The cafeteria is open for everybody from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm on weekdays and from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm on weekends. The cafeteria is the most important casual meeting point for the Vienna BioCenter. The dedicated in-house staff at the cafeteria prepares some 600 full meals each day.
The cafeteria at the IMP offers three different warm meals a day, typically one fish or seafood, one meat and one vegetarian option. This is complemented by a range of salads, snacks such as sandwiches, as well as an assortment of sweets and beverages. In addition to lunch, the cafeteria serves breakfast.
In-house staff – with many cafeteria colleagues being part of the team for years – ensure high quality and a friendly atmosphere. For all meals, the cafeteria staff tries to source local products from known and trusted providers. As a result, the meals on offer have a more personal touch with an international scope than anonymous canteen meals found in other cafeterias.
While the IMP is providing the space for the cafeteria, which is a shared facility by IMP, IMBA and GMI, it is open to anyone and using it as the “focal point” of the Vienna BioCenter is welcome.
A note for canteen guests from outside the Vienna BioCenter: due to increasing waiting times, payment methods are being restricted. Please note that as of January 2019, direct debit cards (Bankomatkarten) are accepted only between 12:45 and 14:00. Thank you for your understanding.
