Vienna features an extremely wide variety of pubs and restaurants, from very basic budget eateries to posh and extremely upscale places.
Although its by far not possible to cover the whole segment, we tried to showcase at least a couple of student places here:
Nestled in the mainly residential 8th district, the Tunnel offers breakfast, snacks and full meals at unbeatable prices in a relaxed multicultural student atmosphere. Downstairs venue with daily live performances (cover charge may apply).
where: 1080, Florianigasse 39
when: daily 09h00-02h00
The Kolar, a hideout in a small side street in the city center, specializes in Fladen, probably best described as pizza calzone-like flat cakes from the stone oven, filled with a seemingly endless variety of ingredients. Try the special Kolar Pils!
where: 1010, Kleeblattgasse 5 (off Tuchlauben)
when: daily 11h00 till late
Frequented mostly be students from the nearby Wirtschaftsuni, the Selbstverstaendlich features breakfast, baguettes, salads and typical Austrian meals. You should go for the chefs speciality Nockerln(dumplings with different trimmings)!
