The default menu was good enough and tasty. Of course, beverage is not included, you need to pay for what you order to drink - water, wine, cofee, beer or any.

We had a light lunch after touring Schonbrunn. The soup was hot but flavourless. The cakes were like rubber. They have a captive market at Schonbrunn and we should have known better than to eat there.

After having a taster at the strudel show wanted to try more. Display cabinet of pastries was tempting but the strudel won. Sat inside very comfortable seating. Terrace was busy. Strudel was best we had. Service was efficient and friendly. Strudel 5 star coffee 3.

Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow
of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has
interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence
and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the
other half to discover the secret charms of this posh
residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at
Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down

Residence of Imperial Pleasures. The Habsburg family resided in their summer residence, Schönbrunn Palace. from the mid 18th century onwards. In 1904 emperor Franz Josef declared the palace as his main residence. Following this great tradition, the Querfeld family named the cafe they established in best Viennese tradition, "Café Residenz". Our guests at the Café Residenz are served with imperial delicacies such as our coffee specialty, Maria Theresa, and even one of Franz Josef's favorite dishes, the Tafelspitz, a boiled filet of beef. You will also find the tradition recipe of Kaiserschmarrn, a shredded pancake made with raisins and sugar. The bakers to the crown, "Hofbackstube," are located in the stately vaults below the café; special apple strudel shows are held every hour. The facilities of the Café Restaurant Residenz are reserved for our non-smoking guests. If you wish to smoke you may do so on the terrace of our café.
