Welcome to

Where young and old get together to eat cake.

Granny happiness, greatest cakes ever, together!

The basic idea of our Vollpension café (German for “full pension,” which refers to both the one that Austrians get from the government upon retirement and to the kind of hotel stay that includes meals, or full board) is easily explained: Where do you get the best cake ever? At your granny’s, right? And with us, in our Vollpension café.

Come to our café and get spoiled in our granny’s public living room, in Vienna, order your granny’s cake for your own home or learn how to bake from our senior BackAdemics who love to finally be able to share their lifelong baking skills with you via the internet.


Why do we do this?

Together, not alone in old age
It is much easier to be together than alone. Loneliness is one of the big issues for many elderly people in big cities. We think that this need not be the case, and this is why we are there for each other.
Additional income instead of old-age poverty
Growing old in poverty? Well, guys, yes, this is the bitter reality for many elderly people around us. We create purposeful possibilities to add some income to the too-low pension they very often receive.
Promoting a dialogue between generations
Eating brings people together. Old and young, regardless of where you come from, regardless of who you are: the most important thing is that we show respect and empathy for each other. Let’s get to know each other, and learn from one another!
Baking for world peace
We think cakes are great. A cake baked with love by a granny can perhaps even save the world. And in our case, it can definitely bring people together.

“Generationencafés” (generation-bridging cafés) in Vienna

We are grandma’s public living room with the greatest cakes from Vienna and Tokyo, freshly baked by our grandmas and grandpas daily right in front of your eyes. A colourful load of people, bringing old and young together in one place.

Learn how to bake from the best!

Drastic corona times call for drastic measures! We get our Vollpension to the internet with our “BakAdemy”.
Now you can learn how to bake from the best: from grandma and grandpa. And added to that, we all do something good for each other.

Mr Karli’s story...

... is only one of so many we have heard over the years. And it shows what a big difference Vollpension makes for individual people.
