Before heading to Vienna do one thing, toss the diet. The Austrian capital offers some of the most amazing calorie-laden cakes and not just that, they even top their coffees with whipped cream. Here are our top five spots for Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake) in Vienna.
You can’t go to Vienna without ordering the original Sacher Torte at Café Sacher. The famed Viennese specialty was invented in 1832 and is one of the finest chocolate cakes you’ll ever get to try.
Philharmoniker Str. 4
The historic Café Central is a true Viennese institution housed in the beautiful Palais Ferstel. The cake display is jam packed with tantalising creations; authentic apple strudel and Vienna Schnitzel are also on the menu – making it hard to pick between sweet and savoury.
Corner Strauchgasse / Herrengasse
Fett und Zucker
Literally translated Fat and Sugar - the café is super quirky and styled with retro pieces, the offerings are versatile (vegan options are plenty) and the menu is absolutely delicious. We are totally in love with the vegan brownies covered in peanut butter and the apple crumble.
You can just about guess what they are creating in the open kitchen at CupCakes. The bright-white interior is broken up with fuchsia accents and decorated with pink flowers giving us those fairytale feels. Colourful cupcakes are a-plenty, guaranteed to curb any craving.
Josefstädter Straße 17
L. Heiner Café (K.u.K. Hofzuckerbäcker)
With a title that loosely translates to ‘baker to the royals’, you can count on getting some of the finest treats in town. From chocolates, cakes and the traditional coffee with whipped cream, this is a calorie heaven – in the best way possible.
Kaerntner Strasse 21-23
