Cafe Ratings and Cafe Sperl

by on May 9, 2008


Now I’ve decided that some sort of cafe rating is in order.

On a scale of 1 to 5 where 1 is Yuk and 5 is Near Perfect (only Mother Nature does perfect), we’re going to score the following criteria: Atmosphere, Cake, Coffee, Service.

When it comes to coffee…remember…we’re talking espresso. And of course we’re comparing to an Ice-and-Slice coffee. Ice hand-grinds the coffee and Slice baristas.

Today we discovered Cafe Sperl …

Cafe Sperl

…definitely a 5 on atmosphere…this is a place to hang out and read the paper (notice the papers neatly laid out on the pool table…to the right in the photo below).

Cafe Sperl

Service was excellent (rates a 5) and the coffee…rating a 4….is as good as the Schwarzenberg.

The Sacher Torte was deliciously moist and the Zwetschegn Schnitte (or Zwetschegn Datschi if you are in Bavaria) was very special.  The Sacher Torte is chocolate-iced chocolate cake with apricot jam in the middle.  (Yesterday and elsewhere we shared one that was terrible!)  Swtschegn Schnitte is a shortbread base with a plum topping.  Cakes at Cafe Sperl rate a 5! 

Don’t forget to order Schlag Obers (whipped cream) with your cake.  I used to wonder and poke fun at Slice’s affection for cream with his cake but now I understand it!

All this cake eating…its a good thing we’re cycling 30 kms a day! Oh my knees!

Ah! but you have yet to visit Demel! I do have a hunch this remain your favorite except for the pastries, non can compare with Demel’s. You must try the crackers…so delicious.
