Description: This famous traditional café with its 130 year history was first opened in 1876 and at the turn of the 20th century it was a popular meeting point for leading lights in the world of art, literature, politics and science such as Arthur Schnitzler, Sigmund Freud, Peter Altenberg and Leo Trotzki. Then, like today, the legendary literature café was a meeting point for all ages, regular guests, Viennese locals and visitors. Unique architecture combined with the best coffee specialties, classic Viennese cuisine and finest home-made pastries make every visit a special experience. Daily Live Piano Music from 5pm on! Reservations are strongly recommended to avoid waiting time - upon availability. Many thanks in advance for your understanding!

We queued up for around 15 minutes to be seated, and it was well worth the wait. The interior of the cafe was beautiful and the cakes were presented nicely too. We got 2 cakes and 1 apple strudel and they were delicious. Would definitely recommend giving Cafe Central a visit!

Just go. Just spend as much time as possible. Everything will make you dream and wonder how life was centuries before. Sweets and drinks are a piece of art!

came here only for a dessert. really beautiful place and even if there's a line it moves quickly.
I ordered Kaiserschmarren and my mother ordered hot chocolate.
the Kaiserschmarren was the best dessert I ate in Vienna. but my mom's hot chocolate was just a sweet coco powder with warm milk. it was a disappointing for her.

Would not have missed this experience, a short wait for a table but well worth it. Lunch was very good and the cakes absolutely delicious. The staff very helpful.

Another great place in Vienna which is charming. There was a queue when we got there but we didn't have to wait to long. The service was lovely. We tried the Apple strudel and apricot jam pancakes which were amazing.
If I am ever in Vienna again I will visit again.
