The best Breakfast Spots in Tirol

Updated on 17.05.2018 in Food & Drink

Landei 1

According to my Mum, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In my early years, I didn’t always agree. Today, however, I love breakfast all the more.

So if it’s given that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, why not have it be the most delicious? These places around Innsbruck are the best spots to start your morning with a kick of flavour. Plus, there are great places to have breakfast all across the country.

I have asked my friends and colleagues for their favourite breakfast spots in Tirol. So if you want the best edible start to your best day ever, here are the places you need to hit in Tirol. (Additional ones will be regularly added, so check back for more to come.)

Gut Matzen in Reith im Alpbachtal –

Matzen Frühstück

Towered by the fairytale Matzen Castle, this amazing place embraces the original historic architecture of the space with vaulted ceilings, a tiled stove that dates back to around 1700 and Neo-Gothic style wood paneling. Upon walking through the doors, you will instantly feel like you have time travelled back into a past world—and you will feel spoiled like the Lords and Ladies who once occupied the property. On sunny days, guests can enjoy al fresco dining at their outdoor patio, with wonderful views of the restored 12th century Matzen Castle that sits majestically amid sprawling acres of manicured gardens and grounds.

Breakfast Menu:
From the “Süss & Klein” breakfast for sweet and small cravings (€ 7.50 per person) to “Groß & Fein” with all extras and add-ups you can imagine, such as Italian dry-cured ham, hay-milk cheese, salmon and wood-oven-baked bread (€ 14.50 per person).

Exciting Breakfast Items:
Tasty fresh juice of tomatoes, celery, cucumber and lemon is € 6.50 and makes a great pick me up breakfast juice.

Their “Groß & Fein” breakfast of fresh and locally sourced specialties is delicious – it looks great and tastes even better!

Breakfast Hours:
Wednesdays to Sundays 09:00am to 11:00am

Young and stylish, the industrially-inspired interior features an intimate and cosy atmosphere. Breakfast is the signature meal at Zauberei and is your best bet. The menu offers everything you could possibly desire—and more. Of course, you can as well opt for a simple croissant and a cup of coffee. But who would want that if you can have homemade killer cakes? Zauberei owner Anja is a very warm and inviting person, who will make you feel truly at home.

From the “Kleine Zauberei” (‘Small Magic’) breakfast for small cravings (€ 8.00 per person) to “Tristan & Isolde” for Two, including juice and prosecco at € 28.00, there’s something for big appetites and everything in between. Of course, you can create your very own breakfast here, too.

The eclectic interior is filled with mismatched tables and seats and the atmosphere is friendly and colourful with a living room vibe. This is a lovely place to watch the world go by.

Delectable dishes include homemade cakes, Belgian waffles, fresh fruit, arugula, dry-cured ham, the whole nine yards… Grab a steaming cup of freshly brewed Coffee Kult coffee, arguably the best coffee in town.

Nani Kaffee & Konzept in Söll –

Attention to detail? You bet. It’s casual, hip and homey, with a great patio room for enjoyable brunching. The tiny Concept Store next door sells interesting pieces to fill your dwellings, from tableware and serving ware to home accessories, unique gifts and jewellery. Combining a café with retail in the one space is a new and very exciting concept. It provides customers with that true lifestyle experience of being able to both shop and relax with friends over a coffee. The great-grandparents of today’s owner Simone operated a coffeehouse in those very rooms more than 50 years ago. The name “Nani” is homage to Simone’s grandma, who was upbeat, positive and relaxed—and who always had time for others. Sounds like a nice concept for a breakfast spot to me.

“Strizi” for small cravings (€ 6.20 per person); “Springingal” for big appetites (€ 12.90 per person)

Special for Two:
„Di & Mi“ (“You & Me”) with prosecco is € 29.60 for two

Breakfast Hours:
Thursdays to Mondays 8:30am to 6:00pm; Tuesdays 8:30am to 2:00pm. Closed on Wednesdays.

Please call +43.660.3017239

Why? Because I have to try that granny-style slow drip pour over coffee.
