Vegetarian Restaurants in Vienna
Vienna is a wonderful city, probably the most popular tourist destinations in all of Western Europe. The “City of Music” also boasts one of the world’s most famous culinary traditions. A diverse yet harmonious range of dishes, in fact, reflects the city’s mix of ethnic groups and food cultures developed through the centuries, so that any visitors can find what best suits their taste.
Even though the Viennese and vegetarianism do not always go hand in hand, there is also a vast choice of vegetarian restaurants in the city as well.
The restaurant Wrenkh, located at Bauernmarkt in Vienna’s Innere Stadt, was one of the first vegetarian restaurants in the city, and has become synonymous with fine but simple vegetarian fare. Since 1982, the example has been followed by many, with the opening of thousands of vegan and vegetarian restaurants all around the city.
So here’s a list of some of the most popular veggie eateries in Vienna. Enjoy the savory delights which might make your trip even more unforgettable.
Bio Bar von Antun, in Drahtgasse 3: 90% organic and Vegan food, open 7 days a week, this restaurant – housed in a charming baroque house – is also perfect for business lunches, quite cheap too, as it features a large choice of a la carte options with prices ranging from €7 to €15.
Vegetarisches Formosa Foods, in Barnabitengasse, 6, is a lacto and Vegan-friendly restaurant which also features international cuisine. Average price is 7.50/8.00 Euros. The restaurant also has a small shop attached that sells Vegan cheeses, cakes, a few sandwiches and vegetarian meat substitutes.
