The Cafe Steinhauser, according to a local brochure the meeting place since decades for urban-minded contemporaries, has a great location at Dornbirn's Marktplatz (market square). When sitting outside, facing the big St.Martins Church and the historical 'Rotes Haus', it is fun to watch the comings and goings on the car-free square. It is also pleasant to sit here, because the... More

Steinhauser has been around for as long as I can remember. A favourite with locals, and it's location in the center of the square is perfect. When the sun is out, enjoy a coffee and a slice of cake in the warmth, and look out to the old church.

This cafe is ideally situated on the Market Square in the centre of town. If you decide to stop here, do make sure you try one of their slices of cake. They were delicious... More

In Dorbirn this is considered to be a posh place.... Why? The location is great but the rest is so dated and the service is ok at best. But when the weather is fine you can sit nicely outside and have a drink while looking at the church and market square!

Not worth the effort to order anything here. Customers pretentious. Coffee is okay at best. Decor dated and sad. Snacks and lunch not good either. Nice location but otherwise nothing going for it. There are far better places around.

The Steinhauser in located right in the perfect viewing center of Dornbirn. A view of the prime downtown, in the middle of the shops and restaurants, the heart of downtown nightlife, inclusive in the city market...and just a great place to sit, talk, relax, people watch without having to spoend a boatload of euros. The menu is a bit limited,... More
