I had a great time here. It is an old Viennese style cafe. They don't have menu here but feel free to ask they have to offer today. I would recommend to try Viennese coffee while reading old style newspapers.

The cake is Buchteln desserts. My waiter says they run out but gave us a similar stuff with jammy plum underneath. Very funny. He kept looking at the painting at our back and the name was funny called Fuchs. I thought it looks familiar Then...More

We asked for a menu and were told "It's on the wall." It was, behind an old coat rack full of coats. We ordered apple strudel and was told the special was better - buns with plum sauce inside. Without seeing the price, since it...More
