Immediately after its establishment in 1899, the Historic Café Museum became a Viennese artistic meeting place with status. Geniuses such as Gustav Klimt, Peter Altenberg and Adolf Loos were amongst its regulars. Café Museum is a place of inspiration, a coffee house with style. The proximity of the opera house, the Secession Building, the Musikverein (concert hall), the Vienna Museum, the Kunsthalle (contemporary art exhibition hall) and the Naschmarkt also lead people to our coffee house, which is part of the cultural life of the city of Vienna. Visitors love the simple elegance and cozy atmosphere of the Café Museum. They also appreciate the pleasant manners of our status-conscious waiting staff. Regular guests of the café in the early twentieth century included Peter AltenbergAlban BergHermann BrochElias CanettiGustav KlimtOskar KokoschkaKarl KrausFranz LehárRobert MusilLeo PerutzJoseph RothRoda RodaEgon SchieleGeorg TraklOtto WagnerFranz Werfeland Ernst Jandl.
