A cup of coffee and a piece of Sachertorte..

...who knows how much this would cost at Cafe Sacher??

( I am just wondering if it is the same price range as Cafe Florian in Venice?)

Thanks for taking your time to answer,

Depends which coffee you choose, but I guess about €9.

Should be quite a bit less expensive than Florian in Venice, but you don't get the orchestra playing Viennese music here in Vienna...

I'd consider a different nice café as Sacher is really very touristy. Personally, I'd prefer Mozart just around the corner or Demel or Oberlaa.

The cakes in Gerstner or Central are much better. And Aida is cheaper. And yummiest of all is Gregors, but that's in the 5th district, so you have to make a special pilgrimage http://www.gregors-konditorei.at/

Another favourite of mine is Heiner, on Kärntnerstraße or even cosier on Wollzeile.

Thanks so much to all of you for you most welcome input. It will be our first visit to Vienna but we will have only limited time. So we want to do very special things - and having a cup great coffee and enjoying a piece of Sachertorte seems to be one of them. So you gave me some options - and I will se how they will fit into our

plans.

Demel and Hotel Sacher have fought for decades over which place invented the Sachertorte. As mentioned above, Hotel Sacher is very over-touristed; Demel, great atmosphere (be sure to eat upstairs and check out the kitchens as you go up the stairs); buy the candied violets as a nice gift. Try both locations and see what you think.

I have to say, though, that by far, the best cafe to enjoy a piece of cake (yes, they have Sachertorte too) is Cafe Central. Their cake display is pilgrimmage-worthy.

Thank you Cherries. After much research (prompted by you), Cafe Central has just made my list of "Vienna Musts". It has been added to the list.

Now for September to hurry.
