Delighted with this vegan lunch spot

Cozy vegan diner with daily specials. Had a pumpkin soup with dumpling that was well seasoned and with a taste of fresh parsley. Partner chose daily sandwich special with vegan schnitzel and a side of colourful coleslaw. Nice zing in the mayo. Local light beer and cappuccinos. All yummy.

Pros: Super friendly service , Small space a reprieve from busy street , Option of indoor or outdoor seating

Cons: No

Cute little cafe

Tasty food. Friendly staff. On lunch menu they have a soup of the day, sandwich of the day, plate of the day and a large tofu salad. We tried soup, sandwich and salad. All three were of good quality served with home made nut-seed bread. Only accepts cash.

No pictures, please?!?

A very small, but grand hospitality from the staff. Denise and Sara where more than happy to take care of our food needs. We ate with delight and got drinks. A small creature flew in to Claudia’s drink, which was 2/3rd empty, but got replaced with a full new drink, without hesitation. No pictures is our own fault, we forgot to take any, due to the new people we met, the friendly and chatty staff, and nice conversations they brought.

Tasty but limited menu options

We ordered a spinach soup that came with quite a small piece of seed bread and a burger (served in focaccia-type bread) with a side salad. There was only a salad and special of the day available to choose from and two cakes (one raw). I thought the breakfast menu was also available but was told that was only on the weekend. While the food tasted quite good, the menu was very small and there were actually more drinks than food available. Given there was little to choose from, it was also a bit surprising that the food took awhile to come out.

It's a good place, but I wished for more options.

Top in Salzburg

Uns hat es hier sehr gut gefallen. Das Ambiente ist großartig familiär, gemütlich, alles super.
Die Speisekarte ist klein gehalten, wir haben das Tagesessen und das Sandwich des Tages gegessen. Geschmacklich war es super. Auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert!
Bargeld dabei haben!

Just okay

I got the soup of the day for a quick lunch. It was a beetroot soup that didn't taste of much. The menu didn't have a huge variety of options, but at least it was fully vegan.

wonderful place!

Update May 2023:
Can’t believe it took me this long to come back!

Again, lovely service! Place was busy so some things took a little longer.
Tasty drinks and delicious french toast!

highly recommended!

May 2017:
visited with a friend - left satisfied and will definitely be back!
their menu isn't big but everything sounds delicious. i LOVE that they have daily/monthly changing options - which makes it easy to come back.
i had some filled zucchini (daily special) which was nice but could have easily dealt with a bit more flavour (a lemon to squeeze on top or some chilli would have made a huge difference), salad was really nice. my friend had a sandwich with fish fingers (monthly special) and she was head over heels! i tried it and it surely was delicious! they made it from white beans not soy/tofu which is a nice change and oh so healthy!!

the drink menu is really nice, too! they offer their own sirups and lemonades that are unusual in salzburg :)

the service was excellent! the lady was just so very nice and willing to answer any questions!
can't wait to go back and try their cakes!

Nice place for small hunger

I stopped by in GustaV for a small bite and for sth to drink, ended up ordering vegan smoothie and vegan cheesecake. Both were super tasty and not too sweet. I saw other people ordering salads, soups, sandwiches. I would recommend coming here for a brunch or desserts, rather than for a bigger dinner 🌱

Pros: Tasty desserts, Friendly atmosphere

Cons: Cash only

Good food, but..?!

We went to GustaV twice this month and experienced two disappointments. The first time the waitress told us that we can only pay cash. I don’t understand why some restaurants don’t add the 3% credit card fee on top of their prices... makes the lives of everyone easier!— anyway, the lady told us to go to this ATM a block away. Later I saw that I had to pay $10 in fees. To get 50€. Pretty disappointing.

But the food was so good, we said we’re gonna try it again... this time to go. So we bought their sandwich of the month twice but this time, they charged us the full price 12€ for a relatively small sandwich / gyros and didn’t give us the side salad!

I’m not sure why but that wasn’t very professional... and kind of expensive on top. Sad to say, but we won’t go there a third time.

Pros: Great food, Delicious dessert

Cons: Expensive, Cash only, Not always friendly

Homey and delicious

Tiny restaurant with delicious homey soup. The menu changes daily, so what you will find is always a surprise.
When I stopped by I had a delicious parsnip and cabbage cream as well as a large and very fresh salad. Both dishes were tasty and made with high quality ingredients. I especially enjoyed the warm cashew cheese that came in the salad.
Service is very friendly, but the place is busy and getting a seat during the lunch rush could be hard. Book in advance or be ready to wait. Also, it’s cash only.
Overall, it’s very much worth a stop.

Pros: Homey, Tasty food, Friendly service

Cons: Cash only , Busy

Delicious dinner

They just reopened yesterday after having a break so I booked for 6pm. When we arrived we were seated next to the window which was nice.

They had a dish of the day which had sold out unfortunately but they did have a warm sandwich. I also ordered the parsnip and carrot soup to start. This was served in a huge bowl and was really tasty. Next the warm sandwich came out and it was served with a salad.

The serving was huge and it had onion jam and pumpkin schnitzel in the middle. The sandwich was so tasty and filling. I particularly liked the onion jam and the fact it was warm.

I was too full to try the cake unfortunately.

The people were so lovely and they explained everything to us in English. Cash only (again seems to be a thing in Austria)
