Sadly I have to limit my cake intake. But if you offered me a slice of sacher torte I might be tempted.

If we're going to visit Rudi's Lounge in Vienna, we might as well have some Sacher-Torte!

That's the place where I last had sacher torte
Hotel Sacher

BUT my brother swears by the version at the Demel Bakery https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sachertorte#Legal_issues

I also had Sacher-Torte at Hotel Sacher (hence the address that I mentioned). I doubt that there really is a significant difference between Hotel Sacher and Café Demel's versions...

Maybe we should visit both, while we're in Vienna anyway, to assess this for ourselves.
