Wonderful fresh and affordable. I spoke to a couple near me and they loved their salads too. Great service and fast. I'll return!

Pumpkin and goat cheese burger was so tasty and perfectly filling after a whole day on my feet. Wiener melange all the way!

We happened upon this cafe when looking at the Judischen (Jewish) Museum. There is not a lot of seating and people don't rush, but we did finally get a table. A modest menu but very good food. Informal staff and a relaxed atmosphere. The prices are modest (for the area) and the limonana very good (Israeli mint lemonade).

My wife and I ate here before visiting the Jewish Museum in Vienna. She had a Greek Salad and I had lox and bagel. We each had a cup of Ben and Jerry ice cream. My wife had a diet coke and I had two glasses of Apple juice. Total was under 30 euros (about $33.00 US). It was worth... More

After touring the beautiful and amazing Jewish Museum (a must see for anyone travelling to Vienna) we were quite hungry and thirsty, and decided to take a break at the Cafe Eskeles. The food was delicious, not overpriced, and oriental. We had limonana to drink (an Israeli Mint Lemonade) and I ate a mozzarella tomato bagel (so delicious)! We all... More

We found this cafe by accident and had a lovely lunch here. It is part of the Jewish Museum but there are tables outside where we sat, as well as inside. We had lovely falafels in pitta with tahini sauce. I had a good Israeli wine and my partner had a Maccabee beer. A nice spot.

We stopped here for lunch and the food was fresh and delicious. The hummus was some of the best we have had. The lox on a bagel and the tomato and cheese bagel was such a nice change from the heavy (but yummy food) that we had been eating in Vienna. I would definitely recommend this place just slightly off... More

Tasty food for breakfast, lunch or a snack in a welcoming cafe that is open from 9 to 6 six days a week. One special dish each day of the week. Reasonable prices. Good service .

This tiny lunch cafe is a gem. Great Mediterranean food for low prices. My wife had the falafel with hummus, which tasted outstanding. Personally, I enjoyed a salad with cheese and raspberries. Only minor point (that's why 4/5) is that they only accept cash. We did not book in advance.

Eskers is the cafe in the Judischen Museum. It serves lovely fresh food in bright modern surroundings... Lachs Bagel was gorgeous and makes a changes from the usual sandwich choice. Will definitely come back.

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
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 and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
