Kaffeehauser in Wien

It is completely normal for a customer to linger alone for hours and study the omnipresent newspaper. Along with coffee, the waiter will serve an obligatory glass of cold tap water and during a long stay will often bring additional water unrequested, with the idea being that you are a guest who should feel welcomed and not pressured to leave for another patron.

I received this postcard from Marcie.
What's the great moment in coffee house is sipping the coffee while writing on the postcards.

Oh, if only that postcard came with a piece of Kuchen, with the obligatory Schlag on top. Sigh. Wish I were there.
