Close to the Festspiel Haus and at the entrance of th Neutor it is a very typical Austrian Viennese Cafe. The interieur is as you can expect it pastry selection is big and of high quality. During summer you can sit outside on the patio maybe while waiting to get som tickets for the Festivals from the official ticket office... More

we found this cafe after walking through the city and just decided to go inside for a coffee. We were in for a surprise, even though there were not many choices left on what concerned to cakes we still had a nice meal as you can see in the pics. The cafe itself is really beautiful. The only downside was... More

Maybe, many-many years ago, let's say at the end of 18th and early 19th century it was fashionable place for madams and their companions to have a cup of coffee and to gossip about the latest news. That was the picture in my mind while we were waiting for coffee and cakes. But, the first gulp of my coffee had... More

On a recent day trip to Salzburg, my wife, son and I popped into this on-the-surface inviting cafe in search of lunch. Alarm bells rang because we were the only people inside, and with hindsight we should have made a discrete exit there and then. Bizarrely (it was 12 noon and lunch time), few of the items listed in the... More

Café Niemetz used to be a grat place to grab a nice cup of coffee downtown. The garden out back is still very nice to sit in and the decor is still...let's say frilly and pink. It still has the touch of an old-timey coffee house but, oh my, the service has plummeted drastically! Waitresses look grimy and unkempt, wearing... More

Very attentive service, tasty traditional Austrian cakes and one justifiedly legendary Kardinalschnitt. Only good memories with this place and the events around my visits there.

Nice and comfortable place, however not very polite service. In addition wrong bill with higher price ( wrong coffe and water included but not part of my order). Choose another one if you can.

The place is rather oldfashioned style, but they serve very decent cafe and good cakes in the centre of Salzburg. Perfect service, the interior is not my style, at all.

Stopped in here on our way back to our accommodation and had a pretty mediocre experience. First lady who served us was pretty impatient and gruff (maybe b/c a huge tour group entered right behind us) but the other two ladies were nice. As for the desserts -- average, at best. Banana chocolate cake was nice-ish, a bit sweet, but... More
