Great little place, different take on sandwiches

Found this little place after reasoning about it in the lonely planet guide. It's very central, just across from Stephensplatz but down a little alley. As you walk in, it's a little strange going though some heavy curtains into a dark room.... However the food was brilliant and so many different... read more

This has to be on your list if you are in Vienna. The open face sandwiches and small little mugs of beer are a local tradition that is not to be missed. Try to miss the lunch and dinner hour as it gets very busy. There are two in the city but we always enjoy the original location.

The open-faced little sandwiches are an easy way to get a quick bite. However, of those that we tried, the variety of flavors was not that great. The toppings seems to have a similar base. It was perfectly fine, but one visit was enough for us. We later tried the open-faced sandwiches at L. Heiner Konditorei, and those were much... More

We popped in for lunch. Luckily it wasn't too packed. You go down the line, point to your choice, and pay at the end. They give you colored chips which you give to the man around the bar and he gives you your drink. The sandwiches were delicious and you can get many different ones because they are so small....

This is a real place. an experience. It is a soup Nazi style where you have to point out quickly to the sandwich you want or the lady will get upset...the food is fresh, not fancy but simple tasty. Just see how many people are there around you. Where else can you get this type of food...

Trzesniewski's is world-famous. A must to stop in and try a selection of small finger sandwiches and small pfiff's of beer. This location was close to St. Stephan's and even though crowded...moved exceptionally fast. Do it!

I really love to try local delicacies and I believe this place is one of them in Vienna. It's a very small place which you can only have what they have available: many types of different open sandwiches, maybe canapés if you will. They are really delicious but you should consider them as an afternoon snack or maybe breakfast not... More

A great choice of fresh finger-size sandwiches in the hart of Vienna. Enjoy your selection with a glass of wine or a draft beer. Very good idea for a quick bite in between sights in the center of Vienna.

When you are shown 20-25 different types of small (2inch?) open sandwiches, without an English menu and you need to order quick as (at least) 5 people standing behind you, it is a chaos! But that is what makes this place "a must" visit. When we visited during a lunch hour, we went thru above custom with much delight. It... More

These opened face sandwiches are fun, we filled our plates and tried almost all of them, all were great. Located in Stephansplatz, the main plaza. They close at 7pm so don't go too late because they sell out!

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.
