If you want coffee, coffee and something sweet, or a full breakfast this is a great choice. Service and quality of food were well above average. We had breakfast here the first full day in Vienna, and enjoyed our meal so much we made sure to return. One block from the Opera House and close to Nashmarkt. This is one... More

Wonderful breakfast just around the corner from the Secession Building, is an authentic Viennese cafe originally opened in 1899 and frequented by local artists - including Gustav Klimpt! The architecture is Secessionist and the Breakfast omelette was adequate and substantial but not super special. The atmosphere, an eclectic mix of intellectual looking people and dogs, and the traditional tuxedo coats... More

On a walkabout of Vienna, we came across the Museum Cafe. It looked inviting from the outside, so we went in and found a nice table for 2. The waiter brought the menu, and there was quite a selection to choose from. We chose a Ham & Cheese Toastie with French Fries and Grilled Chicken with a Spring Salad. Accompanying... More

Called in on the offchance after an opera performance, got seated and served swiftly. Can't say the food is brilliant (salads etc.) - but typical of standard elsewhere in tourist cafes in Vienna.Waiting staff extremely pleasant and efficient. Prices on a par with elsewhere (i.e. much more expensive than London).

I ate there schnitzel and Kaiserschmarren with coffee and it was great food. The service is excellent and the place is relaxed and comfortable for all guests including children. Prices are very moderate and you get great quality for that. Very recommended if you want to have good meal in a good place.

We walked into the Cafe Museum wanting some quintessential Viennese cuisine. A couple of local beers. Check. Magnificent weiner schnitzel with cranberry sauce and the most divine potatoes. Check. Delicious apple strudel with vanilla sauce. Check. Mozart coffee that looked like a piece of culinary indulgence. Check. Great service. Wonderful old-world atmosphere. Check. You think we loved it? Check!

This famous cafe is good for singles or groups. Just look at the map before you go. If coming on the tram, then get off at the Kartner Ringstrasse (Opera House) stop and walk the opposite direction of the old quarter. If on the U1/U2/U4, then get off at Karlsplatz. Cafe is on a corner sort of between Karlsplatz and... More

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.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
