Seventy two hours in Vienna, what a great idea! The city has so much to offer.
It’s the antithesis of fast food culture, of your name scribbled—and spelled wrong—in sharpie on a takeaway cup, of silent wireless workers lit by the blue glow of laptops. Your coffee arrives on a tray with a little glass of water and a few individually wrapped sugar cubes. No tattoo-covered wait staff here, rather, a neat black apron and white blouse, or a bow tie and waistcoat. There are actual newspapers and old ladies in fur coats, but no wifi. This is the traditional Austrian coffee house and you are here to sit for a while, to get a little newsprint on your fingers and cake crumbs on your napkin, and to enjoy.
