Hello and welcome to our cozy corner of the internet! We’re Markus and Hilary, proud parents of two energetic boys, Theodor (two and a half) and Oliver (8 months), living in the beautiful city of Vienna. We love spending quality time with our kids, exploring family-friendly activities, and of course, indulging in our passion for exceptional coffee.
When our eldest, Theodor, was just five and a half months old, he was diagnosed with a severe form of epilepsy. It was a challenging time for our family as Mama and Theodor spent 42 days in the hospital while doctors treated the symptoms and searched for the underlying cause. Amid the turmoil, we found solace in one thing we could control: a quality cup of coffee. Each day, Papa would bring to the hospital coffee from our home barista machine, and every afternoon, we would go on a family walk and savor that coffee together. Now, two years later, Theodor is thriving, and our coffee ritual continues to be an essential part of our daily lives.
Inspired by our love for coffee and the memories we’ve created around it, we decided to start this blog as a way to share our experiences and connect with other families who appreciate the joys of parenting and a good cup of coffee. Here, you’ll find not only reviews of family-friendly coffee shops in Vienna but also tips on parenting, fun activities with kids, and delicious, healthy recipes.
Coffee is more than a drink – it’s a ritual, a moment of respite from our busy lives.very wise person
We believe coffee is more than a drink – it’s a ritual, a moment of respite from our busy lives. Every cup should be a good one, made with love and enjoyed in the company of those who matter most. We are passionate about good quality coffee, whether at a café or at home, and we’re excited to share our love for it with you.
Join us on our journey as we explore the delightful world of coffee and family life in Vienna. We can’t wait to connect with you!
