Example text

Open from 8 in the morning to midnight (and beyond), the Kaffeehaus provided a public breakfast room, a place for morning and afternoon coffee and for sociability in the evening. From the 1820s, the Kaffeehäuser were allowed to serve light meals, but these hardly extended beyond sausages. In the Handbuch, the Viennese cafés are described as ‘a venue for comfortable pleasure, a Stelldichein [rendezvous], an informal gathering venue for social and private conversation’,51 allowing the promenade through the city, as it were, to be relocated inside.

56 Yet also in Vienna, the pressure to keep the Kaffeehaus commercially viable eventually had an effect. Early twentieth-century cafés such as Herrenhof, for example, looked suspiciously like a high-style Parisian brasserie with neon lights, brightly lit interiors and Art Deco furniture. 57 Hirschfeld overlooked that the domestic arrangement of the café survived in the less glamorous plebeian establishments in the outer areas of the city, as it did in the workingclass coffee houses of English cities, and its post-1945 successor the neighbourhood café (‘caff’) serving tea, coffee and substantial breakfasts.

Absorbing some of the qualities of the traditional European coffee house and introducing them in generic commercial environments, the coffee lounge effectively combines the features of the shop with those of the 'home away from home’. The spatial arrangements of the lounge allow this ambiguity to be visible; comfortable furniture, leather sofas and fauteuils, low tables or long ones resembling those in seventeenthcentury coffee houses or family dinner tables find themselves next to a large glass counter.
