Since the current situation doesn’t allow it any other way and we still don’t want to do without cooked food, fried food and rolls from pubs and restaurants in Graz, I’ve been looking around our city over the last few days and found a few fine “take-away” options for every occasion. By the way: Despite the current situation, you can also pay with GrazGutscheine at numerous restaurants.
The small hunger after the big shopping
Graz city centre offers (us) shoppoholics plenty of opportunities, but a shopping trip like this also makes you hungry. Restaurant visits are unfortunately out of the question at the moment – although that’s not quite true. Mangold’s in Griesgasse at least offers the possibility to help yourself to the rich salad and main course buffet!
We grabbed the burger of the week and a big bowl of salad and enjoyed the vegetarian shopping boost right on Mariahilferplatz.
Mangolds – Shop | Wild Café | Buffet, Griesgasse 11, 8020 Graz
Opening hours: Mon – Fri from 11:30 to 14:00
Snacks in the green
The Augarten in Graz is, especially after the opening of the Augarten Bay, the ideal place to be in the city and yet in the green. Whether it’s a little sunbathing on the lawn, a walk through the park or an adventure at the playground – the fresh air certainly makes you hungry (and thirsty). Fortunately, there are a few ways to refill your energy stores here in the park – for example with breads and sandwiches from Frankowitsch. The traditional Graz company recently moved into the former Augartenbuffet and offers a fine selection of snacks and sandwiches to all those seeking relaxation, adventurers, athletes and the hungry.
We couldn’t resist and had all sorts packed and enjoyed them under the warm spring sun in the park.

Opening hours in good weather: Mon – Sun from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Italo feeling for in between or at home
Cosimo and his Tramezzini Manufaktur provide the Italo feeling in Graz’s old town. If a trip to Italy is already out of the question, you’ll get your culinary money’s worth here. The idiosyncratic and creative tramezzini rolls provide a little holiday flair on the palate. The snacks are available individually or in boxes. And if you want to get into the holiday mood, take a bottle of the in-house prosecco with you.
For us, there was the complete programme. 8 varieties of the fluffy rolls plus two extra beef tartare tramezzini for on the go.
Cosimo Tramezzini Manufaktur, Hofgasse 8, 8010 Graz.
Opening hours: Mon – Sat from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Vegan break & brunch
I claim Graz is the brunch capital. Under normal circumstances, especially on weekends, hungry Grazers flock to the restaurants and enjoy breakfast and lunch in one meal. This tradition must of course be continued, in a slightly different but no less tasty way.
We treated ourselves to a full vegan brunch box from Ginko at the weekend and enjoyed it at home with the whole family. Almost like the old days!
Ginko’s delicacies are also available as a take-away buffet in the restaurant on weekdays.
Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.Ginko, Grazbachgasse 33, 8010 Graz
I’m already looking forward to the next report and hope to read you again!
All the best, Manuela from Testesser“
