Café Schwarzenberg is famed for being the oldest café on the Ringstrasse (the fast-moving ring road that wraps around the city). Unusually for the Austrian capital, literary figures and artists were not traditionally among the regular guests. Instead, it was – and still is – frequented by businessmen who enjoy reading a newspaper over a coffee and strudel after work. As well as the many dainty desserts and hot drinks on offer, there is a spread of Austrian dishes on the menu. For a truly traditional experience, you could order a liver dumpling soup as a starter, Tafelspitz (prime boiled beef) as a main, and – if you have room – an apple strudel for dessert.
