    We sat in a cosy window booth, drank beer & are risotto and Italian toast (pesto, mozarella and tomato on toast) - both were very lovely. Atmosphere is laidback, warm and quiet. Great people-watching.

    A go-to spot for the city’s literati, Café Sperl has intimate, velvet-lined booths and is the ideal place to linger over the newspaper and a piece of Sacher torte.
