Right on Museum Mile and set in a wood-paneled mansion designed by Carrere and Hastings (architects of the New York Public Library at 42nd Street), there are few places as pleasant for breakfast, lunch, or tea in the city. The eatery is actually part of the Neue Galerie, a museum of Austrian and German art, so this transplanted Viennese cafe serves all the heavy Teutonic specialties of that city, from bratwurst to creamy spaetzle, along with an assortment of lighter salads and sandwiches. These are all fine, but you really come here for the delicious pastries and Viennese coffee so strong it will grow hair on your tongue.
