  • Take a coffee with Freud:Café Landtmann

    by cristiana04 Written Aug 19, 2005

    This place was opened in 1873 and it is consider one of the most famous and traditional cafés in Vienna. Sigmund Freud was frequently having his coffee here. This is a very nice and charming place to spend some hours during lazy evening day during the summer!!

    HAVELKA
    Very old cafe at the center, inside of the cafe is like nothing change for years.
    The Avustrian Coffee House tradition is known for its tolerance, freedom of mind (5 different language newspapers available).
    It is open until late hours and it is worth to taste night cakes.
    Speciality of the house:Mrs.Haweka's Buchteln (hot small buns filled with jam).

    Dist: 1 Dortheer Gasse 6

    Sacher Torte at Sacher Hotel

    by Polly74 Written Aug 25, 2004

    Sacher Hotel is one of the most famous place in Vienna.
    In Sacher Café the famous Sacher Torte is served, but you can find it also in other Konditorei (Bakeries) around the city.

    This famous cake was at the heart of a controversy in Austria for six years. It seems some Austrians took their baking so seriously that an argument over what constituted a true Sacher Torte erupted and had to be decided in court. In the early 1800's, the Congress of Vienna ruled on the matter. It decided that the true Sacher Torte was made of two chocolate cake layers separated by apricot jam with a chocolate glaze over the top and sides of the cake. Justice was served!!

    My suggestion is to try Konditorei Alida, next to St Stephens Dom, wher you can choose among a lot of marvellous cakes.
    It was our daily meeting point, just to taste new cakes, dinking a coffee and be ready again to walk around!
