The new cake cafés

Little cake shops are opening in many corners of Vienna, where mostly people from the creative scene are making the transition to selling their homemade cakes, tarts and brownies.

French flair in Vienna

With homemade French pastries and Viennoiserie, Tart’a tata inspires pure indulgence. The glass case dazzles with artfully decorated desserts, tarts, eclairs, macaroons, croissants and much more, making it very hard to decide. Peti Pari, a small store with café, has also specialized in Viennoiserie and French patisserie, as can easily be spotted by the name. This is what modern confectioners look like – and the little cakes are real works of art.

Similarly, the sweet creations at Crème de la Crème are almost too good to eat. The enchanting and tastefully furnished café offers typical treats from Austria and France: Pralines, pies, mousses, tarts, braided pastries, sweet rolls and cream slices are just a few examples.

Tradition interpreted in a modern way

Viola is also a small, pretty establishment with sensational patisserie items ranging from éclairs to cream slices and classic plum cake as well as the reinterpretation of traditional desserts. Run as a bistro, the place also serves small dishes such as quiches, strudel and salads for quick snacks on the go.

Ella's Twins on Vorgartenmarkt also offers a mix of traditional and modern patisserie and chocolaterie to nibble on. The sweet temptations range from Punschkrapferl (rum-flavored pastry) to fresh and fruity maracuja-chocolate slices.

And those who would like a cake just like grandma made it at home will be delighted at Vollpension. Here you can find actual grandmothers at the oven, baking cakes and tarts that are familiar from childhood.
