At Patisserie Salzburg, fortified by cups of rich Viennese coffee, customers can dive into a gamut of pastries inspired by Austrian classics. Some favorites are the golden-brown krapfens, fist-sized jelly doughnuts with a sweet, golden apricot center and the velvety Sachertorte, the cake invented in 1832 at the Hotel Sacher in Salzburg. This elegant dessert is composed of chocolate cake sandwiching smooth apricot preserves, which are then coated with chocolate glaze and chocolate shavings. Those with lighter palates might tuck into Patisserie Salzburgs beautiful pflaumenkuchen, a tart whose origins are German.
