Just been to this lovely cafe at the back of Alexander Nevsky. The outside is nothing out of the ordinary but inside is very classy. Beautifully designed, quiet,with classical music playing. Just had coffees and delicious cake served warm with a vanilla sauce. Such a sanctuary from the smoking and loud music everywhere in this otherwise glorious city. If you're... More

Had a coffee and some cake here after our visit to the Alexander Nevski cathedral & Saint Sofia church. The venue isclassical and it's a very good place to have a nice sit-down and conversations. Our coffee and cake were good but not excellent. The staff was very friendly. I wouldn't specially recommend this place because it think it's pretty... More

After we arrived we had in this Wiener Cafe a beer, only from the bottle, four varieties, and some pancakes with chicken and vegetables, and my wife had a Bulgarian salad. This was followed by an excellent Wiener melange. Quality and prices were okay. They offer a rich variety of cakes and pies.

We went to Cafe Wien for coffee and cake and were pleasantly surprised. The interior is classic and stylish. The staff were nice and attentive. The coffee great and the cake mouthwatering! Highly recommended!

No matter how it is ranked or considered by most visitors we found it as being a posh place with an unkind and arrogant service. Moreover, one of the waitress told us that wifi did not work despite my cellular clearly received the signal. I only asked to have the wifi password. After having showed there was wifi signal on...

Here I had a genuine experience of a Viennese Nostalgic atmosphere. AMBIENCE: The Wien Café should not be missed if you love classic atmosphere, peace and quiet, and an enjoyable time-out with a pleasant Viennese music at the background. Elegantly decorated, the interior travels you. It is not a touristy restaurant, not a cheap one and the people coming here... More

We loved Cafe Wien and the delicious light lunch we had. The seafood bisque was tasty and very nicely presented and so was Avocado wrap with chicken and cream-cheese. Grolsch, the premium Dutch lager, was a great complement and prices were fairly low too.

Its central situation makes it a great choice for the tourist, it is next to attractions like St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral, Hagia Sofia Church and Sv. Nikolay/the Russian Church (both in same street) and a few minutes away from Roman Rotunda St George and the City centre. The cafe has a menu of sandwiches, salads, pasta, light meals, cakes, ice...
