I was recommended this place by a lovely local lady. Very popular with the locals. No touristy feel to it , which was great. Coffee and drinks are good. But I didn't try any food so cannot comment.

Our Frommers guide book recommended Café Korb for its apple strudel and it wasn't wrong. It was warm and delicious. The café was atmospheric and the service was excellent.

We had tried to get into 5 previous Viennese cafes before we came across Cafe Korb, it was obviously a very busy Saturday afternoon for Vienna. We did have to wait for a table but less of a queue than the other cafes. The waiters are dressed up in black ties and they were definitely run off their feet. I... More

Just around the corner of my hotel, the Cafe Korb is an excellent place to have a nice coffee while reading a newspaper or a book and just watch some locals. Despite being very central, the atmosphere is not so "touristic" inside. Service is Viennese (a little phlegmatic), but nice.

We came across this place by chance, just looking down the side streets away from St Stephens place. The decor is nothing to note, very plain. But the place was busy, had an authentic local menu, and friendly staff. You can get a good, filling dinner for a good price. The toilet signs were quite unusual - you will have... More

We had a delicious lunch here of Weiner Snitzel and Beef Gulasch. The service was friendly and efficient. The ambiance was of a local cafe cum eating house full of Viennese who had wandered in to read the papers, drink a beer with friends, eat lunch or sip tea. It was great - not at all smart, just right. My... More

In the last several days we stopped at Cafe Korb twice. The first experience was not bad, not great, but not bad. The first time was on a Saturday morning and the cafe was busy. We both had breakfast and coffee - food was average and service average and as far as value goes - expensive for what you get.... More

After asking the locals for a recommendation for the "best authentic Apple Strudel" in town we were recommend Cafe Korb, so after a night in the wine bar we set Google maps the task of getting us there and wondered off into the night. The Strudel was everything promised and the Cafe buzzing with locals having a late night coffee/meal.... More

We were walking around the inner city after a late dinner, window shopping, taking pictures and looking for somewhere to have a latte and a beer. Most places close at 10 pm (2200) but this one is open until midnight (2400). I had my latte, my husband had a Pharisaer Coffee (double espresso with brandy and whipped cream) plus a... More

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.
