Lovely Austrian dishes and pastries. It's a bit frenetic on a busy and cold winter day with a full museum, but still a very pleasant atmosphere. Service was very attentive and un-rushed. We had a beautiful bottle of Austrian wine with our spaetzle with vegetables...More

We ate breakfast which was very good, but the stars are the cakes- we had the Klimttorte and Sachertorte, both excellent. The coffee was very good, but the hot chocolate was excellent, made with real chocolate, very rich! Altogether a very enjoyable experience.

If the line here is too long, feel free to check out Cafe Fledermaus in the basement (same menu), but we found the line moved quickly enough and the Sabarsky had a charming atmosphere, although the tables are a bit too close together and we...More

Our waiter immediately replaced my rock-hard Esterhazyschnitte cake with the delicious Feuilletine. But why was it not good in the first place? Was the inedible cake layer stale? Was the whole thing just served straight from the cold fridge? It was very cold. Don’t they...More
