There were many times in my life when I found myself waking up in the morning, only to run like crazy trying to catch the bus to get to work. In the meantime, I missed the simple joy of breakfast. From these not so pleasant experiences, a wish was born: a wish to have more mornings where I can get up with ease, have a shower, do breakfast, check the emails and enjoy a cup of coffee before doing anything else. This is what I would consider, my favorite morning, a morning without stress. In this blog post, I’d like to take you on a visual tour into what one of these favorite mornings would look like. To be honest, my typical mornings in Vienna do not always look like this photo essay…but many are, especially the weekend morning ones.
As you can see, a favorite morning does not necessarily mean it has to involve a three course breakfast. I’m perfectly happy when I have time to simply enjoy my daily morning cup of coffee, fresh fruits, and a croissant. This week, the people at Nespresso sent me their newest coffee creation, Envivo Lungo, to try out. The Envivo Lungo is a high intensity coffee. The long and intense flavor of Nespresso’s newest coffee make it an ideal drink for the morning as it surely will thrill your palate and stir your morning senses. Try it and let me know what you think.♥
Will you come here with me? In Pure Living Bakery. I would like to show you my new discovery. My new discovery couldn’t be more delicious. A place that I could visit day by day. If you come with me, it will be even better and we might be lucky enough to meet Blue again. Blue is big, he has blue eyes, white soft hair and he likes to play with you (see photos below). You‘ll see, it is going to be a blast!
What I ordered: A dark orange chocolate, the Oreo cake, the banana chocolate cake, one bagel with rucola, cheese and ham! Mahlzeit (good appetite in German)!

Every old coffee house in Vienna has a story. Did you know that this coffeehouse is where the love story between Leopold and Josefine took place? Leopold began to work in the Deierl restaurant, where he met Josefine. They got married and they later opened Café Hawelka in Dorotheergasse.
One more exciting thing to mention is that there is no menu; say no to a usual menu made of paper which list all the desserts and drinks! What you can order is written on a blackboard which hangs on the wall.
Tip: Go after 20.00 and order some Buchteln, sweet rolls filled with jam. You will avoid the crowd, you will have the chance to taste some delicious Buchteln and if you are lucky enough, you are going to meet happy girls sitting alone and writing poems in a dark artistic atmosphere which remains the same since Hawelka took over the cafe in 1939 . Until 2011 you could meet Leopold sitting at its entrance but unfortunately not any more. But you can still smell the aroma of Buchteln, a culinary delight, that Josefine used to bake.
