If you don't get the chance to head all the way down to Austria, this place can give you a bit of an idea what it is like there, or at least, when it comes to café traditions. Café Fromme has been in business since 1893, and has mastered the Vienna coffee house atmosphere. That suggests a certain pride, plenty of fussiness, and a confectioners-patisserie of the finest order. Chocolates, truffles and cakes that will make the heart of the sweet-toothed individual beat that much faster, can be found here. Fromme is conveniently located in the center of town, near the Opernhaus Köln and the Schauspielhaus. There is also a new, younger sister open in the Neumarktpassage, right next to the Gonski bookshop.
