It would be impossible to visit every one of the thousands of coffeehouses in Vienna, Budapest, and Prague, but I did visit those with biggest impact on each city’s history and culture. This list compiles personal favorites and is not meant to be a complete catalogue. Not every coffeehouse is steeped in nostalgia. Sparkling new coffeehouses open regularly, often with admirable individuality and a sense of style that brings the comfortable home-away-from-home into this century. I’ve included a few of my favorite “new-style” cafés here along with the established classics. For ease of alphabetization, the word Café is ignored in the list.
