15 Best Vegan Restaurants Vienna to Visit in 2022

The sheer amount of vegan restaurants Vienna has to offer is surprisingly huge! Considering Vienna is known for a meat-centric cuisine (i.e. Vienna sausages), you might not expect that

Lucky for us,  times are changing! And now, it’s easier than ever to find fantastic plant-based food in this monumental capital.

But that brings us to the dreaded question – which vegan restaurant do you go to?

Well, if you can’t go to all of them, you might as well go to the best! So here are the best 15 vegan restaurants Vienna locals are raving about!

1. Pizzi’s & Cream 

Pizzi's & Cream - Vegan Pizza in Vienna
  • Cuisine: Vegan Pizza & Ice Cream
  • Price: $$
  • Address: Burggasse 25, 1070 Vienna, Austria

No matter where you are in the world, a first-class vegan pizza restaurant is a must. And Pizzi’s & Cream is one of the best vegan restaurants Vienna is known for. Whether you want something classic or you want to get adventurous with a vegan tuna pizza, this is the place to go.

Pizzi’s & Cream was opened just before the world was altered by you know what, and now that in restaurant dining is an option, it is a can’t miss on any vegan’s list of Vienna.

Vegan Restaurants Vienna - Pizzi's & Cream Magic Mushroom Pizza

This all vegan pizza shop sells by the slice and by the pie. All the ingredients are top quality and mostly imported from Italy. The cheese, sauce and dough is made in-house, the latter of which takes two days to make!

This is by far the best vegan pizza I have ever had. I highly recommend the Capricciosa (cashew mozzarella, bacon, artichokes and Kalamata olives) and the Mag*c Mushroom (cashew mozzarella, mushrooms, truffle mayo and artichokes). I also recommend going with a friend or two so you have the chance to try more options.

  • Price: $
  • Address: Stollgasse 5, Vienna, Austria, 1070

Vevi is one of the vegan restaurants Vienna locals are always raving about. They offer delicious Vietnamese classics delivered Austrian style. From Bánh Mi for lunch to a huge bowl of Pho for dinner, you can’t miss out on Vevi. 

This fan-favorite focuses on healthy twists of traditional Vietnamese dishes for an incredibly affordable rate. You won’t find any other vegan restaurants that offer a full lunch menu for less than 10 euros!

3. Swing Kitchen

Swing Kitchen Vegan Burgers - Vegan Restaurants Vienna
  • Cuisine: Burgers
  • Price: $$
  • Address: Operngasse 24, 1040 Vienna, Austria 

The Swing Kitchen is another one of the best vegan restaurants Vienna has become known for.

What started as a local couple making simple burgers and wraps has turned into a huge Austrian chain of the best plant-based meals. They have even expanded to Berlin!

Their mission is to make fast food classics sustainable, eco-friendly, and completely plant-based. In other words – they’re like the exact opposite of every major fast food corporation (and with tastier options!).  

Their aptly named Kraut Pleaser is an absolute must! Homemade sauerkraut on top of a vegan schnitzel – what more could you want from your Vienna experience? I also really love their nuggets, and their sauces are divine!

Note: the above pic was taken in Berlin. I did not take the time to photograph my food before devouring it when I was in Vienna. I’m sure you understand.

4. Pepper & Ginny 

  • Cuisine: International Delicatessen 
  • Price: $$ 
  • Address: Ballgasse 5, Vienna, Austria, 1010 

Pepper and Ginny Vegane Veinkost is an upscale twist on international favorites, all while being completely plant-based. Although there are a ton of vegan restaurants Vienna has to offer – none of them are quite like Pepper & Ginny. 

This international bistro serves a fantastic vegan lox made from carrots and homemade cashew cream cheese to make any breakfast memorable. 

5. Veganista Ice Cream

Veganista Vegan Ice Cream in Vienna
  • Cuisine: Ice Cream

Veganista is probably the most famous vegan ice cream shop in Vienna. Everything is made in-house with all-natural ingredients for a high-quality scoop that you’ll be coming back to every day in the summer. 

From simple flavors like strawberry or maple pecan to the most amazing ice cream sandwich ever – “The Inbetwiener”, this shop is top for vegan ice cream enthusiasts!

My recommendations – the poppy seed, hazelnut, and the matcha flavors. And don’t be shy, get your scoops served in a cone. You won’t regret it.

There is so much to offer here that you’ll need to visit more than once and try it all. Not that you’ll mind one bit! But, be ready to wait. The lines are loooong.

8. Tau

Tau is the place to go when you’re in the mood for some vegan Asian-fusion cuisine.

If you want to try one of the most unique dishes from these vegan restaurants, Vienna’s Tau has a plant-based crispy duck option that is amazing! 

9. Cafe Harvest

  • Cuisine: Bistro
  • Price: $
  • Address: Karmeliterpl. 1, 1020 Vienna, Austria 

No list is complete without the go-to vegan brunch option. Cafe Harvest is one of the best vegan restaurants Vienna has when it comes to healthy, invigorating brunches.

They describe their completely plant-based menu as Viennese vegan soul food. So for prices as low as they are – Harvest Bistro is absolutely worth heading to. 

From an iced coffee that will bring you back to life to their Viennese Kasnockerl, this vegan Vienna favorite needs to be your next weekend spot.

11. Anker Brot

  • Cuisine: Bakery
  • Price: $
  • Address: Untergrundbahn Station, Stephansplatz 1709, 1010 Vienna, Austria
Anker Brot - Vegan Pastry Vienna

Anker Brot is a franchise that Austrians love. They might not be fully vegan, but they do a fantastic job at clearly marking their many vegan options.

If you’re in Vienna, you’re sure to find an Anker close by, so you’ll never have to go without a tasty treat. In fact, in the few days I was there, I came across at least four shops without even trying. There is even one in the main train station, so be sure to stock up (like I did) before boarding.

I highly recommend any of their sweet pastries, including the snail pastry. It’s like a cinnamon roll, but has a much more delicate flavor. Devine!

If you ever need to get your daily Austrian bread or just pop in to settle your sweet tooth with a riesenschnecke (a sweet bun), make sure to come to Anker. 

12. Hollerei 

  • Cuisine: Seasonal Upscale
  • Price: $$
  • Address: Hollergasse 9, 1150 Vienna, Austria 

Hollerei is all about a fully plant-based menu with an elegant dining experience. The dishes may be simple, but they’re expertly made and offer an upscale night out with a rotating seasonal menu. 

If you’re looking for classier vegan restaurants, Vienna’s Hollerei is always the right choice. But making a reservation is always a good idea, especially if you plan on going out for a nice dinner. 

13. Yamm! 

  • Cuisine: Austrian
  • Price: $$
  • Address: Universitätsring 10, 1010 Vienna, Austria 

Yamm! has a ton of different options to suit any vegan’s tastebuds, but where it really stands out is with its outstanding brunch buffet. 

The plant-based menu has Austrian classics and international favorites to make sure you have the best Sunday morning brunch of your life. And considering it’s located in the university district, you can bet you’ll find a lively ambiance to make your morning. 

The buffet is a bit pricier at €32.80, but for an all-you-can-eat buffet AND dessert – it’s definitely worth it. Go ahead – treat yourself!  

14. Bröselei 

  • Cuisine: Bakery
  • Price: $$
  • Address: Strudlhofgasse 1 (at Währinger Straße), Vienna, Austria, 1090 

Bröselei is a quaint vegan bakery that has a far bigger personality than you may think.  While the shop may just have a few colorful delicacies – the flavors are out of this world!

They have a rotating menu (as you can see – Austrians love rotating menus) and offer light lunches to go with their fantastic desserts. But what really stands out about this vegan, gluten-free bakery is their cooking classes.

This small bakery makes a point to teach others how to make the most out of plants and turn their recipes into art. So if you’re spending a long time in Vienna, make it a point to sign up for Bröselei’s renowned cooking classes! 

15. Sattva Vegan 

  • Cuisine: Rotating Menu
  • Price: $
  • Address: Apostelgasse 29-31, 1030 Vienna, Austria

The last spot on the list is a local favorite. Often voted as one of the best vegan restaurants Vienna has to offer, Sattva Vegan features a rotating menu made with local, seasonal ingredients. 

If you have extra time on a Monday, their spinach curry is absolutely the right choice! And you get to finish it off with an amazing cardamom apple strudel. 

And just like Bröselei, Sattva Vegan also offers vegan cooking courses to help you learn how to make their amazing flavors at home!
