In Charles Baudelaire's words,
"there all is beauty and symmetry,
pleasure and calm and luxury"
Viennese coffee houses started serving meals
after the price of coffee beans rose sharply
during Napoleon's 1808 Continental Blockade of England
Who could resist Baked Apple Tiramisu,
the Diglas take of the Italian dessert
composed of layers of sponge cake,
served the Viennese way?
