This cafe is truly a little gem in the 2nd district. Run by a friendly owner and efficient staff, The Cake Tree has become one of my favourite places in Vienna. Don't forget to try a slice of Guinness Cake!

Myself and my wife stopped in for breakfast. It was tough not to order one of their delicious looking cakes for breakfast. Great coffee too. Stayed on for lunch and had a few beers.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative

take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
