Coffee houses in Vienna are an integral part of the culture . The quality and the variety of the coffee, and the pastries, makes Starbucks seem like a drive through.

Here it is about quality, not quantity. The cups are small, but the flavor is robust. There are lots of variations but my favorite is the Wiener Melange – It is kind of like their variation of a cappuccino . It is an espresso with steamed milk and topped with a little foam and sometimes if you are lucky, a bit of real whipped cream.
