Description

The Peace Torch displayed inside Madal Cafe was carried by runners from Portugal to Vienna in the 2012 Peace Run.

Why It's Interesting

The cafe was established in honor of the founder of the Peace Run, Sri Chinmoy, whose childhood name was Madal. The run and the torch were symbols of international friendship, and Sri Chinmoy spent his life promoting love, spiritual growth, and kindness. There are also a variety of coffees (and a few other beverages and treats) to try.
