Vegans in Salzburg: The Top 4 vegan restaurants in Salzburg

by editor

Are you a vegan traveling to Salzburg? 

We found the top 4 vegan restaurants in Salzburg and we are ready to present them to you!

This guide will have your vegan dishes covered for a solid two night/three day stay so get your pen and paper ready as we are about to run through our list of the best vegan eats in Salzburg! 

We know what you’re probably thinking… Salzburg, a historical little city wedged between alpines and lakes.  How many (if any) vegan options could there possibly be in a seemingly traditional Central European town of 150,000 inhabitants?!

And you’re absolutely right, while there aren’t too many vegan restaurant options as opposed to its bigger brother Vienna, Salzburg’s vegan food scene is surprisingly on the rise, you won’t have a problem sustaining an all plant-based diet when you visit us.

With so many things to do in Salzburg, you’ll be sure to work up an appetite and if your vacations mainly revolve around food, this list will get you salivating!

So here we go!

Read on to see our compiled list of the 4 best vegan restaurants (and eats) in Salzburg.

*Note:  The following list is not in any chronological order.

1. THE KEEP LIVING VEGAN RESTAURANT

We couldn’t help ourselves but start off this list with a little shameless self-promoting. 😜

Launched earlier this year in March, 2020 we introduced the newest addition to our Keep Family.  The Keep Living Restaurant is a purely vegan restaurant conveniently located on the ground floor of our hotel.  

We stand strongly by our philosophy and serve fresh and healthy plant-based dishes for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea.

(vegan dinner nights coming soon).

Our unique concept only uses ingredients that have been locally and ethically sourced from the region and we even have our very own in-house Keep Urban Garden where our herbs and seasonal vegetables are hand-picked and used in our cooking on a daily basis.

We are the only vegan restaurant in Salzburg that is 100% organic.

And to take things even further, we’re also the only vegan restaurant in this region that is based on a “Pay as you Feel” payment system.

What does this mean? In short, you pay for what you feel is the true value of the meal you consumed. 

By doing this, we put the responsibility on you and experiment with non-conventional formalities as our intention with the restaurant is more about educating and providing pure value rather than just thinking about our bottom line.  

**(please note:  this payment system is offered to our breakfast buffet and weekend brunches).

2. GUSTAV

Is one of our favorite vegan restaurants in Salzburg. In fact, this cute little hole-in-wall bistro style cafe was the first all-vegan restaurant to enter Salzburg’s food scene. 

This is the perfect spot to enjoy lunch after your tour of Mirabell Palace and Gardens as it’s only a short stroll away. 

This locally owner-operated vegan restaurant in Salzburg is run by a ray of sunshine who goes by the name of Denise Hagopyan.  As you walk in, you will almost always see her busy behind the coffee machine doing her thing.

Speaking of coffee, Gustav offers some of the best freshly brewed coffee in town and for those looking for their daily dose of Matcha or Beetroot latte, this is quite possibly the only spot in town where you can enjoy a delicious cup.

You will also find a delightful range of vegan-only daily specials on rotation during the weekdays alongside must-try signature dishes like their sandwiches, warm bowls and salads.

With its quirky interiors and mish-mash of old furniture, you’ll feel right at home as soon as you enter it’s doors.

Wolf-Dietrich-Strasse 33, Salzburg

3. THE HEART OF JOY CAFE

We decided to add this spiritual and harmonious establishment to the list even though they’re not a strictly all-vegan restaurant in Salzburg.

Reason being is because many of their dishes are in fact plant-based or can be made vegan upon request.

Offering a tasty selection of predominantly organic vegetarian and vegan dishes for breakfast, lunch and an early dinner, The Heart of Joy Cafe cooks with wholesome and healthy ingredients with emphasis on the importance of using fair-trade ingredients.

Furthermore, they avoid usage of typical and otherwise convenient cooking apparatuses such as the microwave and induction cookers.

They also strictly avoid refined additives like yeast extract, white sugar and monosodium glutamate, which isn’t so great for our bodies.

You will also find a surprisingly diverse range of 50 different flavors of Ayurvedic teas from Nepal and for coffee lovers, their delicious organic coffees won’t disappoint. 

Pair with a slice of one of their freshly made cakes to end a perfect day in Salzburg.

Location: 

Franz-Josef Strase 3, Salzburg

Opening hours: 

  • Breakfast is available 7 days of the week from 8:00 -11:00 AM from Monday – Thursday and all-day from 8:00-8:30 PM every Friday – Sunday
