The quiche Lorraine was perfection. Even the salad that came with it was remarkable. Note that the menu states it is cash only, but they gladly accepted our credit card. Had we known, we might've ordered dessert but didn't want to use all our cash and have an ATM fee

Very good latte ! My favorite place to spend some time between lectures as the coffe is near the Vienna university. Food is also great . One must try the French fries. Customer service is very friendly.

Francais Cafe is an ideal place to go with friends. I recommend booking, because of the high demand. The one of my choice of menu was very good, the onion soup and the salmon quiche. The cafe is good too. Price quality is adjusted to the market of the city.

We stumbled on this busy brasserie for lunch after visiting the nearby Freud house. Popular with local professionals. Service was attentive and friendly. We were in and out as quickly as we wanted to be. No pressure to leave though. Food was excellent - I'm a vegetarian and found many options, including an excellent falafel, couscous plate.

Central location, better than average food at ok prices, busy atmosphere. Often too busy, the atmosphere becomes less cosy and it is hard to get a good table or be served within reasonable time. The wine list was a bit short too. But overall a good pick to get a different food experience.

The meal we had here was amazing although the prices are a bit high. Food is very good especially breakfast and the coffee is divine as well. Nevertheless, the prices aren't really low but it's the center of Vienna so the view is beautiful.

Very busy place at rush hours. Good wines. Big portions. Very friendly stuff. Lil noisy at rush hours since it's a big hall. Very simply furniture. Big tables, perfect for big groups. Has a party space in basement

Really nice menu for breakfast/brunch, croissants super fresh, big and tasty omelete with spinach and cheese Fresh juice and nice coffee (not to warm, gets cold quickly) Unfortunately most of the staff have a French arrogant attitude.... the few that don't are actually really nice Space loudly but vibrant, nice for morning coffee
