I loved my coffee, croissant & scrambled eggs with ham. I thought this was a lovely cafe and will definitely return. The restaurant was well staffed and clean. I do recommend going here.

a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the center. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with
