Must visit for a cake that is over 100 years old

The famous cafe sacher and its sacher-torte, chocolate cake with fudge with apricot jam and whipped cream Cake was good. It was bitter and sweet cause they use different kind of chocolate. It wasn't great but want dry or hard. Cake was only 5 euros which I expected to be a lot more. Breakfast... read more

This experience was very average. I expected the cake to be moist, but the whipped cream was the only thing moist. The restaurant seating was very crowded and the wait staff were running like mad. I sat at the bar to watch all the action. People come here, like me, because of the reputation, but I would much rather eat... More

Difficult to imagine going to Vienna without visiting one of her legendary coffee houses. We chose Cafe Sacher and were not disappointed. Gorgeously luxurious and worth every penny - 2 summer salads, glass of prosecco and a beer followed by a slice of the legendary Sacher torte (the lightest of chocolate cakes with just a hint of apricot) and a...

I was so looking forward to boast the Sacher Torte for my son to taste. It was not what I remembered, and the cafe is very touristy now. The young waiter was not helpful, and seemed a bit bothered when we asked for Iced Americano Coffee. He brought a coffee desert instead. It was more like a frappachino with whip... More

Had the famous Sachertorte but perhaps I was unlucky. It was dry and wasn't particularly special. With an espresso that came to nearly 11 euros. A lot for vey little. Interesting looking cafe though.

The famous Hotel Sacher and its Cafe Sacher has been serving up its famous Sacher- Torte since 1832 and is said to be perhaps the best chocolate cake in the world. I must say that this cake is amazing!!! The service was wonderful and because we went at about 10:30 p.m. after attending a concert at the Vienna Opera house... More

The Sacher torte is outstanding. It's a must-eat when in Wienn, not only for its History, but also for the exquisite, balanced taste. A slice served with whipped cream should set you back around 6 euros, but it's well worth it. The service is nothing more than average.

We queued as expected for our stool and table. Service was very slow due to understaffing and tables were left dirty. The moment came when the cake and sacher coffee eventually arrived..... Fanfare! Oh no! The cake was dry and the coffee only half filled the mug. Disappointing.

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.
