The answer to this question is very simple. It stands out because social life takes place in it. The Vienna Café is a place where individuals get together to talk about their dreams, to share ideas with each other, to compose masterpieces, or to simply sit and watch in peace as a colorful life unfolds before their eyes. With just one cup of coffee, traditionally served on a silver tray with a glass of water, a visit to the cafe can take hours and hours without ordering anything else at all. You can feel at home in a Viennese café. And it is in such a stunning space, full of history, emotions and life, that poetry comes to life.

Cup of coffee
“I heard quiet footsteps on the stairs. The mother came; her feet were slow and secure, carrying a cup of coffee in her hand. Now I remember she was never as beautiful as she was at that moment. Through the door shone a slanting beam of the midday sun, straight into the mother’s eyes; they were greater and purer, all the light of heaven reflected from them, all the heavenly gentleness and love. Her lips smiled like a child bringing a happy gift. “
