Here are some of my favourite places to eat in Graz


Kunsthaus Cafe is part of the modern art Kunsthaus museum and has a cozy eclectic atmosphere. In spring & summer there is an outdoor patio. For lunch they have a couple of daily specials for €6 – €7,

Die Scherbe has shabby hipster vibe in the trendy Lendplatz area. They have a set menu and several daily specials. In summer they have an outdoor garden seating area.

Cafe Cultural Exchange near Jakominiplatz is run by community focused international team. They offer one daily dish plus wraps and salad. They also have a bike shop and offer fun events often in English such movie evenings and bike repair workshops.

Freiblick Tagescafe on the top floor of the Kastner & Öhler department offers lovely views of the Schlossberg and has a great rooftop terrace in summer (good vantage point for Graz photos).

Le Schnurrbart is a small creperie near Karmeliterplatz. It has a large garden across the street in the summer (good for letting kids run around while you eat).

Das Purberg is next to the Hilmteich and offers stylish dining & cafe in a beautiful old buiding overlooking the lake. It also share a space with the most pretty flower and interior design store – the Lederleitner.


Aiola upstairs on top of Schlossberg next to the clocktower, has a lovely view over the rooftops of Graz. Inside and outside seating with a modern style Austrian cooking.

Glöckl Bräu is where I take all our visitors too. It’s very traditional homestyle cooking in a pretty square right beneath the famous Glockenspiel clock.
