As Vienna is famous for its coffee tradition, you have to have a cup of coffee when you get there! I can assure you: there is no better place to find tasty and delicious pastries next to your coffee than in Vienna.
Many trip advisors will lead you to the most famous coffee places like Café Sachers, Café Landtmann or Café Central. You should definitely not miss these places, as there is no better way to get in touch with the traditional lifestyle of Vienna than with an “Apfelstrudel” and a cup of Viennese coffee, so called “ Wiener Melange”.
But for all of you who want to get in touch with the young Viennese lifestyle and love hidden places, that are not stuffed with tourists, I will show you where to go to!
As I live in Vienna and love to have a cup or even more cups of coffee and some sweet pastry next to it, I will to write about places you won’t find in any trip advisor.
I will start with my favorite hidden bakery in the city:
Pure Living Bakery Vienna
An Austrian flight attendant, who wanted to bring the delicious taste of American pastry to Vienna, founded this the Pure Living bakery. After visiting some coffee places all over the world she decided to open the Pure Living Bakery. The most important feeling for her was finding home in a café.
Whether you want some brownies, crumbles, cheesecake or cookies, you will find a great range of sweet things here. I can highly recommend you the Hot Cinnamon Rolls! Yummy!
Next to nice pastry you will also find a great amount of different bagels. You can choose between sesam, poppy seed or wholemeal bagels. For all veggie-lovers: they also have veggie-bagels!
The bakery is hidden in a backstreet next to Schönbrunn. As I am sure that this will be on your Must-Visit-list you can enjoy some nice pastry after a long walk around the palace and in the imperial gardens.
It is also the a good place to study for an exam! But watch out: you won’t find have any WIFI there. The owner don’t want people to sit there with their laptops or scroll on their mobile phones, she wants them to relax and make them have a good talk.
This is definitely no bakery for weight-watchers, as the cakes are baked with a lot of butter and sugar, in other words: baked with much love!
