Feels like we are back in Germany or Austria at a typical European Cafe. As in Europe, relaxed atmosphere, Excellent coffee and cappuccino, and fresh ingredients. We appreciate the ample portions , moderately priced. Surprised at the number of gluten-free selections. Lovely spot !

The service was abysmal. I had a reservation @ 10 am for brunch and no one greeted me when I came in. Once our omelette (my husband & I) were served, our toast took a 10 minutes to arrived. Our server didn’t refill any of our water. I will NOT come back nor recommend this place to anyone.

not enough room. uncomfortable seating and small tables. should have gotten sausage with buffet (only genoa salami). did not know they had bacon with omelette.

I would go back for the vienna chocolate cake and anything you can only get in vienna.

Good place to grab something to eat or meet friends for cup of coffee. Only problem is business hours. I didn't check and they open till 3 P.M. on Sunday.

My family was disappointed. The restaurant note on Open Table specifically stated for Christmas Eve the restaurant was offering the European Buffet until 4pm. I made a reservation for 2pm. We arrived prior to the reservation and were seated immediately, there was a single other diner in the place. The server was initially polite and took our beverage orders but was then on her phone. After a while I got her attention and asked her if we could have the buffet to which she told us they stopped serving the buffet at 1:30pm and indicated they were closing at 2pm. I was incredulous considering the reservation is for 2pm so how could that be? She then corrected herself and said they were closing at 4pm. I mentioned the Open Table site stating the buffet would be through 4pm - she did apologize for the confusion and said she was unaware of what was posted there but the staff was told by the owner they were closing early. Very frustrating as we specifically chose this spot to try the buffet. We paid for our beverages and left.

Excellent food. It would be better if they have more regular tables. Their tables are all tall

We had a 5:45 reservation, showed up and it was closing. Website said open until 7:00 so not sure what happened. We love the food so will have to come back for breakfast or lunch.

We came here after WCC's beautiful afternoon Readings and Carols. Loved the paninis! And the tortes and coffee! Excellent service and it was quite enough that we could talk comfortably. Highly recommended!

soooo happy we found this little gem via Open Table! Spent a lovely November Saturday enjoying yummy food, healthy but tasty options, and enjoyed people watching as we chatted. Small, intimate, was ideal place for a friendly business brunch with no pretense. The hostess and staff were awesome. We later Strolled and shopped #SmallBusinessSaturday down Nassau Street along Princeton University. Well worth the Hour + trip, thank you!

PS remember to feed the parking meter, even on Saturdays. Bring your quarters!

A perfect place for Sunday brunch with friends: not too crowded or noisy, nice omelets and good coffee. The brunch buffet , which one of us ordered, could have had more bread and pastry choices, and it curved around the pastry case so that we did not see half of it and no one directed us to all the offerings. However, Cafe Vienna beats standing in line at other places, and we all enjoyed it and would return. Note that it is at the far north end of Nassau Street.

Great brunch spot in Princeton and personal favorite. Modern cozy atmosphere with great outdoor seasonal seating. No long lines for mediocre food. This is the breakfast/brunch spot in Princeton. Cakes are delicious too!

The food was tasty and the service was fine. I would go back but maybe not on Sunday because it was too crowded and noisy.

There is no doubt that the coffee /cappuccino selections are great BUT the staff seemed totally overwhelmed. Despite making our order ( hot beverages only.. no food involved) as soon as we sat down we waited well over 20 mins to have our order delivered (and that was only because after 20 mins ,we actively pursued a sever to explain that we had not yet received our order) The noise level was high and made it hard to have a quiet conversation with friends on a Friday afternoon! 🙁

Everything in this place is amazing. Value of the food comparing with what you pay is excellent.

Every meal is enjoyable and delicious at Café Vienna....Even if you just have coffee and a pastry. Be sure to make a reservation. Hard to get seats. Reserve even if it is for coffee.

Very nice lunch. I had the chicken panini lunch special. It was tasty but there wasn't much to it. I think for what you get, it was a little overpriced. But I would go there to try different items because the food was tasty, the service friendly, and the atmosphere welcoming. Also, it's right next door to a cool homeopathic pharmacy, so we went there for chocolate after!
