I found Afro cafe via Foursquare close to the hostel we were living in. The waiters were prompt to offer us seats and also meticulously explained some of the items on the menu (as we did not know German). The food was extremely delicious. My friends had the pineapple/chicken wrap, and I had the falafel sandwich. Its better than any... More

After a week eating schnitzels it was great to get something else. Especially the prawns piri-piri (Gebratene Scampis mit Piri-Piri auf Zucchinisalat mit Arganöl) were delicious. They have also great coctails and happyhour every day :) Service was okay, credit cards welcome, air-conditioning inside.

The drink menu for this restaurant enormous. They have all kind of drinks from coffee tea iced tea alcoholic non-alcoholic and spritzer. The drink sizes were generous. The service was extremely fast. The portion sizes were small so I don't recommend you go here if you're really hungry. It's more a place to linger over drinks. I did not want... More

This place is very close to Museum of Modern Art. Visibly bright with fantastic decor and a nice menu. We loved the wraps, dips with pita bread and vegetarian selections. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for something different from routine Austrian or Italian cuisine in Salzburg.

we loved the food here. It is very close to the modern art museum. The food is very tasty, we tried some of their dips in the starter menu, which were very nice. there is a lot of food, and it was tough to finish. very tasty and yum.

Great coffee shop in Salzburg. Totally feels out of place from the outside but once you enter the cafe, you will feel right at home. Friendly staff, and most of all, excellent coffee!

After listening to a classical concert in Schloss Mirabel, we were looking for a cafe to enjoy a hot chocolate, but everything was closed. As we were walking back to our parking place we stumbled across this gem of a place. It's a small place with a lot of atmosphere, great hot chocolate, and best of all No Smoking. Try... More

The main course was pretty good, the waffles average by best, the waiters very nice. Overall the portions are way too small though, even after two meals I wouldn't be full. The high prices do the rest. The colourful interior is worth seeing at least.
