What makes Café Leopold special is an exciting mix of Asian and international cuisine rounded off with Austrian classics. In summer, its outdoor seating area entices you to while away the hours in the MQ Main Courtyard.
Café Leopold offers ambitious Asian fusion cuisine alongside Viennese favorites and produce from regional suppliers. From sushi, poke bowls, and bulgogi to Wiener Schnitzel and hot chocolate muffins, there’s something here for every taste. The café aims to be as attractive to museum visitors from all over the world as it is to guests from Vienna. Café Leopold is run by the restaurateur group around Tie Yang, which has specialized in south Asian and Chinese specialties for more than 15 years, operating various restaurants in Vienna that offer culinary diversity and epicurean surprises.
The restaurant’s visual concept was created by the international artist Jun Yang in cooperation with local architecture studios. Klaus Schwarzenegger was brought in to head the design team for Café Leopold as head planner. Despite a complete renovation of the venue in 2017, the café’s original character has been preserved. Individual elements, such as the light fittings designed in the basic geometric forms of circle, square and rectangle, the glazing in the bar, the bright counter, and the booth at the back of the venue, have now been redesigned with “Viennese chinoiserie.” The furniture is in elegant gray, with tables and Vitra designer armchairs.
In summer, outdoor seating also entices you to while away the hours in the MQ Main Courtyard next to the basin.
Café Restaurant Corbaci places a special emphasis on regional produce and is ideal for a quick lunch, a long dinner, or coffee and cake in the afternoon. The food varies seasonally and the menus of the week and lunch menu offer constant variety. The main focus is on Austrian cuisine – regional, seasonal, and light. Tables in the courtyard mean you can enjoy the summer sunshine in perfect calm.
French architects Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal are responsible for the outstanding design.
The patterned floor tiles evoke a Turkish café. They were designed especially for the space by the architects in partnership with the Vienna-based Turkish artist Asiye Kolbai-Kafalier and were hand-crafted in Istanbul. A raw, unplastered concrete-block wall separates the kitchen area from the dining room. But the wall’s position makes it invisible from outside, with the vault seeming to span the whole space uninterrupted. With its expansive windows, the dining area is a light-flooded room with a direct connection to the MQ’s exterior spaces. In a spirit of timeless elegance, the furnishings are kept simple, with mass-produced tables and chairs.
Café.Restaurant.HALLE is the café and restaurant of the Kunsthalle Wien and the Wiener Festwochen. The menu changes weekly and offers traditional dishes alongside contemporary cuisine.
It is housed in the stylish historic building of the former winter riding hall. It emphasizes fresh, sustainable food and organic produce. The menu changes weekly and offers traditional dishes alongside contemporary cuisine. The centerpiece of the café is the HALLE Bar with an abundant array of drinks. In summer, the spacious terrace adjacent to the café-restaurant and outdoor seating near the entrance to the Kunsthalle Wien and Halle E+G offer the perfect vantage point for getting to know and watching the goings-on at one of the world’s largest cultural complexes.
Formerly a winter riding hall with an imperial viewing box, the historic setting was adapted by architect Gregor Eichinger and his group EOK into a modern café-restaurant. The splendid stucco decoration and remarkably lofty ceilings create the perfect frame for a perfectly attuned interior: oversized ceiling lamps, banquettes upholstered in various shades of olive, walnut tables, and a floor-to-ceiling shelving unit, likewise in walnut, that also functions as a room divider between the kitchen and café-restaurant. The space offers minimalist design with a feelgood factor.
The venue is run by Bernd Schlacher from the Austrian province of Styria. He also manages the restaurant Motto am Fluss and the company Motto Catering.
Since reopening in May 2018, the café at mumok has a new fresh and timeless look, inviting you to relax and take a break before or after your museum visit.

The Glacis Beisl building was designed by Arkan Zeytinoglu, combining the look of a traditional Viennese Beisl (pub) with modern elements. The overall impression is created by dark wood combined with absinthe-green Resopal tabletops and a poured terrazzo floor, integrating the tradition of an authentic Beisl into the urban environment. The garden with its secluded bower under tall nut trees is a highlight in summer.
