We went to have breakfast because of the high rating, vicinity to our apartment and a certain fame this cafe has for local artists and intellectuals frequenting it. The experience was slightly underwhelming. No more croissants or brioche on a Sunday at 10 am...this stuff...More

We only stopped off for coffee which was ok. In fairness we did not eat and the breakfasts looked generous and smelt good. Seemed to be more of a local place. Service ok but surroundings dull and not particularly welcoming.....

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks
such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),
Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’
former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as
Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse

Prices were mid range. Not what I considered expensive for the Innenstadt in Vienna. Food was good. Service was a bit rude. But it was filled with locals rather than tourists. Hope you enjoy Vienna.
