Café Tomaselli Review

This inn opened its doors in 1705 as an example of that new-fangled thing, a "Wiener Kaffeehaus" (Vienna coffeehouse). It was an immediate hit. Enjoying its 11 types of coffee was none other than Mozart's beloved, Constanze, who often dropped in, as her house was just next door. The Tomasellis set up shop here in 1850, becoming noted "chocolatmachers." Feast on the famous "Tomaselliums Café" (mocha, Mozart liqueur, and whipped cream) and the large selection of excellent homemade cakes, tarts, and strudels. Inside, the decor is marble, wood, and walls of 18th-century portraits. In summer the best seats are on the terrace and at the pretty "Tomaselli-Kiosk" on the square.

    Café Tomaselli Review

    Café Tomaselli was a traditional Austrian cafe and they try hard to keep it that way, but unfortunately they have not kept up with the competition of Salzburg. Their coffee is very (enough to say very very) expensive. Austrians always give you a small class of tap water with your coffee, but at Tomaselli if they notice you are an inexperienced foreigner the service tries to get away with skipping it. Their cakes are good, but once again in comparison to the other cafes they offer small portions. Quality coffee and cake can be found at Café Fingerlos and Café Demel. Best atmosphere is Café Bazar directly on the river. Tomaselli is second best in atmosphere, but they have the poorest coffee.

    Beautiful cakes and pastries

    Deserts are served separately from beverages and savory dishes. Just gawking at the beautiful tray of desserts is part of the experience. Then, order a coffee from the other server.
