A foodie heaven. Fantastic range of quality food both fresh and packaged. Their own brand of coffee is superb and they also do a great range of China and Indian tea. Fresh dairy produce and breads are good. You can get 'take away' coffee or sit in. It is though about 25% more expensive than other food stores, especially compared... More

Eating is something that we must do. And to have such exquisite food and wine all in one place, the containers designed to attract an eye is a specal attraction for more than one sense. The atmosphere in the store is calm and pleasant not the style of a shopping mall. Also the Christmas arrangements are tasteful and catch the... More

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

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
