Hearty, homely and often on the sweet side, Austrian cuisine is like a warm mother's hug. Similar to that of its Swiss, German and Eastern European neighbours, the Austrian diet is built upon clear soups, meaty stews, root vegetables and bread-filled breakfasts. 

 

Austria's dessert offerings are also filled with rustic charm. From torn pancakes to a classic Linzer torte, soft, buttery pastry and sweet fruit fillings truly reign supreme.
