Old world charme, old cake, also.

The Cafe Vienna looks nice from the outside and is probably a neat place for expats looking for some real european atmo.The coffee was also quite good, the cake though really not at all worth talking about it..thats why my rating is just 3 stars.

It is a little european cafe hidden in the Former French Concession of Shanghai. The place is held by an Austrian man for more than 10 years. Great coffee and authentic cakes, really like in Vienna thanks to the Austrian cook and imported ingredients (Swiss baking chocolate, butter, flour, milk -- all imported). So if you search for a good... More

I visited this place for Sunday brunch (all you can eat for 150 RMB / £15). The venue is very quaint with attention to detail on the decor. The service was fantastic, accurate and fast. The food was also really good. A Viennese buffet including delicious breads and a speciality sweet dish. It is definitely worth a visit.

I discovered this cafe during my walk from Fu Xing Garden to Tian Zi Fang. What a surprise! The cafe serve fairly good coffee and light meal. I ordered cappuccino with ham and cheese sandwich. Overall a cosy place to relax your feet and mind. Food quality: good Coffee quality: very good Service: fair Environment: good

While my Chinese wife and I generally steer clear of western places in China, the Vienna Cafe is an exception. The Chinese idea of breakfast of rice cereal flavored with fermented tofu works some of the time for me, but really a good western breakfast is something I enjoy even when every other meal for a month is Chinese.

While traveling for work my co-worker brought me here for coffee and dinner. I must say the place is just lovely. The coffee was great and the meal I had was also very good. Finding such a lovely quaint place in Shanghai is a pleasure. I will definitely come again.

Breakfast was very nice, the waitress was delightful. The cafe is quite small, suggest you arrive as early as you can for breakfast. Would definitely return if in Shanghai again.

Went for breakfast on a holiday morning. Surprisingly not full which suited as well: very quiet, relaxed breakfast, classical music in the background, good bread/coffee/eggs/juice. Herbal dip is Kräuterquark :-) unfortunately just one table really outside, some seating with glass roof so close to being outside. Cake looked very good but we did not dare try one and were anyway... More

Very nice little neighbourhood with nice bars/low key restaurants. Perfect place for a lunch if you are in the proximity. Is one of the favourite afterwork place among the expats.

I am Vienese living in Shanghai and whenever I miss the Vienna atmosphere I go there to enjoy good coffee, Vienna news and the nice talking with Peter, the owner, and his staff.
