My favourite part of travelling to Europe is the food. This store, in the Inner Circle near the Stephansdom, is a European Foodie's Dream come true! Floored by the selection, helpful staff, and, personally, I thought the prices were reasonable. We do not have any stores like this in Canada, partly because it is hard to get so many countries'...

Meinl am Graben is the only reminder of a once nation-wide chain of food stores. While they were of generally high quality in the country-side and considered sources of delicatessen, the Viennese outlets were of varying appeal. All of these have now been either sold to competitors like Spar and Billa or closed, only the Meinl am Graben remained. 20... More

I think, the best food store in Vienna. Huge choice of fine foods from all over the world, must buy always something. A little expensive, but can buy such foods, that never in other shops. I like it very much. The staff is very polite and helpful, if you dont find something. Definitely recommend.

one might say expensive, one might say great. it all depends on what you want and do. No one forces you to shop. you are free to walk around and enjoy window shopping. for me is a great place to stroll by. if you do not find it here. difficult to find elsewhere what you are looking for.

This store has virtually every gourmet item you could ever imagine. 4,000 euros bottle of cognac, marzipan ladybugs, delicious charcuterie, gorgeous pastries, grocery items form around the world and more individual brands of beer than I've ever seen in one place. The cafe is in front on the street, a great pace to watch the busy world of central Vienna... More

Don't buy anything from here you could get in another supermarket - prices are at least double from what I saw. I didn't find anything special I wanted to buy here so I left empty handed and won't be going back.

Julius Meinl Am Graben is a great place to go if you are looking for that extra something special to buy as a present for someone, as you find stuff here that is not available to buy elsewhere. But before you buy something in this shop, be sure that you can't get it anywhere else because the prices here are... More

Hard core cook or just a fan of fine foods and ingredients, one has to enter this store and get carried away by the colors of products gathered from all around the world. This place is a shock on your senses and you'll soon find yourself tasting the in-house sushi, buying a red-hot New Orleans sauce or maybe just admiring... More

We tried the café and it was very good. Service was excellent. We sat down, ordered coffee and cake. It was an enjoyable time, no pressure to finish and go, not crowded, good view of the street. They have so many different kinds of coffee that made ordering a bit challenging, but good fun.
