Nice presentation

This cafe is one of the oldest, if not the oldest in town. It has a nice selection of drinks and desserts. We stopped for a coffee and a cake lady soon presented us with a variety to choose from. We shared one and it was delicious. I ordered one of the specialty coffees with the white chocolate... read more

This cafe is located in beautiful location, try to seat outside or in the terrace. They offer a good assortment of cakes and drinks. The hot chocolate is very good and the sacher cake too. The service is good but it's a bit expensive.

Good location and a large selection of cakes , not somewhere to go if you want a break from the Salzburg crowds, when we were there it was busy and noisy inside. The ordering system is unusual, you have to order and pay for your drinks from one person and cakes from a different person, a tray containing a selection... More

Was introduced to this place by a friend who had lived in the city for a couple of years. We arrived shortly before closing but managed to squeeze in a few coffee and chocolate drinks which were excellent. Didn't try any food but by all accounts it is perfectly acceptable. Will re visit when back in the city.

On a rainy day we were looking for shelter so decided to try it out. the guide book did say that the grumpiest waiters in Salzburg could be found here and they were... More

This bustling café is a must-do while in Salzburg. It's supposedly one of the oldest cafes in the area and the years have definitely been good to this well-established eatery. We enjoyed a wonderful Cappuccino and the people next to us were having a late lunch. They do it all here and with excellent presentation and friendly service. It's a... More

Mozart visited this place daily when he lived in Salzburg. The café still exists. You order coffee first. If you want pastry/bakery, you can order it but will have to pay separately to the person who serve you dessert, which is different from the person who serve you coffee/drink. Don't know why that's the case, but this is how they... More

Went to this cafe looking for good pastries and the Austrian famous strudel, and by mid afternoon they were out of strudel and only had some poor tasting (and expensive) cakes. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.
