We ate here on 10 July. This is an outdoor cafe on Cathedral Square so you know what to expect, waiters rushing around, people smoking and you take a gamble with the food quality. We were pleasantly surprised. We had a very pleasant waiter and...More

Unfriendly staff and low standard of food. Probably too many options on the menu so they do not focus on quality. Location attracts tourists so they do not need to care about getting regular customers.

Lively ambience Good drinks and good food A good choice after a long day of shopping One thing to note, they charged us 2.40 euros for ketchup..!!

Good location of the café, nice setting outside, but the rudest waiter we ever met (and we met a lot of waiters bored with their job). From the beginning, even though he saw that we don´t speak German, he kept answering us in this langiage,...More

Place next to it was almost empty and this was packed, but we did what everyone did and found a tiny place to sit. Coffee is good, food is ok, but the place is just to crowded to really enjoy Vienna.

Husband and I ended our day here, in a crowded cafe that never felt crammed. Perfect for people watching (in cafe, as well as those strolling by) and a light meal. Considering how jammed it was with diners, we were amazed at how swiftly our...More

For an exhilarating and rather whimsical way to start your day, come to this well-known cafe just as it opens at 8 AM on a quiet Sunday. Head for the outside section on the Graben, get a seat along the glassed-in side closest to St....More
