I have been here many times but always seem to forget saying something. .. could be I'm too busy enjoying the food and excellent coffees. I've never been disappointed and even trying something new today was no exception. My recommendation is to eat here, and eat here often.

Tried for lunch and enjoyed it. Don't know the history but the place was a far cry from the Vienna evoked by its name. But the service was pleasant and the ambience was good, busy as the place was. Had the granola yoghurt parfait and a cup of soup to start - both good. These were followed by an excellent... More

Man what a great place to eat. Absolutely delicious breakfast. Make sure you get there early because there will be a line. Coffee bar is really cool too!

This place is so cute! It is very very busy and with good reason! The brunch was amazing. You really can't go wrong with the breakfast bowl or the hangover hashbrowns. They were just so delicious. We sat at the bar, had a pitcher of mimosas, and had a wonderful time with great service. I would highly recommend this joint.

This place is close to DT so can get busy at lunch time. They do brunch all day so you have a variety of lunch and breakfast items to choose from. It is a smaller restaurant so you need to plan ahead for a larger group during peak hours. The bathrooms are single person. They have homemade soap and sugar... More

Yes, it is crowded and loud. Food was great. I got the salmon salad. Great flavor. Will go back again.

We were looking forward to trying Cafe Strudel because of the good reviews that I read. We were very disappointed. The place was hard to find. The place was very noisy even though it was not that crowded. They really need some acoustic tiles in their to minimize that overwhelming 'roar' of voices. I wanted soup but they were out... More

Love this place! The breakfast is really good but be prepared to wait. Everyone else in town thinks it's good too. They have a nice coffee bar that you can help yourself to while you are waiting. They have good food at a good price. Also the patio is,fog friendly.

Place is cute and outdoor patio is such a great space. We love the coffee bar that is self serve. We arrived on a Sunday (4 of us) before open, entered our names with the host at 1005 (they open at 10) and were told 15 minutes for patio. We grabbed a coffee to wait and 30 minutes later still...
