The aroma the world's finest coffee wafts onto the streets from the grandiose building that once hosted the central location of Austria's national bank and stock exchange. The opulent interior décor of Vienna's world famous Café Central combined with its sumptuous pastries and beverages makes this traditional coffee house a staple for locals and tourists alike. Vienna is also home to some outstanding new coffee shops, that have modernized the tradition of the Wiener Kaffeehaus. These new shops use top quality, locally roasted coffee beans, and prepare each cup with great care. My favorites are Caffècouture District 1, Cafe Balthasar, and POC (People on Caffeine).
