Stumbled across Demel whilst walking in Vienna, great astmosphere, wonderful vienna scnitzel and yummy chocolate souffle. Great gift shop, incredible chocolates and truffles, they make fantastic souvenirs to take home. Wonderful memories

“A must do in Vienna!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

A visit to this famous coffee house is a must when visiting Vienna but you do need patience because queuing for a table seems to be normal, we waited about half an hour even though there were tables waiting to be cleared. Perhaps such a renowned coffee house does not need to hurry. The array of cakes and pastries was impressive but we chose the traditional Sachertorte only to be just a little disappointed. It looked wonderful but the flavour did not quite match up to the appearance. Despite that, the coffee was excellent although the surroundings just felt a little 'crowded'. Non-smokers be aware, the ground floor seating area is for smokers.

“Chocolate and more”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

A very busy place, but we were fortunate to find two seats for coffee and pastry. All was excellent. And then there is the shopping of more treats to take out!

“OMG! Best coffee and cake!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We were in Vienna for only a day on a European bus tour and our guide recommended Demel Cafe. It was perfectly located near the entrance to the Hofburg Palace gates where the Spanish Riding School is...so it was a great location for having a break! We were lucky enough to get a table out the front and watch the people go by. But don't miss out on going inside to see them at work in a glassed off section at the back of the ground floor. I had the best vanilla slice (probably not what they called it, but what I called it) and it was absolutely delicious!

“Very nice”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

It didn' t feel like 21st century cafe and that was very nice. Cakes chocolates and all were realy amazing for someone who love sweets. Great was the view to their kitchen to see how they were baking. Truth is that they don' t realy want you to sit there for a long time there is even a line to wait in for tables and their wifi is limited as well.
