I had a quick lunch at Cafe de L'Europe shortly before having to leave to catch a train. The service was excellent and the food quite good. It's a great location, right in the middle of the main shopping area, and though they clearly cater to tourists, I found the waiter friendly and helpful!

Well we choose this Cafe near our hotel for breakfast (as our hotel was charging 30/40 euro per person for breakfast!) and we were very pleased of the outcome! Coffe was excellent and all our other breakfast choices (my Strudel was to die for!) and....tomorrow will go back to try something else. We "saved" 50 euro...not bad!!!

A typical coffee shop for tourists, in great location tough, good service and an acceptable quality. Reasonable prices also. Outdoors seating is all that counts.

This street cafe serves real quality drinks and food. The bar and restaurant on the sixth floor is fantastic, the views of the cathedral are amazing.

In a good location on the Graben just off the main square, very good value and good for coffee, cakes and substantial snacks. All snacks/meals are clearly exhibited in the menu (extensive), when they arrive at the table they 'math the pictures'. Very convenient and highly recommended.

If you can get a table, especially on a sunny Saturday morning, there's no better sidewalk cafe for breakfast and a couple of Viennese coffees than this place, located on The Graben near the cathedral of St. Stephen. This seems to be "the" place to meet on the weekends for Viennese and tourists alike. Reasonable prices, outdoor table waiter service... More

After walking for almost two hours around Vienna with my guide, I decided to have lunch near St. Stephens Cathedral. So, I came across Cafe de l'Europe. Quite crowded but I managed to get a table for two. I ordered the Fillet Steak 250gr. It took quite a while to be prepared as the restaurant was quite full. But it... More

Go upstairs and get a seat by the window. The food and service is excellent and good value. The pasta dishes and the club. Sandwiches are a nice lunch. It is a smoke free restaurant upstairs. Downstairs is all smoking so you need to rush past and go upstairs. Then sit and enjoy

This cafe was a great place to stop and have lunch. They have a covered outdoor seating area with heaters so even on a chilly March day we were warm. The food was very nice and not overly expensive given the location. If you do visit here, the ice cream is a must have. We had a Nutella spaghetti ice... More

if you go upstairs for dinner you can have a nice table next to the window just in front of the main square, nice view. The food is ok, we had a traditional Wiener-schnitzel and the goulash + a bottle of Chianti not expensive. Reasonable price and nice service, really polite. WE had a really late dinner!

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
