Aligned Vienna

On a trip to Vienna in September 2018, I came across a few great little places for real food and other aligned finds. My friend and yoga teacher Anja Ruebner of Inspiring Flow Yoga is a local and offers up suggestions and new finds as she comes across them too. Here we start with my favourite street in Vienna: Kettenbruckengasse.

Gertrude Henzl, the owner of this gorgeous store, heads out to forage each morning and then spends the day in her store creating different culinary delights from her finds. She also runs foraging classes in the summer.

Mid Century Shop.JPG

Perhaps not directly wellbeing-related, but I love any place that refurbishes and up-cycles as opposed to producing new stuff. This store is full of great mid-century finds.

Other Locations

Babette’s

Herb Shop.JPG
Herb shop lunch.JPG

Herb and spice specialty store with lots of great single herbs and spices and many blends, along with a great variety of cookbooks (in German, just a couple in English). Some of their spices are organic and all are ethically sourced and they work directly with cooperatives and growers to ensure this. The Am Hof location (pictured) has a small cafe, and the Freihausviertel location has a kitchen where they run cooking classes (in German).

Simply Raw Bakery

Raw Cafe Cake.JPG

Great selection of vegan, gluten free, and raw fare. Definitely not cheap, but the raw cheesecake I had was delicious and there were plenty of other amazing options for raw desserts.

Schelato

Organic Icecream.JPG

Organic ice cream with a menu that updates with what’s in season and available - ok, I’ll have an ice cream. In this case mine was pesto flavoured, and absolutely delicious. Schelato have two locations. This was the Schieifmuhlgasse one.
