Food and drink
As in most coffeehouses, food is served throughout the day, usually without interruption, from morning till night. Typical Viennese and traditional cuisine is the norm here. Mid-day lunch specials change frequently and delicious pastries can be selected from the glass tray near the door.
This corner café with its high ceiling and L-shaped interior is one of the most comfortable of its kind in town. Coming here is the perfect antidote to stress. Pick up one of the 30 different periodicals, newspapers or magazines, have a game of billiards or just day-dream – no one will bother you. Stay as long as you like. On Sundays, operetta shows are given.
A couple of the most competent waitresses look after you here and never yet have I had reason to complain!
Gumpendorferstrasse 11 is a stone's throw from the city centre, a short walk to Naschmarkt and the nearby Theater an der Wien. This house is tucked away in a corner of the city you wouldn't automatically walk past.
It costs between 7 and 14 euros for main courses, and coffee and cake will set you back about 8 euros.
