Walked in and immediately knew i would like the place. The staff are helpful and friendly and made great suggestions. It's a 2 story place with full service upstairs. Had the chocolate torte, glass of rose brut champagne, vegan chocolate torte and a Ottakringer (Viennese beer). Nothing disappointed! They have a cute sparkling bar if you don't get a table. Came back the next day and purchased some of their coffee and chocolates to bring home as gifts. I didn't feel the price was too much but that's just my opinion. Definitely worth taking to time to enjoy a pastry and coffee or drink at.

Coffee and sachertorte in Vienna.

We were very lucky to get a table and sat at the bar.

What a lovely setting and the sachertorte was delicious.

Friendly service as well.

We had lunch in this nice restaurant.

I wanted a vienna escalope but unfortunately it was out of order.

Anyway I ordered a pasta main course with chicken and it was really tasty and not expensive at all so a good adress in Vienna where it's not so easy to find a good cheapy place!

Forget Sacher. If you want great confectionery come to Gerstner. Their upstairs 'Sparkling Bar' is wonderful. Choose your cakes from the menu or just have a look at the display case in the corner and pick what looks good. Haven't met any 'rude waiters' during three visits on different days. It's pricey, but worth it.
