Was looking forward to a piece of real sachertorte - as a skilled baker from DK, I’m always respectfull when I see good handcraft. It was dry, without any moist, and topped with icing - I would prefer chocolate. All the cakes look pre-fabriced, sorry...More

I’m sorry, but the place is extraordinary, the food is medium and the waiters are the most boring people in Wien. I’m really sorry for the place and the history. I do not recommend.

I stopped in to meet an old friend for a couple of espressos and a chocolate cake. The coffee was good but the cake just average and not very sweet. My friend said that his cake was a bit salty.

This is one of the top 10 classic coffeehouses in Vienna, of course always lots of tourist is right on the Ring strasse, service is the usual at Viennas coffee houses a little bit grumpy but the food and deserts are great

This is a nice vintage cafe, centrally-located and a good place to stop on your way to a concert or the Belvedere museums. The food is adequate and the service is pleasant. But the apple strudel is just the best. It is made with raisins,...More
