non-smoking cafes/restaurants-Vienna & Salzburg

Non-smoking is a hard find in Austria. It may be simply a statement that "nobody seems to be smoking over there" to an actual small separate room. Our best experiences on a just-completed trip follow.
Vienna cafes. Cafe Schwarzenberg is on the Schwarzenberg Platz. A separate mirrored room is on the left and is completely non-smoking. At noon the sun streams in tne windows at the end of the room and can be a bit much so try to get Herr Ober to put uou in the shade. On Wollzeile just off the Stephansdom Platz, there are two cafes with separate non-smoking rooms: Cafe L Heiner has a small room just to the right as you enter with about ten tables while Cafe Diglas has two small rooms to the left and in back as you enter. After you leave Cafe Diglas, go to the right about one block and there is a tiny candy store with the best dark chocolate truffles in Vienna.
Dinner was another matter. We ate one night at Boheme (Spittelbergasse 19) and they created a small non-smoking section in an alcove near the bar. Lots of opera on the musak and excellent food.
In Salzburg, we found two gems to report.
Schatz-Konditorei is a small (8 table) place which is completely non-smoking. You turn into the passage just next to the Schatz store at Getreidegasse 3 and find them in the middle of the passageway.
Getreidegasse turns into Judengasse and as you continue, you will find Maredo which is one of a chain resembling the Argentinian Parillidas. They have over half their restaurant non-smoking. The food is excellent although not heavy Austrian fare.

Hi Payant,
Sounds like you had a good trip. Were you satisfied with the Sofitel?
I leave for Vienna tomorrow at 6:30 am--any last minute suggestions/observations appreciated!
