Eating vegan in Styria, Austria
Styria is one of the neighbouring states of Salzburg and home of beautiful scenery. I spent some time there with my dad hiking up majestic mountains like the Dachstein, which was amazing. Most supermarkets even have a vegan section so packing your provisions for your tour is easy. We also found a few places with excellent vegan food and great service. Check them out below.
Artisan CAFE AND BISTRO
Artisan is a lovely small cafe and bistro in Schladming with vegan options. Often frequented by international guests this place has a very personable atmosphere and you're almost feeling as if you're in the owner's living room and kitchen. This is not a place to rush in and get your coffee or take away (even though you can get take away coffee) but a place to find peace and relaxation. The owners are very well travelled themselves and always helpful and up for a good chat. The menu is an eclectic mix of vegan and non-vegan food and the guys there went through a lot of effort to cook a special vegan breakfast and on another occasion dinner for me. I've been coming back for the second year now and will be back next year as well.

verweilzeit CAFE, Restaurant and shop
Verweilzeit is a destination. Holiday apartments, yoga, a shop (a variety of national and international delicatessen) and a vegetarian/vegan bistro.
We had breakfast there and we loved sitting outside looking up mountains, the interior and the lovely and helpful staff. Breakfast was huge with a mix of sweet and savoury dishes (hummus, yoghurt, veggies fruits) and wholesome artisan bread varieties. Very delicious and filling. A great way to start the day, especially when planning to go hiking up the nearby mountains.

Right in the centre of Schladming this hotel is a modern oasis of cool. Combining alpine elements with urban chic, even the most discerning vegan traveller will love it here. Last year we popped by for delicious dinner and this time we had breakfast - as we weren't hotel guests they made an exception and prepared special platters for us. Normally they have a vegan section at the breakfast menu, which is a mix of vegan lunch meats, smoked tofu (which tasted like real bacon), bread spreads, margarine, vegan breads, fruits, yoghurts, etc. All very delicious. But most of all the lovely staff won me over. Genuinely friendly, chirpy and very welcoming.
