Demel Cherry Strudel and Coffee
Viennese Pastries


Demel's Cherry Strudel
The real thing, made with fresh strudel dough,
baked to perfection several times a day,
and a großer Schwarzer - a double shot of espresso -
served the Viennese way with a glass of water,
topped by a downturned spoon

  2. YUM! the sweetness and bitterness of strudel and espresso combined with the same in the newspaper. Perfect combination for tummy and mind.

    1. Demel's strudels are just sweet enough, mostly a perfectly thin caramelized bottom crust.

    1. You know there are also savory varieties?
      Crawfish, spinach and fromage blanc. Just saying. ;-)
