Now and future: for those of you wandering what we are doing after the munchies cafe: pretty much more of what we already did before. Just that our main focus is now on the art world. Dominique Foertig founded the gallery and artist platform Munchies art club and Ernst Koslitsch is there where he always belonged – in his studio doing what he loves most being an ARTIST!

Munchies art club or platform Vienna is online since end of April 2020 and we are excited to present young talents from the arts, great exhibitions from Austria and abroad and collaborations with galleries. Ernst koslitsch new website, was also one of our projects. In the meantime Ernst had a solo show at the gallery Raum mit licht called We have to move the island and he participated at this years Art Brussels 2020.

If you you want to learn more, or reconnect with us visit our Munchies Art club or follow us on Instagram , or check out Ernst digital studio. Our old Cafe in Währing, is now our workspace. Munchies art club office and ernst koslitsch studio, together working in a space so full of memories inspiration and community. We want that again, just on a totally different sphere.

December 31st, 2018 we finally did, what we felt we needed to do, we ended the era of our much loved Cafe, 12 munchies.

The Cafe is gone. We on the other hand are still there. For a short time, we wanted to pass on the Munchies. Finally, we realized how much we loved the place and decided to keep the space. The area around the Aumannplatz, full of lovely neighbors, friends and family.

Which ever paths we end up following, we want it to happen here. Its a place with good vibes. Its always sunny.

Cool in Summer and warm and cozy in winter. The Building where our space is, is full of really wonderful people, many now good friends.

We are working on quite a few different projects at the moment. Hopefully we will be more present in our space 2020.

For now and in future, this will be our main platform of communication. Here we want to share all kinds of things. Art, food, travel, stories, events, workshops, exhibitions and all things to do with our district. We think there will be something of interest for everyone, enjoy.

Thank you for your support.


Here we thank Anna from the Backraum, who gave us our first official job! After the opening we met Robert from POC Cafe and that was our second client.

We thank our amazing Blogger friend Madeleine Alizadeh „Daria Daria“ and we thank H.Hanna and Alexandra Palla who were among the first to write highly of us. 

We thank Florian Holzer who wrote such wonderful things about us. We thank Horst Felzl and the new owner of Bäckerei Felzl,  we thank Alexander Mairinger. We thank Eric our neighbor who always lent a helping hand when we needed one. Frau Mühlberger the owner of our location

We are thankful for our neighbors. First our dearly missed neighbour Andreas Greitbauer and then the lovely Marktweiber girls Susanne and Michi. We are thankful for all the wonderful people we met through the 12 munchies Cafe. We are thankful for all the love. 

Eight years are now over and it is time for something different. So step one as we don’t have the Cafe anymore as a form of contact, we need a new source of communication. What we always wanted to do but never had the time for, a website.

A website about the district, our city, its people, us, our trips, recipes, ideas, art projects, workshops, etc.

So check out our blog and there you will surely find something of interest.

One of the many things we wanted to do but never ended up doing, was a website. I guess, one of the main reasons was, that we discovered a very simple and free form of communication our 12 Munchies Facebook Page and Instagram 12 Munchies.

Rhabarber-Galette-12 Munchies

We want to give this website a try. See where this leads us. Our goal is to keep you interested. We hope you partake on this Journey with us.

 As many other ideas, the project website was pushed aside for the lack of energy and time. The 12 munchies Cafe was a lot of fun, but also extremely time consuming. Now, that the Cafe is closed, time is finally at our disposal again.

We did this on our own, so we will develop as we go. We have learned so much about web design that that alone was worth it.


Over the last 8 years as the Munchies, we were so much more than a place where people came to drink coffee, eat cake and sandwiches

12 munchies cafe game changer in Vienna, the best places in Vienna

Here we want to inform you on events, places to eat and drink. Where to shop and how to get the best out of this city and other unexpected things we have enjoyed together. We want you to participate here and in our former cafe.

We were a meeting point in our district for like minded. This should not end just because there is no more cafe. We want to connect with you through our social media pages.

We were a place of information, connecting, helping, advising.  Our guests were friends or family, who connected with us and each other.

A space where all kinds of events will be taking place. Ernst and I want to continue being together with you just not in a form of a cafe. We care about all of you and look forward to connecting with you again after our absence.
