    A little slice of Vienna in the Southport neighborhood. Grab a table, try one of the signature espresso drinks, and linger for awhile. They also have classically inspired live music on occasion.

    Here they offer a very non-European pumpkin latte, but we recommend the pumpkin chai latte. Spiced with star anise, cardamom and clove, it’s a more fitting tribute to the flavors of autumn. Read more

    Cold and standoffish service from my waitress... Food is Delish! Seems like they have a thing going on for mediocre service. Not my first time there and based on other reviewers, same experience!

    I adore this place. It saddens me that people bring small children here that don't know how to be quiet and behave. It totally kills the experience. There should be an age limit or policy.

    Who cares if Junior threw a fit before he got his kaiserschmarren (caramelized pancake)? You have your baked eggs served atop potato pancakes with Parmesan and truffle oil. All is right with the world Read more
