- -> I am so proud to have been invited to select this month's theme for City Daily Photo's Theme Day Gallery.
May I invite all of you to head on over and see what's going on in coffee places around the world?
Please follow the link -> City Daily Photo Theme Day: Scene from a Coffee House
- -> Café Drechsler Homepage:
"In 2007 the doors of this coffee house jewel along Vienna’s Wienzeile-Street re-opened. After careful remodeling by Conran & Partners, Cafe Drechsler now presents itself as a café in 21st century style.
As such it continues the tradition that began with Engelbert Drechsler’s family in 1919 – to be a traditional meeting place for guests who appreciate typical coffee house specialties, classical Viennese coffee house cuisine with seasonal accents, and a relaxed atmosphere day or night."
