A Tradition "Wiener Kaffeejause"

The Viennese coffee houses are not only an integral part of Austrian culture but are also recognized UNESCO cultural heritage. More than just a place to get a cup of coffee, the Viennese coffee house serves as a meeting point for the exchange of ideas, opinions and creativity. Following this longstanding Austrian tradition, the Austrian-American Cultural Society together with the Embassy in Washington D.C., hosted a classic "Wiener Kaffeehausjause" with authentic sweets prepared by Austrian chef Wilhelm Jonach on February 17, 2014.
