“Best coffee ice cream in Vienna”
Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

A small, crowded, salon near the Graben in the center of Vienna, it serves two kinds of coffee ice cream, one regular and one premium for a surcharge. Both are excellent, for my taste the best in Vienna. Why? The flavors are richer and deeper, with little of the sweetness evident initially, while the texture is notably fresh and creamy. Many salons touted as the best in Vienna have excellent creamy freshness, but disappoint with a surge of sugar as the main flavor and only a pale taste of the nominal flavor, especially for coffee. (Of course if you prefer that style Zanoni and Zanoni nearby is just fine). Other flavors at Tuschlauben are good, but I am a coffee ice cream fan when I find the real thing, and this is it. BTW, the premium coffee is softer at first bite, then develops more at the end. I order both, depending on my mood.

“A Classic”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

There's at least three dozen great ice cream parlors all over Vienna. This one is my personal #2 favorite, which means it's absolutely excellent. Try the "nocciolone" flavour...

“Best Eis in Vienna”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Don't be lured into the larger eissalons near Schwedenplatz. Make a beeline for this spot the locals visit when the temperature heats up. You will find the standard flavors - chocolate, vanilla, blueberry, lemon - and more unusual, seasonal flavors - walnut, sour cherry and cranberry. I usually order the chocoate as I think it is the best in all of Vienna.

“Vienna at its Best - Stylish & Charming Eis Salon in inner Vienna”
Reviewed June 30, 2011

This Gem of Vienna society is located not far from the Graben and Kohl markt in the inner city and whilst being smaller than may Eis Salons around Vienna has the reputation for delivering some of the cities best flavours.
You can sit outside or at the small number of tables inside, they serve excellent coffee and of course you should bring your partner its the kind of place frequented by many living in the Austrian capital. This place is busy on warm nights so getting a seat may be difficult during the summer holidays. I am addicted to the "Cookies" flavour and the "Amarena" it is always "Fab" so based on the most recent visit it should please the most critical of critics.
