The Truth about Early Birds
Zaunerkipferl for Breakfast

The worms are still sleeping,
the tables not decked,

the Gods are barely blinking
at the early morning sun

and you have to walk
the five minutes to the original location
of Zauner, at Pfarrgasse, and comfort yourself
with coffee melange and an utterly delicious Zaunerkipferl,
a croissant married in pastry heaven with hazelnuts

  1. Early morning, walking the whole five minutes - I imagine the only thing that keeps you going is a mental image of the Zaunerkipferl and a whiff of a freshly ground and brewed coffee.

  2. very pretty indeed...lovely light and shadows

  3. What a splendid way to begin a day. Nature has provided a perfect setting, and some unseen persons have contributed perfect coffee melange and hazelnut pastry and newspaper.



  4. Oh, yes! a splendid way to begin a day indeed!! Doesn't get any better and I have to admit that I'm just a tad envious, Merisi!! Hope the rest of your day is just as good!!
