On a chilly day, we pushed through thick curtains into the interior of Café Tomaselli, the most famous coffee house in Salzburg. According to the blurb, Wolfgang probably enjoyed his ‘Almond Milk’ here. Maybe! The place was buzzing with lunchtime diners, served by smartly attired waiters. The men for coffee and menu fair, the women bringing to our table an... More

I'd heard bad things about the service but the waiter who served us was friendly, (looks a bit like George Clooney!) so we had no problems there. It wasn't the quickest service but we were not in a rush. The Mozart's almond milk is lovely and the ham and cheese omelette was too and kept me going for ages. Bewildering... More

The place is great. A Salzburg landmark and must do. Try to secure a place at the outside gazebo/open area. It combines the great variety of food and drinks plus an extra charming atmosphere while enjoying the passersby and hustle and bustle of the pedestrian area. A great place.

The historic building and staff are worth the extra it costs to enjoy a latte on the balcony in Salzburg Zentrum. The gluten free cheesecake is a lasting memory for me.

The Cafe Tomaselli was part of my live. When we were pupils we met there, going ahead as students, then with our families, young meets old and Salzburg meets tourists. It has never changed since I remember. Pastry is of excellent quality and so is coffe. You will be served classical breakfast and a huge variety of coffies. If you... More

I went to Cafe Tomaselli to have an ice cream for dessert and it was good, not the best ice cream I had try but it was ok, and the best thing about this cafe I think is the view if you sit outside

Cons The Omelette had way too much gam it in and a lack of flavour. The cakes we bought were not really as expected and no... More

We visited for breakfast and, because the cakes looked so good, we stayed a bit longer.....the cakes are sold by a separate server and you have to pay her directly for what you buy. The coffee was good too. They have newspapers (mostly Austrian from what I could see) hanging up for reading. This is a good place to relax... More
