Apart from some retro travel posters of Austria and a nice dessert case, there's nothing that particularly evokes a Viennese cafe. And, frankly, I was shocked when the server told me that the machine that makes the frothy coffee was broken (no mochas, etc.) and it didn't seem that there was a particular sense of urgency in getting it fixed. Settling for a rather mediocre cup of coffee wasn't what I had in mind.
I'll definitely give them credit for good food, at least the breakfast items we had a lunch. The over easy eggs were perfect and the Pretzel Croissant Sandwich with egg, feta and mushroom was massive and delicious. Cranberry walnut bread, while not typically Austrian, was awesome. The menu had a good selection, particularly if you eat meat. We were far too stuffed to eat dessert there, so we took a nice slice a Sacher Torte for later which was good, but not amazing by any means. Props to them for having more than just this and strudel, like the Esterhazy.
There were two servers who helped us out - one male (beard, nose ring), one female (dark curly hair) - both were fantastic.
Definitely recommend for a breakfast / brunch or just dessert, so long as the owner(s) get the coffee machine fixed or replaced. Seriously, not acceptable in a place touting Vienna in the name.
