My husband and I have visited the cafe for breakfast a few times. I enjoy the friendly service and library/bookstore atmosphere. The food is tasty (specifically the breakfast sandwich), and the price is right. Very local and cute.

We always love the food, fresh and wholesome and ever so tasty! But as much as this we love the atmosphere of Pack Rat Annies which is part of the Vienna Cafe. Here one can browse used books [which you can take to your table while eating and peruse] Cd's and Vinyl new and used. Bonus, one can also listen... More

Love this place, always tough to get a seat at brunch on the weekends, but worth the wait! Super atmosphere, and you can browse the books while waiting.

Good place for breakfast or lunch. Love the weekend Benny selection. Nice home fries nice salad. Good coffee. Popular spot just off Baker street. I still go often but this place needs a thorough cleaning.

We decided to eat out for breakfast, this place had decent reviews. It is situated with second hand book shop. standard breakfast fare but nicely done, great homemade jams and marmalade. Friendly wait staff, not expensive.

This little gem is hopping busy ! Sunday's have a 10:00 opening and this particular day was eggs Benny specials - all sorts! Super quick service, lovely staff and we enjoyed our visit with Ian. Nice to see an owner still chatting with customers after 10+ years and delivering dishes and taking orders. Seek this one out as they are... More

My niece and I usually get together for just coffee or tea, this time I decided to take her to lunch as a treat. Since I was already browsing for books at Packrat Annie's (one of my favourite hangouts with the cafe in the same building) I asked her where she wanted to go. Since she's eaten at the Vienna...

Love the proximity to Pack Rat Annie's and sitting next to the books. The food is fresh, wholesome and leaves you feeling nourished. It's certainly not fancy and doesn't try to be. The staff are super sincere and helpful - happy to visit and lunch here over the holidays.
