The heart of the cafe is the locals that share this unpretentious space. Time stands still with the tattered wallpaper, a smoke stained ceiling (from a time when smoking was a must) and the quirky furniture - and you wouldn’t want it any other way....More

I love going to places were you'll find more locals than tourists -- this is just such a place! Cafe Jelinek was a nice place to start the day for breakfast. The pace is slow and leisurely, so not a place to go if you...More

Great local cafe for a classic Viennese breakfast. Good quality food and big serves. Excellent service from the staff. In a quiet street with shade, so you can sit outside comfortably, and it inside is a a lovely look into the past with vintage furniture...More

This. This is what I'm talking about. Their chocolate nut cake can give the Sacher Torte a run for it's money any day of the week. A lovely shabby chic old school Viennese cafe that hasn't been too updated, gives you a cozy feel of...More

This place was perfect for an afternoon coffee with my partner. We would have loved to sit in the front room but instead we got to explore the back room. The whole place is quite lively. Coffee is awesome. I had the Häferl Kaffee with...More

Really nice, traditional café with Austrian cakes and sweets. Coffee tastes excellent. Service is nice! Cosy place.

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with
