Love the atmosphere

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... read 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.

We had heard this place, right in the centre of the old town, was a brilliant place for coffee and cake. Well it's true, it is. Not too expensive and a great place to people-watch. Linzer torte and hazelnut cake were delicious. Just a word of warning; the cakes are all on display inside the café. A waitress serves the... More

Beautiful view of the platz and a lovely environment. We just stopped by for drinks and to relax and rest our feet. The menu had many options for food, drinks and desserts. It would make for a wonderful brunch spot. Our waiter was very attentive, sweet and helpful!

We went in for coffee and cakes and it was an experience in itself. The old world charm flows from the decor, the feel of the place, and from the staff as well. The staff is genuinely interested in the customers and seem to enjoy what they do. That gives a relaxed feel to the cafe. Cafe Tomaselli was the... More

This is a must visit in Salzburg. Drinking coffee and eating apple strudel here is an original Salzburg experience. If the weather is good prefer the terrace for a better view of the square and the people walking around.

We will NEVER go back to this "cafe" if it can be called cafe. The service is the most rude and unfriendly I have ever experienced. We sat on an empty table ( we sat ourselves after waiting for more that 20 min for someone to take care of us) and a very rude waiter told us to stand up... More

We had a great brunch on Sunday and it definitely looked like locals came here which makes it more legit and less touristy in my opinion. The Apple Strudel and Tomaselli coffee were delish!

Beautifully served but unfriendly staff. The egg dish was so buttery from the cheese iit was difficult to eat. The coffee was good but we had just as good other places where the staff was actually glad we came.
