I’ve been to Vienna a number of times, but last weekend I fell in love all over again. A good friend of mine invited us to meet her at the Museums Quarter for an evening drink and it turned out to be one of the best nights I’ve had in Vienna. As we walked around the corner from our hotel, we walked up some stairs only to find on the other side an enormous courtyard filled with plastic couches, cafes, restaurants, and people relaxing having a drink with their friends. It was perrrffect!
Where I’m from is a land of strip malls and chain restaurants. Now don’t get me wrong, I love where I am from. Florida has tons of great things to offer, many of which you will hear about on this blog…but when I’m in Europe one of my very favorite things is finding a small out of the way cafe with mis-matched comfy furniture and sitting with some friends chatting over coffee and snacks. As I travel around I always look for these great little spots, unfortunately I’ve only just started my blog so my list will start with some in Munich. I’ve found that travel books and internet sites rarely mention these cozy little treasures, so hopefully my list will grow as this blog grows and you can use it to find amazing, out of the way, cafes where ever you are staying!
