The Cafe Mitte is the place to be in Graz if you are into club atmosphere within a bar-coffee shop fusion. The Cafe Mitte is located in the old town of Graz, right in the center of Graz, as the name “Mitte” already suggests for those of you who know German. For those who don’t: Mitte = Center.
And in the background it plays club music loud and unambiguously, making it a little hard to have deep conversations. That’s the corner by the way:
That’s a view into the main room of the Cafe Mitte:
The staff is friendly and the Cafe has free WiFi and plugs depending where you sit. This cool Cafe has long opening hours, closing every day not before 01:00 and Saturdays and Sundays not before 02:00. On the corner the bartender will make you “whatever” your heart is longing for or at least trying his best to do so.
So this is what I got:
As you see above I took a “Thronprinz” Cider as a side dish, after having skipped the main dish 😀 And as the sign goes, here they serve the coffee in different ways as you might be used to.
Here you see the huge wooden table with iron inlays way better:
By the way “Thronprinz” in German is a pun, a variant of “Kronprinz”, which means crown prince. So Thronprinz is an already sitting crown prince, not waiting anymore for becoming what he is longing for.
They do have cakes, tarts and stuff here, and real Thai food as well, since they cook for you. And this all you can have while sitting on sofas or vintage chairs as you see above and below.
The Bottom Line: The Cafe Mitte, located in Freiheitsplatz 2, in 8010 Graz, is a great and fancy bar-coffee shop with coffee, cakes & tarts, as well as real Thai food for those who are hungry and offering all the things a bar usually offers. The long opening hours until 01:00 (am) and on Fridays and Saturdays even till 02:00 (am) together with great club music and nice and comfortable sofa-lounge atmosphere you sit in Cafe Mitte very princely.
