The start of the Kaiserschmarrn story begins here.
The first weekend I set foot in Austria, wondering through the streets of Salzburg, I stumbled across a quaint courtyard off the busy Getreidegasse. Looking to try something ‘Austrian’ to eat along with my coffee, I looked over to a couple eating a sweet looking dish with compote. I pointed to it as the waiter asked me for my order.
And that was it, the Kaiserschmarrn love began.
Succulent raisins with a healthy portion of plum jam, there was plenty of icing sugar, and not too much pancake egg taste either, meaning this was a sweet helping.
The cafe is beautiful too. It is a quiet courtyard, the waiters leave you to enjoy the peaceful setting. And without many tourists stumbling across this, there were only a couple of lunch dates and some regulars sat at the coffee bar inside.
I would thoroughly suggest this for a cafe in the Old Town touristy area. It’s a nice retreat from a day of sightseeing and shopping; you don’t have to deviate too far if you need to rest legs and have a sugar and caffine top up, and you feel as if you’ve found a hidden gem.
It doesn’t seem to have a website, but see it on TripAdvisor here.
