Where to eat and drink well in Vienna on a budget

Hello fellow travelers! 🙂

Living in Vienna, I am always looking for new places to test. I know that for many people Vienna may seem like an expensive city, which is why I want to share with you some hidden gems where you can have breakfast, lunch, drinks and dinner without spending a fortune. I promise, I will not make you eat only sandwiches and hot dogs! Let’s find out together where to eat and drink well in Vienna while spending about 38€ per person.

Breakfast: The classic Sacher from Oberlaa
If you are in Vienna, breakfast can only start with a slice of Sacher. In our opinion, the best is the one in Oberlaa. A slice costs only 5.10€, a very good price compared to historic coffee shops where you might pay almost twice as much.

Lunch: Henry’s Billa Corso Restaurant
For lunch, I’m taking you right near the Cathedral, to the Billa Corso Restaurant called “Henry’s.” Here you can create your own custom bowl, choosing from a wide range of fresh ingredients that change daily. The cost per 100g is €2.49. We spent 16€ for two bowls with basmati rice, vegetables and more, and it was all delicious. Every day the dishes change you will also find starters such as dumplings, fresh salads, and more. You can eat on the restaurant tables, inside or outside, or do as we did and go to the nearby park for a relaxing picnic.

Afternoon Coffee: Caffe Vom See
After lunch, it’s time for a good coffee. I know friends, coffee can be expensive in Vienna, but if you come to See, an espresso costs only €1.50 and cappuccino €3. You can accompany this with a croissant for €1.50. A great coffee break without emptying your wallet!

Aperitif: Spear
For the aperitif, I recommend going to Spear. Here you can enjoy a Negroni and a glass of white wine for only 13€. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Viennese atmosphere before dinner.


Dinner: Everest

We end the day with dinner atEverest, where you can also enjoy delicious vegetarian dishes. We started with two vegetarian samosas for €6.90, followed by a glass of white wine for €4.20. The main course was 12 vegetarian momos dumplings each, costing €11.90.

In total, this day cost us 76.20€ for two.
