Excuse me, where is the way to Trez... those city-famous sandwiches? Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with Vienna and can't bring yourself to say the name: most locals will know where you're going because Trzesniewski's breads are a household name to almost everyone.

Trzesniewski has been satisfying Viennese hunger for over 120 years. The company was founded by Krakow-born Franciszek Trzesniewski. What sounds obvious today was revolutionary back then, at the beginning of the 20th century: he spread his bread with finely chopped spreads and served them in bite-sized bites so that they could be eaten easily without cutlery and without spilling.

With this idea, creativity and fine ingredients, Trzesniewski quickly became a Viennese snack icon. And Trzesniewski is still one today. Old and young, locals and travellers to Vienna meet in the pubs.

To this day, the rolls are spread by hand (traditionally with the help of forks). There are around 25 varieties in the display case, including many original recipes from the early years.

The bestseller, they say, is bacon and egg. There are also breaded Austrian classics such as Tafelspitz with horseradish, pepperoni or spicy egg. There are also numerous vegan options on offer.

Meanwhile, the breads are available at around a dozen locations throughout the city. The nicest is the flagship store in Dorotheergasse, where Trzesniewski has been at home for over 100 years. The restaurant is not far from St. Stephen's Cathedral and is easy to find. If you still need to ask for directions - this is how the complicated name is pronounced: Tschesnijewski.
