This I do not rate. Bad service and cold got chocolate. Went twice this month and both times the staff were surly and not happy. Overrated but a lovely building.

We had high hopes of a special treat for my daughter's 21st treat. The Sacher torte was dry and stale and was changed very begrudgingly saying that's the way it should be! We we put right in the back where there was smoke from the staff rest room. The service was very slow and aloof. Hot choc nothing special and... More

The service is as excellent as it can be for a super busy cafe on the fashionable Getreidegasse. You may have to sit in the smoking section, and share your table with some Austrians, but it's absolutely surreal being in the place where the Mozart family bought their coffee and pastries, and where Wolfie himself drank his melange while socializing...

Tomaselli is a lovely cafe in Salzburg with a lot of history and some real good coffee. It is certainly worth a visit, but the prices are rather on the expensive side. It is however possible to get a coffee-to-go that is a bit cheaper, just ask the waiters!

You read that this was the oldest and first coffee place in Europe...this makes you willing to visit...You then realize the beauty of the place where this coffee resides...Though a long waiting queue might appear to be there, the waiters will certainly find you a place... Once entered, a welcoming and warm waiter will come to present the menus of... More

It's an historic café. It's really beautiful, and they cakes are served in a traditional fashion with the waitress going around with a large tray for the guests to choose from. We did not have any, only the traditional hot chocolate with whipped cream. We enjoyed it very much. The price is surprisingly moderate for such a well-known place

We had average food, ok service and high prices here, but the atmosphere was very nice. We ate outside overlooking a beautiful square. It was a nice memory, but don't go looking for a great breakfast or coffee.

To start, we both absolutely adore a good cup of coffee and good pastry!! This place is one of the most traditional pastry shops that I have ever been into, the service is good and you can tell everyone is working very hard to please! The coffee; cafe melange is the best way to go as it is the star... More

I love this place which is humming with locals and tourists alike. Not fancy, but the food is good. Easy service and pleasant. Great pastries as well. They serve you on a plateau with selection. I think though a bit of freshening up the decor would be good, but keep the feeling!
