This is a typical Viennese place, with a pleasant atmosphere, relaxing if somewhat noisy. Food on the menu includes many local dishes, and everything we had on our previous visits was very tasty. Not far from MAK, museum of applied arts, this place works well for a meal after a museum visit.

This is a classical Viennese coffee house. It's a little noisy, full of smoke (the "non-smoking" area is a sad room at the back of the coffee house), and the focus is clearly on having a coffee or a glass of wine with friends. It is very central and open late.

Not a particularly pretty space, but there is a big room in back where you can get away from the smoke. We had a delicious smoked trout tartare on a bed of mashed avocado with thin thin sliced onion, it was really good. Also an arugula salad with potatoes and kind of fried chicken nuggets. With one glass of Gruner... More

I stumbled across this restaurant while wandering around Vienna, looking for somewhere that wasn't a tourist trap for dinner. Upon seeing quite a few locals heading in, I lucked out and got a table straight away. While some reviewers have complained that the menu is only in German, I found the wait staff extremely helpful in helping me decipher anything... More

A place frequented by locals; there are options in the menu for a good dinner as well as lighter snacks for lunch and a decent selection of Austrian wines by glass; seating arrangements include large smoking and non-smoking areas.

A friend of mine and I decided to go have breakfast at the Cafe Engländer today based on reviews both on this site and reviews on local websites. I will quickly get the good out of the way.

Even though the menu was only in German we managed to order an excellent meal. The head waiter speaks English, but on the evening we were there was too busy to really help. Take a chance and go-- you wont be sorry.

Our bed and breakfast owner recommend the Café Englander for our last night in Vienna. The menu was in German, but our waiter was great and went through each item in English. I ended up ordering the Wiener schnitzel aud veal cut with potatoes lambs and my wife had a pasta dish with mushrooms. Both were very good. For drinks... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
