I wrote somethings about vienna cafe that where unfounded! I was angry and lashing out over personal issues and what i said was untrue and grossly unfair. i am sorry about that and hope I haven't caused too much damage? The staff are polite, artistic, friendly and i highly recommend cafe Vienna to anyone visiting nelson!!! Effy, a server there,... More

OK so its #32 in the list but we tried it because people raved about the eggs benny; I am an eggs benny convert. I've disliked hollandaise sauce forever, but i would eat the ones here any day. You can only get them on a weekend though. Another neat feature to this place was that it was part of a... More

Had eggs Benny. Was very tasty. Unfortunately for weekday travelers they only have it on weekends. One of the best Benny's I've had and would recommend it to anyone.

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.
