Good food in a nice atmosphere with reasonable prices for Vienna. Eggs Benedict was nice and the omelet was light and fluffy. Herbal teas make it nice for caffeine free folks like me!

Proper old skool service with guys in waistcoats etc with correct and prompt service. A lot of rich locals - idle and working - seem to enjoy this superbly located spot.

Very professional staff. Beautiful cakes. Great coffee. Ask for "Kaffee verkehrt" if you want a latte. Keep an eye on the prices on the menu unless you're ok with a 20EUR breakfast.

Went for a sort of Bellini which was delicious: a glass of sekt with a frozen lollipop of peach puree, delicious. Then stayed for a plte of asparagus for a light lunch. Fresh and ok, but on the expensive side.

Café Museum has been a location frequented by many geniuses of the 20th century.Since its inauguration in 1899 it has been a meeting point for painters,writers, composers and architects. Mid 2010 the Café Museum was taken over by Berndt and Irmgard Querfeld. The importance of a high level comfort is something the Querfeld family have always been very aware of and therefore they have decided to restore the original Zotti design back to its original glory.
