The Viennese coffeehouse culture plays an important role in Austrian history with some of them dating back to the 1800s!
Café Sperl was just a few minutes walk from my hotel and I would definitely recommend it. Founded in 1880. The décor was vintage and elegant with a selection of booth seating around the edges of the room and small tables and chairs in the centre. Dark parquet flooring, marble tables and crystal chandeliers add to the ambiance.
I ordered a ‘Café Latte’ and the ‘Viennese Apple Strudel’. The apple strudel was honestly the best I’ve ever tasted.
