Yes it's absolutely true that they don't have an English menu,but you are in a foreign country and I guarantee you the waiters can speak enough English. I had some excellent weisswurst here and chatted to some of the locals in the bar.An all round good experience.

We don't speak german and there wasn't an english menu, but the waiter translated every single item of the menu! We ate really well and felt great at the place. Definitely worth it! I would return to this cafe and recommend it to friends.

It's always difficult to write a less-than-positive review of a place that's obviously so popular on TripAdvisor. But ... I was staying at the airport and took the excellent CAT train into the center of Vienna. Walked around a bit and looked for a place to eat. Up a side street I could see Cafe Englander, and it was obviously... More

This place was fabulous. Don't be put of by the menu not being in English it's not that difficult to work out! Goulash was delicious washed down with a lovely glass of Austrian Sauvie. Staff were friendly. Full of locals and nice to be off the tourist trail!!

One might think from the title of the restaurant that you are entering a pub. No, this is a traditional purveyor of Viennese food, at an excellent price I might add. We suggest you might want to sample the würsts. We are partial toward Weiss Würst and theirs is excellent--and served it a pot of hot water to keep it... More

Very close to the Stubendor U-bahn station. The English breakfast is delicious. For 10 euros, you get eggs, bacon, baked beans, breads and sausages. Also a cup of tea/coffee. Very helpful staff. I had breakfast almost everyday here. A delicious way to start my day

This is a classical Viennese coffee house. It's a little noisy, full of smoke (the "non-smoking" area is a sad room at the back of the coffee house), and the focus is clearly on having a coffee or a glass of wine with friends. It is very central and open late.

This is a typical Viennese place, with a pleasant atmosphere, relaxing if somewhat noisy. Food on the menu includes many local dishes, and everything we had on our previous visits was very tasty. Not far from MAK, museum of applied arts, this place works well for a meal after a museum visit.

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
