Old McDonald has a Coffeehouse in Vienna
And he brews a pretty good Viennese Melange

A Viennese Coffee Melange
where you least expect it,
and it is pretty good, too!

  1. And it's NOT in a paper cup!

  2. We stopped at a McCafe once and the sweet kid behind the counter probably spent five minutes making sure the swirly pattern in my cappuccino was perfect...his decision, not my request. But, yes, the coffee was surprisingly good, and in a real cup! Perhaps there is hope for civilization....

    1. Maybe you have to order Coffee Melange, then you get not only really good coffee, but it comes also without complicated designs on top. ;-)

  3. E-I-E-I-Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!

    Yesterday, I had one coffee at Angelina's in Paris while my daughter had their special hot chocolate.
    Earlier in the day, we had visited L'Opéra and seen Eva Besnyö's photo exhibit at "Jeu de Paume". We enjoyed both !!! A great day indeed !!!

    1. What a delightful day, Marie-Noëlle! I'd take Angelina's any day if I had the choice. The same here in Vienna, I chose the traditional coffeehouse whenever I can. I am glad, though, to be able to stop at 7:00 AM at this McCafé just off the bike path along the Vienna River, and wind down, after an hour's bike ride, with a good cup of coffee and a newspaper before I head home.

  4. Do I see a real coffee cup & saucer and a glass, not a cup, of water. I'm jealous. They brew, surprisingly, a very good cup of coffee here in the US.

    1. Yes, china cup and saucer, water glass, even a little tray! ;-)
      Driving down I-95 I had the one or other cup of good coffee at McDonald's, albeit in a paper cup. It was fine, though, after all I wanted to take it out.

    1. I love both coffee and tea, depending on the time of day.

  7. Merisi, I have heard that McD's coffee is good, but have yet to try it myself. I really don't much like drinking coffee from a paper cup, and so rarely, rarely have any coffee "to go."

    Where is the silver tray? Perhaps your cup was served, just this once, on a tray of plastic?

    1. McCafé serves coffee on little plastic trays. One can't have it all, I suppose.

  9. I'd love to sit and relax in this kind of McD serving coffee with a little latte art in a cup, yup I do agree with Sylvia, paper cups is tiring. :(

    1. Does McDonald's even have beer???
      I would not be surprised. ;-)

  11. Now, that would be my type of McDonalds.
    Ceramic cups and glasses and silverware.
    Looks great.

    1. Not only that, Sue: they also have really good French macarons (yes, made in France, I am told, by a French company that also owns the venerable Maison Ladurée)! ;-)

  14. Well,good! And if it's anything like the McDonald's here, it stays hot for hours, the better to enjoy the paper!

  15. Trust me, Sandy, I am not fast food friend, but McCafés do a really fine job.
