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.
