I have been to Cafe Merkur many times over the years and have developed a genuine fondness for the place.. I love it for many reasons, some objective and some totally subjective. It is just a fine place for breakfast, lunch or dinner with many of the special features that make a Viennese cafe a Viennese cafe (splendid coffee, good pastry, newspapers to read, the elegant Austrian sense of time and style), but unlike many it is free from any sense of stuffiness, empty formality, pretense. When I am in Vienna one of my first stops is always to the Merkur for a glass of beer and a casual supper.

It's often full of young people and older folks and families, not a tourist joint at all. Truly affordable and just a great place to be. If you find yourself in Josefstadt wander over to the Merkur. You will enjoy it

Having spent a short time in vienna for a break and because it was convenient to our hotel my wife and I decided to have a meal in CAFE MERKUR.
We found the service and food very good and excellent value for money and would recommend this café to anyone wanting a nice meal without breaking the bank.

This cafe is really good value!! I got a breakfast for 4 euros and 20 cents and it was nice!! Plus you got a half price drink to go with your breakfast. There is a smoking and non smoking area. The waitress was a bit moody and slow, but apart from that I will go back.

This cafe was just down the road from where we were staying. It had a lovely atmosphere especially on a rainy day. I had an English Breakfast, which was served in a little frying pan with bread. It was delicious. The coffee was good too. On a second visit we had Spaghetti Bolognaise which was delicious and a decent serving. This cafe felt like a local suburban cafe and well worth a visit if you're in Vienna.

As the first reviewer I want to point out that Cafe Merkur is NOT in Gerasdorf but in Vienna itself!
I spent in this cafe probably half of my life in Vienna. It's a place to drink coffee, beer, eat, meet friends (old or new), chat, relax, read the newspaper, study, kill time, have a blast...basically for everything! If you want to experience the true spirit of a Viennese Kaffeehaus without spending lots of money, visit Cafe Merkur. Try being there for breakfast, the Oriental one is a favourite!
