Until a couple of years ago, Café Museum had a nicely welcoming and shabby feel to it, which made it more homely than it is now. All the chipped and scratched and cracked vestiges have now been removed - and the Adolf Loos-designed interior, which had hitherto been on display in the Hofmobiliendepot was reinstalled. The seating has been given a fresh lick of red paint - a bit to gaudy for my liking and the place is too clean and tidy rather than functional and well-loved. This café used to be one of Klimt and friends' favourites, being a stone's throw away from the Secession. Fortunately the whole refit doesn't appear to have overly changed the clientèle - remaining popular among students (the Technical University is very close) and chess players alike. Prices are around average - which considering how central it is, really is not bad.

Favorite Dish: There is a good range of pastries and light snacks to be had including breakfast staples such as ham and eggs and croissants.
