Guglhupf and a Kleiner Brauner
A Viennese Bundt cake
Tante Jolesch could not have made it any better
In my book, Café Jelinek is on the top list
of places not to miss in Vienna.
Charming interior, great coffee,
a small, but fine selection of typical Kaffeehaus pastries,
and, on my visit, the friendliest waitress imaginable
(yes, Merisi is still on her quest to find the ubiquitous
grumpy waiter or waitress. No such luck so far, after
more than seven years of trying hard to find him or her)
Open every day of the week
from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM
