Café Sperl


in Karlsplatz & Around Naschmarkt

Entrance to Cafe Sperl, Mariahilf.

With its gorgeous Jugendstil fittings, grand dimensions, cosy booths and unhurried air, 1880-opened Sperl is one of the finest coffee houses in Vienna. The must-try is Sperl Torte, an almond-and-chocolate-cream dream. Grab a slice and a newspaper, order a coffee (from some three dozen kinds) and join the people-watching patrons. A live pianist plays from 3.30pm to 5.30pm on Sundays.
