Cafe Hawelka 's owner passed away

Jump to last reply

Maybe many Fodorites, who have visited Vienna have also been to Cafe Hawelka, in the Dorotheergasse, next to Graben.
This was my favorite Cafe when i was a student in Vienna, and many memories came back when i saw the report, that Leopold Hawelka, owner of the Cafe passed away yesterday at the age of 100.
Cafe Hawelka was a cafe like no other in Vienna, everybody who has been there, will know what i mean.
Here is a link to the story of this unique Kaffeehaus,
