Karmeliter district

After the Naschmarkt and the creative Neubau district Vienna’s pub, bar and art scene has discovered the Karmelitermarkt in the Second District. The Schöne Perle restaurant has made a name for itself as something of a culinary pioneer. The kitchen in Leopoldsgasse in the former Jewish quarter has been putting a new spin on traditional Viennese cuisine since 2002. Nowadays, the Schöne Perle is a successful example of the new bistros, with elegant interior furnishings and good food.

Diagonally opposite is Das Engel, where heavenly dishes are served at two large wood tables in a stylish and cozy atmosphere. A couple of houses further along, the long-established Vincent experiences culinary flights of fancy and is currently considered to be one of the best gourmet restaurants in the city.

A hot tip in the immediate vicinity is Skopik & Lohn, which attracts with its friendly yet modest interior, a garden for guests and Viennese cuisine with an international twist. On the way there, you'll pass by Pizza Mari, a trendy pizzeria.

The Karmelitermarkt, which has existed since 1671, is also constantly having new dining establishments added to it: Zimmer 37 is a delicatessen shop and restaurant combined. The owner offers vegetarian Five Elements cuisine. Fine weather can be enjoyed in relaxation in the sunny sidewalk café. Extended breakfasts - until long after midday on Saturday - can be enjoyed in the café-bar Einfahrt, located right on the edge of the market. Concerts, readings or cabaret evenings are often held here of an evening.

Tewa , like its sister restaurant at the Naschmarkt, offers modern and organic trendy cooking at the Karmelitermarkt. Directly adjacent is Kaas am Markt, a mix of delicatessen and restaurant, with excellent organic and slow-food products and snacks. The cute Cafemima offers various breakfast options and light dishes throughout the day as well as a nice atmosphere.

A bit farther, around the corner from the Karmelitermarkt, is the cake shop Fett+Zucker. A small shop with cute vintage furniture and a cozy atmosphere offering all kinds of cakes to lift your spirits.
