Franciszek Trześniewski (Polish pronunciation: [fraɲˈt͡ɕiʂɛk tʂɛɕˈɲɛfskʲi]; died 1939) was an early 20th-century Polish gourmand and cook. Born in Kraków, at that time belonging to Eastern-Galicia (Austro-Hungarian-Monarchy), he is notable for the restaurant-bar he opened in Vienna in 1902, shortly before World War I. His spécialité de la maison were open sandwiches made of fresh, local dark bread cut into the typical rectangle-form with various spreads. After his death the bar was run by his daughter, Maria Trześniewska, who sold it in 1978. Nowadays the Trześniewski restaurant at Dorotheergasse 1, in Vienna, is considered one of the best in town and is one of only three restaurants of the city centre advertised by the official municipal website. In all, there are 8 outlets in the city, each selling more than 20 various types of sandwiches, along with a Pfiff of Beer (a small glass, 1/8l) or Vodka. The official motto of the company is Unspeakably good sandwiches, a reference to the Polish name of the founder, which is said to be unpronounceable to most German speakers.

  • cute experience to grab a tiny pint of beer;) various kinds of sandwich(not technically cause it is open sandwich)to choose from, as the kind woman explaining in English which is which. I was there (weekday opening time) when it was just open so not too much customers, but the weekend was very crowded so i passed that day. It was more like the taste of the density they've been creating with their life time and the fluidity of their time and effort. Beer was the cute , sandwich was cute , That morning was cute :) if you visit Vienna, why bother not to visit here :)

  • Nice, don't let the bad reviews turn you off. We've visited there on 7th September after 18:00. Many breads were sold out, but still plenty to choose from. We went for Scandinavian and smoked fish sandwich. Of course two 1/8 litre beer (smallest). You order your bread/sandwich at the display and pay at the counter. If you ordered a beer, you pay it there too and get it to your right where old fashioned looking guy pours it from the draft. The place is usually full, so you can often share a table with some stranger. You can either eat inside or outside. The menu is in German , English and also Japanese. We didn't check for other languages. The waitresses do may look annoyed or cold, but this is a typical Austrian and German attitude - not really bad, that is just a misunderstanding. They are polite and serve you well. Even although they have lots of explaining to do. Trust me, I'm sensitive about service and generally poor service level in Europe and especially Czech. But this place is nowhere near bad. Do not let the bad reviews get into you.

  • Awesome place for a quick bite and small beer.

  • Range of small open sandwiches and drinks. Great if you're in a hurry. In and out in 15 minutes. Not a place to sit back and relax.

  • It's hard to express how much this is what Vienna is and was. More than just a landmark institution as a place that serves delicious finger open-face sandwiches. Open face sandwiches are all over town in private homes and even in the theater buffets. But their sandwiches are famously good and classic. I can't imagine a Viennese not knowing Trzesniewski. To pronounce it correctly is a different matter, and fun for the children.They even advertise with the fact that their name is unpronounceable. It should sound something like "Chesniewski".
