Had a veal schnitzel and it was excellent. Very generous portion sizing. Staff were friendly and polite as well. An English menu was available on request as well.

If you're near the Mirabell Gardens and looking for a friendly place to grab a drink, this is an excellent choice. They have a wide selection of liquors, teas, coffees, beers and soda. The location is great as it is not in the heart of the tourist area but a quick enough walk. The service was excellent and the atmosphere... More

Inside looked a bit dated, but the patio setup on a quiet street was lovely. Mostly locals on the evening we visited. Schnitzel was terrific and staff was very accommodating to our little birthday party group of four!

Right upfront I will say that the goulash soup we ordered was pretty good. The soup is the only reason I didn't award this the coveted '0' star award. The waiter made it clear that he was waiting on us because the only alternative at the time apparently was root canal surgery. I consider myself a pretty good tipper but... More

here we received an excellent breakfast for the normal price - everything was very tasty. In the evening we decided to eat here again - and didn't regret. The goulash soup was one of the most tasty i ever ate. Coffee is fine, the atmosphere - sincere. Persistently I recommend.

This cafe is frequented by more local people than tourists. The Sunday brunch buffet is really good. Tea, coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice is included.The strudel is the best I have had in Austria.

We arrived back to our room late on a rainly evening and found other area restaurants booked or closed so we dropped into Cafe Wernbacker for a meal. The atmosphere was delightfully dated, relaxing, and cozy. Our meals were delicious. We had a risotto dish with asparagus and shrimp that was so good that we requested the recipe. The chef... More

We visited Cafe Wernbacher after checking into our nearby hotel on a cold and showery evening. We wanted to enjoy a glass or two of wine after a long train trip from Dijon, France and the concierge recommended this place. The ambience was very pleasant - warmth, decor, lighting, comfortable seating - and there were some good wines available by... More

I visit Salzburg regularly to visit friends, unfortunately one of my favourite cafes, fingerloos was closed so we went next door to the Wernbacher which was a big mistake as the waitress who served us was probably the most miserable and rudest female i have ever had the misfortune to come across, her surly and abusive manner certainly put us...

A local suggested I go here for lunch. I really enjoyed the experience. I had an unexpectedly fantastic Greek salad with a beer. Instant service. The waitress knew I was a short timeline and she made every effort to expedite food service. Great local food. Not packed with loud tourists.
