We walked passed and thought it's nice atmosphere so we walked in. Unluckily we were sat on the table near the entrance so it was a bit too busy and cold draft coming in. Overall the food was good but they offer traditional Viennese dishes which you can find in other cafes with cheaper price. Staff were friendly to us... More

The Cafe Mozart is the favorite "Wiener Cafe" in the Vienna city, located in the old town area behind the Opera House next the Albertina Museum, to get there by public transport transport tram numbers 1/71/D or underground U1/U2/U4 "Karlplatzt Station' then a few minutes walk, the Staff are very nice, friendly, the "Sachertorte" was very good.

We were looking for somewhere for a good lunch out of the cold and ended up here-although we had to wait in line for about 20 minutes, everywhere else nearby had lines too. Service was friendly and quick once we were inside. The food was delicious and presented well. Our meals and desserts were all done well. We would certainly... More

We saved this for our last day. The architypal Viennese cafe, where Mozart played and where artists and the like have been going for years to sit behind a cup of coffee and a cake for hours and put the world to rights. The place oozes history. Nice food, especially the cakes. Quite expensive but worth it for a treat.

We had begun to think that they were resting on their laurels, but for a first night meal, it was a convenient place to meet up coming from different directions.. Three of us arrived and were welcomed by a friendly waiter. We sat and chatted for a few minutes and then asked for a drink to await the fourth person.... More

When we visited, the place was full - but still available tables. the service was not really caring but charging over € 3 for a small mocca that is not even great quality is disqualifiing this place for me.

Querfeld, Inhaber at Cafe Mozart, responded to this review

Dear Tomwall33, it is one of the rules in a traditional Viennese Cafe to leave our guests privacy and tranquillity. Service is cautious. Our waiters are not obtrusive or force you to consume. Enjoy "Gemühtlichkeit" and take your time just with a small mocca is what we offer. Sorry we did not meet your expectations. Familien Querfeld & Winkler More

Popped in for breakfast and ordered coffee and croissant for me and tea and bread, ham and cheese for her. Busy, so service was a bit slow, and a Euro 23 bill was a bit on the expensive side. Touristy and central so not altogether unsurprising

Went here for lunch and cake and choose this for the history and atmosphere, and for that it delivered. Our waiter did probably not have a great day since he seemed stressed and not sincere in his service. We had soup and cake and coffee and it was all at a reasonable quality. The prize and the service is pulling... More

On our final night in Vienna we wanted to rest our tired feet & eat somewhere close to our hotel (The Guesthouse). Usually restaurants in touristy areas aren't the best but we were pleasantly surprised by Café Mozart. Our waiter was amazingly attentive, the good tasty (especially the apricot pancakes) & we weren't rushed. Would recommend for a relaxed evening.

A beautiful place located in the heart of Vienna city centre. It has a pleasant feeling of quality when views from the outside and once inside you will not be disappointed. A must do place if you are touring Vienna.

Café seit Mozarts Zeiten
The first coffeehouse was opened at this location in 1794, three years after the death of W.A. Mozart.
The Café Katzmayr located here was a popular meeting point for writers, artists, and actors during the Biedermeier period. In 1882 the old baroque house was torn down, and a Café was opened again in the present building which received the name Café Mozart in 1929. Here is where Graham Green worked on the screenplay of 'The third man' in 1947. A scene of this great classic film takes place in the street serving area of the Café Mozart.
Enjoy the atmosphere of a traditional Viennese café without being bothered by smoke! For the Café Mozart is entirely a non-smoking café. If you wish to smoke you can do so on the terrace of our café or in the bar area of Crossfield’s Australian Pub next door.

Staying in Inner City

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.
