As in any other cafe in Vienna beside excellent coffee, cakes and sweets you may have a serious meal - soup and/or sausage, goulasch or schnitzel. Try mazagran - coffee with maraschino. In the evening live music - violin and piano - very good quality,...More

Had Viennese soup - not bad - and Wiener Schnitzel that I honestly think is overpriced, couldn't finish it even though I still could have had more. Lesson for me - check the TripAdvisor rating before trying out a restaurant!

I can't comment on the quality of the food as the service is non-existent and when a waiter does look your way it is with disdain. We went in during a not very busy time and still were unable to get served. When we finally...More

A nice place to sit. Very 'Old Vienna'. Some of the food seems acceptable. Some is not. Main complaint is the arrogance of the waiting staff towards tourists (and I do not mean just those who arrive bulging out of shorts and transparent T-shirts). They...More

This is a great cafe to visit. We did several times. You MUST try their potato soup and their hot chocolate. So so good. I love sidewalk cafes anyways and Vienna is full of them. You can also dine inside. It's a beautiful restaurant. Be...More

It is sober looking serious place. Per se not child friendly. However, we saw children and prams when we were there. I would think it can be done.
