Fodor's Review

A glitzy procession of stars come for the spectacle, swish service, and soaring elegance at this bustling Viennese-style grand café on Piccadilly. Framed with 1920s black lacquerware in a former Wolseley luxury car showroom, this all-day brasserie begins its long decadent days with breakfasts at 7 am and serves highly adorable Dual Monarchy delights until midnight. Don't be shy to turn up on spec (they welcome walk-ins) to enjoy such Mitteleuropa highlights as Hungarian goulash, Austrian pork belly, chicken soup with dumplings, or breaded Wiener schnitzel. For dessert, go for luscious Kaiserschmarren—caramelized pancakes with stewed fruit and raisins, or Black Forest gâteaux, and don't forget return to savor the Viennoiserie pastries at one of their classy £10.75 to £33.50 afternoon teas.
