Legendary Sacher

In Sacher Cafe we had the best Sacher cake of our visit in Vienna. You may have to wait to be seated.

The "Sacher Torte" you get here is different (better) than what we have had before at other locations. Amazing people watching, as people in coat and tails and long dresses are dropped off by Audi limos to attend the opera performance.

It took us a fair amount of time and standing in line to get it. Hyped up by a lot of tour guides and hence probably has the wait. The food was served in good time, and food was creditable but very expensive.

Eating Sacher Torte at the Hotel Sacher is a bucket-list item for many travelers, and I looked forward to the experience myself. Unfortunately, the whole food experience was disappointing. The wait staff was hurried and inattentive, the tables were dirty and in poor working condition, and the food was average. A hot dog masquerading as Sacher sausage for 11 Euros... More

Well, if you're in Vienna, you've got to have Sachertorte in the Cafe Sacher. We sat outside - service was excellent, fast and friendly - unusual for Vienna!

Because it is must see place, we orderd a slice of cacher, for 5 euros, I think. Nice, but really nothing special.

One definately feels special here! We had apfel strudel and Sacher coffee and both were delicious. It wasn't cheap but nothing is in Vienna! Service was good and friendly. Toured the hotel lobby which is so elegant . You can purchase their chocolates and tarts from their shop next door.

Enjoyed the 'must-do' experience of a Sacher Torte for two is this amazing historical cafe! If you are in Vienna you simply have to go here- 5/5

It has the famous name. You have to try the cake, but it is nothing too special. You can sit and look over the opera house and people watch there.

Many years ago, Sacher was the THE place to go for its unique chocolate cake upon which it built a world-wide reputation. This Café became a landmark and tourists flocked to its terrace. Unfortunateley, today the Sacher Cake is dry and flaky, probably produced in a plant by the hundreds to feed tha hungry and naive tourists. The Terrace itself... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
