“Nice cafe with good vibes”

Came across the name of this bar in a Monocle guide, and usually I'd take their suggestions with a pinch of salt as they don't always recommend the best or cheapest in any city. But I was pleasantly surprised that this unpretentious cafe is inexpensive, comfortable, hip and modern at the same time. Probably for that reason the cafe was almost full outside and had really good vibes with Viennese folk enjoying their slow Monday coffee. Of course, I should say something about the cappuccino, which is among the best I've had in a cafe in any city in the world. There are seats by the road where you can enjoy some people watching, but if you happen to find a space indoors it's also good for that too. Service with a smile. Perhaps my only regret is that I didn't get any cake, which I heard was good and also priced very reasonably. Then again I'm sure I'd find myself back in Vienna some day soon, and Balthasar is definitely a place that I'd visit again.

I did not know this café existed until a friend who lives nearby took me there after work today - revelation! As a lover of flat whites (unfortunately harder to find in Austria as a unicorn) I was more than pleasantly surprised. Just as good and artfully decorated than I remember my favourite coffee beverage from first encountering in Australia. Well done - will be back soon!

Their cappuccinos and pastries are great! Staff is lovely. Cash only but there is a bank machine nearby so no real issue e there.

Excellent place for a quick stop - top quality coffee & lovely pastries, filled rolls and mini cakes. Just be aware that it's cash only here. Thoroughly recommend a visit.
