It had been a long time since my good friend Kathi (now Dr. Kathi Kastner – congratulations!) and I sat down for a Viennese coffee and chat. Back at home in Prückel, one of the first Viennese cafés I visited and perhaps my favorite is Café Prückel, next to Statdtpark on the edge of the first district.
For a time I even tried to work in Café Prückel as it is wonderfully bright during the day. But it is just too smoky for more than an hour or two.
The goulash soup is classic.
