I came here to meet up with a couple of friends who were also in Vienna last December. It felt like a very traditional place - small, lots of locals, lots of second-hand smoke in the air, and lots of chit chat in all directions....More

(Un)luckily we sat in the back and saw what happens in the “kitchen” - they didn’t hear a thing about basic hygiene. The cook puts food on the plates with bare hands after cleaning the bar counter - didn’t even think about washing them first....More

We visited several times during our stay as enjoyed it so much we had to keep going back. An incredibly welcoming and friendly atmosphere with equally welcoming staff. A must visit for either a quiet coffee or a few G&T’s!

Tiny place with a terrace on a small square, lovely to sit and look around enjoying Coffee, Beer or Wine with something to eat. Inside smoking of cigarettes is allowed (huh?).

If you visit Vienna in summer there is nothing special about the little café because you are sitting outside in the square...which is fine but not so very different from another coffee shop in Vienna (except from that American "coffee-horror" Starbucks which any coffee loving...More
