Viennese Coffee Melange, anyone?
The Grumpy Waiter is but a Tall Tale

A cup of coffee
served the Viennese way,
with a glass of water
and a downturned spoon
on a silvery tray

I invite you
to join me, sit down,

a friendly waiter is already
on his way to take your order

Café Hawelka
Dorotheergasse

Almost eight years of drinking coffee in Vienna,
and I have yet to encounter a grumpy Viennese waiter.
