I have been to Cafe Diglas many times. But wait, to which one? There are two Cafe Diglas in the center of Vienna. One is in Wollzeile and the other one is in Fleischmarkt. On this post, I am writing about the cafe Diglas in Wollzeile. If you want to see photos of the one in Fleischmarkt, have a look here.
I remember that I once visited the Cafe Diglas in Wollzeile and I forgot my cell phone on the table. I was somehow lucky because it was late and we were the last customers, so I hoped the waitress would find my cell phone on the table and keep it for me. The following day, I was there when the cafe opened at 08.00. I doubt I slept that night. It is such a headache to lose your cell phone with all the contacts and photos and I didn’t want to go through this situation to recover all my lost data. There was a lady behind the desk who gave me back my cell phone. Happy ending.
I like visiting Cafe Diglas in the morning and every time I have the same problem. It’s difficult to choose which pastry I should take. As soon as I make up my mind, I sit next to a window and stare at the people who pass by. In the afternoon the Cafe is busier than in the morning, around 16.00 – 20.00 and there is a pianist playing piano. Their pastries are delicious, the decoration is lovely and I feel happy when I walk out the door listening to the Italian waiter that I should come back.
