Cafe Mozart is one of the most ancient Viennese cafes. It opened in 1794 and then, only three years after the death of the great composer, it was not called that yet. But even then it was going to "Bohemia". Good traditions and the "correct" menu were created in 1929 in this place a cafe with a modern name. The most popular cafe gained in the late XIX century, when it became a meeting place for writers, musicians and actors. After World War II, when the center of Vienna for 10 years from 1945 to 1955 turned into a zone of joint occupation of the USSR, the USA, England and France, the famous British journalist and writer Graham Green worked in a cafe. Here he wrote the screenplay for the film "The Third Man", and the cafe appears in the episode of the picture. So, with Green's easy feed, Vienna became a recognizable symbol of various intelligence services of the world during the Cold War. Green himself was a resident of British intelligence since 1940 and was a close friend of Kim Philby, a double agent in Britain and the USSR. Philby died in Moscow and was buried in the Kuntsevo Cemetery. Today, Mozart Cafe serves Graeme Green’s “real” breakfast. It is possible and breakfast scout, but I advise you to do 3 things in a cafe: taste Viennese coffee, sit on a Viennese chair, and look through a Viennese newspaper. Translated with Google Translate
