Pretty in Pink in Vienna at Cafe Aida

New York City has the famous cupcakes of Magnolia Cafe, and of course there are the lovely scones of York. But Europe’s real foodie attraction are the pretty in pink cakes in Vienna at Cafe Aida

This is a chain cafe/bakery in Austria, now I normally wouldn’t recommend a Starbucks-like brand. But with their old-fashioned neon signs, their windows full of beautiful cake creations, and their only-pink policy, I can’t think of a better recommendation for Vienna. The umbrellas are pink, the waitresses are pink, and most of the cakes have pink icing. And they’re good – this isn’t all show. So skip the Sacher Torte and head for Aida.

One of my faves is the topfen strudel – which is just a cream cheese strudel (although the cream cheese isn’t exactly the same as the one you’re thinking of). Otherwise, just point at something that catches your eye – there is a massive glass case full of them.

Vienna is a great place for museums and shopping, so my one of my Europe travel tips would be to recharge and relax your sore feet by sipping some cappuccino and a sugary sweet at Vienna’s Cafe Aida. Plus it is a convenient stop if the weather isn’t so great.
