A Viennese friend took me here for brunch on a beautiful sunny day when we were able to sit out on their spacious street-side patio and it was just what I was looking for. I had ham and eggs with toast, nothing remarkable but kind...More

What an amazing cafe. The ambience, the service and the food were great. I got one of the breakfast platters and a few cakes. All amazing. Definitely worth a visit

We went to Cafe Jelinek for breakfast as it was recommended by many, and we were not disappointed. The selection is rather simple, but the portions are nice. We chose three different options to compare and all of them were very tasty. Coffees were good...More

The heart of the cafe is the locals that share this unpretentious space. Time stands still with the tattered wallpaper, a smoke stained ceiling (from a time when smoking was a must) and the quirky furniture - and you wouldn’t want it any other way....More

I love going to places were you'll find more locals than tourists -- this is just such a place! Cafe Jelinek was a nice place to start the day for breakfast. The pace is slow and leisurely, so not a place to go if you...More

Great local cafe for a classic Viennese breakfast. Good quality food and big serves. Excellent service from the staff. In a quiet street with shade, so you can sit outside comfortably, and it inside is a a lovely look into the past with vintage furniture...More

We called here for breakfast following TA recommendations and really enjoyed it. Very quirky inside - so much so that I’d advise eating inside even if it’s glorious weather outside! We shared the breakfast for two which was good but for 18 euros I expected...More

We were out wandering the back streets looking for a shop that we wanted to visit and came across this little cafe. We sat outside and ordered the traditional Vieneese breakfast for 2 and 2 of grandma's hot chocolates with cream. I have to say...More

This. This is what I'm talking about. Their chocolate nut cake can give the Sacher Torte a run for it's money any day of the week. A lovely shabby chic old school Viennese cafe that hasn't been too updated, gives you a cozy feel of...More

This place was perfect for an afternoon coffee with my partner. We would have loved to sit in the front room but instead we got to explore the back room. The whole place is quite lively. Coffee is awesome. I had the Häferl Kaffee with...More

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
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

I don't remember a full menu while I was there. I just searched for a website and they have one. There appears to be a menu, but it's not in English. Many Austrians, especially the younger generation, speak at least a little... More
