On the Left Bank of the River Wien
The still sunless river waters
reflect the sun-kissed treetops,
like a promise that the blue morning
will turn into a golden day.
By the River Gate
The grape leaves are already basking
in the early morning sun.
A giant Milk Bottle
shows the Way
to breakfast at
On the Right Bank of the River Wien
The dining room at the Steirereck's "Meierei",
tables ready laid for breakfast.
An Old-Fashioned Milk Bottle
and a small glass vase filled with flowers
set the tone.
Egg in a Glass
Sunshine would taste like this!
Stone-Cooked Alpine Char
with avocado and tomato preserves.
A Cup of Morning Glory Tea,
This breakfast has been
brought to you
from one of Vienna's most beautiful settings
for an early meal.
Both the "Meierei" and the "Steirereck" restaurants,
one downstairs, the other upstairs,
are located above the Right Bank of the river Wien,
in the Stadtpark, a less than 15 minutes walk
from St. Stephan's Cathedral.
Bon appetit! :-)
