    Here they offer a very non-European pumpkin latte, but we recommend the pumpkin chai latte. Spiced with star anise, cardamom and clove, it’s a more fitting tribute to the flavors of autumn. Read more

    Who cares if Junior threw a fit before he got his kaiserschmarren (caramelized pancake)? You have your baked eggs served atop potato pancakes with Parmesan and truffle oil. All is right with the world Read more

    A little slice of Vienna in the Southport neighborhood. Grab a table, try one of the signature espresso drinks, and linger for awhile. They also have classically inspired live music on occasion.

    This is a great place to meet for coffee or tea with a huge selection. The food is also really good quality!

    The best DAMN coffee in the world.The only place you can find it outside of chicago is Vienna.Recommend coffee with a dessert or any of their Breakfast-lunch-dinner menu.Service sucks but worth it.

    Since this Austrian coffeehouse is an expert in coffee and tea, it’s no surprise it makes great hot chocolate, too, using imported cocoa and steamed milk. Read more

    Their pastries are awesome! Try the Mozart Torte or the Vienna Eiskaffee they're both worth the calories!

    I adore this place. It saddens me that people bring small children here that don't know how to be quiet and behave. It totally kills the experience. There should be an age limit or policy.

    If you are coming to meet someone just tell them table for one, the girls are super bitchy about sitting at a table even if youre ready to order

    Cold and standoffish service from my waitress... Food is Delish! Seems like they have a thing going on for mediocre service. Not my first time there and based on other reviewers, same experience!

    Thoroughly European, right down to the great food and painfully slow service.
