A grand Viennese-style coffee palace in Castlemaine? It might sound incongruous, but the bohemian Das Kaffeehaus suits the gold rush town’s charmingly deshabille style. As befitting the Austrian expat owners, the menu makes a play for middle European fare that is comfort personified: expect goulash, or artisan sausages with all the trimmings (sauerkraut, mustard and bread for mopping duties) and always apple strudel. And the coffee? As a front for roastery Coffee Basics it’s reliably good and eclectically international, swinging Italian, Turkish or Viennese (topped with whipped cream, natürlich).
