Good ice cream desserts in historic location

Enjoyed two fancy ice cream sundaes in this famous cafe which were delicious. Sat outdoors on the front patio. Waiter was a bit abrupt. Very limited menu; specializes in drinks.

Location, space, specialities, staff. Excellent! It recalls the grandeur of the good old days when luxury was not to be seen or announced. Either in the terrace or inside take advantage of the quality of the most simple and tasty specialities or just have an expresso served with the traditional glass of natural water.

Their claim to fame is that they are old café located in a historical building. We had iced coffee on a hot summer day, and it was the same coffee we could have gotten anywhere. The restaurant didn't seem to be air-conditioned, it was very hot inside. Service was sufficient.

My wife and I stopped by Tomaselli cafe during our late evening stroll in the old town, we had a couple of drinks, which ere fine as expected, no surprises here, but the real surprise came when a lady came along offering us to purchase some deserts, they looked scrumptious, so we went along and had a couple of pieces,...

If you love sweets, than you are in the right place. There is a reason why this place is so famous (and crowded while I was there) Ice coffee was just great (served in a real silver cup...) The ordering process is unique, the drinks being ordered from the waiter, while for the cakes you need to wait for the... More

This is a nice little cafe located in the heart of Salzburg's Old Town and a great spot for an after dinner drink and desert, a morning coffee and pastry, or the best omelette of your life.

Upon arrival in Salzburg we walked around our hotel and we saw this beautiful cafe which we decided to visit the next day for breakfast. We had no idea it was the oldest cafe etc etc, we only found out once we sat. We ordered to a very indifferent waiter, far from polite, who just took our order and left.... More

I wouldn't go back. The waitress was very rude. The cake was less than average. Coffee... well, ok. The decoration is very nice though.If you are lucky enough to get a table on the balcony I suppose it would be nice. Maybe this is the only reason someone would go there. Touristic trap I would say...

Enjoyed the atmosphere and is definitely a place to take in dessert and coffee. However to miss Demel desserthaus is a travesty! Must get the chocolate bombe. The best chocolate thing I've ever had! Ever. Was there in January 2011

We just popped in here on our way elsewhere and were won over by the service and excellent cakes on offer. The decor is a delight and with the history of it being a haunt of Mozart's it was a delight to be there. It was extrememly hot outside but we were comfortable inside . Recommend for chocolate and cake... More
