I'm in Vienna right now, trying to decode the cafe culture of this glorious city.
On my first day I visited eight different coffee houses, some famous, some hidden gems. So far, so good.
Except did they really expect me to eat my mini puppenkrapfen with a fork?
This is a special treat made around carnival time, an apricot jam-filled donut topped with powdered sugar.
At Cafe Sperl they sell snow globes depicting a plate of puppenkrapfen -- the "snow" drifting around the globe being the icing sugar from the donuts.
I think I may have to buy one.
