I have seen many documents about the classical-style Vienna Cafes but I have come across just a few of them during my walks in Vienna,so far. This is one of them - a real authentic Wien Kaffee very close to the Stephansplatz, still in very quiet place. You feel it immediately after entering it. We wanted to have a lunch... More

This is a real Viennese local pub. A limited selection of hot & cold dishes. But the price is right.

A typically local cafe - with posters on the walls and chairs that are a bit unsteady. Smiling waitor. The hot orange punch tasted very good, and so did the topfenstrudl. There are to rooms separated by a sliding glass door, separating the smoking and the non smoking area. Unfortunately the door slides open quite often, so you smell of... More

My wife and I have been to this cafe twice in the last week and on both occasions, it was absolutely excellent! Great coffee, good food, fantastic service and a really relaxed atmosphere.

Went in for some coffee and lunch. The interior is super cool, the walls are covered in local posters and it has a neat ambiance/atmosphere. Having lived in Czech Republic where goulash is known for being nothing super special, I went ahead and had the goulash soup and was super pleased!! It was delicious and different than what I'm used... More

According to the positive experience I had in the past, this time I decided to have lunch. You can decide either to order a daily menu at the price of Euro 6,90 (for example mondays Wienerschitzler mit Kartoffelsalad) or a dish (it costs about 10/12 Euros). Beverages isn't included. Some desserts are available (Apfelstrudel is recommanded). All dishes ordered were... More

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
