This place is a real gem for those student-inspired travellers - a little bit lyrical, musical, artistic. Great atmosphere altogether and a good drink can be had. Go and inhale that Vienniese feelling.

Recommended to us by our guide. The experience was exactly what we expected from an authentic Viennese coffee house. The coffee was great and the Sacher Torte was divine. 9.10 euros for the cake and coffee per person.

There are many cafes in Wien. Hawelka is one of the most authentic one. There is no menu (u have to read it from the blackboard). Very delicious coffee comparing to other famous ones with only beautiful decoration.

The Cafe Hawelka is a perfect place to relax, sip a coffee, and people watch. It is a perfect location near Stephanplatz. No menu but they offer typical cafe items. I had a coffee with milk which was perfect. The best part is the people...More

Nice place to enjoy your coffee in the very center of the city. The disadvantage is that there is no menu available so as to choose what would you like to order. So you have to give your order with no picture about the prices....More

Service was terrible.I don't like this cafe Hawelka. I was waiting for a long time.and I asked stuff about Menu and Order many times. but stuffs ignored me.....I couldn't order and drink...I was sad...I never go again. るるぶに”老舗店で有名”と載っていたので、行ってみました。 まず結論から、「スタッフの対応が最悪で、結局何も飲まずにお店を出てしまいました。」 いくら待っても注文も取りに来ない。注文のことを聞きたくて4度声をかけましたが、忙しそうにして相手にしてくれませんでしたし、怖かった、、、 カウンターにも足を運んでも「スタッフが行くから待ってろ」とのこと、、、 カフェってこんなにハードル高いものなの!?wその後も相当待ちましたが、こんな所で飲む気がなくなり、飲まずに出てしまいました。 悲しい、、二度と行きません。

Their pastries are not good at all. The apfelstrudel was dry and not tasty. I can make it better myself. The cafe itself and the interiour is completely worn down and extremely ugly. Service was OK. Avoid at all costs!!!!!!

Don't even go and try anything. No need to waste time and money here. The cakes are not delicious and the staff are very rude
