Vegetarian restaurants in Vienna

Vienna goes vegetarian

An increasing number of people, and not only in Vienna, are vegetarians and consciously abstain from consuming meat. The many vegetarian eating establishments in Vienna impressively show that vegetarians are well looked after in the city. From the vegetarian and vegan burger chain to high-class gastronomy – Vienna is a veritable paradise for locals and visitors alike who wish to refrain from eating meat with a clear conscience.

A local burger chain which is 100% free from animal products

This is Pamela Anderson’s favourite eating establishment when she visits Vienna: the Swing Kitchen. There are now three branches in the inner city (in the Wieden, Neubau und Josefstadt districts of the city), one in the Shopping City Süd (known to locals as the “SCS”, one of the largest indoor shopping centres in Europe) and one in Graz. The success of the restaurants is partly due to their focus.

The ambience of the Swing Kitchen is reminiscent of classical burger joints in the USA, the music as well as the outfits of the employees make their guests feel as if they have gone back in time to the 1950s – the era of swing. On the menu you will find various burgers as well as wraps and wonderful coleslaw. And of course, veggie nuggets and vegan desserts, such as the American classics, cheesecake and donuts, are also available.

Ein Beitrag geteilt von V i c k y (@vctra) am

In the heart of Vienna, a mere 5-minute walk from St. Stephen’s Square, you will find the Jewish Museum, Vienna in the wonderful Dorotheergasse. The museum is not only well-known for its exhibitions but also for its culinary delights. Cafe Eskeles has its own entrance in the lower area. The Cafe offers both kosher and vegan food. In particular at lunchtime during the week, the Cafe Eskeles can be very busy and, for this reason, it is advisable to book a table in advance. The lunch menus, which are reasonably priced in comparison to other menus in the inner city, are especially popular with the Viennese who work nearby. Here you will find a wide range of Mediterranean and Oriental dishes, such as falafel,

A high-end award-winning restaurant cooks 100% vegetarian and also vegan

The Tian in Vienna is a vegetarian phenomenon and at the same time an amazing experience. Here meat-free food is cooked and eaten at the highest possible level. The website writes in a self-confident manner: “Our performance has been honoured with numerous awards: a Michelin star (2014) and three Gault-Millau toques (17 of 20 points since 2014) is a first for a vegetarian restaurant in Vienna”. This is of course reflected in its prices. The Tian is not the place for a quick snack. Time is needed in order to fully appreciate the culinary delights on offer. The interior of the restaurant and the professional service contribute to making a visit here a perfect dining experience. At

The interior of the restaurant and the professional service contribute to making a visit here a perfect dining experience. At lunchtime a small choice of cheaper menus is available at the Tian and in the Dependance in Spittalberg, which is the “Tian Bistro”. Also here the food is exclusively vegetarian. The atmosphere as well as the dishes are more relaxed, more urban but the food is at least just as delicious.

The central locations of the Veggiezz make it an ideal place for visitors

For a long time now, the Veggiezz has been successfully running restaurants at three locations in Vienna. Two are centrally situated in the inner city – on the Ring near the Opera House and at Salzgries, which is very close to Schwedenplatz – as well as in the city’s ninth district, Alsergrund. The menu is more than extensive and almost everybody – vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians or carnivores – will find something to satisfy their hunger.

Here you can choose from salads, pasta dishes, quinottos (currently popular and trendy in various forms) to wraps and burgers with home-made chips or sweet potato fries. The vegan steaks are well worth a special mention – they are made from seiten (wheat gluten with a consistency similar to meat) with a wide choice of toppings and dips. The vegetarian restaurant chain is perfect if you want a quick snack but also for an extended lunch or dinner in a cosy atmosphere.

Veggiezz
Stores:
Salzgries 9, 1010 Vienna
Opernring 6, 1010 Vienna
Alserbachstraße 30, 1090 Vienna
Opening times: Monday to Friday: 11 am – 11 pm
Saturday: 12 pm – 11 pm
Sunday: 12 pm – 10 pm

You can also find 100% vegan – i.e. without any animal products – ice-cream in Vienna. In five branches spread throughout the first district, the “Veganista” team provides its customers almost all year round with ice-cream cones, cups and sandwiches.
