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

It has a nice atmosphere, a great terrace from spring to autumn, food is a mixture of typical pub food and typical Austrian food, and is always very decent. They have a seasonal menu card too. Did I mention you can eat there any time of the day or evening? The service is OK, nothing great, but not any worse... More
