Café-Konditorei Zauner in Bad Ischl
Dreaming of drinking Coffee elsewhere

Waking up
300 km from where
you'd thought you'd be
the evening before

The morning sweetened
with rock candy
and brightened by sunshine

A pot of Earl Grey
and what is - for my taste -
the best croissant
in the whole wide world,
Zauner's Ischler Kipferl:
Golden buttery brioche layers
rolled with roasted ground hazelnuts.
Austrian pâtissiers are masters at
this kind of pastry,
Zauner's creation
is one of the best I have ever tasted

Dear Readers,
a repost, and I hope you won't mind, sitting down again,
in this beautiful place, and letting time slip by without looking at the clock.
I repost this particular post because lately I have been particularly nostalgic for a morning visit to Zauner's in Bad Ischl.
I even contemplated getting into the car.
After all, Bad Ischl is but a three hours drive away. ;-)
A wonderful day to all of you, and thank you for taking
this imaginary trip down memory lane with me.


  1. The croissant looks tasty. I really like that statue!

  2. How much weight have you put on since moving to VIENNA???

  3. A great start to your day :) The statue is very impressive.

  4. Always happy to take an imaginary trip with you, Merisi, especially for a croissant and coffee!

  5. Merisi, whenever you would like to take us to this special place, and let us share your table, I will be grateful.

    What a delightful way to begin one's day. xo

  6. A special place, a special coffee, a special table...
    Love from Titti

  7. Very elegant! Nice sculpture too.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
