This place is buzzing. Had their house special dessert...excellent and their delicious coffee. How wonderful to just sit in a place where Mozart once frequented for hot chocolate and simply people watch!

Our hotel recommended this place as having the best coffee. It certainly was better coffee than another cafe we visited earlier the same day. The cakes at the other place were more appealing than here so we didn't order any here. It was very busy but the service was still reasonably friendly and efficient.

While in Salzburg recently we visited Cafe Tomaselli twice once sitting downstairs and the second time upstairs. On both occasions the cafe was near enough full and one can't help being aware that the seats and tables are fairly close together. On both occasions the service was very efficient and as my wife commented the waiting staff certainly earn their... More

The coffee and the ambience were great, but I thought the pastries were just ok. In contrast to what my guidebook said, I thought the servers were friendly and sweet!

They say it's the oldest cafe in Western Europe so we were curious to visit it. It's a big place with various areas, quite busy and quite cosy. A really interesting idea is that there is a lady who only sells cakes shown on a tray - it's difficult to refuse. And you order coffe or food with the waiter.... More

During our recent two day visit to Salzburg, we ended up going to Cafe Tomaselli three times! Their coffees and teas are delightful and so are the various tortes and other desserts! They are a bit on the expensive side, but a few extra euros spent here are well worth it.

We were at Cafe Tomaselli in August on family vacation. We stopped in for Breakfast. The Breakfast was very good. If you love lots and lots of butter you will love Cafe Tomaselli. My husband had the omelet which looked more liked they baked it. The melted butter was oozing out of the omelet!! My husband said it was delicious,... More

My partner ordered a coffee, me nothing. He said his espresso was ok, likely every mediocre espresso in Europe. We come from a coffee Mecca, FYI. Quick stop. Bustling. Seemed to be filled with locals despite being in a tourist hot spot. Cakes looked yummy but didn't order one. A cozy place to get out of the damp, cold, and... More

I travelled down to Salzburg from Vienna by the morning train on a snowy December month . My office colleague from Vienna had strongly recommended that we have our breakfast at Cafe Tomaselli , so we visited it. It is right in the Center of Salzburg and a well known landmark. We had the breakfast which consisted of an omelette,... More
