This Viennese salon is where the city's movers and shakers satisfy their morning caffeine and chocolate croissant cravings. LOCAL FAVORITES Settle into a cushy orange velour banquette and order the smoked salmon with blini, tender Munich Weisswurst (white sausage), or silky scrambled eggs served on a hefty slice of seed-studded Vollkornbrot bread. This is also where you'll find Vienna's frothiest, most aromatic melange (cappuccino's Austrian cousin) and an almost-encyclopedic tea list, including such exotica as Darjeeling Top Second Flush and South African honeybush. DON'T MISS A visit to the shop below after breakfast. Inhale the heady aromas of rare artisanal cheeses and stock up on truffled mayonnaise, Riesling vinegar, and fruity Wachau Valley apricot jams. T+L TIP Call ahead to book a window booth overlooking the Baroque tangle of cherubs and saints of the Pestsäule monument on the square below.
