This is my first guide and it will be quite short as I only spent 2 days in Vienna. If you plan to spend some time in this beautiful city the food shouldn´t be an obstacle. And here you really have everything you need from gluten free food to vegan sweets!
A few tips:
The drugstore DM always has a big variety of plant milk, nut butter, bread, sweets, etc., especially the store at the main station.
Do not miss the bakery stores of “Anker“. At the underground station “Stephansplatz” (at Stephans cathedral) they have a 100% vegan store. Apart from vegan bread and rolls you will find delicious sweets like apple pastries or a “Riesenschnecke” (like a cinnamon roll but filled with a cream made of nuts). They even have bismarcks here (filled with jam)!
“Blueorange” is a very modern Café that we found “on accident” (the weather was so cold that we had to get another coffee!). You will find it close to the beautiful Karls-church (see above). It is perfect for a quick lunch with a great choice of wraps, bagels, sandwiches and Desserts. Almost 25 % of the food is vegan; gluten free Options are available, too.
If you prefer savory food I´d recommend to visit “Veggiez“. This is a beautiful restaurant located near the state opera. Everything (burgers, wraps, sandwiches, even steaks!) is 100% vegan. They also have many gluten free options (like pasta and burgers). Another advantage: they set a high value on locally sourced food without flavor enhancer and the prices are not very expensive!
Spar and Billa are always a good address if you are looking for a supermarket. Even the small stores in the city centre have a choice of plant based and gluten free food. In my opinion travelling as a vegan gets easier. Our Hotel (NH Belvedere) had a choice of plant based milk (vanilla, chocolate and plain soy milk) at their buffet as well as cereals, bread and vegetable spreads.
