every beginning is difficult
“My passion is to cook. To surprise and happy people with new culinary creations
to do, ”says Christian Jeschke . One day I cooked ketchup for my friends for the first time for a barbecue evening. The group immediately fell in love with the creation, which I made with pure honey without chemical additives and starches. Soon I developed different, unique flavors with ingredients like coffee, chocolate and spices. This is how the run of Ritonka ... made with love (2016) began .
Together with my partner Ivana Fabianova , I turned my idea into a company.
But selling Ritonka products is not the only job we two workaholics do.
"The meeting with José, the owner of a coffee farm in Honduras and his passion for natural Arabica coffee inspired us and soon we became very good friends and business partners."
Since then, Ivana and I have been serving our guests in our Ritonka Café & Gourmet Store this very special coffee and have been showered with praise for it (see reviews, e.g. Google Maps).
And let's be honest - without a good cup of coffee and one
Chocolate bar, life would be much more boring!
Since December 2019 we, Christian Jeschke and Ivana Fabianova have been operating under the
Motto "COME TO ENJOY, LEAVE AS A FRIEND" a unique store with a view
to the Kunsthistorisches Museum. The wonderful scent of fresh strudel, the
delicious aroma of freshly ground coffee and the tempting displays of the
Ritonka Café & Gourmet Store to resist is almost impossible.
Mainly regional Austrian delicacies and specialties load to regular
right taste explosions. Whether handmade chocolate, vinegar, oils or
Spirits - everything is taken care of.
Cozy hanging out, good coffee and delicacies to take away are still there
far from everything that the location has to offer. To avoid just a simple, long-
There is an ongoing program at Ritonka to be a casual café.
