Cafe Landtmann, our Review

We’ve just returned from a very pleasant visit to Sigmund Freud’s local: Café Landtmann. The 1873 building exudes a lovely charm, both from outside and inside. Service is very friendly and quick. We were led to our table and ordered the local staple dish: Viennese schnitzel to share.
