Vienna has an international reputation for its food, coffee and beer

Café Drechsler – Traditional Coffee House Meets New Design

Viennese love their coffee houses. Not only to drink real good coffee, but also to just sit somewhere, let time pass by, chat with friends or ponder about the meaning of life as so many famous Viennese artists, philosophers or doctors have done before (for example Ernst Freud, Arthur Schnitzler or Hugo von Hofmannsthal). The Café Drechsler is right next to the Naschmarkt and has been one of those famous institutions since 1919, but recently got a modern twist to it. If you’re not sure what to order, try going with a Melange (coffee with milk) and one of the delicious deserts you can pick from the display desk.

Schöne Perle – Viennese Specialites and Vegetarian Dishes

You probably have heard of the famous Viennese Sacher chocolate cake, but have you heard of the Susi Torte? A delicious cake made of pure Lindt chocolate well worth the trip. Be aware, it’s highly addictive. The menu also offers fine Viennese cuisine, such as Wiener Schnitzel, Tafelspitz and a great selection of vegetarian dishes. The restaurant is decorated in traditional way with a modern twist to it and there is an extra room for smokers as well.

Salm Bräu – Hearty Food And Beer Until You Drop

Numerous homemade beer specialties and traditional Viennese dishes just like the famous Wiener Schnitzel, Tafelspitz (boiled beef in broth with horseradish and side dishes) or apple strudel with a Melange (coffee with milk). If you feel like a walk after having eaten here we can recommend the attached park of the Schloss Belvedere. It’s beautiful to walk around and you could even pop in the museum and pay Gustav Klimt’s most famous painting “The Kiss” a visit.

The Salm Bräu also takes reservations from larger groups up to 120 people in their cosy wine cellar. You can even order buffet.
