We arrived at the cafe around 3pm after completing some Christmas shopping in the market and we waited for ten minutes to be seated but the waitress and waiter completely ignored us. In the end we felt so unwelcome that we went elsewhere which was a real shame as I had been planning a trip here since we booked to... More

if you wanna go for a traditonal "coffee" place, this is were you have to go. The cakes are delicous. They are served on a tray and you have to choose, quite unique. The waiter we had was very friendly. located in the heart of Salzburg i really advice to go.

Found this cafe on a Sunday morning. Needless-to-say it was packed and we found a table in a back room. One waitress brought the drinks and cakes. Chose 2 different cakes but both were overly filled with creme and very little cake. Went back the next day and sat in the main dining area. Now you had to order your... More

We went here on a saturday afternoon for a cup of tea, not to the actual Cafe but to the Kiosk, which is near Residenzplatz, but still considered Cafe Tomaselli (the menu was the same). We were greeted by a rude waiter who sat us outside (we asked for it and he didn't agree at first). When he came to... More

lovely buzzing atmosphere and obviously popular with locals which tends to be a good sign. Can get very busy but the service is very efficient and it is well worth a short wait to get a table. The cake choices are brought to your table on a huge tray- gorgeous and pretty naughty.

We popped in for a quick lunch on a busy Christmas market day. We were not greeted or acknowledged in any way, hence no 5 satrs here, but when we had managed to secure a table that was being vacated service was quite quick and polite. A little confusing that you have the order the cakes separately from a waitress... More

Full of character and history, but also poor food and 'out of touch' service. If you want to say you have been there go by all means, its a glimpse of Salzburg in the past. Unfortunately the service and quality is 50 years behind the times and I wonder about the cleanliness. A slice of toast with ham and eggs... More

This cafe always seems to be busy but if you wait until most of the local punters have had their coffee and cake and then go in (after 4pm) the place really clears. Early evening was pretty clear. Waiters in black tie, maids bringing trays of cake to your table and posh local residents make it a great people watching... More

My husband & I went for coffee and cakes ended up having a lovely meal. The atmosphere was lovely both locals and tourists from all over the world were eating and drinking. The place manages to maintain a mystique, it's worth sitting enjoying the wonderful experience and characters that frequent this establishment.

We slipped away from our tour to enjoy Aperol Spritzes out on the terrace of this beautiful historic cafe. With lore that Mozart himself sipped drinks at this restaurant, it seems like an obvious stop. This was a delightful place to just slow down and enjoy the experience of being in the historic center of beautiful Salzburg on a sunny... More
