One of the most famous coffeehouses in Vienna, this well-known gathering spot has been run by the same couple since it opened shortly after World War II. Small, smoky and cozy, it is still one of the favorite places for impoverished writers to congregate and scribble their works into small notebooks. Delicious coffees are on hand, of course, but make sure to also try the house specialty. The Hawelka is famous for its freshly homemade Buchteln (cakes filled with apricot jam).
