Ithaca Bites: Brötchen

If you can’t afford a trip to Europe and have an insatiable craving for some wienerschnitzel, head over to Brötchen, a new café and bakery in the Commons, which will instantly transport you to a Viennese kaffeehaus. Brötchen (pronounced BRERT-khen ) specializes in homemade chocolates, Viennese coffee and fine European pastries, all at reasonable prices. The café also offers light lunch fare, including gourmet open face sandwiches and three to four daily specials, including wiener schnitzel with red cabbage and herb-spiced pork tenderloin with prosciutto-wrapped brussel sprouts.
