The myth of the coffee house is very typical of Austria - you associate coffee houses with coziness, people reading newspapers and waiters who look like remnants of the time when Austria was still a monarchy.

The story goes that coffee was first brought to Vienna by the invading Turkish army in the late 17th century
When they withdrew from the city, they left behind several sacks of coffee beans.

The Viennese found they liked the drink, and they built around it a whole way of life.

As the Austrian poet Kurt Tucholsky said:a coffee house is a place where you feel at home, even though you're not at home

as always thanks 4 looking

Not an easy job to get three fish-eye shots to harmonise but the angles here bounce off each other beautifully - the effect is very dynamic coffee. Which is an odd thought. Love the glow, and the shadows. Black coffee tones plus caramel and butter...
