The Cafe Riter is nicely located in Mariahilferstrasse. We had some coffee (which was quite good), but we found that we only had two pieces of cake to choose from. We chose the Sachertorte, but it was a bit dry. What surprised us was the...More

Look beyond the somewhat stuffy waiters to the real character of this place. Beautiful paintings, delicious desserts and coffee, traditional furniture and equipment (including an old-fashioned cigarette machine!). Retired crowd still reading daily newspapers on bamboo/wooden holders. No WiFi, but maybe better you chill for...More

Unfortunately, I have to agree with a recent review that the waiter was rude and threw coffee on the table. We were waiting ages to pay, therefore, I went to the cashier to pay. He was sitting, playing with his cell phone and said to...More

Famous for its coffee houses, Vienna has several great examples of which this is one. Super menu, excellent service and good quality food are on offer here.

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
