Was out for breakfast twice this week. Heard The Vienna had good Eggs Benny and wanted to check it out. Went on Thuirsday and found out they only have it on the weekend menu. So had an omellte instead. It wasnt bad at all. Was surprised to get a salad with it, would have prefered more potatos instead. Hopefully next... More

been there a few times over the years. Menu's boring, but offers some organic and vegetarian fare. Waitstaff is usually a bit odd; come to think of it, the whole scenery is a bit odd/weird. Americano is so strong it'll knock you flat. Think you can waltz in and eat after 2pm? Not! It may say 2:30 on the door,... More

I came here with my family and we all love each of our dishes! I ordered the small (Nelson) spetzle and salad and it was amazing and filling. Will definitely come back!

I love this little cafe!! For so many reasons! Super funky, it's in a book/record store, the staff are super chill and very accommodating, the portions and quality of the food is a real bang for your buck. Get in there on the weekend for the best eggs Benny!!

A very relaxing place to go for a few hours of enjoyment either with friends or alone! Vienna Cafe offers food as well as good service as well as having Packrat Annie's right there to peruse their used books.

Great value in an interesting atmosphere, books and all kinds of patrons. Meals are tasty and come well prepared. Some of the servers are very slow and cannot handle more than one customer at a time. IF the manager is around things seem to speed up as he checks table to table, which a good manager should do.

So when visiting Nelson BC you must stop at the Vienna Cafe. Ma + Pop operated, friendly service, quality & quantity for a normal price, record/book store attached....if you are into breakfast joints then, by far, this should be number one on the list.... Vienna's Eggs Benny is the best in town and this place also cranks out spaetzle (a... More

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
