Café Pupp in the historic town centre of Brixen/Bressanone is a truly traditional establishment and boasts a rich history dating back to 1918. Today, more than a hundred years later, the café with its own pastry shop and ice cream parlour is still run by the Pupp family, who remain committed to preserving the principles of regionally sourced ingredients, natural products, and high-quality craftsmanship.
That is why the café has become a real institution in Brixen and even features in a song by Markus “Doggi” Dorfmann, a Brixen native famous in South Tyrol for his humorous songs about local life. The café’s high-quality pastries, gateaus, cakes, ice cream specialties, biscuits, chocolate crèmes, pralines, and South Tyrolean apple strudel made with shortcrust and puff pastry bearing the South Tyrolean seal of quality are particularly popular.
At Café Pupp, quality is at the heart of all their products. That is why the brothers Christian and Martin Pupp use traditional recipes as well as fresh, high-quality materials that are preferably regionally sourced. Their wedding cakes, on the other hand, are all the more creative and extravagant and can be commissioned upon request.
Whenever customers make compliments, even if it is just a simple “That was really good!”, Christian Pupp is grateful and feels validated that the business is doing everything right. “Our goal is to keep running our café with the pastry shop and ice cream parlour with utmost commitment and motivation, and to still be here ten years from now”, says Christian Pupp. In light of the café’s 100-year history and its unbroken success, this family of bakers has every reason to be hopeful.
