Iced vs. Eis Kaffee

I recently took my children for ice cream, and since it was a hot day I wanted an iced coffee for myself. I ordered an “iced kaffee” but the man taking my order heard “eis kaffee,” and this is what I received:


Eis Kaffee, less the schlagobers

Eis Kaffee is a popular summertime drink in Vienna. It’s two scoops of vanilla ice cream with a cooled coffee/milk mixture poured over top, usually crowned with massive amounts of whipped cream. (The one in the picture doesn’t have the cream.) I know this sounds magically delicious but I just don’t like this drink. Next time I’ll try asking for “kaffee mit eis wuerfeln” and hope for the best.
