Description: The epitome of a Viennese coffee house In 1873 Franz Landtmann opened “Vienna’s most elegant cafe location“. Even today, the Landtmann ist the epitome of Viennese coffee house culture and one of the last grand cafes along Vienna’s Ringstraße. Come and enjoy the wonderful world of Viennese hospitality and tradition, as have numerous prominent guest over the decades, from Sigmund Freud to Gustav Mahler or Hillary Clinton.

“Very smart tea shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

Well worth a visit just for the experience. Range of cakes and pastries was excellent with coffee to match. The waiters were very fond of pointing their noses skywards and the toilets could do with an overhaul. Other than that this is a lovely place to visit.

“Just skip it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

So just a note for all tourists coming to visit Vienna. This cafe/restaurant is probably in almost every travel book as one of the "old style" Viennese cafes that you should visit. Don't bother. It is conveniently located in the first district but:
1. It is a stuffy/snobby place
2. The wait staff are a bit rude. Sometimes they are fine, but at their best they are snooty and indifferent.
3. It is overpriced (you can get food and coffee just as good at any number of other cafes and restaurants throughout Vienna for about 20% less).

“Rude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

The waitress was impolite and rude. The service was slow and bad. I asked for some help in an organic tea From Africa I would like to order from the menu, and he said me: "I can.t halo you. It is just a tea. Order one that you know!!! "

“Great location, good food”

Traditional Viennese cafe. Exceptionally located across from Rathauspark and next to Burgtheatre- My wife and I sat in the outside terrace. Food was brought quickly. Very good quality and affordable (for Vienna standards)
