Apfelgold is an adorable family-run café in the Länggass quarter. With its vintage furniture and wooden interior, it is definitely a place to linger. For bookworms, there is also a bookshelf to browse. The books change regularly, so there’s always something new to discover.
As you may have guessed, I don’t come here only because of the furniture and the reading material, but to indulge in their finger-licking-good desserts. The seasonally changing delights are on display at the counter. If you have a hard time to decide and taste them all at once, I can strongly recommend to go for the coffee/tea gourmand. By ordering this, you get a warm drink with three sinful desserts… Besides, they live up to the meaning of their name (golden apple), as you can buy apple products such as juice and puree from local farmers.
There is only one bad thing about Apfelgold: it’s very popular and it’s sometimes difficult to find a place. Luckily there are some more trendy cafés in the neighborhood, where you can satisfy your sweet tooth if the crave is urgent (e.g. Caffè Bar Sattler, Tingel Kringel, etc.).
It’s also worth checking their homepage. Every summer (mid July to mid August) and winter (mid December to mid January) they have a short break, when creative pop-up cafés move in.
