Breakfast is my ultimate meal. I am one of those people who could eat breakfast three times a day. I am” mildly” obsessed with starting the day off right with a bowl of something. Be it cereal, oatmeal, or muesli, or if I have extra time- eggs, pancakes or french toast.
While some people are happy to eat breakfast at the hotel and get their day of exploration underway, when I travel, breakfast is part of my exploration process. You don’t have to ask me twice to forfeit the hotel menu, unless of course the hotel is known for its breakfast menu. I tend to integrate breakfast AND city exploration into my travel itinerary.
On my recent trip to Vienna, I decided to check out Corns n’ Pops (Gumpendorfer strasse 37,Vienna’s 6th district by Saint Charles Alimentary), a cute breakfast cafe focused on serving interesting combinations of cereals and muesli! This place had to be good, right?
Corns n’ Pops has a great menu where you can choose from a pre-mixed muesli or a mix your own concoction from their show-stopping, rather extensive cereal-muesli-goodies counter. They also offer snacks, sweets, smoothies, coffee, tea and Ben and Jerry’s ice cream (a nice breakfast accompaniment!).
On the day I visited, I was unfortunately in a bit of a rush and did not have time to mix my own muesli at the bar so I went with their daily muesli special. The muesli was dense, not overly sweet (they brought honey to the table to self-sweeten) and full of good things like poppy seeds, dried fruit, nuts oats and topped with lots of fresh fruit. I would have liked to try mixing my own creative bowl but that will have to wait for my next trip to Corns n’ Pops (which I hope will be soon).
I was so inspired by the poppy seeds in my muesli, when I came home I added poppy seeds into my batch of granola.
