Fodor's Review

Repair here to find some peace and quiet away from the busy shoppers on Kärntnerstrasse. The original turn-of-the-20th-century interior with its obligatory red-velvet seating and somewhat tired upholstery (if you don't suffer from back problems you'll be fine), is a visual treat. Breakfast Frauenhuber style is a going-for-broke affair, and includes among other variants, a pot of tea (or a pot of coffee), a glass of prosecco, fresh-squeezed orange juice, toast, and fresh salmon with a dash of horseradish. Although billed as Vienna's oldest café (and Mozart's favorite), you'll find fewer tourists here than in other typical cafés, and more of a local feel, which it's had since it opened its doors in 1824.
