FIGAR Café – Breakfast – Restaurant – Bar

A newcomer to the area, not to the city. This kind of experience in how to run a bar-café-restaurant shows in every detail. The Figar was accepted from the start, which is not at all easy in the spoiled Freihausviertel gastro-scene. Focus on healthy and good food, breakfast til 4pm.
