Café Jelinek
Coffee, anyone?

Guglhupf and a Kleiner Brauner
A Viennese Bundt cake
Tante Jolesch could not have made it any better

In my book, Café Jelinek is on the top list
of places not to miss in Vienna.
Charming interior, great coffee,
a small, but fine selection of typical Kaffeehaus pastries,
and, on my visit, the friendliest waitress imaginable
(yes, Merisi is still on her quest to find the ubiquitous
grumpy waiter or waitress. No such luck so far, after
more than seven years of trying hard to find him or her)

Café Jelinek
Open every day of the week
from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM
Otto-Bauer-Gasse 5
6th District

R e p o s t


  1. I had a cup of coffee last night. That's almost unheard of for me

  2. Looks like a delightful place to have coffee and begin a new day!! Have a great new week, Merisi!

  3. Yes to all the above, what a gem of a cafe!

  4. My kind of place! Espresso is the drink of choice in the rainy Pacific Northwest

  5. I'm pinning this for my future trip to Vienna! No, I don't have one planned, but it is on my list of places to go!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
