Café Leopold Hawelka, Vienna: 13 reviews and 14 photos


Hawelka is a typical Kaffeehaus in Vienna and generations of students came here to "study".
And a "Wiener Kaffeehaus" does not necessarily mean that you will get there just Coffe and cakes but it is a sort of " living in public " having coffee, lots of glasses of fresh water ( free of charge and taken to the table without a bad word ), taste the famous " Buchteln " shortly after midnight and you will get lunch and dinner there as well.

Favorite Dish: And in a Kaffehaus like Hawelka there are 5 or 6 chairs around a table that would take 4 chairs in any other restaurant.
And you can take as many seats as you need, but EVERY empty seat might be taken by somebody else and that way you get company easily...

I know some people who spent the whole days of their student-live here in Hawelka...
