A legendary Cake - Sacher Café
Café Sacher is an obvious highlight on anyone’s travel itinerary in Vienna. But don’t be fooled, despite its international fame and success, your experience at Sacher will be one-of-a-kind. The Café and Hotel were founded over a century ago and have since made their name as Austria’s finest. The Original Sachertorte has of course contributed to their great acclaim, and there is no better place to enjoy a piece than at the Café Sacher itself. The coffeehouse is simply stunning with its ornately decorated walls and ceiling and shimmering chandeliers. Just sit down in one of the comfortable booths and order your own slice of heaven. After having a taste of the Sachertorte, you won’t doubt that it was first created for a prince.
Vienna = Sacher Torte
I was in Austria for 8 hours between Bangkok and Tirana and there was only one thing I wanted to eat - the famous Torte. Despite me looking like a drowned rat when I ran out of the rain, I was treated with as much courtesy and respect as the delicacy on the plate in front of me. With creme, simply brilliant. You can even order online!
