COOPER CITY (CBSMiami) — The Vienna Cafe and Bistro in Cooper City is an elegant and charming eatery owned by Hector and Sandra Guerra.

What started out as a coffee and tea house in 2004 is now a full on European style eatery fit for a queen, and you’ll spot her and the rest of The Royal Family in various locations throughout the restaurant.

Every day, high tea is served on fine China from Sandra’s mother’s personal collection.

The menu is very European with a flair towards English. They do classic British dishes like Yorkshire Pie, Bangars and Mash and also Viennese and French dishes.
