Great introductory experience to the art and science of Viennese coffee making. We had Apfelstrudel at Café Hawelka after the tour and it was the best Apfelstrudel and Viennese Melange we have ever had!

Netter Empfang in der relativ neuen Rösterei,die auch als Verkaufsraum für den Hawelka Kaffee dient. Sympathische Verköstigung von Kaffeespezialitäten und süßen Kleinigkeiten.
