In the center of Vienna and the range of cakes and pastries is just true "Vienna", especially the " Dobosh" torte, cannot wait to visit again!

The service was okay, perhaps a bit too formal. Maybe they are just too busy (or complacent) - the traditional chocolate cake (Sachertorte ) was dry and the jam was just 'hidden' too well. Maybe it was lost in translation, but my small cup of coffee turned up as an espresso... Not cheap and not that good either, so the... More

This place could easily get five stars, they have excellent cakes, a cosy cafe and it is a great place, but the staff are indifferent and not very friendly, it isnt a place i would visit again and i cant recommend it

This place had the best pastry/cake selection of anyplace we went - it was stressful trying to choose and I changed my mind at least 10 times! Our server was patient and very sweet. It was crowded and a bit loud, but the wonderful cake and coffee made it worth it. Great location in the middle of the city center!

A well-known pastry shop in Vienna with a wide range of sweet things on offer. I took Klimt tart, my wife House Tart. Both were pretty good, but not really to die for. Honestly, I expected much better quality, particularly taking into account rather high prices and the reputation of the place. We also had to wait some time to... More

This is a traditional cake shop the way many used to be. these are hard to find today and it is well worth the effort to go here. The cakes are indeed masterpieces as they claim. The service can be a bit standoffish, but that was the traditional way. they have tables both inside and out.

We actually visited Gerstner's twice, which is quite unusual for us. The first time we stopped for lunch. It was a chilly day so we had soup. The goulash and the potato soups were excellent, then we had to have dessert. I had asked for a slice of the truffle cake, but ended up with something else-- turned out excellent.... More

We stopped for a much need break to have some strudel and was pleasantly surprised at the wide range of cakes/strudel/baked goods. Sat down and ordered the home-made iced tea and apple strudel with vanilla cream. The cream was like baby-food custard and was delicious - and the strudel was stuffed full of apples. We were not disappointed, and would... More

We were in Vienna for a week of seminars, and were lucky to have a long lunch break in the middle of the week. After lunch, we went to K&K, and were immediately greeted by staff and a huge display of cakes and ice cream. We had to wait a bit for a table, but we got one and were... More

We went to this cafe/restaurant following the reviews on tripadvisor. Basically, the pic of the outside is accurate, but makes it look a little bit more upmarket than it actually is - the cake is lovely, but its a bit of a formica table type cafe than a smart cafe - so if you want the cake with no frills...
