It was supposed to rain today, so we planned to visit one of vienna’s oldest and most beautiful coffee houses, Cafe Sperl. It was everything I dreamed of and more! The coffee was d😊wonderfully bitter and creamy, the perfect compliment to the spectacular apricot cake! I’ve been looking for the best apricot cake in Vienna and I’m sure I found it. The Crust was crumbly and a bit crisp and it tasted slightly of graham crackers and butter- perfect! The soft sponge cake in the middle was moist and full of vanilla, but the crowning glory was the perfect, sweet-tart apricot topping. I literally cried. It was that good. It was that perfect. I’m sure the beautiful surroundings and the piano player didn’t hurt either 😊The Best Apricot Cake. 🍑 Adam tried the Sperl Torte. It too was delicious. It tasted like Ferrero Rocher candies.
Thanks again to our handy Lonely Planet guide, we went to a great cafe for breakfast. The ambience was really cool and relaxed.
Vinyl Record press in the shop. Super cool!
Poor light makes these pictures ugly, but the food was good 😊 Tom kha Gai and Larb Gai- Thai classics filled with ginger, garlic, lemon grass, and fish sauce…. some of our favorite flavors! A Yelp reviewer said we had to try the grilled asparagus with tofu. The reviewer was wrong. What a bland dish! I should’ve known better 😔 Adam ordered the beef Bibambap- a rice bowl with delicious Korean grilled beef, kimchi, pickled veggies, and a fried egg on top. It was super flavorful and delicious!
After seeing Wonder Woman (great😊). We went for a stroll through one of Vienna’s beautiful parks. We bought a bottle of Austrian Reisling and some pretzels, sat in the grass, talked, laughed, listened to music, and relaxed. What a perfect Friday evening! A beautiful building designed by Otto Wagner (possibly my new favorite architect:) Click here for more about Otto. MozartMore excellent wine.
