Into the Blue Hour at Cafè Menagerie
Coffee at Prince Eugene's Belvedere, anyone?

Café Menagerie
A warm welcome at dusk in one
of the most beautiful summer residences ever built

A luxurious refuge
where hushed voices reign

Outside, down Belvedere hill,
the city dressed for the Blue Hour

One last look, from the outside,
then homewards, under the nascent moon

Good night, moon,
from Vienna!

  6. lovely ... especially that moon ...

  7. I love the warm bright colours:) Yes, one day...

  8. Hi Merisi, I'm catching up on lots of your posts after being away for so long. The beauty of fall in Vienna is a soothing respite from all of the unsettling news that's dominating my social media feeds. The chandelier, the produce, the coffee elsewhere - all of it! Your photos are good for the soul!
