“Items checked here are done so at your own risk.”
"While the Glory Years may have passed, it is the outside world that has changed and not the Café Hawelka. It still provides a refuge for many artists, writers and musicians"
(From Café Hawelka's website)
"... it must be said that the Viennese coffeehouse is a particular institution which is not comparable to any other in the world. As a matter of fact, it is a democratic club to which admission costs the small price of a cup of coffee. Upon payment of this mite every guest can sit for hours on end, discuss, write, play cards, receive his mail, and, above all, can go through an unlimited number of newspapers and magazines."

Longings for Vienna...
Hello... you have a wonderful blog.ReplyDelete
How I wish I could step into these photographs right now!
It looks like a very atmospheric café!ReplyDelete
I'm back! Another good selection of photos, M.ReplyDelete
I found a patisserie called Viena (yes, one N... Spanish?) in Murcia. I will post the photo soon.
What a fabulous cafe. I'll never go to Vienna again without first printing off every page of your blog before I go!ReplyDelete
Why does EVERWHERE you go make me want to go there?ReplyDelete
Checking in to say hi and do my usual drool over your pictures. I feasted on your flowers the other day...they were so appreciated.ReplyDelete
wish i had never left europe early... :o(ReplyDelete
I can see already your new blog's motto! :-)
Hi, Alison, you are welcome.
It exudes charm, and their coffee is good. :-)
Times goes by so fast!
You already back again, and I am still here. :-) Looking forward to your Viena post!
Thank you, you are so generous!
That's Vienna's fault, she's a witch! *chuckle*
I am so delighted to be able to share these pictures with you. I hope the weather over in your parts of the world has turned friendly again, and you get back to live without this horror.
Well, some things are really nice here, then again, you have this wonderful nature and sea there, back under. :-)
