By chance we came by this café : back to the 70-ties. This must be a typical local old Wiener café/restaurant located in one of the less touristy side streets of old Vienna, where drinks and food are 50% cheaper, and the food is good...More

The walls are covered in posters from different art and cultural events in Vienna, reminding me of places I'd hang out when in college. There's a non-smoking section in the back with simple marble top tables and one more-than-capable server to manage the whole thing-common...More

A less known but also less busier neighbor of the Figlmueller, where you can have a nice Wienerschnitzel at half of the prize or maybe a very good Gulasch - open also late at night, a very bohemian flair with posters of art exhibitions and...More

The Kaffee Alt Wien is something special. Not to expensive as other bar's in the first district. They have also a really good Wienerschnitzel.

I was getting a bit too nauseous from the throngs of tourists all gathered around the cathedral. Walked into some back alleys and came upon this coffeehouse that was half empty. Anything that didn't include queueing or pushing past crowds was A- OK for me....More

Food was OK. The service was slow and indifferent. We decided to spend our dessert and coffee money elsewhere.

Went there for lunch on my recent trip to Vienna after reading some reviews. It's a nice cafe without being neither pretentious nor expensive. I had the goulash which was very good. The service can be better though. Lovely place where you can also go...More

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
