    Out of Time at Cafe Hawelka

    This place has been open - and unchanged - since WW2. My last visit was in '97 and I was afraid that the owners wouldn't still be with us be because they were well into their 80s then. Now into their 90s they're still running the place. They should be granted eternal life just to keep it going - there's a unique atmosphere here... the walls seem to echo the conversations of the last half century!

    The Demel Conditorei

    This pastry shop was founded in 1785, then it was in Michaelerpaltz. The patissier Christoph Demel acquired the business in 1857 and it moved to its present position in 1888. It still has the imperial patent K.U.K. Hof- Zuckerbacker on the shop front. The little rooms are beautifully decorated in an ornate late 19th century style. It is a bit expensive but lovely to see so I think it could be a treat after a long morning of sightseeing.
    sorry but I have to replace my old photos next visit!
    open daily 10.00 until 19.00

    Any of the famous cafes, but you absolutely must go to Cafe Central and Cafe Landtmann.
    Almost as famous as its music, Vienna is home to coffee houses. They are an experience in themself. You can hang out there all day and no one minds. While the actual coffee is a bit overpriced, the experience of sitting where Sigmund Freud once sat and philosphised is worth the visit. They serve some food and most types of alcohol.

    Everybody likes Sacher Torte but my favourite is Apfelstrudel with finest coffees of Vienna.
    Those are my hands:)
