Wiener Kaffeehaus is a great place to hang out on a lazy weekend afternoon and chill with a good book or with friends. The atmosphere is cool, spacious and airy, and the service is generally good.
I'm not much of a coffee drinker (decaf wimp, you see) but I appreciated how the mocha came with syrup on the side, so you could make it as sweet as you liked (as opposed to most other places, where mochas are generally served pretty sweet).
The schnitzel was certainly huge, although if you opted for a side serving of salad in hopes of a healthier portion, you'd have been disappointed because the salad is basically a potato and cucumber salad with lots of (albeit tasty) dressing sparingly sandwiched by some fresh greens. The schnitzel itself tasted fine to me, but hey, in my book it's hard to go wrong with a large deep fried slice of meat.
The sachertorte was disappointing. Admittedly, I ordered it to go and ate it several hours later. But it was rather dry and didn't have much of an apricot filling.
In general, I'd definitely come back if I was in the area and sneak into for a while, but don't expect a life-changing food experience.
