The Café Konditorei Zafita has a long tradition (est. in 1881) and is located next to the Opera of Graz and is famous for its delicacies and its traditional atmosphere. I like this coffee shop for its silence and quaint flair where you can focus on why you have come here, either for the coffee and tart itself or for meeting friends or business partners, there are no distractions here and you are quite productive and people come here to relax and enjoy an oasis of serenity right in the center of Graz.
The staff is very friendly and willing to help, and the cakes and tarts are very delicious and very representative for what the Austrian Pastry World stands for. I strongly recommend to order my favorite Weichselschifferl, a tart with many creamy layers, covered with marzipan and topped with sour cherry marmalade. The Weichselschifferl is a speciality of this place, you will not find anywhere else. So if you are into special delicacies, truly authentic for the region, the Zafita is definitely a hot spot for you.

The Bottom Line: The Cafe Konditorei Zafita, located in the Girardigasse 6-8, in 8010 Graz, is a Grazer institution with a long tradition of more than 100 years. Its location in the center of Graz next to the opera house makes it a perfect spot to relax and have a great time with delicacies you only get here.
From Graz with Love!
