    Eine der ganz großen Touri-Magneten. Das Angebot an Kuchen & Co ist deliziös, das Publikum kann durchaus auch einmal lokale Bekanntheiten beherbergen.

    Avoid waits at later hours (close to closing at 10ish). The cakes are just about the right sweetness

    You definitely have to go here if you're visiting Vienna. It's a lovely experience and a great place for afternoon tea. Once you're at a table go up and pick your cake from the decadent selection!

    Meşhur diye geldik ama kendimi ankara otogarında seyit ustanın çay evinde gibi hissettim. Meşhur diye elmalı pasta yedik ama elmalar bildiğin çiğ geldi. Bi de üstüne kapıda 20 dk sıra bekledik..10/2

    Tatlı ve kahve. Aslında ne yiyip içtiginizin önemi yok. 150 yıllık bir mekanda bulunmak o havayı koklamak kimbilir kimlerle aynı masalarda oturduğunu hissetmek yeter
