All hail the Cafe Viennoise
I'd written about it once before, and it's become a regular in my life since. In fact, there are few routines more joyous than kababs and other meaty food at Noor Mohammadi on Mohammad Ali Road, followed by Cafe Viennoise at Hotel Marine Plaza on Marine Drive. An espresso with whipped cream and chocolate flakes (ask for extra), it acts as a desert for the first third of its immensely pleasure-inducing life, before the strong coffee below the chocolate flakes and the cream takes over, and over, and over. Sleep doesn't come easy, but conversation is good.
