    We didn't even get to eat/drink there, because the waiter was so rude. He topped everything off with saying they were out of sachers (e. t. the whole café was ordering them), so we decided to leave.

    Come for the staff's attitude - the cake is really nothing special.

    Waiters are so unfriendly. Highly NOT recommended. You can have your coffee any other beautiful Vienna coffee shops.

    Arogant waiter. No menu. Good sacher.

    The personel could be nicer, coffee better, but the cake was good and the atmosphere in there was nice.

    They maybe one of the famous cafe in Vienna but it shouldn't mean that they can have a right to be so unfriendly. If you had enough sales for a while, close your store. And they had no specialties 👎

    Do not ask for the menu, it is on the wall, written by chalk on a small blackboard. Rude and unfriendly staff. Buchteln mit Powidl for 10 €. Not worth the price thanks to outdated interior and waiters
