And this is Demel

And this is “Demel” where I learned my trade:
Kohlmarkt 14
A-1010 Vienna
Phone +43/1/535 17 17-0
Fax +43/1/535 17 17-26

Demel’s being the ranking pastry shop in Vienna and Austria, is naturally the world’s champion. A great many good things have come to an end in Vienna, but not Demel’s. It is not simply a pastry shop but the greatest temple of la Grande pâtisserie this side of paradise. It represents the Viennese Lebensart, its manner of living, its sweet way of life. Even Viennese who never go to Demel’s (it is pretty expensive) feel assured by its still being there. They often stop in front of the shop windows and with a warm glow in their hearts wistfully gaze at those sweet masterpieces. The feeling is that, as long Demel’s and the Opera and St. Stephan’s Cathedral stand, everything will be all right.
