Vienna’s 15 Best Bakeries! (Kosher & More)

 

Who can resist a slice of fresh-from-the-oven bread?

Here’s an ordered list of Vienna’s finest bread bakers. There’s even a kosher one in the section “worth a detour”, plus other kosher possibilities listed at the end.

If you’re looking to make kosher bread at home, try my delicious recipe for Challah or the simple no-knead bread.

Vienna’s Very Best Bakeries

Paremi (Bakery - Pastry Shop - Café)
Paremi (Bakery – Pastry Shop – Café)
  • PAREMI — Possibly Vienna’s best bakery (and an equally excellent pastry shop), this one is run by a French newcomer and located in the city’s oldest street, which coincidentally happens to be related to the profession. Nothing in Vienna comes even close to their “Viennoiseries” (croissants etc.): Bäckerstraße 10 (1010 Wien).
  • FELZL The pioneer of Austria’s new, hip bakers.
    Branches: Schottentor: Helferstorferstrasse 2 (1010 Wien) | Karmelitermarkt: Leopoldsgasse 43 (1020 Wien) | Lerchenfelderstraße 99-101 (1070 Wien) | Kaiserstraße 51 (1070 Wien) | Pilgramgasse 24 (1050 Wien)
    Bread automat (365 days 8pm-6am): Schottenfeldgasse 88 (1070 Wien)
  • GRAGGER & CIE — Spiegelgasse 23 (1010 Wien, with wood-fired oven).
    Branches: Vorgartenmarkt Stall 14-15 (1020 Wien, with wood-fired oven) and Siebensterngasse 25 (1070 Wien) | Josefstädter Strasse 52 (1080 Wien)
  • VOLLKORNBÄCKEREI KORNRADLWhole grain bakery: Lerchenfelderstraße 13 (1070 Wien)

Other good bread, not made in Vienna, but sold/baked in Vienna:

  • ÖFFERL —  Likely the best healthy, economicaly responsable and tastiest bakery in Austria: stylish, hearty, and striclty organic bread! Their breads are my absolute favorite: Wollzeile 31 (1010 Wien) | Mariahilfer Strasse 9 (1060 Wien) | Währinger Straße 93 (1180 Wien)
  • JOSEPH BROT The star of Vienna’s bread scene. Tasty bread. Its production facility is located in the Waldviertel region.
    Branches: Naglergasse 9 (1010 Wien) | Albertinaplatz/Führichgasse 6 (1010 Wien) | Landstraßer Hauptstraße 4 (1030 Wien) | Kirchengasse 3 (1979 Wien) | Obkirchergasse 37-39 (1190 Wien)
  • MARTIN AUER — Produced in the Steiermark region.
    Branch in Vienna: Plankengasse 1 (1010 Wien)
  • VOLLKORNBÄCKEREI WALDHERR – A whole grain bakery. Made in the Burgenland region.
    Branch in Vienna: Marc-Aurel-Straße 4 (1010 Wien)
  • GRADWOHL — Also from the Burgenland region.
    Branches in Vienna: Fleischmarkt 20 (1010 Wien) | Naglergasse 3 (1010 Wien) | Naschmarkt 239 (1040 Wien) | Landstrasser Haupstrasse 63 (1030 Wien) | Mariahilfer Strasse 23 (1060 Wien) | Zieglergasse 1 (1070 Wien) | Josefstädter Straße 60 (1080 Wien) | Döblinger Hauptstraße 46 (1190 Wien) | Lainzer Strasse 3-5 (1130 Wien)

Interesting and worth a detour:

  • JOSEF SCHROTT – Founded in 1885, these not-so-stylish shops focus on nothing but bread (definitely not for the chic hipster crowd) by Vienna’s guild master: Mariahilfer Straße 159 (1150 Wien).
    Branches: Meiselmarkt Stall J7 (1150 Wien) | Anschützgasse 40 (1150 Wien) | Webgasse 44 (1060 Wien)
  • GRIMM – Open since 1536 in the same spot: Kurrentgasse 10 (1010 Wien). Their excellent organic sourdough bread Altwiener Hausbrot is also sold at Denn’s Biomarkt
  • OHEL MOSHE – Kosher bakery and pastry shop. Get your authentic Viennese old-school Jewish-rye for your daily deli cravings here: Lilienbrunngasse 18 (1020 Wien)
  • SAHARA – A tucked away little Persian bakery and pastry shop for the lavash addict and his sweet tooth: Sachsenplatz 7 (1200 Wien)
  • TRABZON EKMEK FIRINI – A famous Turkish bakery and pastry shop at the Brunnenmarkt: Brunnengasse 65 (1160 Wien)

  1. Hi Nino! Make sure to check out Stumpf in Döblinger Hauptstraße (1190) if you haven’t yet. Old family bakery with fantastic Waldviertler, Brioche, Mohnflesserl and pastry. All the seasonal stuff and often a bit “irregular”.
