A quite little cafe, a short walk away from some of the main streets of Vienna. I went for breakfast with my family, where we were greeted with friendly staff (all of which spoke english). The menu was quite simple but consisted of very delicious...More

Slightly off the beaten tourist track this Café has been a regular hangout since my school days – and every time I visit Vienna my trip wouldn't be complete without a Großer Brauner at Kleines Café. The outside seating is good for people watching in...More

Vienna's smallest cafe is definitely worth a visit. Their kitchen is simple, but the food that comes out of it is marvellous at a cheap price. I recommend the ham and cheese omelette. The atmosphere is unique and authentic, complimented by friendly and helpful serving...More

I returned to the "Kleines" on a short break in March, in fact I popped in every day I was in town! I was staying at the Marriott hotel on the Parkring, which is a cockstride away, round the corner. This iconic Viennese institution functioned...More

A classic! Best in the summer when you can sit outside on the terrace, although observing the regulars and intellectuals inside philosophizing about life is also fun! (If you manage to find a seat)

Lovely cafe, small in size, off the beaten track. Just had an win spanner and apfelstrudel, but food other people were eating looked good. Nice feeling in the place. I imagine it can get a bit livelier in the evenings, given all the spirits behind...More

There are few places in old Vienna where you don't find yourself tripping over or constantly rubbing elbows with tourists. Kleines Cafe, an old-style but trendy Viennese Kaffeehaus, is one of them. If you're looking for a Starbucks experience--standardized, sanitized, orderly and predictable--this is not...More
