Cafe Freud: In Vienna, a place that honors Sigmund Freud

This is the English version of my blog GDAMAS (Portuguese language, online since 2010). I'm still working on it. English is not my native language. Please, feel free to correct me.

In one of my trips to Vienna, I finally went to the famous Freud Museum. A very interesting visit, by the way, and I’ll show it in details here, with lots of photos, a video and some tips for your visit.

Today’s tip is about a place right next to the museum: Cafe Freud. That was a nice surprise.

Hum… Freud and coffee… It’s really interesting, Damas.

You can be sure of that.

Come with me. Let’s have a coffee.

Cafe Freud, Vienna

In front of the Freud Museum, I looked to the left and saw a small esplanade on the sidewalk with white little tables. A cafe. When I noticed the name, I found it very logical, and also a smart marketing strategy.

I had to enter there. I’m very curious, always exploring everything during my trips.

I discovered a charming, friendly space with a nice staff. The decor is mainly dedicated to (guess what!) Sigmund Freud. It preserves an old touch, with a certain atmosphere of “grandma’s house.” And there is a special detail: A table reserved for Dr. Freud. Like if he was still alive and about to get there! Amazing!

Please do not occupy this table. It’s reserved for Dr. Freud. He’ll be here soon.

Clever, uh?

You certainly read this post because you appreciate Freud’s works. So, I suggest you go to Cafe Freud after visiting the Freud Museum. Sit down, relax and think about all you saw in the museum moments ago … while you take your holy caffeine and choose something to eat.

Great idea, Damas! And who knows … maybe Dr. Freud gets there just in time?

Freud and mom

Yes, you can be that lucky. But be careful. He might say, “It’s your mother’s fault.” 😉


Cafe Freud’s address is Berggasse 17, Vienna. Locate it now on Google Maps.

My respectful compliments to your mom. 🌷
