Cafe Braunerhof is an ideal place to have lunch in an authentic athmosphere. Service is good and the food is tasty. Don't be discouraged by the looks, this is how it should be.

We stopped in for a quick lunch today and really liked this place. It has an "authentic" feeling about it. Service was very good. We didn't eat much... Just two nice omelettes with salad but they were very good. I have no hesitation in recommending this cafe for lunch. .... Also it is not far from Graben.

Beside the most grumpiest waiter I have ever met, this café possesses charm thanks to the live symphonic trio. The music lifts you up to a long forgotten era. The café's decoration seems to be as old as the café itself. Just don't expect a friendly waiter or a yummy cake (the Tropfengugl was out of the freezer).

This is an old-style, slightly jaded Viennese coffee house in a really good location. We went for breakfast, for which there was a good selection, the real star though was our waiter. He had clearly modelled himself on John Hurt and had a very dry sense of humour. Well worth a visit for both the ambience, the food and the... More

A rarity amongst many of the Vienna coffee houses. Completely smoke free establishment with great coffee and good selection of cakes. Friendly welcoming service.

For a taste of city centre old _Wien style coffee house : unpretentious, slightly worn, seen better days perhaps....this is a good typical coffee shop. The lunch menu is a little limited but you can still have tafelspitz or schnitzel at a fair price, or just sit for a long time over newspapers. I mark down only very slightly as... More

We were in this cafe today and the standard of service from the bearded waiter, mentioned by some other reviewers, was rude beyond anything I have ever experienced anywhere in Europe. His hostile behaviour frankly bordered on racist and shows Vienna in a very bad light. The coffee was ok, soup tasty but rather cold. The waitress on the door... More

We went late morning and sadly missed breakfast but we had a charming waiter who was helpful and courteous. The food was fine with nothing to complain about. I liked the authenticity of the place and feel as a tourist it may be worth the risk of the grumpy waiter in order to experience an old fashioned and genuine cafe... More

I see that many others have had a similar experience of this cafe to us. I've been visiting the Cafe Bräunerhof for years, and I love it, because it's a wonderful old Viennese cafe. However the older waiter with the beard really is extraordinarily rude. I've experienced this numerous times because he's been there for years. He is much nicer... More

One of the oldest and most traditional cafés in Vienna, I have visited it quite often in the past. But today, as I wanted to enjoy breakfast there with my mother, I was shocked by the extremely rude behaviour of one of the service staff. The place was nearly empty when we arrived around 10am. Nobody took notice of us... More
