The ultimate place to be, should you need to taste the real sweetness of Sofia. Cosy, warm and friendly, excellent ice cream experience in the heart of winter. The other chocolate temptations will never fail your taste. Άψογο μέρος, πραγματικά καλοφτιαγμένο, νέα διεύθυνση από ό,τι διαπίστωσα, εξίσου καλή εξυπηρέτηση και εξαιρετικά γλυκά και παγωτό. Προτείνεται ανεπιφύλακτα.

Just been to this lovely cafe at the back of Alexander Nevsky. The outside is nothing out of the ordinary but inside is very classy. Beautifully designed, quiet,with classical music playing. Just had coffees and delicious cake served warm with a vanilla sauce. Such a sanctuary from the smoking and loud music everywhere in this otherwise glorious city. If you're... More

Had a coffee and some cake here after our visit to the Alexander Nevski cathedral & Saint Sofia church. The venue isclassical and it's a very good place to have a nice sit-down and conversations. Our coffee and cake were good but not excellent. The staff was very friendly. I wouldn't specially recommend this place because it think it's pretty... More

After we arrived we had in this Wiener Cafe a beer, only from the bottle, four varieties, and some pancakes with chicken and vegetables, and my wife had a Bulgarian salad. This was followed by an excellent Wiener melange. Quality and prices were okay. They offer a rich variety of cakes and pies.

No matter how it is ranked or considered by most visitors we found it as being a posh place with an unkind and arrogant service. Moreover, one of the waitress told us that wifi did not work despite my cellular clearly received the signal. I only asked to have the wifi password. After having showed there was wifi signal on...

Here I had a genuine experience of a Viennese Nostalgic atmosphere. AMBIENCE: The Wien Café should not be missed if you love classic atmosphere, peace and quiet, and an enjoyable time-out with a pleasant Viennese music at the background. Elegantly decorated, the interior travels you. It is not a touristy restaurant, not a cheap one and the people coming here... More
