Hello my friends of the sugary cuisine! Today's restaurant recommendation is a newcomer in the Viennese gastronomy - "K.u.K. Hoflieferanten Gerstner & Schlumberger" - vis-á-vis the state opera in the first district. The beautifully decorated location combines a d e l i c i o u s pastry shop, a Schlumberger sparkling bar and a great variety of fancy gourmet food and delicate edible presents. What additionally impressed me, besides the elegant interior and yet so very cozy and peaceful atmosphere, is the surprisingly reasonable price range, cheaper than Starbucks. During my last visit, I had the heavenly triple chocolate mousse, pralinès and salty petit fours and, due to the opening, got to try out a special service by sparkling wine producer Schlumberger - a personalized bottle of their famous alcoholic beverage. It only takes a few minutes to design the label of your choice and might be a cool (last minute) present idea. And, finally, I found the kitschy, high quality cupcake decor (edible glitter, sprinkles..) I was looking for in Austria. Here at the shop. Halleluja! ;) For opening hours, the address and further details, click here.
