Although this is a historical landmark, the place was packed, service rude, wait time for seating was long. Be warned that upstairs seating is for smokers. Ended up leaving after 15 minutes and went across the way to Furst Cafe which was wonderful.

Rather similar to the grand cafes in some Italian places The vibrant atmosphere alone makes it worth a visit. I'm not sure I would eat anything more substantial than cakes there.

Right in the centre of the Old Town and absolutely packed. We were lucky to get one of the best tables as a couple were just leaving. Then found there was plenty of extra seating upstairs. Excellent large expresso for about 4 euros as was my wife's capucino - similar price to other smart coffee shops. We'd heard of offhand... More

Fabulous coffee and huge selection of cakes. The waiters are dressed in suits and very formal, very efficient too. The waitresses only serve the platters of cakes. It is one of the oldest cafe's in Salzburg - delightful experience.

Anyway this place is a buzz of activity they converged on here between 2-4 pm for afternoon cakes, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. The waiter was pleasant and prompt, the cake lady was surly. The system is this the waiter serves drinks, the cake lady serves the cake lady serves cakes each gets paid separately. This is strange to those who... More

On a chilly day, we pushed through thick curtains into the interior of Café Tomaselli, the most famous coffee house in Salzburg. According to the blurb, Wolfgang probably enjoyed his ‘Almond Milk’ here. Maybe! The place was buzzing with lunchtime diners, served by smartly attired waiters. The men for coffee and menu fair, the women bringing to our table an... More

I'd heard bad things about the service but the waiter who served us was friendly, (looks a bit like George Clooney!) so we had no problems there. It wasn't the quickest service but we were not in a rush. The Mozart's almond milk is lovely and the ham and cheese omelette was too and kept me going for ages. Bewildering... More

The place is great. A Salzburg landmark and must do. Try to secure a place at the outside gazebo/open area. It combines the great variety of food and drinks plus an extra charming atmosphere while enjoying the passersby and hustle and bustle of the pedestrian area. A great place.

The historic building and staff are worth the extra it costs to enjoy a latte on the balcony in Salzburg Zentrum. The gluten free cheesecake is a lasting memory for me.
