    It has a historical and vintage style. But coffees are so expensive. We paid €9 only for two coffees!

    Definitely one of the most authentic Viennese cafes. Expect to wait cause it's always crowded...but totally worth it. Amazing apfelstrudel.

    Great no-nonsense service and atmosphere, very genuine. Coffee and strudel is delicious, make sure you bring cash as they don't accept card payments.

    Sit yourself and don't bother asking or else you will get a strange look from the staff. Menu inside on blackboard but in German only.

    Cash only. Only two cakes on offer, both of which were bland. Rude waiting staff. Go elsewhere!

    Instead of waiting long tourist queue in front of café central, just take a seat here and wait for your order

    An authentic busy old café. You have to try their buns (they serve them after 8pm!), Sachertorte and Apfelstrudel.

    Overhyped. Crowded, the cofee is good, but it was too retro for me.

    Hot chocolate they prepared was just water with some chocolate. But they make very tasty strüdels.

    The waitress does not speak english almost at all. She said that all coffees there are decaf. Also she left us waiting for the check. The coffee itself was average.

    A Viennese institution definitely worth a visit for the atmosphere, just not if you're on a budget.

    They bring coffee in dirty glass and cup, and they absolutely wanted for me to pay for it. I should trust other comments. Atmosphere is nice, but staff is awful.

    Old and antique atmosphere. No air-conditioning inside. There is ice-cream in their iced coffee! It was great.

    Slow and not very polite staff. Trivial drinks. Many people. Nothing special. Don't recommend.

    Every review is great, so we were a little disappointed. Coffee ok, service not at it best. The waiter forgot what we ordered, and it was really difficult to get the bill and pay so we could move on.
