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.

We have been there today. Overpriced .....overpriced.... 12 Euro for a kilo of apricot, a bagel 2,50 euros... is a bit exaggerate, if not scandalous..... I can not say that are not good stuffs, this is why I gave to the shop a point and another one for the order which is in the store.

At the end of Graben Street you will find the Julius Meinl food emporium, which is not a conventional attraction but an interesting place to visit if you are into high-quality, international food brands. Food and drinks are displayed and presented nicely. There is a smaller vegetable and meat section that perhaps expected, while cheese, oil, vinegar and wine sections... More

Absolutely fantastic if good-quality food excites you! The product range is great: they have a huge variety of products from all over the world. The place is a bit small for all the goods they have on display, but still spacious enough make the shopping enjoyable! Only thing is that the prices there are higher than other places in Vienna.
