In amongst lovely vintage goodies for sale sits a great little eatery. So in this wonderful ambiance sits a great place to sit having either breakfast/lunch/aperitifs/supper or whatever you fancy. The weekend is WiFi free but the rest of the week it can be used...More

The best hot chocolates (with rum, if you like!) and the most inspiring book collection in town (German & some in English). Also good for coffees. Can be difficult to get a table in the evening, but it’s worth the wait.

There are so many books it’s beautiful. The place is extremely comfortable and perfect to go get a coffee or beer and read a book. It’s also great to meet up a friend and talk.

Have waited for hours for our order to be taken, but no one seems interested. Will probably die of lung cancer from all the smokers out here before we get a chance. Terrible.

Is it a cafe, a bookshop or a place for breakfast? Or maybe the most important is unique atmosphere? It seems to me that everything of that has been given to me in Phil what I've been checked several times. You can eat there a...More

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with

Thomas Bernhard At phil you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom concentrated in all the books through your skin, without even opening them" After Mark Twain
