A coffee roastery with delicatessen is planned, and the opening is set for March.
The Bauer butcher’s shop on Gersthofer Markt will only be open for a few more days. On November 1, the owners, Josef and Eva Bauer, will close the long-established specialty store at number 7-11. Because the two go into retirement. But the premises will not remain empty for long – a successor with a prominent name has been found. But it won’t be a butcher: “We had three applicants, but in the end they all said it was too much work for them,” says Josef Bauer in an interview with KURIER. The 62-year-old took over the butcher’s shop in Gersthof in 2000 from his predecessor, with whom he had worked for many years before that. Bauer has been in the industry since he was 14 years old.
However, meat products will still be available on the premises. A coffee roastery with delicatessen will move in. Behind it is none other than Elisabeth and Markus Schneider-Diglas from the famous Viennese coffee house dynasty. The new establishment will be called “Diglas am Markt”. Early in the morning, they want to sell coffee specialties, Kipferln and other pastries from the in-house bakery across the alley.
During the day, there will be “sustainable food” and a lunch menu. “We are looking forward to enriching the diversity of the Gersthof market,” say the new owners. First, however, the building will have to be remodeled in the coming months. The “Diglas am Markt” is scheduled to open in March 2022. Incidentally, Josef Bauer wants to support his successors: He says he will help establish contacts with suppliers.
