I had a date with my Mum for breakfast. And curious as we are, we had to try something new. And so Mum picked out Joma – Directly in the inner city of Vienna, it’s the perfect meeting point for us.
Joma is a very fancy restaurant/bar/café. It’s owned by the Figlmüller GmbH, the owner of the famous (and very touristic) Schnitzel-restaurant “Figlmüller” in the inner city. The price is according to that a bit higher than in other venues. But the design is great. The furniture is pretty AND comfortable, the light is nice to talk (but not nice to take photos) and the toilet design is quite funny – Houndstooth door for the ladies, plaid door for the men.
But we were there to eat breakfast. It was easy to decide: We chose two of the five breakfast combinations on the menu and shared. And some cappuccino with that.
The cappuccino tasted great. What’s also nice is that there is no coffee in the breakfast combination, but whatever coffee you choose to have for breakfast, you only pay 1,50 €. (Even if you take two.)
The Joma Breakfast III comes with a soft-boiled egg, a handmade roll, butter, jam and a croissant. (7,00 €)
The Joma breakfast IV consists of a plate of scrambled egg, cheese and ham, butter and jam and a little break basket. (11,00 €)
In the bread basket, we had another handmade roll and some slices of bread. (The menu says you can choose two baked goods, but we didn’t ask and were quite satisfied with the content of our basket.)
The rolls were absolutely delicious. Fresh taste, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I loved to top my roll with butter, jam and the great soft cheese – Yum!
Mum was very delighted about her scrambled eggs, and so was I about my soft-boiled egg – It was perfectly boiled. The bread was also good, and the Croissant fresh.
When we talk, we need time – So I ordered a Chai Latte after my coffee was gone. And it was delicious! But very milky – Since I was already stuffed, it was a bit too much to finish. It was also a bit expensive for a price of 3,90 €. (And there are also various other great teas on the menu I would love to try.)
Our waitress was quite nice, but even nicer were the three waiters that said goodbye when we left. The breakfast and the coffee were on our table in minutes, it was no problem to order something when she went by.
Since we had a really nice and detached little table, we didn’t care about the other costumers, but if you don’t like business atmosphere, Joma may be not the place for you. I think we might have been the only two customers without a tie or suit sitting in there. Tourists don’t seem to make their way into the café. But there’s no dresscode and there is no strange look from anyone – You don’t have to care. Joma is just a great occasion for business people in the inner city to have nice food and atmosphere to talk.
Characteristic: Inner city café – Pricey, fancy design and great food.
