Plate with a vegetarian dish

Hungry for vegan

Cuisine à la vegan

Fine dining also offers the possibility of eating vegan: Truly fresh is the JOLA – a totally new vegan restaurant – without an à la carte offering, but instead with special surprise menus. The menus comprise several dishes, the cooking is seasonal and regional. Thus up to nine courses are served. If you'd prefer to sample something new instead of having wine as an accompaniment then you can taste your way through self-produced, fermented beverages.

Upscale vegan cuisine is served by Tian in Vienna city center. This vegan restaurant is definitely one of Vienna's luxury restaurants: Here, you can enjoy exciting vegan and vegetarian menus that have even been awarded a star by the Michelin Guide. The elegant Vollwertrestaurant Lebenbauer in the 1st district also offers a colorful repertoire of creative dishes, almost all of which can be prepared in a purely vegetarian style. At the vegetarian/vegan restaurant Landia, guests can even eat a vegan version of the Viennese classic "Onion roast with bread dumpling".

It is almost always possible to order purely vegan in the oriental bistros and restaurants on Vienna's Naschmarkt. Delicacies from the Middle East entice alongside meat-free dishes from the Far East. Asian cuisine such as Thai, Indian or Japanese contains many vegan dishes by their very nature, and Vienna's organic restaurants are often vegan and vegetarian.

Buffets & takeouts

Vegan superfood California-style is cooked at The Lala – enjoy to go or in the pink-designed eatery.

It has long been known that fast food can also be healthy, as is proved by the Venuss Bistro on Muthgasse. The buffet offers a colorful selection of cold and hot vegan dishes – also to go.

Vegetasia is a long-standing establishment in Vienna, having first opened in 1988. Here the dishes are prepared with fresh natural ingredients that are free from glutamate and in accordance with the five elements of traditional Chinese medicine. The All You Can Eat Buffet and the Hot Pot Buffet are particularly popular.

Spontaneously vegan?

For a quick bite to eat: fast food can also be vegan! Many restaurants in Vienna show that burgers and other fast food favorites also taste really good in the vegan or veggie version. Vegan pioneer Karl Schillinger serves very popular meat-free fast food at the five locations of his Swing Kitchen. And yes, the vegan burgers taste as good as they look. The Loving Hut is an innovative fast-food chain with two outlets in Vienna and offers exclusively vegan meals. The vegan bistro chain Veggiezz is represented with two outlets in Vienna and serves burgers, chickpea pasta, wraps and more with meat substitutes. Lin’s veggie DUMPLIN’ offers authentic, vegan Taiwanese dishes such as dumplings, noodle soups, bao zi (steamed buns), zha jiang noodles and the very popular spicy Volcano Noodle Soup.

Cafés & bistros

At Süßkind Veganery, quality and an awareness of food come top of the list – that's why the 100% organically certified dishes are only available while stocks last. If you can't make up your mind then opt for "all sorts" for a little bit of everything. The Tian Bistro is just made for vegan breakfasts and brunches. At the restaurant Schlicht Vegan, the focus is on vegan Austrian cuisine and a zero-waste philosophy. Because having a picnic in Vienna is so nice, you can pre-order a vegan picnic basket including blanket from Harvest Bistro on Karmelitermarkt, before you head for a picnic in the nearby Augarten, Prater or on Danube Island.

Café Ausnahmsweise serves up delicious gluten-free, vegan patisserie with ingredients from controlled organic cultivation. Warm dishes such as lentil curry are also served at lunchtime. At Vienna's first fully vegan ice cream parlor, Veganista Ice Cream, you can eat vegan ice cream at several locations: both unusual and "classic" varieties are prepared sustainably and fairly here, completely without animal products.

Unusual vegan restaurants

The Gagarin has an abstract impact not only because it is named after the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin but also because the anti-commercially run café offers customers the possibility to settle up according to the "pay as you wish" principle. The collectively run café offers space for simple but good vegetarian/vegan food and social interaction. Also atypical is Rupp's, an Irish pub with a vegan touch on the menu.

Tip: A look at the restaurant database of the Vegan Society in Vienna is worthwhile.
