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. Nowadays, the Schöne Perle is a successful example of the new bistros, with elegant interior furnishings and good food. Diagonally opposite is the Marktlücke, where Austro-Mediterranean cuisine is served in a stylish and cozy atmosphere. Particularly worth recommending: the dishes with fish and seafood.
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. At the Weinschenke am Karmelitermarkt, there are wonderful burgers, Pizza from the wood oven and authentic southern Italian cuisine are served in the Pizza Quartier.
The Schank zum Reichsapfel on Karmeliterplatz invites you to pay it a visit. The city heuriger offers goods wine and a wonderful heuriger buffet. Particularly recommendable are the smoked and cured products. 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.
