Café Katja


The menu is limited at this 25-seat Austrian nook, but the homemade wursts and Emmentaler spaetzle are delicious and satisfying. As you’d expect, Cypriot sommelier Georgios Hadjistylianou’s list offers mostly Austrian options like a piercing Nigl Grüner Veltliner Kremser Freiheit and melony Zierfandler from Stadlmann. There’s also a lineup of eaux de vie from Hans Reisetbauer, including his intensely fragrant Blue Gin crafted from 20 different botanicals. Or finish with the foresty flavors of Zirbenz’s stone pine liqueur.
