A Guide to Vienna’s Most Iconic Cafe

If you’re in Vienna, visiting the city’s most iconic cafe should be at the top of your to-do list. The Sacher Cafe, located on the Kärntner Strasse, is one of the most beloved restaurants in all of Austria and serves up delicious cakes, desserts, pastries and more in an ornate, old-world setting. One thing to keep in mind before you head over to this world famous eatery is that they do not accept credit cards and are closed on Sundays and public holidays.

Not Your Typical Starbucks

The last thing you would anticipate upon entering Vienna’s Cafe Central is that you are really inside a cafe. You’re far more likely to see oneself in a regal hall with expensive tables and fine linens. Perhaps this is the point—it appears to be a relic from another era. It was one of the few places in Vienna where intellectuals could meet for coffee without fear of Nazi surveillance.
This was also one of Karl Marx’s favorite spots, so it has some historical significance as well.
The restaurant has been renovated many times, but still keeps its classic Viennese character, complete with paintings by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele on the wall and beautiful wood furnishings.

The inside of Cafe Central is as as beautiful as it is to eat there. Ironically, the coffee there tastes like frosting on a cake that has previously been excellent. It is absolutely outstanding. Speaking of cake, this café embodies all that makes Vienna special: artistically created sweets. In this ethereal restaurant, cake lovers will be in their element! All of the desserts are beautifully made and served with whipped cream and fruit. If you’re not into cake or if you’re looking for a more savory dish, they have those too! The menu includes Viennese-style sandwiches and quiche Lorraine that is so good your taste buds will jump out of your mouth in joy.
