Cafe Mozart vs. Cafe Sabarsky

Now that it's a little chilly again, I've got a hankering for a steaming cup of rich Viennese coffee and a large slice of fat-making Dobostorte. Both Cafe Mozart and Cafe Sabarsky have been described as a Viennese Konditorei, which is a good start, but is one better than the other? Does one produce fantastic tortes and excellent coffees while the other is just a decent neighborhood bakery? Or will I have to check both out?
Cafe Sabarsky hands down. The desserts at Sabarsky are much more delicate while Cafe Mozart's I find too sugary and rich. If you're looking for specialty coffees (like Viennese) Sabarsky has a much better variety (Mozart doesn't really specialize in coffee as far as I recall).
If you are going to Cafe Sabarsky, go on off hours because I tried to go there once on the weekend after visiting the Neue Galerie and there was a very long line. I took a peak in there and it appeared that everyone was eating full lunches, not just having coffee and dessert.
