Food: It sustains us and gives us life... literally. Speaking figuratively and realistically, food is one of those things that has this amazing power to bring us up, cheer up our day, and make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside (especially when followed by a hot toddy). So what's even better than that feeling? Eating delicious food with an even more delicious view. It's possible, and we know exactly where to get it.

The 20 locations below have been carefully chosen based on their food-beauty to landscape-beauty ratio, and we're confident that each one is nothing short of perfect. While we can't be held responsible for the hefty wanderlust and potential hanger that comes from scoping this article, we'll definitely take responsibility for you booking your next trip, ASAP. Ready your suitcase, because that day-old sammie sitting in the office fridge just won't cut it after these photos.

19 Bräu Gasthof: Traditional Austrian Food With A Frosty Landscape

Even a simple breakfast of fruit and scrambled eggs is enough with a view such as this one, overlooking the mountains that Austria is so well-known for. However, Bräu Gasthof also offers a much more traditional menu so that you won't miss out on all that Austrian cuisine has to offer.

18 Panoramic 34: Afternoon Tea With A Wide-Lense View Of London

For those who skip out on breakfast, we feel bad for you... Because it means missing an opportunity to have some of London's best pastries with a view over most of the city. The enticing idea of flawless latte art alone is enough for us to start searching Google for the cheapest flights there, and don't get us started on that jam and cream.

17 Pierchic: Literally Eating Over Perfectly Aquamarine Waters

Pierchic is a popular destination for travelers spending time in Dubai, and it's easy to see why. With stunning gourmet desserts that are plated like a piece of artwork belonging in a museum, this is a must-do. The food is unparalleled, but the view — especially at night — can be very romantic.

16 Schilthorn Piz Gloria: Quite The Opposite, It's Like Eating In The Sky

We can't think of a better place to eat charcuterie than at Schilthorn Piz Gloria, which is likely the closest you'll get to eating atop a mountain... without wearing 30lbs of winter climbing gear.

15 The Rock: No, We Don't Mean The Wrestler... It's Literally On A Rock

If you were to look at this restaurant from the beach, you'd think it was literally just a shack built on top of, well, a rock.

14 Asiate: The Perfect Way To Take In Central Park From Above

New York City is a tough one because one short stroll through Midtown can have tourists choosing between at least five different rooftop bars, each offering their own unique city view.

13 Dasheene: The View Is Perfectly Situated Between Two Mountains

Some of the best views come from restaurants that are part of resorts, and Dasheene is one of them.

12 Nepenthe Restaurant: Set Against One Of The Most Perfect Backdrops In The US

9 Giraffe Manor: Dining With Wildlife Was Never So Much Fun

When we talk about food with a 'view', we don't always mean sultry nightscapes or ocean waves. Sometimes, we mean a view that can only be experienced to be believed, and that's exactly the case at Giraffe Manor. Yes, real giraffes eat with you. No, we can't guarantee your lunch will be safe.

8 Mercury Bay Estate: Wine, Food Parings, And New Zealand's Beauty

7 Kapari Natural Resort: Cliffside Dining That's Not For The Faint Of Heart

Yet another resort with a view you'll never have anywhere else, Karpari is Santorini's gem. The entire resort overlooks the Aegean Sea, but it's the restaurant, in particular, where you can lean back, take it all in, and snack on some of Greece's most traditional (and utterly sinful) foods.

6 Soneva Kiri: We Guarantee You've Never Had Food Delivered Via Zipline

For the adventurous few, don't worry — we've got you covered, too.

Servers will zip line their way down to you as you take in the sights (and heights) from a platform.

5 Sky Restaurant 634: Tokyo Never Looked So Glamourous

When it comes to Tokyo, and any city, for that matter, the higher up, the better the view. While most cities are overwhelming (in a good way) from street-level, there's something about being stories above everything else.
