The Cafe Sabarsky is on the first floor of the Neue Galerie Museum. One can enter the Cafe without paying the museum entry fee which allows eating there without a museum visit. The Cafe instantly reminded me of the many small restaurants my wife and I ate at in Vienna. It has dark paneled wood and wire framed chairs. The... More

After eating and drinking here many times over the years, I think I can say that it is one of my favorite places in NYC. Tasty sandwiches, salads and entrées, and leckerlich desserts all add up to a not to be missed experience. Many different types of coffee with whipped cream are real Schlagers. Viennese cafe mit Schlagers, a real... More

This Viennese coffee shop is located inside the Neue Galerie in a beautiful room on the main floor. You do not need to buy a museum entrance to visit. It is located very close to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and it is a good stop after visiting the museum. The coffees were very good. The chocolate hazelnut cake was... More

What a place to try what staples Vienna has to offer and visit Neue Museum (Modern Art in Nazi Germany) upstairs. Coffee, strudel, salads in the atmosphere of Vienna cafe (upstairs with the usually 30 min waiting) and virtually immediate seating downstairs (same food).

All that is good about Austrian food is here -- from appetizers to wonderful desserts. While food may seem pricy, the portions are big, so sharing is an option.

If you want to get an idea of the atmosphere of the viennese cafes before world war II you must stop in this cafe to get at least a very good pastry. The line goes quickly.

They have wonderful dishes, especially in the dessert category with chocolate being a main driver and all with the "schlag" whipped cream. It is another era here and I always enjoy the respite from the day by going here. A little pricey but worth it.

This restaurant is located at the Neue Galerie (German and Austrian art). It occupies a nice wood-paneled room on the first floor of a wonderful old building. Service was good. Their focus is German food. I had the bratwurst, quite good and reasonably priced at $16. Also the apple strudel, OK but nothing special. It was served cold, not really... More

Nice, different, place to have lunch in New York. Quite busy, we went to the basement café, where the menu is the same. Enjoyed my german sausages a lot.

I love this cafe. The setting is straight out of Vienna. The cuisine is Austrian. Wonderful selection of wines and beers and of course there is always the coffee. The service is spot on. The atmosphere so European. The food is great. A special spot that those in the know know!
