We were wandering around Vienna after dropping our luggage off at our hotel when we came across Cafe Stein. Set over two floors plus a large outside area we decided to sit upstairs - one: we didn't want to sit outside and two: all the tables on the ground floor were reserved ;-) The walls... read more

I visited this café by chance. My family was headed to Italy in the evening so we just wanted a good meal before the overnite train ride. We had visited Rathaus Christmas Market and found this place. Food was great! The service not so. Have to wave wildly to get attention. I would have spent more on drinks if they... More

We had a very nice lunch here one day. Atmosphere was fine, beer and food were good. Friendly staff as well.

Good food for the price - lots of students and locals and away from the main touristy areas - the menu is only in German but the staff speak English; (usually) good service unless very crowded; open until 1am; free WiFi; reasonable lunch deals (Mittagsmenü) Having been in Vienna for three months, I still don't understand why people say that...

Cafe Stein is a contemporary legend in Vienna. It has no decade-long tradition and it is no classic Viennese coffee house (there are some in the vicinity), but Cafe Stein attracts students, artists, day-passers and is simply a friendly place. Today, they have many tables outside which fill up quickly on a sunny day for lunch. The set lunch is... More

It was one of the first decent spring days when I went there for lunch… therefore their terrace was filled to capacity… I ordered their daily special menu which consisted of a cream of wild garlic (= Bärlauchsuppe) and sauted dumplings with bacon and egg (geröstete Knödel). And it was divine! The service, was nice and efficient. But, because it... More

I had a nice time at Café Stein. The service was good and prompt. The food was ready really quick and it tasted good. The place was clean. It had free WiFi. Even though it's located in a central part of Vienna, the prices are quite OK. I would definitely come back.

Don't go there! It's one of the worst restaurants I've ever been to. They seve the wrong stuff, charge too much and want tip. There is really no big choice of meals and expecially breakfasts are not quite different and much too expensive. E. g. a breakfast with jam, a hot drink and a pice of pastries costs 5€. +... More

We ended up here by chance, but it was pleasant enough. It was quiet so we could talk as we drank our beers and it had a no-smoking section (not always the case in Vienna) so that was good. My main complaint - and it repeated itself time and again in Vienna - is the service. The waiters always manage... More

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
