In Need of Comfort Food on a Rainy Day?
Trześniewski to the Rescue!


Where to find refuge on a rainy day in Vienna
when it is either too late or too early for coffee,
but you need a bite to tide you over until mealtime?


Trześniewski to the Rescue!
Heaven-sent hideaway since 1902


Late Morning Snack
Open-faced finger sandwiches
and a Pfiff - all for € 3.20


A Trześniewski Pfiff
0.125 liter equals 4.23 US oz


Trześniewski's Sandwich Parlor
Founded by a Polish immigrant in 1902 and serving
ever since unaussprechlich gute Brötchen,
difficult to pronounce but incredibly good sandwiches,
and not only on rainy days

  4. Good to know and look it up next time I'm in Vienna, for patriotic and gastronomic reasons. Warsaw is rainy too, Merisi.

    1. True, thank you! :-)

      Did you see the recent negative reviews on some of those internet travel portals?
      Bread too dense (makes me laugh), unfriendly (!!!), expensive. I absolutely disagree with such statements. Even though I only bought two slices for me and a friend to give her a taste of Vienna, a glass of water came free of charge, smiles included. And there even clear your table.

  12. Oh how I love that second photo of the man tucked away in the perfect-sized corner, with the serving lady's reflection shining in the mirror behind him. Wonderful capture!

    About your question on my blog about the chair...it could well be an Eames, and I have posted a better photo of it there so that you might be able to tell.

  13. Oh, those red chairs look so sparkly and inviting!

  14. This is such a splendid place with delicious food - and the decor stuns.
    I took Claudia to look at it this afternoon. She was most impressed!

  15. It looks so cozy, yet somewhat retro or art deco...or something! I hope to remember it if we ever find ourselves in Vienna!

  16. Oh this is such a difficult little corner of Wien : Cafe Hawelka on one side, and the unpronouceable T, but incredibly tasty, on the other...I cannot count the number of times I have been torn between choices when visiting !
    Lovely pictures, great colour tone, and I know those sandwiches will have tasted divine.
    Coming to Wien in November, and I am sure there will be rain.

  17. I don't believe I've ever heard a more pleasant name for a brew than Pfiff. It is, without doubt, the easiest brand-name to pronounce I've ever encountered and is probably made even easier to say once once has had five or six!

  18. What a wonderful place to have near you. Starbucks is it for us, but would prefer your raining day hang out

  19. Comfort fod at anytime, I think. :-)
