Viennese Coffee Melange
Served with a glass of water and a rose
Westautobahn exit "Wien-Auhof"
Vetrine filled with sweet Temptations
Lest you think there's only good coffee at McCafés in Austria!
I hear the macarons are brought in from France, and trust me,
they are delicious ;-)

Merisi's McCafé visits since 2010
The coffee does look GOOD!ReplyDelete
And it tastes good, too! ;-)Delete
It's comforting when you are on the road and KNOW were to get a good cup of joe.
I am getting fatter only looking at these...ReplyDelete
I only LOOKED while holding on to my coffee. ;-)Delete
Love your TAKE on a cup of CAFE!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Contessa! :-)Delete
Delicious coffee and a rose as well!!! Doesn't get any better!! Wish I were there this morning!! Great captures, Merisi, as always!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!ReplyDelete
Proof that McDonald's understand the European coffee market! ;-)Delete
Unfortunately, during my last road trips in the USA, the McCafes there were disappointing. All they offered were coffee-flavored sugar and fat drinks. I tried one, just coffee, and it did not taste like espresso at all (to say it nicely).
What a very "dangerous" place! :-))) Super shots.ReplyDelete
Indeed. ;-) I managed to only snap pictures, miracolosamente.Delete
That was my phone camera, I edited the post to state that. Sorry!
Great color contrast! I feel like I'm there.ReplyDelete
The Formica table was a bit bland, so I put the coffee on one of the comfortable and colourful chairs. :-)
I think one of each of those temptations would suit me.ReplyDelete
One of each? Should I worry, William? ;-)Delete
You would post this just as I am in the middle of a diet restricting carbohydrates! I have lost 25 pounds and do not know how to stop. Thanks for visiting my blog and please see my response to your question about vaccinations in my "Finally Married to a Birder" tab.ReplyDelete
*smile* I empathize - I skipped the pastries, had only coffee. ;-)Delete
Thank you for answering my question about vaccinations, very helpful!
Merisi, I did a bit of a double take as I looked at these photographs. Yes, what you found at the McCafe is so very different from what I have seen (but not sipped) at the venu at my Broadway corner.ReplyDelete
It is really amazing how different "the same" can be, isn't it?Delete
I imagine most Americans would welcome espresso coffee on the road as good as the one McDonald's manages to offer in Austria!
Here's another little local NYC McD note for you, Merisi. My "local" was the site of a large demonstration yesterday, re raising the minimum wage...lots of TV coverage, from all the sound trucks and police cars I saw at my corner.Delete
I promise to ask my old time McD counter buddy about the effect of all that publicity when next I order from her my usual double cheesburger to go.
Please don't be shocked. xo
It would be interesting to see a wage and cost of living comparison between New York City and Vienna. A living wage, I'd like to know.Delete
Another interesting fact: McD is very good at recycling here. They take your tray and sort the refuse immediately. I don't know how much to believe their advertising, but they insist on, for example, using only Austrian beef and potatoes. Something about being under the spotlight, I'd venture to say.
Looking forward to hear what your friend says! Btw, lunch counter evokes not only historic connotations, but also old-style New York delis.
McCafe uses "real" cups and plates, even cutlery. Paper, no styrofoam, for to-go orders. ;-)Delete
All very interesting, Merisi. Vienna has had a good influence on McD traditions. I know that my take out double cheeseburgers are wrapped and packed in paper, so that's all recyclable.Delete
Perhaps I can pursue my interviewing reseach next week. xo
A little push from a small corner of the world, and even giants may move ... ;-)Delete
I am looking forward to hear about your research, Frances!
Have a great start into the new week,
