Heindls is a classic pancake house with a traditional Austrian vibe. You can sample a huge range of both savoury and sweet pancakes – from ham with Gouda cheese and Norwegian salmon, to a an array of Kaiserschmarrn, including a Linzer Mandalscharrn: a delicious and rich combination of almonds and stewed raisins. The chefs are deeply proud that Heindls is a quintessentially Austrian establishment and ensure that all the ingredients used are homegrown – including the flour, which is created in Austrian mills, and the sugar, which is from Vienna and Lower Austria.
This iconic coffeehouse offers a range of pastries and delicacies and their version of Kaiserschmarrn gives any competitor a run for their money. Perfectly fluffy and not overly sweet, they come served with a sharp sauce and still piping hot. The café, first opened in 1876, has preserved the grand atmosphere of a splendid past. The beautiful vaults, marble pillars, exquisite chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, the royal, purple upholstery and the intricate design of the chairs instantly transport customers to imperial-era magnificence.
