Vienna's Generation Café

Welcome to Vollpension aka Vienna's Generation Café

Coffeehouses and the culture around it, is synonymous with Vienna. A 'Kaffeehaus' is an oasis of Gemütlichkeit, a place where the Viennese have been spending time to meet, read and think since 1685 (when the Ottomans left a bag of coffee beans in Vienna).

Since the opening of Vollpension, only a stone’s throw from the famous Naschmarkt, the Viennese coffeehouse is also a social enterprise fighting old age poverty. The four co-founders created a space where seniors can actively get involved in our society with a meaningful activity, find self-empowerment and increase their disposable income by 40 percent on average by doing what they do best: baking cakes. Half of the team are older than 60! Vollpension also creates a dialogue between young and old – because eating (homemade cake) brings people together.

When the pandemic hit, from one day to the other Vollpension had to shut its doors. In full Vollpension-style the owners launched the online platform 'BakAdemy' with on-demand and live baking courses. Via Zoom, grandmas and grandpas teach 'BakAdemics' everything they need to know to bake their favourite cake when grandma is not handy.


With their latest campaign 'Bake Against Poverty', Vollpension wants to raise global awareness for the increasing issues old people face - not only during the COVID-19 pandemic. Grandmas and grandpas from all over the world (even from Australia!) are invited to apply and share their favourite recipes and connect with younger generations.
