Despite the torrential rain, two couples in my group graciously invited me to join them for something to eat at Demel. As we walked I was able to enjoy some of the other sites of Vienna, which gave me more of a feel that I had visited the city. When we arrived at Demel, which I did not know of in advance, I immediately knew I was in a little bit of heaven if you love chocolates or pastries. What I didn’t know is that there was an upstairs, passing the show bakery, where a bit of elegance and a bit to eat could also be enjoyed.
I had a wonderful pate, but more importantly coffee served with decadent whipped cream and then a delicious chestnut dessert. It was a real treat.

After our tour I had time to take another stroll through old city before heading back to the ship. I don't know that I will ever be back, but I surprisingly am glad I was here.
