Dark wooden panelling, crystal chandeliers, and the smell of coffee make this Viennese-style café a meeting point for intellectuals, artists, and students. International newspapers and magazines are available, as is a variety of cakes, pastries and meals. Wrong city of course, but it feels like a scene from "The Third Man." You can have breakfast any time of day, or choose a meal from the daily menu. A typical small dish to sample is Kasnocken (cheese dumplings
with brown butter); more substantial choices might include traditional boiled beef. Enjoy your cappuccino with live piano accompaniment every Sunday from October to April. In summer, there's also terrace seating.
