First Review by CeciliaTegner

Five stars if it was fully vegan - Edit

We had the doner, the dumplings (Geröstete Knödel, which I did not see in their online menu); and the Topfentorte as dessert.
Everything was delicious. Special mention to the dumplings.

The staff was friendly, and the place had a nice vibe too.

We found out that they offer cow's milk as an option for the coffee. So, unfortunately, the cafe is not 100% vegan.
What a bummer! How difficult is not to serve cow's milk for coffee, when all your eating/dessert menu is vegan?

Hopefully they'll reconsider. :)

Pros: yummy food, friendly staff, nice vibe

Cons: not all vegan

Get the tofu grilled sandwich - Edit

I love the Harvest I've eaten here a couple of times - I got the tofu grilled sandwich a number of times and loved it really tasty, the lentil dahl is a good dish as well.
I'd like to point out how cute this little restaurant is, there's such a homely feeling to the place the layout is fabulous really nice seating. During the summer they have outdoor seating which for me is a plus.

Pros: Cute Seating/Layout, Outdoor seating, Friendly staff

Cons: Pricey

great brunch! - Edit

I went to the brunch on sunday at 1 o‘clock and every table was taken. So, if you want to go there for brunch, call in advance for reservation. The food was great! I nearly tried everything and everything was delicious. I loved it so much that I even ate to much and got a little belly ache :D. In the first place I thought that 16,60€ for brunch (without even one drink) is quite expensive but it was totally worth it! :)

Buffet and best soup ever - Edit

There were many things in the buffet, lots of tofu etc. On that day, they had chestnut soup and it was really delicious and creamy. We took hummus for take-away, it was good in the beginning but the more we ate, the more salty it was. Tho it depends on each persons taste.

Price was a bith higher and portions of dishes on the menu were too small - definetely not enough to make you full. Another disadvantage is that you can take only one plate or bowl. If you want to eat more, you would have to pay for buffet again.

Pros: Tasty, Cosy indoor, Kind stuff

Cons: Only cash, Small portions, One plate buffet

Fantastic with a great brunch - Edit

We came here for brunch on a Saturday morning and were really surprised with the variety and quality of all the dishes on offer. Options range from breakfast foods (bread with various spreads, muesli, yogurt etc...) to several international savory dishes (samosas, rice, spinach, hummus, soup etc...).
It costs around €16 per person, so not the cheapest option, but Vienna isn't the cheapest city, and you can eat as much as you like.
The atmosphere was great and the staff are very friendly, helpful, and speak perfect English.
Would definitely come again if I found myself in Vienna again.

Pros: Delicious food, Lovely staff, Great atmosphere

I had lentils with smoked tofu (the tofu tasted like bacon) , salad, and hummus with bread. Yum! Prices not bad.

Pros: Decor was cozy, Menu was extensive & not too expensive, Server spoke English & was very friendly

Cons: Lighting a bit too dim

Great! - Edit

Nice cozy cafe/restaurant. Lunch buffet was delicious. A bit pricey if you just want a snack but if you are really hungry, that's a very good deal. Stuff is friendly and helpful, speaks English. They take cards but don't accept Visa though, so prepare cash.

Cons: Expensive

Good option if you're in the area - Edit

Harvest Cafe Bistrot offers a homey cafe atmosphere and tasty eats, with a focus on regional comfort food. There were several appealing vegan options, including snacks, meals, and desserts.

I only wish they offered fresh-squeezed juices.

Service was warm and helpful.

brunch - Edit

You should be hungry if you go to the brunch, it costs 16.60 euro. I got a green tea which was not included, so I ended up paying north of 20 euro for a small plate of food and a bowl of fruit/vegan yogurt along with the tea. I also perceived the food (as is usually the case in buffet layouts, even vegan ones) to be not particularly healthy or tasty. That said, it's a vegan buffet and is probably a bargain if you're really hungry.

The buffet! - Edit

We had the weekend brunch buffet. Lots of delicious choices - vegan buffets are always a treat! I wasn't sure what I was eating, some of the time, but it was great knowing I didn't need to check ingredients, and everything was delicious. Make sure you book, as it's VERY popular!

Pros: Good range of dishes, Nice local wine, Pretty decor

Cons: Very busy, so a tad cramped and rushed.

Pros: Goulash, Cheeseburger, Tiramisu

Cons: Only one waitress so be prepared to wait, I didn't really like the carrot cake but I thi
