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

    Authentic cafe with great selection of coffee drinks and breakfast food. Austrian artists used to visit it quite often.

    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.

    Pleasant Viennese cafe. Not all cakes were available when I visited, and service was a little slow. Coffee was good.

    The place to go after a stroll in the weekend market. Typical Viennese cafe with live music in the afternoon. This being Vienna, pastries & desserts are delicious!

    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.

    Viennese Classic. Apfelstrudel is the best ( be aware, it's cold but awesome). Outstanding coffee. No Russians.

    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.

    The place is cosy,the food&drinks-great. However, watch out for EXTREMELY rude waitresses who can ruin your great experience with their attitude. It's amazing such people are allowed to serve others!

    One of the nicest coffee houses in Vienna. Good coffee, cakes and free Wifi but also a bit of history, it is rumoured that Adolf Hitler hanged around here when he was a struggling artist.

    Try the Sperlschnitte - not too cheap but excellent
