Café & Pâtisserie
The design of the Café Am Hof was based on 19th-century Viennese coffee house culture. But the coffee itself couldn’t be more modern. Alongside traditional Viennese coffee specialities, you can also order drip coffee (filter coffee) made using the Chemex method, Turkish coffee, French press or Moka coffee and of course the finest tea and hot chocolate creations.
‘Everything is good if it’s made of chocolate’ said the Viennese artist Erika Pluhar.
And everything is even better if it is served along with creams and tortes, macaroons and cookies, biscuits and homemade chocolates from the hands of the patissiers at the Café Am Hof.
The taste: Intensive, long-lasting aromas of tropical timber, bittersweet chocolate and nut, a barely noticeable acidity, very spicy taste, dense body.
The origin: From the region of Malabar on the west coast of India. Coffee farmers take advantage of monsoon rain and wind. In warehouses, which can be opened on the top and on the sides, the raw coffee is suspended in the monsoon. The procedure is called “monsooning.”
The taste: A balanced dialog of sweet and bitter, flowery and fruity flavors, of caramel and roasted bread, chocolate, almonds and honey.
The origin: This coffee from the Italian roaster Triest is composed of nine different grades, coming from the best growing areas in the world and harvested by hand from 100% Arabica beans.
The Café Am Hof offers a constantly changing range of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have a look at our current menu.
