I was tipped about Cafe Central by my Dad, it was worth the visit and for sure one of the best places in Vienna, Austria.
A light and almost familiar mood with all you can expect from a classic Austrian Konditorei starting with amazing classic interiors, nice waitresses -patient enough to rookie german speakers- with brilliant guidance in case of the very common “I want every single cake confusion” and lots of local people.
Cafe Central is not just a Konditorei, it’s a nice restaurant also. I was there just to get a coffee and a piece of cake but I ended up ordering an entire meal -from appetizer to dessert-, all of this after just a couple of hours of having breakfast!
But the one thing I remember the most is the counter!, filled with so different cakes and viennoaseries. I literally stood in front of it for several minutes just contemplating the cakes assortment, the wonderful colors and the deep feeling I had because I was in the country where the long tradition of patisserie and baking had it’s origins.
