This outstanding edifice was ommissioned by the New York Insurance Company 1n 1894, the New York Palace was built according to the plans of Alajos Hauszmann, Flóris Korb and Kálmán Giergl.  It was recently renovated  in 2006 and is part of the Boscolo New York Palace Hotel.

The first thing you notice when entering is a large  self standing sign, next to the  hostess podium, stating “NO PHOTOGRAPHS.’  Why!  Everything afterword, other then the decor, consists of a plane, overpriced menu,  a stylized pop and jazz soundtrack, and  poor service.

The room itself is lavish rococo which when renovated, consisted of guilding  everything.  Except the too modern chairs and tables- which fail to blend into the style in which it was renovated.

Unfortunately, no atmosphere remains of the old days  the stories about

It’s worth going to see the building and have a coffee to kill the curiosity.  If nothing else, the wall sconces outside the door are worth the trip! (photos below).

The Café Central was designed by architect Heinrich von Ferstel as a bank.  It was converted in to a coffeehouse in 1860 and today finds itself one of the most famous  of Vienna’s cafés.

Central was a regular meeting place for  late 19th century intellectuals when it went by the name Die Schachhochschule.  It’s clientell included architect Adolf Loos, Mathematician Leo Perutz and Novelist Hugo von Hofmannsthal.

Die Schachhochschule closed its doors at the end of WWII and reopened them after a great renovation in 1975 as the Café Central.  Many now categorize it as a tourist trap, but it is worth the visit  for it’s architecture and the remarkably conceived pumpkin soup!

Two blocks from the Four Seasons Hotel and  on the edge of the Vörösmarty Square one finds the medium sized Café Dorottya.  Complete with modest decoration, FREE WIFI and the best service in Budapest, Vathy Tamas, son the proprietor, makes you feel at home while he  shares information on local activities and Hungarian wine! mmmm.

Don’t forget to try one of the lovely desert wines, such as the “Chateau Megyer Tkaji Aszu”  The menu has a good selection of vegetarian dishes and delicious deserts.  Part of the cheese selection is imported by the Café directly from Italy

Their coffee selection is one of the better that we have found in Budapest.

On weekend evenings, the Café Dorottya turns into a bar,  bringing together a mixed crowd of locals and tourists.

Café-Restaurant Milo (formally the Café-Restaurant Una) is located in one of the original wings of the imperial stables.  The vaulted ceilings are covered with a beautifull pattern of oriental tiles designed by by Asiye Kolbai-Kafalier (Vienna).  The atmosphere is a bit minimalist and cold (It is Austria!), but  it is definitely worth visiting to enjoy the work of architects Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal.

The Café Sperl is our favorite coffee haus in Vienna!

Located in the 6th District, Café Sperl first opened in 1880.  Its very tall ceilings are tinted with centuries of cigarette smoke, while its immense windows look out on Gumpendorfe strasse and light floats onto the billiard tables.

Entering the building is to travel back in time; Starting with the ceiling, the ferry relief at the entry and all the people of myriads of ages sharing a coffee or a cake, reading the paper,  playing bridge or chess .. everyone is passing the day, slowly and quietly. Crystal and brass chandeliers give a warm light to the thornet chairs, velvet booths and Bridge tables.

Be sure to try the sperl tarte! Enjoy!
