About

We were lucky to find each other without looking for each other. We are three young people who share a dream and a strong idea of the place we want to work at. A place where we can put our talents and passions to use and share them with a lot of people. Weiss is that place. We hope you will like it as well.

Milena Broger

grew up in the Bregenzerwald valley, east of Bregenz. A passionate, adventurous and bold chef who follows her dreams: through internships in Japan, Italy and Denmark or by leading the kitchen at Restaurant Klösterle in Zug/Lech am Arlberg, Austria for four years, which earned her 15 points and two Gault Millau toques and made her one of the youngest top chefs in all German-speaking countries.

History

The house, located on Anton-Schneider-Straße 5 in Bregenz, Austria, has a long-standing tradition as a restaurant/café. Under various names (Neubeck, Füxl, Bistro etc.) and, from 1926 to 1980, Café Weiss, it served as a personal and cosy space with an urban touch, welcoming people from near and far, locals and visitors and cultural tourists. Now Weiss comes back as Weiss, and again there’s that personal, cosy, urban touch. Don’t you like things coming full circle?
