For the area, this is one of the best places to eat quickly and for little money.
The coffee's not that great, the staff is indeed over-worked.
But considering the neighborhood, the price and quality of the food, and the lovely, busy atmosphere, I recommend it highly. GREAT place for a business meeting.

This cafe has an authentic atmosphere and it's a good place for people-watching. The breakfast was basic but quite good and there are a lot of different options; eggs, yoghurt, müsli etc. Good coffe and good service.

One each evening that we stayed in Vienna we at in one of the many well known Viennese coffeehouses, our choice being guided by Trip Advisor and the fact that life piano music was also on offer in addition to the food. To be honest we were alsmost put off by a comment in the guidebook that said: "Has looked shabby for as long as anyone can remember!". Certainly it does not have the opulent atmosphere of the other coffeehouses that we visited, but what it does have is the best food that we experienced during our visit at the lowest price. So if you are looking for good value for money rather than opulence, this is the place for you.

We arrived in Vienna after a very long trip, starving, and were directed to Cafe Pruckel by some people we asked in the street. Took us a while to find a table, but we loved the shabby chic of the place and the obvious tradition it had.
We sat outside with our 2 kids (one of which is quite young, I'm afraid), and realized quickly kids aren't particularly welcome there as we got quite a few side glances from posh people reading their newspapers. (I also got the feeling tourists weren't popular, and I get that to an extent, though it was a bit surprising after our days in very welcoming Berlin).
Anyway, the waiter came over, I asked for an English menu, he rolled his eyes but brought it. Alas, the English menus didn't have the daily menu options, so I went back to the German ones trying to use my rudimentary German to order. Since I didn't understand everything, I asked about one of the options and the waiter proceeded to cross them all out, saying they were out of everything, and then threw the menu in the trash!
We were too tired to be offended, so we just ordered Schnitzels, sandwiches and soups - which were fine, and not terribly expensive in Vienna terms - ate them as quickly as possible and left.
The place is lovely, though, and all the cakes looked amazing. Just don't go there with children, and don't bother them with English menu. :)
