There is a counter which a huge selection of cakes. The attached shop is also worth a visit. Service was good. About €10 for coffee, cake and tip

Famous place to taste the famous sacher pie, but in the end, its not so wonderful experience. Food and coffes are ok, service in average, and the place is quite small, if you are in a group of 8 people or more, don't try to get in all together. Open only til beginning of evening.

This place gets extremely busy ! I have waited over 40 minutes for the table. Staff were really friendly and tried to seat everyone as quickly as possible. Interior is beautiful! Obviously I have ordered the sachetorte, I was expecting something mind blowing but it was really below average! See it for yourself.

We came here on the recommendation of our tour guide, who claimed that this cafe has the best Sacher torte in Vienna. We respectfully disagree. We found it to be a bit dry and lacking in flavor. Still, if you are in the area and want ot experience an historic cafe, it is worth a stop.

We took another TA's suggestion and made a reservation for Demel, which I highly recommend as well. We were seated at a table where we got to watch them making the strudel pastry and some other goodies. This was going to be lunch as well as dessert so I went with something typically Austrian. I do not know the Austrian... More

We saw Rick Stein's programme "A weekend in Vienna" He highly recommended the Demel. Thanks Rick ,great advice. We arrived during a very busy lunchtime but found two seats by the bar. Our waitress was charm personified. We originally ordered two herring dishes,but she suggested we only order one and augment with individual sandwiches. She also suggested we have our... More

We had a coffee at the counter which was very good and a surprisingly blah apple strudel. So disappointing as it was dry and the apples were a kind of mush. The waitress was so lovely though. Without her rating would be lower. She even found us an extra chair and moved it over and was so pleasant. Chatting with... More

This place has nice interior. But their desserts are not worth to try, absloutly the same as in other patisseries. Besides, overpriced.

We love this place :). We are living with my boyfriend in Vienna and when somebody come to visit us, we definitely take he or she here. Sacher cake with cream (always with cream!!!) and coffee are perfekt! The service is also nice. The only problem is, that Demel closes at 7 pm. last time, we had to choose another... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
