    The kleiner Brauner (coffee with cream) and a slice of Topfenstrudel (a kind of cheesecake) were very good. Authentic atmosphere, lovely mix of tourists and locals.

    Sachertorte was okay. Don’t get the mulled wine... premade in a teabag.

    This is one of the most special and remarkable places to ever exist. Its old air makes it so mesmerizing, and if you are a cinephile then you'll be even more enchanted by it. Excellent coffee also.

    This is the location used in the film "Before Sunrise" (1995) with Ethan Hawke and Julie Deply.You can sit to the exact same booth where Jesse and Celine have their "telephone game". (see photo)

    Very old (since 1880) and authentic Viennese coffee was supposedly one of Adolf Hitler's favorite cafes when he was a student in Vienna prior to WW I

    One of the typical authentic Viennese coffeehouses. They've some specials as dishes, worth to check menu for them.

    Classic Viennese café. Don't believe the waiter if he tells you there's no more Sacher Torte left and tell him to check with the kitchen.

    Historic café, beautiful and cozy. The apfelstrudel was the best I've ever had. The other sweets I tasted were just ok.

    Pastry aren't good and the prices are high. It's better to go there in the morning otherwise you get ignored by the staff

    travel back in time and gaze out of Cafè Sperl's huge windows while listening to the pianist playing the classics and drinking Melange

    Great traditional coffee - Classic Viennese cafe, recommend by a local friend of mine. Did not disappoint and had an English description of each coffee which was great.

    House desert (forgot the name) is nice, but not great. Overall cafe Centrale is better in every way if you are looking for some authentic Wien cafe.

    The waiter gave us 10 seconds to order and then walked off. The Pariser Schnitzel was good though. The coffee not so much.

    We sat in a cosy window booth, drank beer & are risotto and Italian toast (pesto, mozarella and tomato on toast) - both were very lovely. Atmosphere is laidback, warm and quiet. Great people-watching.

    very touristic cafe, workers are extremely spoiled- no idea about service. limited menu selection, over-priced just due to old / authentic atmosphere... would not recommend anybody...

    It took some 90 minutes to have my sandwich, simply because they forgot about the order. Very original, nice and tasty place with slow service.

    A go-to spot for the city’s literati, Café Sperl has intimate, velvet-lined booths and is the ideal place to linger over the newspaper and a piece of Sacher torte.

    Nice, old classic décor. Melange was ok. Waitress made me pay right away. A bit rude but that could just be service in all of Vienna.
