Kaffee und Kuchen
Germans often like to sit down to a cup of strong coffee and a piece of cake mid-afternoon. On Sundays Kaffee und Kuchen usually takes place at home or with friends, but it is common also to go out to a café ( Kaffeehaus or Konditorei), where you first choose a cake from a glass counter before sitting down to order a drink. The atmosphere in such places is generally quiet, with newspapers provided for the use of customers, and although there is a good mix amongst the clientele, the elderly tend to outnumber the young.
