Far from the madding crowd and the excess of meat products which abound in Austria, this cafe is an oasis of calm. We had breakfast before the Sound of Music tour and it was a lovely start to the day. Vegan and vegetarian and completely delicious. It's good and good for you ❤️

Great place. Relaxing and the food is great! The little cards that come with the food are a nice touch. Amazing sweet potato soup and berry nut cake!

We went to Heart of Joy Cafe because Cafe Fingerlos was full and didn't accept any walk-ins for breakfast. I was very pleased with the new choice. The service was fast and friendly. The food was healthy and fresh. This is the place for vegans and vegetarians. I ordered the omelette with veggies. I would go again.

We (three friends-one male and two females) have visited this cafe during a short trip to Salzburg in November 2016. We were just looking for a place to have a tee or coffee and walked across the street from Sheraton Congress Center. The place is quite, clean, and inviting. Once being in the café we were greeted by an employee... More

What a find, cushions and blankets for outdoor seating, luckily not needed as we had such beautiful weather. Breakfast for two was €20 for scrambled egg, Lattes and freshly squeezed OJ, we loved the presentation and its great to know all their produce is organic and freshly made - no microwave used! Highly recommend, can't fault it.

The food was lovely, with lots of different options and varieties between vegetarian and vegan. The coffee was different but pleasant. It was a lovely experience with great service. You may struggle if you don't speak much German as they didn't really know how to speak anything but german. They could not say much in English. But overall a great... More

I wish this place had more offerings- they only had a few sandwiches to choose from when I came in the afternoon. I had their goat cheese/tomatoe/lettuce sandwich- pretty good. I really enjoyed their beetroot juice- very good! Their vegan (and some of them raw) cakes looked delicious but I was full at that point- I meant to go back.... More
