“Slow service, ok food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

We went for lunch after reading reviews and driving past as it seemed like a hip looking place for a coffee and food. The service was extremely slow and although my wife and I ordered together, my meal was over 30 minutes after hers had arrived (I had to ask for it as I feel it was forgotten). We also waited quite some time for the bill after asking for it as we had to meet the rest of our group. The Apple Strudel was amazing but for me, thats the only possitive.

“Authentic Viennese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is really more of a local place where people come for lunch from their offices. the food is very good. The service and helpfulness is fantastic. We had difficulty understanding the parking regulations and how to get a ticket. The waiters went out of their way by not only explaining how to purchase parking tickets, but taking us to the shop where they are purchased. The serving staff was upbeat and friendly. Definitely recommend.

“Nice place, but not very touristic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We had lunch at this cafe. The meal was tasty, but we had difficulties in choosing the menu, since the list was only in German. Luckily it had some pictures that helped us in choosing. Tha con: the employee who served us was somewhat unhelpful with foreigners in comprehension difficulties. But it is worth visiting ...

“Authentic Viennese Coffee House experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Authentic Viennese experience - I'm not a coffee drinker and this was the best coffee I've ever had. A really neat experience after walking through the Christmas Markets and enjoying the atmosphere of Vienna.

“Come here for the authentic Austrian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

The best Fried cheese I have ever tried! We found this place by chance during our previous visit to Vienna. This time we had to come back. And we did it twice :) First time we ordered two Wiener Schnitzels and two beers. It was delicious. The next time i ordered fried cheese and my partner ordered Breaded chicken liver. We got two huge dishes and just could not stop eating it. The staff is very friendly. Come at night and you will find english-style pub.
