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.

Came here three times during our 10 days in Salzburg. Located on a quaint street near the Mirabell Gardens. This is a very clean well maintained cafe geared towards healthy lifestyles. Food great and plated nicely, excellent coffee and juices, very nice wait staff. Scrambled eggs and omelets are delicious……. we really enjoyed it here!

We've had a really nice meal. The food was really tasty and the price really good. I tried myself "pumpkin risotto" -delicious! The staff were very nice, a difficult thing to find in Austria, based in our experience. A place to come back for sure!

In a country that so reveres its meat and potatoes, I was wondering if I'd be able to find a decent vegan meal. Thanks to the Happy Cow app, I found The Heart of Joy in Salzburg. The best part of this Chimnoy-inspired restaurant was how very Austrian it was, in spite of the international menu. We arrived at lunch... More

I didn't actually visit but friends bought me a take away sandwich grill today and it was delicious. My daughter was there with the friends and insisting we go back for lunch tomorrow. She is usually a hard person to please so it must be good.

After eating eggs and ham so many times in Austria, we needed a break. Happened upon this place. Looked liked groups of friends meeting for breakfast - a really nice atmosphere. The food was excellent - I had chia porridge with coconut milk, nuts, and fruit. Just what I needed!

We are vegan/vegetarian and stopped here for a light lunch. The sandwiches are very good. The kids who usually are not fond of vegetarian only restaurants enjoyed it too.
