A century-old favorite of politicians and theater stars (the Burg is next door), this was Sigmund Freud's favored café. Burt Lancaster, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Paul McCartney are just a few of the famous who have patronized this esteemed establishment, whose glass-and-brass doors have been open since 1873. During Ball Season, you'll spot tired but chatty groups of gowned and tuxedoed Viennese repairing here for breakfast after their night of dancing. If you want a
great meal at almost any time of day, there are few places that can beat this one. An air-conditioned glass veranda has added contemporary flair to this venerable location.
