Food and dining in Gay Vienna.

In recent years, local chefs around Vienna have elevated the classic Viennese fare of schnitzels and strudels, kasierschmarrn and topfentortes. With so many farms and wineries in the immediate region, there is also a strong emphasis on locally grown food. Gasthaus Immervoll, in the First District, is a great example of a Viennese restaurant with traditional cuisine backed by modern thinking. There’s also tons of creativity at Steirereck Meierei, consistently listed as one of the best restaurants in the world.

The Motto is perhaps the ultimate hotspot in Vienna, and features an outstanding menu. Everyone who is anyone meets for a drink in the stylized, but very comfortable bar. The clientele is mixed, and the percentage of prominent people high. Designer Helmut Lang was a waiter here before he became a fashion tsar. The Motto am Fluss on the Danube Canal and the hall in the MuseumsQuartier also belong to the “Motto empire”.

Sixta restaurant on the Schönbrunnerstraße in the fifth district combines rustic charm with modern accents. In short: It’s very cozy in the Sixta. The menu offers everything that fans of Viennese cuisine desire.

Classical music, red silk, long opening hours, good food, and a mixed clientele: the Santo Spirito, in a small side street right near St. Stephen’s Cathedral, enjoys great popularity among gays and lesbians.

Café Willendorf is a legendary café in the gay and lesbian center of Vienna, the Türkis Rosa Lila Villa, is the heart of the gay and lesbian scene focused on the Naschmarkt. The picturesque courtyard is an oasis in the heart of the city

  • Stop for a coffee!

    No trip to Vienna is complete without a visit to a coffeehouse. Café culture is in the very DNA of the Viennese.Walk through the doors into an aromatic and elegant worldof flavours. Try a Kleiner Schwarzer; well before the Italians originated the concept of espresso, the Viennese were knocking back these little invigorating shots of black coffee. If you prefer your coffee with milk go for a Melange, a mix that is quintessentially Viennese: coffee, milk and textured milk foam, accompanied by an apfelstrudel, of course. Recommended cafés include the vintage Cafe Central, Kleines Cafe, Cafe Korb, Cafe Diglas and Demel.
