Please keep in mind that it is usual to give tips here in Austria. It is not compulsory, but if you don't give anything at all, it might be interpreted as an offence or a sign that the service wasn't good. The amount is variable, but it's roughly 10% or you bring it up to the next round figure (e.g. € 2,90 --> € 3,00 or € 2,20 --> € 2,50).
