We dropped in for some refreshments - coffee, cake and tea. The cafe was really busy and we were very lucky to get a table for 2. Pointers about the place: Atmosphere - great! The interior was really well decorated and fun! Cakes - really good! Tea and coffee - great selection and loved the teapot! Soft drinks - unique... More

After so many wiener schnitzels, sausages, potatoes, dumplings and pretzels...you might need a break from the heavy Austrian diet and the constipation that goes with it. Plus the decor and ambiance here is groovy! Its so out there from the rest of Salzburg. Its a mostly younger local crowd; I think we might have been the only tourists in there.... More

Interesting place with very good food. We had the set lunch that comes with chicken soup n pork cutlet and a chicken meat. Had a good Salzburg beer recommended by the waitstaff.

After receiving very poor service throughout the rest of Austria this place was a breath of fresh air. Friendly, efficient, quick. I had a salad bowl with chicken and bacon - it was huge, chicken was full of flavour, all nice and fresh. We also had a hot dog which was tasty as well. Chai tea came in an interesting... More

After strolling round the Old Town we stumbled on Afro Cafe by pure chance and it was a delight. They have a range of different wraps and sandwiches which was exactly what we were after. The portion sizes were very generous as well with plenty of vegetarian options, something that isn't always that common in Austria. I must also include... More

They also have a large selection of teas! My mom and I had the breakfast for two one morning and it was huge! Croissants,... More

This place is a real experience. Buzzing with people and music it's a very cosy, intimate place but that is also a bit higgledy piggledy too. Once we finally got seated and ordered the food arrived quickly and was so large in portion that my other half and I shared a wrap with fries!! It was good cafe food and... More

We have family and friends that live in Salzburg and Linz. Our friends brought us somewhere new that we have never been too and I have to say it was a good experience. I recommend the wrap was very tasty!!! It is very busy so you may have to book of staying in the area, however they did accommodate us... More

Our son had been to the Afro Cafe while he was in Salzburg and recommend it . It was absolutely fantastic, we actually went 2 days in a row! Lamb Kebabs were my favorite and the Rosemary Spritzer is delish. Ostrich burgers where really great too.

I met this small cafe by chance. The environment was very nice and it was full with people. The service was fast and the waiters friendly. I tried the club sandwich and a strawberry mint soda, which I found delicious overall and in good prices. I would definitely recommend this place.
