I had heard so much about the Sacher Torte that I had to try it. I was NOT impressed. It is dry, rather bland and very expensive. It's definitely overrated.

Having read that this is where the chocolate cake originated, I decided to have a go at it. The Sachertorte may not be the best chocolate cake I've ever eaten, but I must say that the beautiful atmosphere of the cafe more than makes up...More

After visiting Nordkettnbahen, I could find this cafe just nearby. The menu and decor match the ambience. Outside tables offering dining experience is also good.Variety of Piazzas and soft drinks is quite impressive. Good for quick bite and not at all expensive.

We bought two sachet forte and they were both very dry, nothing to do with the real sachet tort. Don't go and don't spend your money in this place, their cakes are absolutely disgusting. I am so disappointed !

After 2 years we came back to this place trying to revamp our austrian Sacher desire. What a delusion. Since we were tourist ( I suppose) we were the only guests without tablecover and napkins, while all the austrians did. We had a salad, a...More

If you haven't had the real Sachertorte before, here you can have it, and it's wonderful. Usually there's a queue to the cafe, but visiting is worth it. Background music is classical music which fits perfectly to the cafe atmosphere.

We couldn't find anywhere to eat for lunch, everything was closing early (Dec 24th). We finally found this café-restaurant. The food was nice, and the staff tries to be there for everyone, even if the café is constantly full (1 experienced server and 3 young...More

We stopped in here for cake and coffee after a visit to the Hofburg. As always, the Café Sacher is first class. Especially welcome is the detailed notation on the menus with allergen contents of the food, making it easier to choose. Delicious!

Description
The elegant and iconic Café Sacher in Innsbruck is in the Hofburg Imperial Palace and it exudes old world Habsburg atmosphere with modern touches brought in with a 2011 refurbishment. The café is a successful combination of a wine bar, restaurant & café. It offers the opportunity to sample some Original Sacher-Torte but there are also many savoury dishes and a fabulous wine list. In the summer the quiet interior courtyard of the palace is a great venue for sampling some of our extensive selection of cocktails and liqueurs. Host Alexander Klapps and his team treat their guests to outstanding culinary delights. The combination of a café, wine bar and a high-class restaurant offers an impressive choice of creative and delicious dishes, combining innovation and tradition, accompanied by a fine selection of wines.
