on what you're ordering, I actually don't think the breakfast stuff at Aumann is very expensive compared to the rest of the menu, so I guess it's similar or a little cheaper maybe! :) xx

  3. This is a really great idea for a post :). It is far better to post about what you enjoy rather than feel obligated! The omlette (?!) with olives looks delicious. I only tried my first olive a few months ago and now I can't get enough of them, especially haldiki olives with feta and sundried tomatoes!

    1. Thanks so much - it was a really spontaneous decision to take my camera with me, but I'm glad I did! :)
      Yes it's an omelette with all kinds of stuff in it, I think it was part of the Greek inspired breakfast menu my friend ordered! I have to admit that I'm not a fan of olives or tomatoes, haha - but visually that omelette was very pleasing, that's for sure! :D
