Common items, maybe the wine cave could be a surprise. A little bit arrogant and tired staff (11am time of my visit) with no input to sell. Common cakes, poor to average coffee. Excellent position.

Been there with my friend. I tried porridge - very good, goose liver - impeccable, pancakes which in reality - French ones (big & think) - nothing outstanding, croissant wasn't just baked, average coffee.

The coffee is obviously excellent, but the cakes were much too sweet for my taste. The prices are very high because they also have a souvenir shop full of tourists. Tip: you can get the same merchandise in any other supermarket or minimarket, but cheaper. Also, it looks very modern so it lacks that viennese cafe charm.

The worst cafè I've ever visited. Very unkind and un-polite people. SACHER Torte sold out at 16 p.m. only a few awful cakes

Looking for breakfast and found this interesting restaurant and amazing deli. A large breakfast was 9.50 euro......smaller ones are available....was very good...as was the service. Get a table by the window and watch Vienna walk by.

I want to try something from this store and the cheapest thing I managed to find was Topfeb Knodel (photo above). It was tasty. However, please do not go there for shopping just to carry a Julius Meinl bag. It is way expensive.

We went for my father's birthday dinner - 7 of us on a Friday night. Not very busy so got great service. They had places us at a strange table which made it difficult for them to serve us food but we did get a window view. It was the evening of the demonstrations so one reason for it being... More

We were going to have a cake and coffee after shopping at their grocery but the seats were full so we were standing somewhere with some people because one of them said it was line for table. But then we saw people just started jumping in for table as some were leaving. I asked one of the waiters if there's... More

the shop is a must see. Compare it with Harrod's food court or Lafayette Gourmet. What a choice of deliciuous foods and drinks

This is a grocery store, not a restaurant, although they do have a small prepared food counter to take-out. Nothing peculiar about this store really… We live close to Montreal, and you can find one a dozen stores like this one, but better. True, the cheese department was great. Compared to any regular store in France, this one really has... More

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.
