The Scoop on Cake in Vienna, Vienna, Austria (B)

The whole Vienna cafe scene really made me curious. Would it really be better than Paris? How could cake actually be that amazing? Was the Sacher torte even good?

I'm super fortunate to have had a full five days in Vienna over Easter break this year - and will be able to return again with my visiting friend, Kia, come June. Instead of trying to do five cafes a day on an insane sugar rush, I decided to spread out my Viennese cafe experience over the two trips.

Did I mention I'm including the ice cream places? Desserts are inseparable and part of the whole experience in my book!
