Happy Place, Happy Staff, Happy Cakes ^_^

Posted on 08 / 10 / 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Happy Cakes while on vacation in Vienna, so much to the point that I went a second time, even though I was only there a few days! The staff are SO friendly (I met the mother and daughter who own Happy Cakes, and both were so pleasant). They were happy to serve me while seated, and we had a nice chat. Make sure to take a look at the cookies and cakes before sitting down, so you have an idea of what to choose. The cakes were AMAZING -- they don't "taste vegan" at all, and that's more proof a vegan diet can be just as fun and delicious (but cruelty-free) as compared to a non-vegan diet. Happy Cakes is a must visit for anyone in Vienna! I ordered a soy melange coffee, a lemon cake with maple glaze, a toffuti tart, and two cupcakes (raspberry cupcake and a peanut butter cupcake), both topped with vegan whipped cream/frosting.

Pros: very friendly staff, delicious cakes , lots to choose from

Great place to enjoy salty and sweet vegan snacks

Posted on 08 / 02 / 2013

The friendly owners offer directly next to the Franz Josef train station homemade vegan snacks. I love that they use primary organic and local food. This makes it even more interesting to support.

I have been there several times and tried the sweet and salty snacks. They have muffins and cupcakes which change every day. They are fluffy and very tasty. For a snack you can eat hummus, wraps, toast or a daily changing salad. I love the greek salad and toast.

You can also sit outside. Its very clean and a nice location to meet friends.

Pros: good portions, tasty sweets, friendly owners
Cons: too far from home, no delivery, no breakfast

50% off after 7 pm for sweet stuff!

Posted on 07 / 31 / 2013

Went there for happy hour. After 7 pm (until the café closes at 8 pm) all the sweet stuff is only half the price - which makes it a great deal!

We tried different muffins (blueberry, peanut-banana, sweet potato), a rasberry-vanilla-cupcake and the hummus plate. The sweets were all delicious, so was the cafe latte we had with it. The hummus plate included three scoops of differently flavoured hummus that were very nicely arranged and came with a roll and vegetable slices (carrots, cucumber and bell pepper). Unfortunately it was a bit boring and the hummus only okay.

The owners are super friendly and the place is very clean and welcoming. The only downside is its location a bit off from interesting areas. But Vienna is small and the café can be reached fast with public transportation, by foot or bike.

Pros: happy hour , yummy sweets, very friendly staff
Cons: location is a bit off
