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.

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
