The gorgeous dark, warm decor of a Viennese cafe welcomes you, along with a scrumptious-looking pastry bar. With one exception, everything we had was delicious. The menu has a distinctive Austrian flare - sausages, coffees, smoked trout and ham, strudels & cakes. Ironically the one...More

The ambiance is great. Its like taking a time machine back to preWW1 Vienna. The service was great. Our party of three had a great luncheon.

This typical Austrian restaurant is attached to the Neue Museum and woth a visit. The Schnitzel and Hungarian goulash was great. The Apfelstrudel was very good. Come early for lunch or book.
