We visited Cafe Stein as we went from Voltivkirche to the Sigmind Freud museum and very much enjoyed our coffee and cake. We ordered a Weiner Melange, an Eis Caffe and a piece of strudel to share. The service was good, the coffee well made and tasted good and the strudel was absolutely delicious. It was busy but we found... More

We've been here two nights in a row and the food was consistently good, as was the service. Nice outdoor seating and casual atmosphere, and reasonably priced. Great if you want an easy meal - salads, burgers, schnitzel.

We ate here on our recent visit to Wien. We were able to get a table outside, and away from the smokers, something that is often difficult in the city! However, the staff were not happy with us for some reason, and generally ignored us during our visit. We ordered traditional fare, and they were fine but nothing special. We... More

Without exaggeration, Cafe Stein played a big part in my social life in the 1990s and early 2000s: it was close to first my university, then my workplace and all my friends hung out there as well. Despite the dense smoke in the first floor and hit-and-miss quality of service, we loved it. I would always eat their legendary salad... More

I had been two times in the last months at this place and it looks like the kitchen and the number of employees are short for the size of the guests the can get during the day. The dishes I had are tasty and the service itself is super friendly, just that fact about the answer to the demand has... More

I'll start with the good part... I came with three friends and Cafe Stein was the only place in the vicinity that was open. It was Sunday when pretty much everything is closed. We wanted to have a breakfast / brunch so we were in luck, or so we thought. We sat outside and waited for about 5 min, the... More

Stopped in for breakfast and enjoyed our meals. Also have an English menu. Coffee was ok, nothing to rave about. Cute little place!

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
