Came to Cafe Cenrtal for breakfast. The service was some of the best we got in Vienna, the food and coffee were delicious. Returned to get some chocolates back home. One of the best experiences in Vienna. It is famous and plenty of tourists visit...it, but still has the local charm. Sit inside and admire the beautiful ceiling!More

We visited cafe Central twice, while we were in Vienna. It is nice with good desserts but a little bit crowdy. Great staff!

An elegant place, typical of Viennese sophistication. The coffee is very good and they have a very wide and very tasty breakfast selection. The interior is like a museum. I recommend this wonderful place.

Beautiful atmosphere, delicious coffee and cake plus great service! Quite busy around afternoon but still worth to go.

The cafe is located next to an expensive shopping district, in a relatively quite part of the city. Sitting outside was very pleasent, and the service was excellent. We ordered a croissant, latte, the cafe central special coffee (double espresso with apricot liquer and cream),...the scrambled eggs and the apple strudel. While everything was good, or at least averge, the special coffee and the apple strudel came out exceptional. The only downside i saw was that this place was relatively high priced compared to other similar places in Vienna, with the coffee being at a high price of around 7 euros. Would come back again!More

Such a great place doesn't need any comments. You just feel inside of movie, Sonnenshein. Authentic atmosphere, great service, live piano music... And, as nice bonus: food is tasty and worth the prices. Not too expensive at all. Schnitzel is delicious. Lovely place, will come...back for sure.More

Food had great taste but steak meat wasnt good. I would say, restaurant not worth the price. Place looks great, nice atmosphere.

The place is designed uniquely, worth sitting inside to feel the atmosphere. The plates are not so big, but very tasty
