or a Livio de Marchi sculpture?
or an Italian Cappuccino?
or Café Orlando di Castello?
or an all too clever diversionary tactic
that little Chocolate "ménage à trois"
I had with my coffee?

Yes, that little chocolate thingie really is as small as it looks. Hardly a sin, I'd say. If my memory serves me right, that pastry was not so much on the petit side before a change of ownership this past March. Not complaining, though, I am all for small, but utterly delicious morsels by pattissier Pierre Reboul! :-)ReplyDelete
I wish I could transport myself into any one of these delectable images!ReplyDelete
It could be a VERY LARGE cup though...ReplyDelete
where's the glass of wa wa?
That cafe looks VERY Viennese to me, ahem
Mmmm that looks delicious. I thought the coffee I was drinking at this moment was good ... until I saw yours!ReplyDelete
wouldn't mind to do that myself, again. ;-)
please be assured that there was a glass of water. I have the picture to proof it. ;-)
Jill, I'll take you there on your next visit! xxx

LOve the leaves they put on top. Leaf shapes that is.ReplyDelete
I have a hunch that these elaborate designs were imported from the States.Delete
Not that I know, though. ;-)
Oh to be in this café now, indulging in very tiny sins!ReplyDelete
Catching up with posts - loved your escape on the water which despite the rain looks utterly beautiful.
Thank you, Karen!Delete
Like the lampshades in the cafe.ReplyDelete
they are a light-hearted touch, upside-down, aren't they?
I can't help but thinking of Laura Ashley when I look at the wallpaper and lampshades.
I can't take it any longer! After looking at your photos of cappuccinos, and with my espresso machine in the shop for repairs, I am off to my local coffee house for an espresso con panna. Unfortunately, there will be no Viennese pastries.ReplyDelete
What a good distraction!ReplyDelete
