Café Sperl in Mariahilf
Grand Viennese Coffee House


Saturday Morning
Coffee served the Viennese way,
on a silvery tray with a glass of water
topped with a downturned spoon


In the quiet of an
early weekend morning


Chacun à son Goût
Some of us would rather
catch another 40 winks!


"... it must be said
that the Viennese coffeehouse
is a particular institution
which is not comparable to any other
in the world..."

Stefan Zweig,
"The World of Yesterday.
Memories of a European"

  1. Great photos as usual. I love in particular the second one not only because the coffee house is wonderful but because it really gives "the quiet, lazy" feeling typical of the weekend

      I love the Sperl, especially when I manage to sneak away from the world for an hour early on a weekend morning.

  4. Merisi, I thought you are an Austrian woman writing in English, but obviously you seem to be an expatriate!? Have you been able to read and understand what I wrote in German? I think so...
    ...because you're living there for several years now in and around Vienna!

    Thanks a lot for your kind comments on some of my posts! All the best from your neighbor country Germany!

    Uwe.
