In the spring of 2017, Veganista’s fourth ice cream parlor opened at Taborstrasse 15. Veganista sells only vegan ice cream. There’s no in-store seating, and there are no customer bathrooms. Veganista’s opening hours change throughout the year, and are usually published on their website. On their Facebook site, they also publish which flavors are sold at which locations every day. In the spring of 2017, this branch’s opening hours were 12:00 noon – 10:00 PM, daily. Website and Facebook. (Updated on May 4, 2017).

At the end of April 2016, Veganista, a chain of all-vegan ice cream parlors, opened its 3rd shop in Vienna’s 9th district. I already included basic information about this third location in the book (address, website, contact information, payment options), now I can provide you with additional information. Daily opening hours change frequently, in the winter time, they are only open on Saturdays and Sundays at this location, and were closed on 25. + 26. of December, 2016, as well as on January 1, 2017. Check their Facebook pare for opening hours. There’s no indoor seating, and no Schanigarten (outdoor seating area). There are also no customer bathrooms. (Updated January 1, 2017).

Lafafi is a small bistro in Vienna’s 12th district, which should have been included in the book (it opened in 2015), but it isn’t because I wasn’t aware of its existence. Address: Wurmbgasse 37, 1120 Vienna. Opening Hours: Mondays – Fridays 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM (closed on public holidays). They were also closed from December 24, 2016 – January 1, 2017.

Lafafi offers a so-called Mittagstisch: one kind of soup, and one entrée, one of which is always vegan. (Occasionally they are both vegan, you pay 9.90 Euros for both.) There’s also a “salad of the day” (small: 4.90 Euros; large: 6.90 Euros), and you can usually get one vegan dessert. All the food’s organic, and Lafafi uses primarily whole grains, rice, potatoes/yams, and pasta for its main dishes. (Updated January 1, 2016).
