Tips from the Net @ Café Westend

Unfriendly and dirty place! We were robbed there! They actually billed us for extra ketchup, mayonnaise and salad without asking! GooglePlace - November 2017

A trap, not only for tourists For a longer time Cafe Westend has the reputation of a tourist trap. Still I was not smart enough to check the receipt when I got it. I got deceived by the friendly waiter and myself being Viennese and not a tourist. After leaving the cafe I checked the receipt, they charged me 7,70€ for a coffee and a "soda zitron". The actual price should have been 6,20€. I went back, confronted the waiter, and he said he can't imagine charging too much, he can't remember (it was 5min ago). This deceitful behavior has nothing to do with the "rough charme" of Viennese waiters, this is just trickery and stealing. DO NOT support this behavior, DO NOT consume anything there, AND IF check the receipt immediately. The conduct of business is a shame for Viennese coffee culture. I should have asked the name of the young blond waiter to call him out here. He basically hustled money from me, and I also had given an adequate tip. GooglePlace - November 2017

A complete rip-off! They brought us what we thought were complimentary bretzels, peanuts and a wiener, then they charged us for them when it came to paying. We were expecting the bill to be abut 30 Euros and they charged us more than 48 Euros. Advise NOT to go there. Should be called The Worst End. GooglePlace - October 2017

His place was awful. We did not feel welcomed, the service was barely there, they brought over a stale pretzel, ketchup, and mayo without asking if we wanted it and then charged us 2 euro for each! Not to mention my husband had food poisoning the very next morning at 3am as we were leaving for the airport, a 16 hour day of travel. It was awful. Worst experience we have had. Terrible way to end our honeymoon. I recommend going to some cafes downtown, they were wonderful. GooglePlace - October 2017

You should not miss this well preserved, historic, classically L-shaped Viennese coffee house. Atmosphere has been somewhat ruined by a new management, and a rather rude staff. Not like the typical Viennese grumpy waiter, no, more like really plain awful. The food is OK, but slightly overpriced. They try every trick in the book to make you pay for everything and nothing. You just want to stick to your espresso and leave this otherwise wonderful interior as quick as possible. GooglePlace - May 2017
