  • I actually discovered this place through Instagram but I'm so glad I visited. The interior is breathtaking, the staff are all so lovely and as soon as you step in, you feel like you've been transported back in time. Such a cool experience.
  • It's a beautiful hall. The pianist played old pieces so it felt we were back to 1920s. The service was also excellent.
  • It was one of my favorite spots, beautiful architecture, quite reasonable snacks and cakes, but super slow service if you order salad or sandwiches. Perhaps it was bad luck... The prices are continuously increasing, slowly approaching the level, which most people would already consider as a tourist trap. Nevertheless, the place is still a 100% must-see and the coffee tastes great!
  • Relaxing place to have coffee and read a book. Great atmosphere, overpriced and boring food choices.
  • This is another of those stunning Viennese cafes that survived the wars. It has as much gold and brass as the Basilica. Great speciality coffee drinks and cocoa drinks for kids. Very expensive but worth at least one visit. The attached book store is big and spacious. They also sell wine.
