Opened in Summer 2018 this café is located right in the heart of Lochau and is definitely an exciting addition to the village. Housed within the interior design “Platzhirsch Home.Living” company, it is no wonder that this café is the perfect combination of food and style.
Open from early until late everyday, offering food and drink for every time and occasion it has quickly become a local favourite.
Their weekly menu is an eclectic and creative mix of dishes, from traditional Austrian to Asian delights and wholesome Italian food. Accompany these with a salad or soup from their buffet and you are good to go. They also have a good selection of breakfast plates, making it a great spot to enjoy a lazy brunch.
The robust drinks menu has everything you need to quench your thirst; coffee, tea, wine, beer, spirits and a very good cocktail selection, both alcoholic and non alcoholic.
If you’re craving something sweet then their cake selection will hit just the right spot and the portion sizes are nothing to be laughed at. When I visited for coffee and cake with a friend we were served with huge pieces of delicious homemade apple cake and I must confess that both of us had no problems finishing them. I had already eaten half when I remembered to take the photo :).
We devoured these whilst enjoying the sun outside. Sitting outside at a café, enjoying a drink with friends is one of lifes small joys. However I find that so often those outdoor chairs are the most uncomfortable things you have ever sat on. Don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about. Well here their immensely comfy and chic chairs and sofas, will mean you will never want to leave. The café is located directly on the main road and so it can at times get a bit loud, however I found the hustle and bustle just added to the overall atmosphere and who doesn’t love a bit of people watching?
Back inside and the stylish design continues, where the extremely funky gold lights will no doubt catch you eye.
Overall Platzhirsch has a really nice vibe and a certain buzz to it that will leave you in no doubt that you will be returning sometime soon.
