Otto’s Coffee & Fine Foods

This “Viennese inspired” cafe is the latest addition to the Adolphus since the hotel’s splashy 2017 makeover. Handsome tiled floors and dark gray wood-paneled walls lend a continental veneer, but a contemporary sound track, hip baristas, and youthful customers spark a modern energy that invites you to linger. Besides coffee drinks, juices, and house-made pastries (sachertorte, apple strudel), the abbreviated menu offers breakfast and lunch dishes, like quiche, sandwiches, soups, and salads. A diminutive prosciutto, arugula, and Parmesan sandwich was made with nicely crusty, ficelle-like bread. Its precious brown-paper-and-twine wrapping distracted us from the price ($10). A quinoa salad was loaded with delicious roasted baby carrots, cubed sweet potato, pistachios, and arugula. Our chocolate croissant lacked the flaky exterior that you’d expect from a European-style bakery, but it cradled good-quality chocolate, and the presentation for espresso-based drinks—on a wooden board with a chocolate sable and a small glass of water—was coffee-hipster heaven. Noteworthy Viennese specialties include a dense Liège waffle and semolina dumpling soup.
