General Manager Harald Baumann,
whose family is in the hotel business in Austria,
chose to launch his first Asian shop in Taipei.
Baumann's Kaffee is an Austrian cafe that serves
warm desserts made to order, guaranteeing freshness.
As far as whether the flavours are authentic Austrian,
Baumann jokes that he hired his chef from home,
so it should be as good as it gets. --By Josie

Harald holds the most popular Salzburg Muffin
(NT$480). Time-consuming to make, it is usually
only served at special attractions for tourists
in Austria. The tip of this muffin resembles the
peak of Salzburg Mountain. Strawberry sauce is
poured on while it's hot. Limited quantities are
sold daily and requires a 20-30 minute wait.
Caesar Pancake (NT$380 for 2), also called a Caesar
Omelette, is an Austrian classic. Austria Fruit
Curd Dumpling (NT$200) has berry jam on the bottom,
is crispy on the outside, and rich and creamy
inside. Melange Coffee (NT$110) is popular, or
try the Espresso like most Austrians do!
