Fodor's Review

Serving up delicious house-made desserts, Vienna Café is a Shanghai institution. This place is definitely not trendy, nor is it trying to be anything other than an Austrian coffeehouse. With a wood-paneled main dining room and a tiny solarium, this is perfect setting for a hearty lunch, weekend breakfast, or an afternoon coffee break. Indulge yourself with the Sachertorte, and never mind the effects on your waistline. Prices are higher than they would be in Europe, but Vienna Café's ambience is a rarity in the alleged Paris of the East.

Vienna Café Review

We went in search of the "excellent breakfasts" but it being in the PM - a dim idea. The cakes we tried - impossible to decipher what they were, since they were new/special/off the menu - one was reasonable (banana soufflé?) and, the other, had a rather head-scratching flavor combination of rich/nutty and tart (fortunately liked by my companion). The clientèle of the day were: couples, business people, and the obligatory solo ex-pat male glancing

up at every girl passing by.
