Fodor's Review

Made famous by its illustrious guests, the Café Central is right up there with Florian's in Venice. With soaring ceiling and gigantic columns giving it the look of an apse strayed from St. Stephen's, Café Central provided a rather sumptuous home-away-from-home for Leon Trotsky, who mapped out the Russian Revolution here beneath portraits of the Imperial family. There is more than the standard café fare here, with the kitchen serving up salmon fillet sprinkled with roasted pine nuts; or try the Mohr im hemd for dessert, chocolate hazelnut cake dusted with powdered sugar and served with hot chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Piano music fills the marble pillared hall in the afternoon; it can get packed with tourists, but it's worth the crowds.
