Loved by over 40s

Joseph Brot

Bakery, Austrian

For firm believers of conservative methods, this bakery is dedicated to tradition. A lovely selection of bread and pastries are available and all are reassuringly crafted by hand with love. As well as delicious sourdough and rye bread, the pastry selection almost looks too good to eat – from the daintily-crafted éclairs to the pastel-coloured layer cakes. There are three shops to choose from in Vienna; one of which is a pâtisserie bistro.

Simply Raw Bakery

Veganism is becoming increasingly popular around the world and Simply Raw Bakery is keeping up with the trend. Considering all its products are devoid of all the components that are ordinarily essential elements in baked goods (eggs, milk and butter), it has a pleasingly wide selection of cakes. Kitsch and cute in its decor, it feels like a mixture between old and new.

Gragger & Cie wood stove baker

Austrian Baker Helmut Gragger pours his heart and soul into his baking. His wood stove is in the center of the bakery, giving customers the opportunity to watch him knead and throw flour while browsing loaves. Inside a late-Baroque style house, this bakery transports you back in time – it’s a cosy and comfortable atmosphere with a beautiful and homely aroma.

Pnyka Griechische Bäckerei

Bakery, Greek

This Greek bakery, located in the heart of the city, has a huge variety of Mediterranean treats, including spinach or meat filled-pastries, cheesy crumbly biscuits and savoury crackers, as well as honey-filled sweet treats. Pair your choice with a traditional coffee – strong and fragrant, it’s the perfect accompaniment to any baked good.

Cafe Demel

Bakery, Cafe, Austrian

Located around the corner from the Habsburg Palace, the sweet treats at Cafe Demel were once enjoyed by the Empress Sissi. This elegant and beautifully decorated shop sells many of Vienna’s quintessential and dreamy specialties, including the Austrian speciality, kaiserschmarrn, which comes drenched in a plum stew, as well as lots of fresh sandwiches and pastries. The dreamy chocolate cake, sachertorte, is highly recommended.

Hazar Konditorei & Bäckerei

Bakery, Turkish

Vienna has a large and thriving Turkish community and with that comes many glorious bakeries where you can sample honey-smothered, pistachio-speckled baklava and circles of generously-sized soft bread. Filled with trays of fresh Turkish desserts, Hazar Konditorei & Bäckerei in the 20th district is a great one to try.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
