Coffee or Tea?
I had Viennese Coffee Melange,
with a slice of Linzer Torte

Toasted almonds, finely ground,
with a touch cloves and lemon zest,
and a thick layer of finest rasperry jam

    1. Actually, no, but worth to deviate a bit from being a paragon of virtue (talking of myself here). ;-)

      I am thinking of baking it, just to sniff on it, you know. And take pictures, of course. I could then mail it on to Paris. You still at your old address, aren't you? ;-)

  8. Pretty in red! That's quite a spectacular room. My mouth is watering for a piece of that linzer torte.

  9. I like the flower, the bright color and the cake looks nice too.......
    We who follow your blog will have difficulties in choosing where to go for coffee and cake. I have to make my top-10 list ready.... just in case:)

  10. Quel superbe gâteau, il est très appétissant !!!

  11. That torte would greatly appeal to me!

  12. Ahh how sweet it was.
    Greetings from Tegel Airport, Berlin, where I'm having a "dinner" of a banana, nuts, and chestnuts bought in your Naschmarkt.
