Grand Café Central has a rich history: Trotsky came here to play chess, and turn-of-the-century literary greats such as Karl Kraus and Hermann Bahr regularly met here for coffee. Its impressive interior of marble pillars, arched ceilings and glittering chandeliers now plays host mostly to tourists, but it remains a decadent setting for a Melange and a slice of chocolate-truffle Altenbergtorte.
