We went for breakfast, we got eggs and a gf brownie! they have gluten free bread along with all the egg options (omelette scrambled, sunny side up and hard boiled) as well as some other gf options clearly stated on the menu. They have many vegan options as well. The staff is super nice, polite and helpful. Will visit again if we get the chance!

This place is entirely vegetarian and has a lot of vegan as well as GF options. Mostly for breakfast/coffee & cake. I had the French toast which they prepared with GF bread. It was sort of suboptimal because the GF bread was with cumin so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it with a sweet dish. But it was okay.

Update: I have once had a gluten reaction here from breakfast.

I’ve been here several times for lunch and breakfast and always had safe, healthy, delicious experiences. I’m very cautious about cross contamination so I’m sorry for that experience with a breakfast omelette.

Loved this cafe! I ate here twice during my time in Salzburg. First time was for breakfast and I got a yummy vegetable omelette with GF toast and a coffee. Second time was for lunch and I got a delicious vegetarian curry and carrot cake. The food was great and they understood coeliac and took extra care preparing my food to prevent cross contamination. And I felt totally fine after eating here both times. They only take cash though so make sure to bring cash with you. Highly recommend!
