Cafe Museum may be an underdog to the glamerous and historical Demel but it is well worth a look in. We arrived mid afternoon for coffee and cake and while it was busy we found a spot inside. We were served promptly by the bilingual...More

The Viennese cafe is many things to many people. Are you going in for cake and coffee? or for a main dish? I have to judge this cafe on what we went for, dinner. We had goulash soup (rich and tasty) and a salmon and...More

I think it's best to ask when you arrive but I think they might be able to do it upon request.

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 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.
