Coffee With Angels
On the Left Bank of the Vienna River


Questions About Angels
"Of all the questions you might want to ask
about angels, the only one you ever hear
is how many can dance on the head of a pin
."
Billy Collins

Have you ever wondered
what angels do

besides giggling
about the utter silliness

of even trying
to stand on a pin?

Thinking about
having a cup of heavenly coffee Melange?
Right down here
in Vienna.


Saturday Morning
at Café Savoy

Savoy opens late
in the afternoon and into
the wee hours of the morning,
except Saturdays, when
you can have your coffee-fix
also in the morning.
Linke Wienzeile
Next to Naschmarkt
6th District

  7. I wonder if the angels ever crave chocolate and abandon their angelfood cake in favor of rich devilsfood!

  8. That's what I call a totally over the top Viennese cafe. Nothing like having a coffee melange in such surreally opulent surroundings.
