Coffee in Paris
One enchanted Evening

One enchanted Evening
After dinner coffee

La vie en rose
Outside the window

You are in Paris
Listening to French chansons

And then, a Viennese Streetcar
Wooshes by, startling you

You are back in Vienne
Even though, dream or no dream,
Vienna's not out to spoil your evening

  1. A rather different way to serve coffee, but I expect that is a better coffee than we see here.

    1. William,
      in Italy, you can order your espresso in a glass, i.e. "caffé al vetro" - the one in the picture would be caffé al vetro schiumato (espresso topped with milk foam). I have heard that coffee in a glass cools down quicker than in a ceramic cup, which could be a reason it is ordered that way when you enjoy a quick coffee break right at the counter ("al banco") as Italians usually do.

    2. It also look quite nice, I'd add. ;-)

  2. Ah, a fun one for the day and wonderful captures as always, Merisi!! Wish I were there -- Paris or Vienna, I love them both!! Hope you week is going well!!

    1. Thank you, Sylvia! Hope you week's running smoothly, too!

  3. The coffees look rich and brown. . . just the right shade.

  4. Looks a delicious coffee and a great place to hang out

  5. Your coffee shots never tire me. Also love La Vie En Rose. :-)

  6. Love to be there with camera in hand and a cuppa
