“Unsanitary procedures”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stopped at the Cafe for a late desert and coffee. Initially we were impressed with the desert and pastry selection. Then we noticed the manager/owner, the guy with the bushy grey hair, coughing on the deserts and pastries in the display case as he arranged the offerings. He grossed up out when he sneezed in his hand and then used that hand to grab and arrange the cheesecakes and other pastries. He did this repeatedly as if it was normal procedure. We finished our coffees and left.
There is no excuse for deliberately ignoring common health and food safety standards!

“Comfort Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Delicious hot chocolate & mouth watering apple strudel - cozy spot after a long hike. You can sit out on the porch in the warm sun or inside.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Perfectly located in he perfect village of Hallstatt. Very popular (busy) place. No room for me outside, so I ate in the basement cafe. No complaints the food was good, the service, not so much. The staff seemed tired. I would still recommend this place.
