Best to reserve a table as this is a very popular viennese place. Old fashioned charm and you really feel like being back in time.

Nice cafe and quite ok cakes and food. However we didn't notice that tip was already included in our bill. We actually checked the bill but tip was hidden there in the middle of the bill in german so we ended up tipping them twice...More

Cafe schwarzenberger has a fantastic old decor, an ideal place to go for a coffee/hot chocolate and a sachertorte! Friendly staff and very classy decor. I went here during my stay in Vienna and absolitely fell in love with it!

We stopped for a light dessert and coffee mid afternoon. The Cafe is worth the experience. Many people, traditional waiters, bustling environment. Probably best for coffee not for lunch or dinner. It was a fun experience in a centuries old coffee house where intellectuals used...More

My Mum and I stopped here for a late lunch after arriving in Vienna. We ordered a ham omelette with coffee. The waiter was efficient. The food was nice but the salad has a lot of water in the bottom.

I would stay clear of this restaurant, the service is so poor. It is self seating, so basically ignored from the minute you walk in the door. After a while we were served, and the food came. The food was not particularly tasty and portions...More

It is sober looking serious place. Per se not child friendly. However, we saw children and prams when we were there. I would think it can be done.
