Awesome, in a frumpy, old-fashioned way. Great place to bring your parents (in law) probably.
I agree that the food is hit or miss but it is a typical and charming Viennese cafe.
Since they raised the prices it´s super-pricey. Bye-bye Sperl, it was fun, no it is over.
I've been coming here for nearly 20 years and very little has changed, which is comforting in a way. Service is fine, can be a bit typically Viennese in the evening. Food is hit or miss, but the coffee and ambience cannot be beat.
Can't beat this spot for old world ambience but, the service, is questionable!
Granted it was New Years Eve and they were closing at 2:PM. I wanted to see this place since Johann Strauss is reputed to have been a customer. We walked it at 1:20PM with plenty of time we thought, to grab a bite! they totally ignored us till 1:50 then finally came over to ask if we wanted coffee or cake. That left us a grand total of 10 minutes to accomplish this - NOT. My son wrote in his blog that "He hoped Strauss got better service than we did"! Just be careful and be prepared to WAIT till they get around to "waiting on you".
Some of the most famous coffee in Vienna and certainly one of the most well-known coffee houses. The service has always been good for me, their coffee is nice and smooth and sitting in the Sperl always gives you the feeling you're in old-time Wien enjoying a cheap cup of joe.
Prices are quite ok for Vienna, though, there certainly are cheaper options, but why miss-out on the history and atmosphere of the Sperl just to save a few Euro-cents?
