    One of the most known traditional Viennese cafes with live piano music, great ambiance but huge many times difficult to find seating but recommended especially during Xmas time !

    It's a beautiful building and the desserts are fabulous, however the coffee is not a big deal. Priced to the location.

    케이크 주문하는 법: 진열대에서 번호를 기억하셨다가 서버에게 말해주세요. 직접 가져다 드립니다.

    Beautiful place, classic viennese café. Busy place at weekends, so arrive early to avoid a queue. Free wi-fi available. A bit expensive in my opinion..

    War ok... Muss man aber nicht gemacht haben. Gibt sicher einen besseren Kaiserschmarrn in Wien.

    Cafes, piano music, cakes, tasty, but it's place only for tasty sweets and good for small groups. Overcrowded, book a table in advance. No chance to eat for vegetarians

    If this is the best apple strudel then my sister is the God of apple pies. The place is nice though and the service is good. And I liked the schnitzel
