The benefits of eating a plant-based diet, not only for your own health, but also as a means of fighting climate change, have become widely accepted these days. According to the National Library of Medicine, eating a plant-based diet means you are less likely to suffer from high blood pressure or dangerous cholesterol levels, and you're also less likely to develop chronic diseases. From an environmental perspective, forgoing animal products will have a huge impact on reducing your carbon footprint. In these ways, eating a plant-based diet is a huge win-win for anyone looking to eat healthy, delicious food and help the environment, all in one fell swoop. 

These impactful benefits are not lost on the communities here in Vienna, Austria; our city is well-known for its delicious vegan and vegetarian restaurants, great plant-based health food stores, and a general consciousness for plant-based eating. In fact, Vienna was ranked the 4th best city for vegetarians by Nestpick in 2021, surpassed only by London, Berlin, and Munich. With this in mind, here are three incredible plant-based restaurants that you’ve got to check out for yourself! 

The Lala 

This pristine pink palace is a vegan queen’s dream! With two locations in Vienna, the Lala serves up delicious vegan food in a self-described “California lifestyle” kind of way. With a few tables for in-house eating and a focus on takeaway, this small but mighty restaurant serves delicious bowls, smoothies, lattes, protein shakes, brownies, and all kinds of other sweet treats. The main idea is to bring healthy, delicious food to the table without all the plastic, sugar, lactose and animal products of other restaurants. Check out their two locations, both in the 7th district. 

Swing Kitchen 

The best burger of your life awaits you at Swing Kitchen, and you’ll never believe it – it’s vegan! This tasty spot is intent on bringing all the delicious tastes of the American fast-food experience with none of the negative health and environmental side-effects. Choose from a great variety of burgers, wraps, fries, desserts and even onion rings when you stop in at any of the 5 locations in Vienna. The dining room is spacious and reminiscent of a classic American diner, so you’ll have the perfect environment to savour your delicious vegan dinner. 

Veggiezz

From soup to superfood rolls, and salads to vegan steak, this vegan restaurant is a jack of all trades. With more than 25 dishes to choose from across 9 categories, you’re sure to find something to suit your taste at Veggiezz! My personal favourite dish is the Quinoa salad – and don’t forget to complete your meal with a delicious dessert. Choose from two locations in Vienna, or perhaps even their location in Linz on your next day trip out west.
