Yesterday we talked breakfast – specifically, how much you’d spend on it. JasonD says $35; let’s see if this one makes him change his mind.

I’m a sucker for an amazing hotel breakfast, and the buffet at the Hotel Sacher was one of the highlights of my trip to Vienna last year. When I returned this year, even though I wasn’t staying in the Sacher, I made a beeline for the breakfast buffet. The cost? €37, or $41.

If you thought life couldn’t get sweeter than yesterday's chocolate tastings at Jade Mountain, think again. Specifically, think of Vienna’s legendary Hotel Sacher.

And yes, they smell divine.

There are four treatments to choose from, starting from A Symphony in Chocolate, which lays on a steam bath, cacao bean peeling massage, chocolate body mask and a final chocolate massage over a 110-minute period. The other three - A Dream of Chocolate, A Taste of Chocolate, and A Sensation of Chocolate - are 60-minute combinations of two of the Symphony’s elements: so scrub and body mask, scrub and a chocolate rub down, and body mask, scrub and chocolate body care.
