I know the grocery stores in Europe aren't like USA (big, large variety) but we will be in Vienna for the month of May 17 and would like to do a fair amount of cooking in the apartment we are staying at. We'd like to stock up with groceries for our stay. We will be very close to St. Peter's Catholic church.
We'd like to know of any larger stores within 15-20 minute walk where there is a larger selection of items including a salad bar or items to make salads. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
PS, is there such a thing as tortillas in Vienna? :) Otherwise we'll miss our breakfast tacos!
There are a few larger grocery stores in and around the downtown core. Google SPAR Gourmet, Billa or Merkur Markt. There are also a lot of smaller corner stores or vegetable stands throughout the city. I would also spend some time at the Naschmarkt. Great place to pick up groceries or prepared food. A fun place I enjoy going to (more to look around rather than to buy stuff) is Julius Meinl am Graben - high end grocery store.

Although I'm American, we stayed in Vienna for 2 mos recently and visit regularly.....the grocery stores are 'ok'.....not the U.S., but better than you'd expect.....if you like to cook, and want to 'stock up' on fresh ingredients there's an excellent daily outdoor 'farmers market' called "Naschmarkt" - in the city center.....great selection of veg/meats/seafood/spices etc.....can find it on google-maps.
