They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I could not agree more. There are a lot of places offering weekend buffet breakfasts, but here are a few of my favourite places to enjoy a relaxing weekend treat.
Platz 66, Mellau
Their cafe/ deli really makes the most out of the fantastic regional produce in Bregenzerwald, offering an incredible breakfast buffet. The bread from Bäckerei Kleber in Bezau and their homemade marmalades and spreads are a highlight, as well as their freshly made sweet treats. As well as their buffet they offer eggs (cooked however you like them, even poached) with avocado or bacon, and a few other smaller dishes like muesli. However the star is most definitely the coffee (it is delicious) and to enjoy all this whilst surrounded by the mountains means this is one not to miss.
Marktstraße 2, Dornbirn
In the heart of Dornbirn Frei Cafe/ Bar allows you to graze your heart out until about 3pm, so grab your friends or that special someone and enjoy a really relaxed long brunch. On first glance their buffet may not look that big but their selection will keep you going for a long time and cater to all tastes. You will probably run out of space on your table, followed closely by space in your belly when you try to sample everything; freshly baked breads and croissants, cheeses, meats, avocado, smoked salmon, spreads, marmalade’s, peanut butter, boiled eggs, muesli, fruit…
Am Garnmarkt, Götzis
Before a day of shopping until you drop, make sure you fill up on a good hearty breakfast, and Canapé Coffee has all of your breakfast needs covered. Fluffy pancakes, homemade Birchermuesli, croissants, bagels, and bread smoothered in a whole range of spreads and marmalades, all washed down with a delicious coffee or tea of your choice.

Maurachgasse 6, Bregenz
Another vegan/ vegetarian cafe nestled in the backstreets of Bregenz. This cute and cosy cafe serves you your coffee in beautiful patterned tea cups and they have a mish mash of old and modern furniture making you feel like you stepped into someone’s home. Again another cafe very passionate about regional and bio produce. From February they will be serving brunch on the first Sunday of the month. They offer a variety of homemade specialities including hummus varieties, vegan eggs, grilled vegetables, quiches, tortillas, and pancakes. Their breakfast platters are a bestseller on the weekends and their homemade cakes and muffins and coffee also make for a well deserved treat any time of day.
Schlossplatz 10, Hohenems
Home to Fernkart chocolate, if you make it through their irresistible shop on the way to the cafe without buying your weight in chocolate, I salute you. This cafe caters to all breakfast tastes from the traditional homemade bread and croissants, marmalade’s, meat and cheeses, to pancakes and fresh fruit, smoked salmon toast, to a full English fry up. You can also mix and match with a choice of extras, but I can definitely recommend the breakfast tower for 2 (or 3 people). You will be served up literally with a tower of food and the best bit, it comes with two of their finest pralines and a glass of prosecco to wash it down. Their toasts are also absolutely delicious. Try their mushroom, ham and cheese melt, and I guarantee you will not leave unsatisfied.
Marktstrasse 28, Hohenems
Also in Hohenems is Frida’s Bioladen & Cafe who really showcase their love for regional bio produce. I love the interior of this cafe with beautiful wooden tables, cool hanging lights and cushions galore, plus their food and coffee is delicious. For breakfast you have a few options which all come with a hot drink. They have a really good selection of teas to choose from and their coffee is extremely tasty. Their gourmet breakfast is very popular serving you with a hot drink, a glass of prosecco, a portion of bread and a portion of zopf (sweet bread) along with a cheese plate and marmalade’s.
