This place is very traditional and has a great décor!!!! Delicious breakfast (Egg and bacon). It is a bit expensive but it is worth it! I would certainly go again!!! Also the Strudel with whipped cream is very good!

Wanting to go to a traditional Viennese coffee house, my Viennese friend took me to the Café Eiles. It is located on a busy corner at the start of the Josefstädterstrasse, so if you sit near a window or outside there will be plenty of action. Don’t even think however of finding a parking space nearby! The restaurant cleverly placed... More

Have lunch, dinner and coffee there. Good food and excellent coffee. Good wiener schnitzel and sacher torte. Good price and good service but sometimes busy and you have to wait a little.

Popped in on way into city early evening on a whim. Great service, very friendly staff and a great meal all reasonably priced. Can't fault it for anything so gets 5 stars from me. Ask for an English menu if you get stuck!

Visited Cafe Eiles several times on our recent visit to Vienna and really enjoyed the reasonably priced food and drink, comfort, friendliness and traditional Viennese experience provided there. Ideally located just across the road from the Rathaus station, it was also very close to our accommodation, Hotel Graf Stadion, which I'd also highly recommend for travellers on a limited budget....

Further to my visit and review of 13 July, I am very glad to return to this cafe. In July I had been one of the last visitors before it closed for refurbishment, and felt privileged to have been able to sample the slightly old-world atmosphere. I was very curious to see how I would find things, and I must... More

This iscold style place in Vienna where you can get good coffee and sweets typical for Vienna. As it is located behind Rathaus, you will find very reasonabke prices. It is also nice place to drink some wine:)

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighborhood Profile
The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theater, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighborhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicenter. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighborhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
