Learn about Viennese coffee culture in a 19th century caféViennese coffee culture is world-famous. Try your hand at ordering a coffee in the historic Café Sperl (founded in 1880). Sugar junkies will enjoy an "intermezzo" a concoction combining coffee, chocolate and whipped cream, while traditionalists looking for their daily shot of caffeine will be contented with a double mocha--similar to a double shot of espresso. A classic and a winner across the board is the Melange, a frothy, creamy coffee with milk.
Café Sperl also serves snacks and cakes, but I didn't try any. Per local custom, a glass of crystal clear Austrian tap water is served with your coffee and lingering is encouraged.
