I'm usually a sucker for traditional spots like this but on this occasion the lack of atmosphere and bad attitude staff was so disappointing. Within 5mins of sitting down the waitress was over with a tray of cake slices "what you want" heaven forbid we'd wanted a salad or sandwich. Clearly this is an establishment full of history, so sad... More

Walked in and nobody in the acknowledged us. We waited at the door for 10 minutes and then seated ourselves. We sat there for another 10 minutes and no one acknowledged us so we got up and left. Poor service

One of the most traditional looking cafes in Alstadt. We visited Cafe Tomaselli for lunch. We felt that the food was slightly overpriced for the quality and quantity. The servers weren't the friendliest of the lot as well. Not a must visit!

A traditional cafe in the Altstadt, we visited for lunch and a cake on our first day in Salzburg. The food was average, nothing particularly special or worth the price tag when it comes to an omelette and cheese platter with bread. The lady selling her cakes was formidable, carting her tray of bakes over to every table as they... More

Excellent bakeries and multiple choice of tastes...the whole Austrian patisserie available. The service is typical Austrian / Bavarian kind but not too kind but very efficient. Enjoy!

Stopped in here about 11AM and it was packed, as it seems to be most days all day. We had cake and coffee and it was marvelous. The place is traditional and you need to be patient, but it is worth it. This is a must experience for anyone visiting Salzburg.

A classic cafe with very nice environment and average quality of coffee. Service is slow and waiters arrogant and unfriendly. Needs some new people in service to freshen up the atmosphere.

This I do not rate. Bad service and cold got chocolate. Went twice this month and both times the staff were surly and not happy. Overrated but a lovely building.
