Loved the energy, the food and the waiters are good looking!!

A great place just to be. Coffee fantastic and the pastries really delicious. A lovely lady comes by with a tray filled with samples (please, no self service here!). They have their own special coffee and serve it with various liquors and other touches. We sat for over an hour. Read the... read more

A very long term establishment but very poor coffee and service.. The cakes were also mediocre. It looked like they cared more about about collecting the bill than service.

I had, by far the best Strudel here that I have ever had in my relatively long life. Perfect pastry, not too crunchy and not too soft, fresh tender apples that still tasted like apples and not mush, a perfect blend if cinnamon and sugar (enough to soften the sharpness of the apple but still leave a hint of tartness)....

Even for coffee fanatics, the mocha coffee with cream here is great. Add to that the choice of traditional, delisious Austrian sweets, it's a "go-to" historically and wonderfully appealing choice. Large public rooms and cozier side rooms allow for many guests in winter. Outdoor tables in summer expand the choices off the corner of this square. Wait staff are fast... More

A real Viennese coffee house - in Salzburg. Upon entering it's like travelling back in time for 100 years. The big main room has wooden interior paneling and the waiters wear their typical uniforms. There's people sitting at the tables for hours reading newspaper. And of course drinking coffee, in all the typical Austrian variants. They also have excellent cake... More

Tomasselli is a classical coffee house located in the heart of the Old-Town, opposite to the Faculty of Law. The café is the oldest coffee-house in Austria still in operation. Established in 1700 as a 'Kaffeausschank' for students it is since 1852 owned by the Tomasselli family. Seized by the US Army in 1945 it was known until 1950 as... More

OK, so it's a historic Salzburg café, in fact Mozart and his mates used to hang out here, so beat that! We expected it to be pricey but hey, it has to be done. So we went in. The staff were friendly but smart & efficient, the furnishings handsome and traditional, with lots of wood and a relaxed vibe, newspapers... More

Beautiful old cafe with lots of history located in old town of Saltzburg. Traditional cafe with Austrian food and with waiter service. Very popular with locals and tourists and very busy. Apparently Mozart and his family used to eat there! We loved the atmosphere of this cafe.

Had the opportunity to stop for a cup of coffee in this place, though it's crowded (because I guess it's a well known place and it was raining) we still found a place to sit. The chocolate cake was delicious and the coffees too. The lady staffs were not really friendly (probably they're tired). The place, the furnitures are well... More
