With a battalion of waiters, and air of nobility, this grand cafe is celebrated for its Sacher Torte, a wonderfully rich iced-chocolate cake with apricot jam once favoured by Emperor Franz Josef. It has a covered pavement terrace, but for the full-blown experience, head to the opulent chandelier-lit interior.
