Five hidden cafes in Salzburg

Hidden in inconspicuous passageways and courtyards, the city of Mozart is home to eateries that are a must-see.

In Salzburg, there are a few alternatives to the world-famous venues. So to speak, hidden delicacies like the "Schatz Konditorei", known only to the locals or well-informed travelers.

Falstaff reveals five of these insider tips

If you want to taste what is said to be the best nut bun in the world, you have to go to Roittner Passage. This is quite hidden between Getreidegasse and Universitätsplatz the "N°5". If the seats in the passage are still not private enough for you, you should venture up the spiral staircase to the second floor. There you will find not only a nice guest room, but also the exit to the arcade balcony.

Monday to Saturday there is a daily changing lunch dish, antipasti platter and buttered toast complete the small fine offer. Not to be missed is also the breakfast N°5.

Just a few meters away is the "Table Chemistry". In addition to handmade ceramics, table linens and accessories, the culinary experience is also catered for: the Daybar offers exceptional wines from South Africa, local coffee and desserts that change daily.

The largest selection of international coffee specialties in Salzburg can be found, how could it be otherwise, in a place called "Kaffeehäferl", which has dedicated itself to the motto "Life is too short to drink bad coffee". The coffee house was already opened in 1959 and scores with a year-round terrace. Thus, Austrian coffeehouse culture is available here 365 days a year.

If you want to taste the supposedly best Salzburger Nockerl in the city, you must not get lost in the maze of many arcades. Because the "Espresso Fabrizi" is also located in one of these. The entrance can be found at Getreidegasse 21.

If you walk along Getreidegasse to Kranzlmarkt and continue to Judengasse, you will not only find an Eldorado for interior design fans on the left side, but also the "Gehmacher Kaffeebar" hidden inside. The "living beauty" philosophy is reflected in the design of the café as well as in the tableware and the arrangement of the food and drinks. Be sure to order calientos and limoncello made by the host himself.
