We stopped here for afternoon coffee and were suprised as it is very busy place but still they look after you and you enjoy lovely cake. The only minus is that it is quite noisy because of all the customers but it isn't problem of owner. Still is much cheaper and enyoable than Sacher cafe. We didn't have food so... More

Visited for teatime snacks. No waiting. This place scores 5/5 on all counts- food taste & quality, variety, presentation, cost and service. Could not have asked for more. The menu card is like a tourist attraction- so much variety- even for vegetarians like us! Thoroughly enjoyed and would love to visit again.

Stopped en route between Stephanplatz and Karmalite Markt for coffee and cake. Unfortunately, Vienna's reputation as the world's coffee and cake capital is not enhanced by this cafe! The coffee was tepid, bordering cold and the cake, sachertorte and a raspberry cake, were both tasteless, we left more than half of both of them. Service was OK and we were... More

I usually don't like to write bad reviews but this time I just can't avoid it. I've never experienced such a bad customer service. On a quiet Wednesday evening I went to this place to have dinner with friends. We ordered quite a lot, eat and then stayed longer chatting. We were not occupying a table on a busy night... More

Excellent cafè / restaurant with a big variety of breakfast options, lunch/dinner, ice cream, coffees, and other beverages. Not only is the location perfect, also the staff is incredible friendly.

We had both dinner and desert (as well as drinks). The food was fresh and tasty. The highlight of this spot though is the pastries, gelato, and other various deserts. They are phenomenal!

Excellent and I recommended. Staff was incredible. I didn't particularly like the cake but it was well made and its up to everyone to like it or not. The coffee was excellent

I had a light snack of wurst with bread, mustard and horseradish while my wife had a prawn salad. Both dishes were to our liking and the waiter was very attentive. Good food, good service and a good location (we ate outside) make for a good review.

Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
