  1. What a delicious vision. Wonder what it would be like to just pitch camp at this patisserie for a week and sample everything. Perhaps the doorway could be enlarged during that week to facilitate the exit of my self, enlarged by such a seven-day stay!


    1. Francis, Francis, your daydreams are about to carry you off to unknown realms! ;-)
      On the practical side, I could imagine an hydraulic lift right out those large windows.

  2. what a lovely way to enjoy your pastry .. and what a charming place

    1. An utterly charming place, indeed!
      And their chocolates are out of this world, as I can testify (I recently received a few of them as a gift - they did not survive the evening!)

  3. Oh my goodness, it's probably a good thing that that wonderful place is in Vienna and not close to me.
    Such lovely and charming photos Merisi.

    1. Thank you, Sue!
      Yes, there a days when I am grateful to being desk-bound. ;-)

  4. I think I could be very happy living in Vienna! I want one of those doughnuts, now!

    1. You would not believe that I managed to resist and not devour the donut, would you? (I realized at some point that I simply cannot eat all the food I shoot!)

  5. I am going to have to find a recipe for Vanillekrapken! I can only imagine how wonderful that tastes.

  6. What a wonderful establishment, rich in history!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
