    Kahvesi muhteşemdi. Kafenin içerisi çok küçük ve kalabalık, girişte biraz sıra bekledik ama değdi. O kadar güzel otantik bir havası var ki insanın gidesi gelmiyor.

    Do not ask for the menu, it is on the wall, written by chalk on a small blackboard. Rude and unfriendly staff. Buchteln mit Powidl for 10 €. Not worth the price thanks to outdated interior and waiters

    Evet belki eski ama daha güzel yerler var. Diğer kafe ziyaretlerime bakın göreceksiniz. Melange kahvesi ve Elmalı pasta en güzel seçenekler. Menü yok garsonla hallediyorsun.

    It has a historical and vintage style. But coffees are so expensive. We paid €9 only for two coffees!

    Definitely one of the most authentic Viennese cafes. Expect to wait cause it's always crowded...but totally worth it. Amazing apfelstrudel.

    Pessimo. Una volta arrivati abbiamo aspettato 30' prima di prendere l'ordine. Menù di tre opzioni detto a voce dal cameriere(prezzi ignoti) . Cioccolata tiepida e senza gusto. L'atmosfera è ok.

    Это туристическое место, где подают совершенно отвратительный кофе! Десерты тоже не представляют из себя ничего! Но кофе хуже, чем в автомате, за 4,20 евро – это невесело. Есть места и лучше

    Eğer buraya gelirseniz mutlaka buchteln yemelisiniz. Tüm Avusturya'da sadece burada satılıyor ve çok leziz. Eskiden direkt kurucusu yaparmış ve şimdi de oğlu 70 yaşında her gün kendisi hazırlıyor.
