Description: Café Museum has been a location frequented by many geniuses of the 20th century.Since its inauguration in 1899 it has been a meeting point for painters,writers, composers and architects. Mid 2010 the Café Museum was taken over by Berndt and Irmgard Querfeld. The importance of a high level comfort is something the Querfeld family have always been very aware of and therefore they have decided to restore the original Zotti design back to its original glory.

“Good service and delicious cake”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

The decoration of the cafe is posh compared to other cafes in Vienna. The waiter is very friendly and serves me promptly. They speak English so don't worry if you cannot speak any German.

I ordered a Turkish coffee and a slice of Esterházy torte. It was my first time to try Turkish coffee (I had enough coffee melange so I wanted something different). It is a small copper pot of coffee with a small cute cup (for you to pour coffee in). It also comes with a small glass of water and one Turkish delight. The coffee is nice to drink and it is fun to pour the coffee out from the pot into the cute cup(but remember to shake the pot well because the coffee will sediment at the bottom). I have never try Esterházy torte before. I think the cake is delicious (nutty flavour cream sandwiched between layers of cakes). The Turkish coffee costs €6 while the cake costs €4.90 (if I remember correctly).

There is a cake display fridge inside the cafe. If you are not sure which cake to pick or if you want to check the size of cake, you can walk inside the cafe to have a look before ordering. All the cakes look delicious and I wish I could order all of them.

One thing to mention is that the cakes are supplied by Landtmann's Patisserie so you might see the same cake menu as the Cafe Landtmann.

“Great Atmosphere, good food, excellent service”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We stopped by for dessert one evening and ate outdoors, came back a couple of nights later for dinner indoors. The indoor seating is definitely the place to eat. The restoration brought back an old school atmosphere that make the visit worthwhile. The food is classic Austrian, the service is efficient and friendly.

“Ask for Soup with with liver, meat and knodel”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Very nice cafe, old fashioned chairs, red velvet sofas, portraits of famous visitors, cleanliness ... excellent dressed waiters , polite and quick. The food is very tasty, pastries and fine beer. Despite the proximity of the opera - the prices are acceptable.
