Café Eskeles is named after Bernhard Freiherr von Eskeles who was born in Vienna in 1753. He grew up as the son of a rabbi and in 1773 he co-founded the band house: Arnstein and Eskeles. Later, Eskeles became one of the founders of the Austrian National Bank as well. This restaurant has received high remarks from travelers around the world and has been published in several newspapers and magazines. Though the cafe is located in the Jewish Museum, it is open to anyone who wants a unique Israeli dining experience in the center of Vienna. There are a wide range of vegetarian and kosher options, including the best Israeli and Austrian kosher wines to choose from. Some of the dishes rotate but, while the house favorites tend to stay around, there are always amazing Mediterranean and Israeli specialties to try.
