The venue offers outside seating. The nearby road has quite a lot of traffic, so this is not a quiet place. If you want to enjoy a fine meal while letting the city flash by, sitting in between rather young clientele, enjoying the nice view...More

Café Francais is a busy place with a good atmosphere. Students form the nearby Vienna University love to be there. Food is good. The salad I chose had too much dressing! But overall, a nice and cosy place. Coffee is excellent.
