After spending the day at the MMA, we relaxed here with a coffee (the Kaiser melange in my case) and a piece of Viennese pastry. The Cafe Sabarsky is expensive, but what it does it does well, and I doubt there is better pastry anywhere, the great cafes in Vienna included.

The Cafe Sabarsky is a Viennese themed, very popular restaurant in the Neue Gallerie. We went there to sample some of their desserts: Kaiserschmarrn, Pallatschinken, Linzer Torte and Sacher Torte. While generally pricey the quality of the food is very good, and the staff was friendly.

Here they concentrate on the food they know and don't try to be all things to all people. Housed in the Neue Gallery the cafe offers uniquely Viennese food - freshly made with quality ingredients. From their goulash to celery root and beet salads to seasonal chestnut puree soup - we found all to be tasty and satisfying. They had... More

Reminds me of Cafe Central in Vienna. But, be warned--its is expensive and you will have to spend $20 for two coffees and a pastry. All and all, however, far cheaper than spending on airfare and hotel. And so visit the gift shop--a fantastic selection of books, posters and whatnot.

A beautiful room, lots of very rich pastries, mediocre service, and usually crowds waiting to get in.

Sachertorte, Rehrücken, Würsteln mit Senf, Wiener Schnitzeln und Café mit Schlagobers, Gösser Bier und Stiegelbrau .... And much, much else with swift elegant waitrons, great service. Always packed with long lines. Tip: you'll get in past the lines if you go up to the door guard and say you are just here for the café.

A beautiful coffee room with lovely cakes and drinks. Don't be tempted to go to the overspill café downstairs - this room is worth waiting for.

It was cold, windy and rainy as were walking on the upper east side. My husband wanted goulash soup and there we were at the Neue Galerie! I don't normally think about dining in a museum but the 2 restaurants in this place are really quite good if you like German food. Café Sabarsky is in the basement and was... More

The Cafe Sabarsky at the Neue Galerie in Manhattan is a cozy, charming place that evokes a Viennese cafe from the turn of the last century, down to the Austrian and German language newspapers available to read. It serves authentic Viennese dishes, delicious open faced sandwiches, a selection of Austrian and German beers, excellent coffees and desserts, and an accommodating... More
