Small but delicious menu based on fresh foods. Recommend the spaetzle. Wonderful desserts. In the same premises as a used book and music store for great browsing.

Vienna cafe is not a place that either instantly appeals and that doesn't change when you first enter the place. However my omelette and my companions spicy chicken salad were delicious. For the quality and quantity of food we would go back. In addition the male server (wearing his real men wear pink t-shirt) was very well mannered and charming... More

Upon walking by i wasn't sure if i was at the right place. Once I entered the smell of a delicious kitchen and old books hits your nose, a seemingly perfect blend for the atmosphere. I ordered the general all day breakfast plate and it was served in 8 min or less. The waitress was very kind and helpful at... More

We love this little place! And we call it Pack Rat Annie's which is actually the name of the second hand book/music store in which it is locate. Great fresh food, great local coffee, fun wait staff and books everywhere, what more could you ask for?

This place is a living proof that you do not need a famous chef to serve excellent food. Even though we were hesitant at the first sight of the place, our hungry stomachs dictated the urge to find a place for breakfast, so we sat in this library like cafe. And we were not disappointed ! Eggs benedict were cooked... More

I have been eating at the Vienna for over 10 years. As time goes on, I eat there less and less. The Front house staff right now are excellent. Best they have had in a while. But, the kitchen is where it counts. The food is never predictable. Today a simple order of 2 eggs with home fried potatoes and... More

The owners at the Vienna make every attempt to buy locally grown vegetables as well as locally sourced eggs and meat. With more and more people becoming conscious of "100 Mile Diets" as well as avoiding the hormones and chemicals in commercially produced meats, this restaurant is a top choice. The decor is funky, with mostly amateur art on the... More
