Breakfast in Linz: My Tips

Breakfast locations and cafés that offer vegetarian options are marked 🌱. You can find vegan breakfasts marked 🌱🌱.

Breakfast in Linz #1: Börserie 🌱🌱

I only discovered the Börserie recently. The restaurant at the Südbahnhofmarkt with its delicious breakfasts and cosy atmosphere quickly won a place in my foodie heart.

My favourite at Börserie: Toasted Tramezzini with smoked salmon, smoked salmon tartare and guacamole.

Schillerstraße 70, 4020 Linz

Opening hours
Monday to Friday: 8am to 9pm
Closed Saturdays, Sundays and on public holidays

Breakfast in Linz #2: Die Bohne 🌱🌱

Café Die Bohne is also one of my favourite places to have breakfast in Linz. I like to take friends there who haven’t been to the city before. Die Bohne is a cosy coffee house that offers a wide range of different breakfasts and drinks.

My favourites at Café Die Bohne: salmon breakfast with fillet and tartar of salmon trout and avocado and the omelette with feta cheese and leaf spinach.

Wiener Str. 40, 4020 Linz

Opening hours
Monday to Friday: 7.30am to 8pm
Closed on Saturdays
Sunday: 9am to 6pm

Breakfast in Linz #3: tiktak Café 🌱🌱

I also discovered tiktak only recently and immediately put it on my list of favourites. Cosy and in industrial chic, this coffee house is a great choice not only for breakfast.

My favourites at tiktak: omelette and avocado toast.

Landstraße 119, 4020 Linz

Opening hours
Monday and Wednesday to Saturday: 7am to 6pm
Closed on Tuesdays
Sundays: 8am to 3pm

Breakfast in Linz #4: Stadtliebe 🌱🌱

Those looking for the most luxurious breakfast buffet in all of Linz will find what they are looking for at Stadtliebe. Every Sunday and on all public holidays the City Brunch is held in the heart of the old town. From 9 am to 2 pm you can help yourself to a buffet that leaves nothing to be desired: sweet, spicy, fresh fruit, cakes, antipasti, etc. All drinks are also included in the proud price of € 27.90.

My favourite at Stadtliebe: chocolate cake in a glass.

Landstraße 31, 4020 Linz

Opening hours
Sundays and on public holidays: 9am to 2pm

Breakfast in Linz #5: Horst 🌱🌱

A real haven in Linz is Horst. Even after years I still love the concept of a deco-store and coffee house. Horst may not be a real breakfast place, but there is always a good selection of coffee and cake – home-made, of course.

My favourite at Horst: all cakes.

Mozartstraße 19, 4020 Linz

Opening hours
Tuesday to Friday: 11 am to 7pm
Closed Mondays, Saturdays and Sundays

Horst Linz

Breakfast in Linz #6: Little Dancer 🌱🌱

Little Dancer am Graben is exactly the kind of breakfast place I just love: cosy and stylishly minimalist furnishings, many small corners, a diverse menu, fast and friendly staff and owners with a special history. Theresa and Arron are an Austro-Irish couple who have made a heart’s desire come true with Little Dancer – and you can tell!

My favourites at Little Dancer: Superfood Sensation Smoothie (blueberries, açaí, banana, coconut milk and cocoa) and Shakshuka.

Graben 9, 4020 Linz

Opening hours
Closed on Mondays
Tuesday to Friday: 7.30am to 4pm
Saturday: 8am to 5pm
Sunday: 9am to 3pm

Breakfast places in Linz, which I did not like

At this point I have to mention two restaurants that have disappointed me in the past. Whether it was the service or the selection – or both:

  • Konditorei Jindrak am Pöstlingberg: Although the view from the terrace of the confectionery is simply insanely beautiful, I have recently been disappointed by the very limited and uncreative choice of breakfasts. The food is served on a tray just like at a fast food restaurant, the tables are too small for two breakfasts and the service is only mediocre.
  • cubus (Ars-Electronica-Straße 1, 4040 Linz): At cubus you can also enjoy a great view of Linz. During my last visit the vegetarian breakfast was tasteless. We were overlooked by the service staff several times and had to wait a long time – although the restaurant was far from being crowded.

Viktoria Urbanek Travel Blog Chronic Wanderlust

Grüß dich, I'm Viki!

At Chronic Wanderlust, I write about my two great passions: travelling and diving – and have been doing so since 2013.

I usually spend a solid majority of the year travelling to experience extraordinary underwater adventures, taking road trips through countries I don’t know (yet) or exploring my home country of Austria.

As a certified divemaster, passionate underwater & travel photographer, road trip enthusiast and individual traveller, I collect unique moments all over the world.

I don’t believe that severe cases of wanderlust – aka chronic wanderlust – can be cured, only treated. On this blog, I want to show you how this can best be realised.
