Vienna's Cafe Aida is one for those with sweet teeth
Food is one of the main sources of enjoyment that can be found while on holiday in a new country, particularly if you're on vacation in Europe, as you're likely to come across some very exotic and unheard of delicacies. However, cakes and sweets you can get wherever you are and if you fancy doing a bit of a confectionery tour of the world, consider visiting Cafe Aida during your stay in a hostel in Vienna.

According to Andy Hayes of Tips from the T-List, this little establishment is one of Europe's "real foodie [attractions]", which suggests that it could definitely be worth a visit. Fans of the colour pink in particular will love the venue, as they hold an only-pink policy, something that is obvious as soon as you step onto the premises.

People are shielded from the summer sun (and winter rain) by big pink umbrellas and parasols, the waitresses are dressed in - you guessed it - pink and the majority of the cakes for sale come with pink icing. Yum!

Mr Hayes said that one of his favourites is the topfen strudel - "a cream cheese strudel (although the cream cheese isn't exactly the same as the one you're thinking of)".

He also commented that Cafe Aida would be the perfect choice for all those museum trekkers who are footsore and have found sightseeing extremely thirsty work. Stop here for refreshment before hitting the galleries once more.

A good one to check out if you're in the region next year will be the city's own Madame Tussauds, due to open its doors in 2011. You'll be able to exclaim over the likenesses of greats such as Mozart, Freud, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Brad Pitt. What fun!
