A cafe serving tasty European mountain food, also know for their food truck which sells their Austrian dumplings around the capital's street food markets.
Amid a bright shopfront interior, owner/patron Martin Auer offers a selection of food which reflects his upbringing in the Tyrol. His speciality is alplings dumplings are weighty, separately flavoured and richly cheesy – if you choose – and constitute a meal in themselves. You can eat them in the café, take them home to cook yourself, or takeaway. Elsewhere on the menu the goulash, rösti, polenta bake and particularly the spätzle pastas and signature homemade apple strudel offer a window onto the cooking of the Western Alps which can’t be found anywhere else in the city. With a new French chef on-board, there are also plans to expand the menu, adding fondues to the cheesy wonders on offer as well as a range of dishes from the east of the Alps.
