I had a great time here. It is an old Viennese style cafe. They don't have menu here but feel free to ask they have to offer today. I would recommend to try Viennese coffee while reading old style newspapers.

We asked for a menu and were told "It's on the wall." It was, behind an old coat rack full of coats. We ordered apple strudel and was told the special was better - buns with plum sauce inside. Without seeing the price, since it...More
Café Hawelka is a fabulous traditional café which, although experienced its peak in the sixties and seventies - even inspiring a Georg Danzer's 1976 song Jö, schau (...was macht ein Nackerter im Hawelka), is still very worthy of a visit.
