They take credit card! The coffee was delicious and the Linzer Torte was delicious. Service was great. Will go back if in Linz again. Very clean bathrooms as well.

I cannot even begin to understand how people recommend this venue as the number 1 bakery for the famous Linzer Torte, and how the bakery itself abuses this reputation so blatantly. I ordered a slice of Linzer Torte and a slice of a layer cake,...More

Konditorei Jindrak is famous for its Linzer Torte which is being made here since 1929. It is the oldest known cake in the world. It is a delicious Austrian torte made by confectioner Jindrak. We bought a small one for €7.85 to take back home....More

Recommended by a local friend, the cafe has decent (not amazing) coffee and is home to the Linzer Torte, apparently one of the oldest cakes in the world. A nice little place to start the day.

A linz tourist website recommended the linzer torte here, so we stopped off after visiting the cathedral. I was a bit disappointed. The cakes were wonderful, and coffee ok, but bought the surroundings a bit basic and waitress staff rather unwelcoming. Not worth a special...More

I found this cafe by chance, not knowing that they were famous for their Linzer Torte cake. Going by the looks of the cakes and my chocolate craving, I settled for their chocolate mousse cake, and it was very, very good. Unlike the other comments...More
