Food Scene
Racer‘s cafe, restaurant, bar www.racerscafe.at (Gewerbezeile 2a) is next door - max a 5 minute walk away. Open all day, it's really popular. You can have anything from breakfast, lunch, dinner to just a coffee or drink there. Food served is simple, good (i like their salads, but they also have (so i heard) great burgers, pizza in the evening) and the staff is friendly. Ask for their non-smoking areas if you're bothered by the smoke.

Check out this new place called Sägewerk and build your own salad, waffles, pizza, pasta, burger. You can walk or drive there, it's by the Cineplexx movie theater. 8 min walk. Maria-Gailer-Strasse 39 http://www.diebausatzlokale.at/saegewerk-villach-desktop/ Mostly for dinner only as they open after 16:00 hrs, except for weekends, where you can have lunch too. Saturdays and Sundays open after 12:00 noon and all night. The good thing is they're there EVERY DAY including holidays. That's rare in this part of the world.

Sightseeing
The heart of Villach. Medieval downtown with a slanted main square. Gotta love the good old-Europe-feeling. Go for a Glühwein and enjoy the Christmas Market. Mhhh.
