Zum Schwarzen Kameel is an eclectic deli/patisserie/highbrow-wine-bar hybrid but is above all worth a visit for the inventive cuisine in its wood-panelled restaurant upstairs: grilled lobster with truffled pea ragout, Styrian chicken with saffron risotto, or steak stuffed with blue cheese and grappa-soaked raisins served with roast artichokes. Downstairs, the patisserie serves open-faced sandwiches and steaming soups (€1.30 to €6).

Truffle salamis, quail eggs, smoked salmon and cheeses are sold at the deli. Or just drop by for an Achterl (0.125L) of wine from among its 800-strong selection.
