Excellent coffees, cakes, cream things. The waiters are smart and formally dressed which adds to the atmosphere. They are friendly and multilingual. It is a warm place on a cold morning. Not the cheapest but prices are reasonable for the good food and service

Café Museum has been a location frequented by many geniuses of the 20th century. Since its inauguration in 1899 it has been a meeting point for painters, writers, composers and architects. Mid 2010 Café Museum was taken over by Berndt and Irmgard Querfeld. The importance of a high level comfort is something the Querfeld family have always been very aware of and therefore they have decided to restore the original Zotti design back to its original glory.
