Welcome to Li’l Vienna

There should be a Little Vienna, everywhere. It’s all artsy style, messy in a good way. It’s kind of European (but not too much), it’s a place to stroll through the cobblestone streets and let the day pass by in a patio cafe. It’s a vision, an idyllic idea. Help us pursue the dream. Food served in little Vienna is all Apple Strudel and Schnitzel. And real Brown Bread, and Würstl with Sauerkraut… It’s just delicious. Plus, tax is already included, all the time. Enjoy.

Austrians love poppy seeds. At least the majority does. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that there are a lot of dishes – sweet and savory – based on poppy seeds. That’s why I call them Austrian-style brownies :)

Plum Dumplings – Step by Step
