The famous Café Sacher (est. 1832) you might know from Vienna, located on the opposite of the Wiener Staatsoper, the renowned Vienna Opera House. But for several years there is also a Café Sacher here in Graz. It is one of the few grand cafés in this students town. The location of the Café Sacher in Graz is in the Herrengasse, Graz’ main street. So from here you are in every part of the old town within a few minutes by foot. The entry of the Sacher at the Herrengasse is already quite elegant and hard to miss with all its splendor. You either stay in the part of the Sacher directly at the Herrengasse or you go through a long hallway into the rear part, where it is more comfortable and also tables for dining are set. The staff is very friendly and the opening hours are nice every day till 21:00, except Sunday (18:00).
The rear part is my favorite, with its comfy benches and splendid interior. You might think now, that I took a Sacher Torte, this very special tart. Far from it! I took a Kleiner Brauner (literally: small brown one), this small coffee with milk, famous all across Austria, together with a Moccaeclair, an éclair filled with mocca…yummy. Having had this in that kind of interior is really a special experience, since the elegant decoration of the Sacher blends in with the delicious dessert and coffee. But see for yourself:
And here you have the slide show:
The Bottom Line: The Café Sacher in the Herrengasse 6, 8010 Graz, is located in Graz main street promenade and a very elegant grand café with nice opening hours, meaning on every day except sunday until 9 pm (Sunday till 6 pm).
From Graz with Love!
