A Perfect Cafe on a Tree Lined Street

This restaurant across the street from the Mirabel Palace was a delight. On a wide open tree lined street we were lucky to be able to sit outside and enjoy our first rate tasty offerings. The special curry of the day was marvelous and there were several gluten free offerings, a plus for the... read more

Some places say it but they fail to deliver. Here they deliver. you don't get the feeling of being abnormal if you want Soja milk or honey or what ever, it is custom made. I just had the pleasure in enjoying Mamas Zuchini burger which was a dream. I'm looking forward to checking out the other daily specials in weeks... More

That's a nice place very near to Mirabell garden so it's worth visiting. Food is delicious, you can eat a whole meal there. But I especially recommend you vegan chocolate cake. Prices are...well normal for Austria. One peace is around 3,4€, cup of coffee around 2€. But it's healthy restaurant, so big plus :)

Sit on the front terrace and try the Heart of Joy Salad and a coffee after a day of walking in the hot sun. Fresh, real vegan food! There are a few other vegan things on the menu, some have dairy. Yummy breads! My BF even liked this place and he likes meat.

We ate at this place for breakfast, and it was wonderful. I ordered the porridge (similar to oatmeal if you are wondering). It was very good - served with fresh fruit, nuts & delicious maple syrup. I normally do not put any sort of sugar or sweetener in my oatmeal back home, but adding just a bit into this porridge... More

We walked in by pure chance is this café, not a typical Austrian place. The atmosphere was very relaxing and friendly, all inspired by the interesting philosophy and view of life of Sri Chinmoy, which clearly inspires the place. I had the best and healthiest yoghurt muesli ever. Well worth a visit to relax and eat healthily!

we enjoyed the vedic breakfast with an extra large portion of porridge with fruit and maple syrup. it came with tulsi tea and freshly-pressed apple carrot juice and ginger tea. the omelet was also delicious, and the impression we got from this cafe is that it is a peaceful, friendly joint with polite and very attentive waitstaff. it is always...

Good breakfast option for vegetarian/vegan/coeliacs - serves until 2pm at weekends, much more reasonable than standard hotel cost. Service not so great - long wait, not the most polite, and items were forgotten, despite asking three times. Also note German speaking is advised.
