    Demel was the Imperial & Royal Court Confectionary Bakery to the former Austrian royal family. It produces exquisite cakes created by hand. You can check them out behind glass walls in the back. Read more

    Amazing place to take a cup of coffee and something sweet and enjoy exquisite taste of Vienna... You can also buy something for a present. Look, what an awesome bag they give for your purchase!

    Another original purveyor to the Imperial Court (Hofzuckerbäcker). Great coffee and pastries with excellent dining room. Top in the city to rival Sacher. Not to miss.

    Great atmosphere (you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time) and a great breakfast place too! The cakes are delicious and you get to see how they’re made too! The waiters could be nicer though ...

    Excellent place for a slice of cake and pastries and a cup of coffee or tea. All their cakes are yummy. You can even see how the cakes are prepared from the open kitchen. Be prepared to queue.

    Sacher torte definitely worth eating! It's a must during your stay in Vienna. Inside you can also see how sacher, apfelstrudel and other cakes are being made. Friendly staff, sacher costs less than €5

    It is my first time having Einspanner, which should not be stirred, and Sachertorte, which looks like a typical chocolate cake, yet tasty. Amazing and so luxurious interior place. Worth another visit.

    The best example of great marketing. You give a royal flair to your (centrally located) coffee shop to match the vibe of the city, you serve mediocre deserts, and that's it, you've made it.

    If you are willing to deal with the tremendously rude waitress of the first floor you will enjoy a nice slice of sacher cake with coffee or hot chocolate...

    Long queue, apfelstrudel was cold. Same as the heart of the waiter and water in the bathrooms. Interior isn’t anything special. Prices above average. Tasty cream and coffee though.

    Great desserts!!!!! Big selection! The interior design is amazing. You can also see the process of making the desserts through a glass. A company with a history definitely worth of visiting

    Spiegelei mit Schinken and Wiener Fruhstuck. Very good house coffee, awesome cakes (hazelnut or vanilla). Reservations necessary, recommend to go there for breakfast (book second floor, near windows)

    The signature hot chocolate is very good. Not to heavy and not light at all. Also a mind boggling number of pastries and a shop front to take away chocolates.

    no point being in vienna & not stopping in. cakes & strudels are perfection. there's a coffee house in back. but if crowded, take away & enjoy the packaging as well. open everyday through holidays.

    If you want to eat there go directly to the back room. You can seat by yourself except for the first floor. Delicious drinks and cakes, not too expensive considering it's a luxury bakery.

    Very delicious [& strong] cold chocolate! Comes with ice cubes & cream. Vanilla cream cake is good, too. I recommend asking if something contains alcohol before ordering. Free water & pretty interior.

    One of the must have visit places in Vienna. Take a table on a street, walk in, choose a dessert and enjoy. There may be a queue on the entrance, but it's worth to wait.

    Another old-fashioned Viennese coffee house with beautiful interior. Not cheap, but good service and a sizeable Kaiserschmarren which tasted great!

    Nothing much. Tried the apple strudel, schaumrolle, mini sandwiches, fachertorte and senegaltorte but didn't fancy anything. They make each person in a group order something so you can't share here.

    Have a scoop of punch flavored ice cream, it's unreal! And I don't even like punch flavored ice cream! Also, go inside and have a look at the making of Demel sweets!

    Worth waiting in the line. Try apfelstrudel or sacher cake if you are fond of chocolate. Homemade cheesecake is also a good choice 👌

    Well known for chocolate cake (sacher)& hot chocolate but I prefer Apple Strudel. Cake & hot chocolate are a bit too sweet. 10 minutes waiting time, staffs are too busy to be attentive.

    Wait for your table given at the cafe. If you want cakes, need to back the cake shop and ask the one you want, then get the ticket for it and passed it to your service staff at your table.

    Place is design for tourists. You can see the master bakers creating cakes while having coffee. Extremely popular and packed. The Anna Torte is nice but the best is the Violet Sorbet. Full review... Read more

    Always crowded, quality products and historical, authentic. If you want to avoid touristic popular places, stay away from here. Also there's better shops if you are looking for some sweet souvenirs.

    Nice patisserie with a traditional austrian interior design. You can have delicious cakes with a lovely service, but their coffees taste definetly poor.
