Sugar Bowl, Glass of Water with a Spoon
How to measure Time in Vienna


A Glass of Water
with a spoon,
a silver sugar bowl,
a newspaper -
what time is it?
Hint:
We are talking
Vienna Time!


*

And the correct answer is:

"Coffee Time"
What else?
A perfect cup of
Viennese Mélange -
served and savoured
Sunday morning
at Royal and Imperial Confectioners
CH. DEMEL' S SÖHNE GmbH
Kohlmarkt 14

Now, anybody who'd like to
have a slice of apple strudel?

  6. Why does it ALWAYS look so much more STYLISH to have coffee (and cake) in Vienna then anywhere else?

  7. Funny, reading your comments, I feel like I need to work faster, to have a chance to get a cup of coffee in one of my favorite places! ;-)

  8. So elegant, so civilized, so European. Streudel is fine, but I may hold out for something a little more chocolatey. I'm pretty sure you must have some up your sleeve (figuratively, not literally, speaking)!

    1. Literally or figuratively, I have something up my virtual sleeve, the perfect chocolate treat: Annatorte! :-)
      (I am sitting here, so close and yet so far, highly tempting to take a walk and …… )

  9. I like your invitation and your wonderful photos. First blog I opened today and realize that my morning will not start as elegantly as yours, but I plan to have some good coffee, tho.
