The coffee house for generations

Where are the best cakes between Vienna and Tokyo? Of course at your grandma’s place. The idea is to bring the generations nearer to each other.

2. Gerstner K.u.K. Hofzuckerbäcker

Imperial Confectioner

Get in and be heartily welcome! Explore the sweet temptations and glance at the masterful hands making up the most magnificent masterpieces day for day. With only the most exclusive ingredients and passion in its highest form Gerstner creates excellent confectionery since the establishment of this company by Anton and Barbara Gerstner nearly 170 years ago. In the past Gerstner provided the imperial court with its products, and today, among others, Gerstner supplies institutions such as Vienna State Opera, Vienna Music Society and Hofburg VIENNA.

3. Café Sacher Wien

The Institution

The quintessential Austrian café in the heart of Vienna: A must for every visitor. Café Sacher Vienna offers the perfect chance to sample a typical Viennese coffee-house atmosphere and – of course – to treat yourself to an Original Sacher-Torte.

4. Café Central

Meeting place of historic open-minded thinker

As the name suggests, Café Central is the real centre of Vienna – not St. Stephen’s Cathedral. The entrance to this coffee and cake lovers’ paradise is on the corner of Herrengasse and Strauchgasse in the first district. The city’s best-known sights and museums and its most exclusive shopping streets – Graben and Kärntner Strasse – are all within easy walking distance.

5. Balthasar Kaffee Bar

Cool and good coffee

The modern version of a coffee house is here to find at Balthasar. A mixture of coffee house and caffeine. Small snacks and cakes included.
