Café Maldaner

First of all - sorry for the reflections in the window - I'm still trying to figure out how to avoid them...

This is one of the oldest (if not THE oldest) "Kaffeehaus" in Wiesbaden, founded 1859. I just love their sense of decoration - a bit old style but stylish and very "gemütlich" (cozy/comfortable). I think you can get that feeling from their window decoration.

Please click on the image for the enlargement to better see the details!

Gemutlich alright :-) that's interesting, is it still open for public? Do people have to dress up like that to enter? ;-) what about the waiters/waitresses...do they dress up like the epoch then? Have you been there yourself? How's the tea? or is it becoming a very touristic destination?

Try a polarizing filter to get rid of window reflections. I used to love reflections: they added a transparant layer to the photograph and gave a context to the window display. (In other words, if you can't beat them, join them! Chuckle.)

I am happy to be corrected by others. Cheers - Brian.

great shot Nicola. I never saw such a window display for a coffee place. Looks both typical and cosy ;) how's the coffee inside though ? Does it taste as good as is their decoration ?

I've found another blog that has a photo of the inside of the cafe:

It's still open for public and people of all ages go there. They serve very good coffee and tea and also have a good selection of cakes...

Thanks for your comments!
And thanks briang for the tip about the reflections!! I'll try it out.
