Andy Warhol stopped by for a cup of his coffee. So did princes, paupers, playwrights, poets and untold thousands for whom a visit to Vienna was unthinkable without a cup of steaming brew served by the bow-tied little man with the perpetual dancing smile.
Leopold Hawelka, whose famous cafe in the Austrian capital is considered an institution by locals and tourists alike, celebrated his 100th birthday Monday amid much fanfare.
"As soon as they saw smoke curling out of the stovepipe they came," Hawelka told The Associated Press in a 2001 interview. "It was a sign that we, at least, had it warm. Some of them sat there the whole day over a glass of water so that they could stay warm."
"It was my living room when I was in Vienna," he said fondly.
