Built into the side of one of the city walls, reached via a set of steps between Strada Turnului and Piata Huet, is Pivnita de vinuri "Weinkeller," Str. Tunrului 2 (tel. 0269/21-0319; Tues-Sun noon-midnight), a wine cellar-cum-restaurant with traditional German dishes and light meals (like quiche Lorraine and cold meat-and-cheese platters) and an extensive wine list with vintage indicated on a map, so you'll learn a bit about where they've come from.

Sundowner Heaven -- To catch the sun setting over Sibiu in style, head over to sweet and stylish Café Wien, just behind the Evangelical Cathedral. You can grab a table indoors, but on warm summer evenings, the terrace is perfect, and you might just get a free concert courtesy of the cathedral's choir, which sometimes performs in the adjacent square. Choose from a decadent menu of special coffees -- the "Brukenthal" is prepared with a good dose of Amaretto -- or ask after the homemade lemonade.
