We had two burgers (one with chicken and one with beef and jalapenos). They were very good, especially the spicy one with jalapenos was excellent. Near the center but away from the big crowds. The staff was very friendly. Easily recommended place.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Cafe Mendez while visiting Vienna! Delicious Mexican food, excellent service... the staff seemed to really care about the customers and the food that they were serving to us. Will definitely return my next time in town!

Perhaps it was because I visited later in the evening when they were slow. Burger was just ok. Strudel was cold. Disappointed.

Quesadillas and burger - an excellent choice with nice ambience. Small place so booking is advisable.

Mexican food in Vienna, I was very skeptical, and the best coffee, hmmm. Well, the cortado was the best I had in a while although there was a hint of burn reside in the taste. And the food, ¡mucho savor!

An unusual spot in Vienna with a fun and warm atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff, specialty coffee, tequila and craft cocktails. A place, where you can feel yourself at home ;)
