SINCE 1922


Welcome at Kaffee Alt Wien

in the center of Vienna

Wenn sie im Schatten des Stephansdoms stehen, den Klang der Pummerin und den der Hufe der Fiakerpferde hören, dann sind es nur wenige Schritte in die Bäckerstraße 9. Dort liegt im Herzen von Wien unser Kaffee Alt Wien. Ein Kaffeehaus mit einer ganz besonderen, fast Hundertjährigen Geschichte:

Old viennese ambience

The inner city of Vienna, the 1. district, is filled with impressive, historic architecture like the St. Stephen's Cathedral, the town hall or the Vienna State Opera. The Vienna ring road, the boulevard of Vienna, the street where you can find all those historic and unmissable buildings, is a World Heritage Site after all. It is always worth a visit and for your sightseeing break or the finale of you wonderful tour we love to invite you to our traditional Kaffee Alt Wien on the Bärengasse! Take a seat, lean back, relax and enjoy an invigorating coffee with a tasty piece of cake or strengthen yourself with one of our crispy Wiener schnitzel à la maison. We very much look forward to your visit.


Classical Viennese Goulash

What was once a simple soup, made of roasted meat and onions, cooked on an open flame for the shepherds back in the Middle Ages, is now a fiery speciality, nearly all our guests enjoy. Our goulash is made with love, passion and our best, hand-diced beef – made from thick flanks of the Austrian heifer. We hope you enjoy your meal!
Wir wünschen guten Appetit!

An experienced Team

A Team with Heart

A real traditional Vienna Melange needs an ardour coffee and preparation with love – a real traditional Vienna coffee house needs a passionate manager and love for the bean. This is the motto of the traditional family business Café Alt Wien. The unusual thing is, that the heart and soul of the nearly hundred-year-old coffee house hasn't changed since the beginning. The same feeling of revisiting the place you met your first love in, that is what we want to convey to you on your visit in Café Alt Wien. The team make sure about it!

The Kaffee Alt Wien was founded on the 14. October 1922 and was inherited by Leopold Hawelka and his wife Josefine in 1936, one day after their marriage. They operated the Kaffee Alt Wien until 1939, then they moved to the Dorotheergasse and there they purchased the Café Ludwig, which is known today as Café Hawelka. Ever since 1939 Kaffee Alt Wien is kept as a family business.
