When he stayed at the adjacent Hotel Sacher, Graham Greene loved having his coffee here while working on the script for The Third Man. (Greene included the café in the film, and Anton Karas wrote a waltz for the place.) The café, named after the monument to Mozart (now in the Burggarten) that once stood outside, is overrun with sightseers, but the waiters are charming and manage to remain calm even when customers run them ragged. Crystal chandeliers, a brass-and-oak
interior, comfortable seating, and delicious food—the excellent Tafelspitz here has to be mentioned—add to its popularity. With the Opera just behind the café, this is a fine place for an after-performance snack; be on the lookout for opera divas here for the same reason.
