The reborn Viennese Cafe is a trusty port of call for both hungry and thirsty adventurers. This historic watering hole originally opened in 1829 and the chef here rustles up a host of classic Austro-Hungarian dishes. For a hearty snack try the redoubtable sausages with sauerkraut, whilst those after more refined confections also have plenty to choose from. The Viennese Cafe is just by the old Jesuit Church and on sunnier days chairs fan out across the terrace on Pidkovy Square.

I can't believe I went to the same place as the two other reviewers! The coffee shop was dull and dark inside with sulky staff.Very disapppointed.
Nice spot this, we give it the thumbs up. Try and sit outside...
Though pricey (in relative terms, of course,) the food at the Viennese Cafe is among the best in Lviv. The cafe offers many tender delightful meat dishes (especially veal) which come in a variety of sauces. Sides are puchased separately but are served on the same dish. The cafe has a wide selection of drinks, including of course alcohol and also refreshing fresh fruit smoothies. Service is very good for Lviv and the location can't be beat. Opt for outside seating if possible, it really does add the the atmosphere. The Viennese Cafe will treat you to a taste of Vienna, at only a fraction of Vienna prices.
