Hi, it’s me Marimonda!
Today, I’d like to introduce you café sacher, probably the most famous coffee shop in Vienna, Austria. Yesterday I posted a review of Figlmuller, a schnitzel place in Vienna (to see my previous post, click here). In this post, I continue reviews of restaurants in Vienna. Located in the center of the city, this place would be a paradise for dessert lovers. Once you step in, you would smell sweet, which will make you happy right away.
Café sacher is a very classical place. Red velvet sofas make here like a upscale salon. The cafe is full of people, but it’s not noisy, so I could relaxed and chilled out.
Menu and Service
You can find all types of coffees here (except iced coffee, overall it’s hard to find an iced coffee in European countries). Their signature sacher torta is a must item. When I saw the cake, I thought it was very small. However, after tasting it, I changed my mind. Since it’s very sweet (personally, too sweet), it may difficult to have one whole piece by oneself. We were a group of four people and we ordered two sacher tortas, one tea, two coffees, and one aperol.
The cake was served with whipping cream on its side and the cream went really well with the torta. As I mentioned above, the cake was really sweet with rich chocolate flavor. If you are tired and have a long day, a bite of this cake will wake you up and give you energy right away!
You can find the original sacher in different cities such as salzburg, graz, and innsbruck. I haven’t been to other places, but I am pretty sure the quality of the cake will be the same. For drinks it costs about € 5~9 and the original sacher torta is €7.5. Alcoholic beverages are a bit more expensive, thus you can set up your budget about €13~20 per person. It’s expensive, but you shouldn’t miss it when you visit Vienna.
Happy travel with Marimonda! See you soon 🙂
