Eating and drinking on campus

Whether you want a substantial meal, a snack to go, or the traditional Austrian coffee and cake, you’ll find a suitable place to eat and drink on campus.


The cafeteria offers freshly cooked, well-balanced meals made from local, seasonal ingredients, with a focus on ethnic foods. Tasty and diversified meals, high-quality ingredients, and careful preparation reflect the international diversity and high standards of ISTA. Healthy salads, snacks, or sandwiches are also offered along with small desserts and ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth.
