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.

Really lovely and cosy Café in Shanghai. I love the Sunday Brunch where you get real bread, cheese, fresh fruits, eggs etc. for a total of RMB 145 p.P. All you can eat! It is a great escape of rushing Shanghai because the atmosphere is really nice and smooth.

Great atmosphere -- comfortable for an afternoon coffee and dessert break. Tried the plum cake and apple strudel -- both excellent and taste authentic. Good coffee as well. A bit pricey but worth it.

Great coffee, cake as well as a small selection of lunch dishes. Nice atmosphere away from the madding crowds.
