totally creamy ice cream. different flavours are changing.
I've tried quite a few types of vegan ice cream, and the two flavours I had here (pistachio and maple and pecan) were by far some of the best! Not too sweet, with strong flavour, and whole nuts and chunks in the maple and pecan scoop. There is a very impressive choice – I took so long to choose that I had to apologise to the waiter! - and I particularly like that not only one type of milk is used – soy, rice and oat milk-based flavours are available. The price is about average for Vienna (it cost me 3.80 Euros for a cone with two scoops), and they also have a loyalty stamp card. It's quite near to the city centre and stays open until 20, even on Sundays, which is quite unusual for the city. With friendly staff and absolutely no non-vegan items, this is definitely worth a look.
Veganista's ice cream was delicious! A great variety of flavors to choose from, classics as well as innovative, and a helpful staff that was happy to advise.
This is the best vegan ice cream shop I've ever been to. (It's also the only one). This is genuinely very good however, and well worth a visit. Very close to the galleries too. There was lots of choice.
This is a bit of a melodramatic review because I want to express the real joy I had eating Veganista's ice-cream.
It was really delicious - it was ice-cream bliss.
I took 3 non-vegan friends there too and they were equally complimentary - this place just sells fantastic tasting creamy ice-cream in both interesting and traditional flavours.
And the friendly staff will let you try out little samples to find your favourite flavours.
The highlight of my trip to Vienna was eating 4 generous scoops of maple-pecan, cookie, coconut and brownie flavours. All vegan. All scrumptious.
I can't recommend this place enough - no trip to Vienna should be without a visit. I only long for there to be an ice-cream parlour like this in the UK!

I'm so happy I took the chance on Veganista Ice Cream, even though I'm not the biggest ice cream fan. The selection was enormous, and best of all: it tasted EXACTLY like the "real" thing, only no animal cruelty involved (and possibly healthier). I ordered a double scoop of ice cream (cappuccino flavour and cookies and cream) in a cone and I was so shocked at how amazing it tasted. It even left me with that "full and heavy" feeling that dairy ice cream used to, but without the awful feeling that follows a few hours later. The only downside was the location was small and in a bit of a secluded part of town, and so there wasn't much seating inside. That being said, I took my cone to go, and all was good :)
I have the fortune of living practically across the street from Veganista and have had the pleasure of watching this small neighborhood business grow from an unknown vegan ice cream parlor to a mega-sensation featured in gourmet magazines such as Falstaff.
Veganista has added so much flavor (literally and figuratively) and color to our neighborhood. More importantly, it's opened people's hearts, minds, and tastebuds to veganism. As I pass by the shop daily, I see the line of people eagerly waiting for vegan ice cream grow longer and longer. It winds down the sidewalk, and in our neighborhood you can find Veganista fans strolling the streets, ice cream in hand, or sitting on benches, on window sills, or leaning against the walls of other shops in the area enjoying delicious vegan ice cream.
The shop has gotten truly creative with their flavors, extending their menu beyond the basic chocolate and strawberry varieties to appeal to more challenging gourmet palates with magnolia, cherry and ylang-ylang, lavender blueberry, Earl Grey, or rosemary-pine nut ice cream.
In short, Veganista makes - quite possibly - the best ice cream in Vienna. Non-vegans rave about it and long-time vegans are thrilled to finally have our sweet tooths met in a highly satisfying way.
You can't ask for more: It has a big variety of flavours, including some surprising flavors; The ice cream feels creamy and not like boring sorbet; The taste is of course excellent; And the staff is charming.
There is nothing better than ice cream to make me feel good, and there is no ice cream better than "Veganista Ice Cream".
As the review title says ... I've never eaten a better ice cream before! At Veganista your ice cream dreams come really true!
Besides fixed flavours like cookies (omg! *_*), chocolate, hazelnut and of course fruity ones like raspberry or strawberry they also offer special creations like orange-olive oil-safran, basil or matcha tea! And they also always surprise with special flavours, which change from time to time :) I was able to try lavendar-blueberry, noble bitter chocolate with bergamot or rosemary with pine nuts! Sounds weird but tastes divine! :) They do not use flavour enhancer or anything else than what should be inside and I think you really taste the difference! :)
The staff is always very friendly and never get tired of explaining the basis of the ice cream which is soy, oat and rice milk and that they also use different kinds of sugar like agave and maple syrup or birch tree sugar in some flavours.
It is absolutely worth it to go there :)
hands down, the best vegan ice cream in the world.
I love the variety and creativity! Plus, their staff is the absolute friendliest you'll find in good old grumpy Vienna. I love this place.
Really what's not to love? Friendly, helpful staff, amazing range of vegan ice cream. We had two of their specials - maple pecan and cookies. Amazingly good. Big portions, their one scoop is pretty generous. I saw a cone ahead collapse under the weight of 3 kugels!
ice cream in town ;)
Excellent vegan ice cream! They actually managed to make the ice cream have a creamy consistency which is rare to find with vegan ice creams. Great selection of flavours with a lot of original styles. The hazelnut cream I had was amazing along with strawberry.
Unfortunately I only got to visit the place once. If I had to criticize the place for something they should really consider adding tables because just sitting on some chairs by the wall on the side is just akward and not very inviting.
I went there few times already because it's close to my house and it's just tasty great ice cream... just try it. Even my non vegan roommate loved it.
Having read some great reviews on the place, I managed to go there on a Sunday afternoon to get some unusual ice cream flavours and I was not disappointed. Between my boyfriend and myself, we tried 6 different flavours and they were all great - cappuccino, orange-olive oil-safran, basil, matcha, poppy seed and the heavenly "cookie" ... they may seem expensive but the quality is excellent and the ingredients natural and mostly organic - definitely worth coming back soon!
I really often miss good vegan ice cream. This ice cream parlor is fantastic! I highly recommend pecan-maple and raspberry! Simply divine. Definitely the best vegan ice-cream I ever had.
Some flavors are very "creative" and not my thing but if you like basil, cucumber or other creative flavors, this is the place to go.
The only thing I am really still missing are vegan sundaes.
that's like paradise!
creative variations ... no matter if flavors or ingredients
and they were so kind to provide gluten free cones!
When I saw that there is gonna be a pure vegan ice cream shop in Vienna, I was so excited! Being a vegan the thing I missed most is probably ice cream, and there is only very few choices of vegan ice cream sold in shops, which i dont like so much. Therefore Veganista is definitely a HEAVEN! Chic decoration and located in a chic district, lots of different flavours, clear description of the base milk (Oats, Soya, Rice) friendly staff, natural sweetness.. although the price is a bit steep (but actually its ok) I took raspberry, matcha, and oreo. Raspberry is like sorbet, and you can taste the real raspberry seeds inside, the tart and sweet flavours are quite balanced. Oreo is a bit too coconut for me, though it said to be soya based. Matcha is of course a winner! I am a big fan of matcha, and this one is so great! Matcha and soyamilk combination is never wrong. I didnt try the waffle yet, which is gluten-free and seems quite good. All in all i would recommend this shop to anyone (whether vegan or not) in Vienna!
Finally we have an all-vegan ice cream shop in Vienna and I LOOOOVE their ice cream!
You should definitely try it out when you are in Vienna!
