“Sweet home”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Staying in Vienna, don't miss to visit L. Heiner sweet house in Kärntnerstraße 21-23. It is one of the best places with melting cakes and sweets. The staff is friendly and helpful and the service is really fast. The place is like from Agatha Christie's period, large and with lots of light, small tables and cozy atmosphere. You can really relax after visiting Albertina or shopping in the main street, sitting in front of large glasses on the first floor, enjoying murmur, hidden from the crowded street. I warmly recommend Topfenknödel mit Zwetschkenröster followed by black tea. Experience true Vienna! Be aware that L. Heiner works till 19.30 every day.

“Excellent for coffee cake and chocolates”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Near Stephensplatz a lovely shop window full of lovely cakes. Very narrow downstairs but much larger upstairs. Can be busy but there are lots of tables - some very code together. Service is excellent and it's not expensive. On the way out check out the handmade chocolates, they are delicious!

“Dazzling sweets!!!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

The cakes are beautifully displayed in the shop's window! Actually I visited the one located in Kärntner Straße and its upstairs tea room has a cozy, romantic decor with floral wallpaper and waitresses dressed in countryside outfits. Enjoyed having a double espresso with Esterhazy, an Austrian walnut cake which came on a beautiful china plate! Highly recommended for a well deserved afternoon break!!!

“Perfect bakery with which to escape the city”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

One of the best bakeries in the city. Superb range on the menu, all for below average price for this part of town. Knew it was a find when the clientele turned out to be predominantly locals. Decor and service are in traditional vein, with pleasant servers in petty coats and long socks. The cakes and coffee were delicious!

“Just the ticket!!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Loved this placed and visited twice. Away from the tourists it was like stepping into paradise. Quiet and just the ticket after a long days journey around the city. We tried several cakes including the truffeltorte and the maripankartoffen. DELICIOUS!! They do a reasonably priced breakfast and the coffee was amongst the best I had. I am a coffee buff!
