I only had the chocolate-rum ball which name I don't recall. Heavenly.

Große Auswahl an veganen Torten

Die Kuchen und auch das Gebäck sind eine sehr leckere Auswahl an veganen Süßigkeiten.
Die Besitzerin war unglaublich nett und hat eine Beratung zu ihrer Auswahl geliefert. Auch sehr leckeres Kaffee.

Pros: Die große Auswahl, Kaffee mit Milchalternativen ohne Aufpreis, Selbstgemacht

Extensive Range, but a Touch Underwhelming

I was extremely excited to see what was on offer in here and when I poked my head in I was almost giddy with the slight of so many vegan sweet treats!
After much deliberation, I plumped for the apple strudel, the carrot torte and the walnut cake. While the pastry on the strudel was superb, the filling left a little to be desired and the carrot torte was a fabulous texture but the flavour was slightly overpowered by the lemon icing. The best of the bunch was certainly the walnut cake which had an excellent cake to cream ratio. All in all, tasty, but not as good as I had hoped.

Too many great looking cakes for a single visit

We had the Mozarttorte, the sugar-free chocolate cake, a Punschkrapferl, a Kipferl, and an Apfelstrudel (and took two Hörnchen to go).
Everything was great and if we lived thereabouts, we'd have a chance to eat our way through the entire offer but, alas, it wasn't meant to be.

Pros: Great baked goods, Very nice proprietor

Vegan Apfelstrudel - wow! Just like how my grandma used to make it. Only vegan!

Love this traditional bakery and it’s all vegan. Super cute atmosphere and delicious cakes and pies ♥️ great recommendation when in Vienna!
The vegan Apfelstrudel tastes super amazing!

Cutest bakery

Nice range of vegan cakes and drinks that are available to take away and I was served by the sweetest lady. Very annoyed at myself for only visiting this place on my last night and it was only 2 mins from my hotel 😩😩😩

Yummy vegan cakes

Omas Backstube has a reeaally good selection of vegan cakes and pastrys, we had the walnut cake which was super delicious. I'm only giving it four stars because it's quite expensive (5€ for a rather small piece of cake).

Pros: All vegan cakes and pastrys, Nice staff, Cute space in nice location

Cons: Rather expensive

Good cakes

We had the strawberry chocolate cake and strawberry cheesecake (no sugar). The latter tasted fresh and light, so very recommended. The chocolate dough of the other one was a bit dry for our taste, so not the best we've had in Vienna, but the strawberry part was delicious. Indoor cafe only seats around 3 people.

Delicious cakes

The cakes were really tasty - one of the things we liked best were lemon cake and punch cake. The staff was really nice. It had only one con - there were only two seats, so we choosed take away order.

Köstliche Torten

Das kleine Café bietet eine Auswahl an wechselnden Torten und Gebäck. Leider gibt es nur wenig Sitzplätze, ein Besuch ist der Laden aber auf jeden Fall wert. Wir kommen bei unserer nächsten Wien-Reise gerne wieder.

Coffee can be made with regular milk, so not 100% vegan cafe

Amazing cakes and as Norwegians we found the cakes to be cheap, at least not expensive. We are used to vegan cake to cost around 6 euros per slice in Norway. When I ordered the cappuccino, she asked me if I wanted regular milk or oatmilk, so it seems like the coffee is not always made vegan, but nothing to complain about - just nice to be aware of it. We could also pay with bank card.

great cakes

So the cakes here are a bit expensive, but they are really good. Since going vegan I missed sometimes having a cake with whipped cream/ lot of cream, but here you have a lot of cakes like these. They are not overly sweet which is also great, as cakes in Vienna tend to be too much for me.

Pros: great cakes, all vegan, lots of choice

Cons: none, they even deliver

Gute Torten

Ich habe schon mehrmals hier Torte gekauft. Geschmacklich gut, aber nicht außergewöhnlich. Dafür finde ich es zu teuer.

Great variety of vegan cakes and everything looks so tasty. Black Forest cake, raspberry cheesecake and coffee were really delicious. Outdoor seating is quite small and besides a busy road.

Pros: very friendly staff

Currently living almost next door to this place and that’s dangerous! Picked up the chocolate cake and black forest cake and wow, absolutely loved them. My husband is German and cake is in his DNA but I rarely bake, so this is perfect for us. Place is tiny but there are a few seats to stay and eat in but we choose to take home and make a nice tea and coffee to relax and eat the cakes slowly and indulgently. You can also order whole cakes and tailor them to your needs as gluten free / sugar free if you wish. Friendly staff each time I’ve been in and you can see and taste the care and attention that goes into making these cakes. There are also some breads and other baked goods including gluten free.

Pros: Fully vegan bakery and even some gluten free, Nice variety of beautiful looking cakes, Perfect level of sweetness for our taste

Cons: Not much seating so more a shop to take away

Good place for vegan cake

Tiny bakery offering a lot of different vegan cakes and pastries, some more expensive, some less. They also sell bread but stick to the cake ... also be warned that it has basically no seating so take-away only!
I've tried many cakes from Oma's Backstube and I always enjoy them, you can also order whole cakes for a party etc. Staff is usually friendly and helpful. Sadly they do not accept card, cash only. Make sure to come by early because sometimes they're sold out quickly.

Pros: huge variety of plant based cake

Cons: Partly overpriced, no seating, cash only
