I went to this cafe for breakfast and I was not satisfied with the service (a little icy, without even the shadow of a smile), nor with the food and definitely nor with the cappuccino, which was bad. Bill was tasty instead.

Wander past Vivienne Westwood's classy shop without going in! The Café is a few doors down. set price menu includes aperitif, starter, main, dessert, bottle of delicious local wine, and 'cover'. Incredible value. I had pork in the most delicious sauce! Very simple place, used by locals. Attentive service, tasty, hunky (I'm assured by companion) chef! But who cares, boy, can he cook! We all had FAR too much food, and reluctantly had to eave some. Well worth searching it out, only a short walk from the Stephansplatz.

I have eaten on three occasions and each time the food was very good. However, one thing missing is the lack of the fixed price menu as it tends to be on a bit too expensive (and filling) if you want to have more than a principal course.. It is definitely worth visiting -- the new chef introduced a variety in the daily offer but kept the traditional cakes (ah, their strudel - try it)!

This is, hands down, my favourite cafe in Vienna. It may not be as chic and famous as "Sacher" or "Demel", but it has a certain, authentic Vienna-coffee-house atmosphere which you almost don't find anymore as simple, down-to-earth coffee houses are replaced either by generic, huge chains (horrible and overpriced) or sterile, modern "lounges". Cafe Markusplatz is THE PERFECT coffee house to come to if you would like somewhere comfortable, warm and cosy to sit down and read a book in, flip through a newspaper of magazine, sketch or make notes. Before I knew what it was called I used to, fondly, call it "the train cafe", because it's booths make it seem like you're sitting in a 19th Century train compartment, on your way to great adventure, enjoying the scenery ... which brings me to my next point: great, great place for people watching! Typical older ladies in feather hats, posh young Viennese men, bearded intellectuals... the walls are decorated, as typically in Viennese coffee houses, with advertisements for museums, art shows and book readings, and fresh newspapers are readily available for all to read and enjoy every day. Cafe Markusplatz is more than just a coffee house (serving, it has to be said, very good coffee and homemade Viennese cakes - also, nice lunch menu with soups, main courses and wine/beer list) - it's a hidden gem. Thank you for the many happy visits there - I look forward to many, many more.

Lovely restaurant and friendly service. Had great beer and the food suggestions were helpful as we couldn't speak the language. Definitely go back again
