Vienna

Sweet obsession

more than a year ago

Probably in no other city would you find such mind-boggling variety of savoury cakes, cookies, chocolates, nougats, marzipans and baked goods. Few other places in the world would have locals choosing to eat a sweet dish as a main course for dinner.
Pastry and confections are as quintessential to Vienna as St. Stephan’s Cathedral or the waltz. Craving some sweet fix for lunch? Try a slice of the famous Apfelstrudl apple pie. What’s for dinner? How about some Kaiserschmarrn - sliced pancakes served with sugar powder, cinnamon and plum jam?
Even if you don’t have a sweet tooth, you are almost certain to grow one in Vienna. And while you won’t have to walk more than a block or two before you run into another place that will tempt you to compromise on your cholesterol, the venues that you shouldn’t miss are Gerstner K.U.K Hofzuckerbäcker, K.U.K Konditorei L. Heiner, Manner and Kurkonditorei Oberlaa.
