When here after a day on the beech. The cake was very average and very overpriced. Nobody speaks everyone just sits there looking pretty and camp. not for me

What a disappointment. This used to be THE place to go after the beach but not any more. The staff (especially the young guy) seem only interested in meeting friends and not really providing the quality of service they used to. One couple sat at a table waited 10 mins, and were refused service by the young guy (who was... More

Like other reviewers I've been coming to Gran Canaria for many years and a stop off after the beach was always Cafe Wien...well not any more. The service was off-hand and in particular from the German waiter was non-existent, he was more interested in talking to his friends than serving. The cakes which make this place an institution ran out... More

The place hasn't changed except the selection and availability of the cakes in the afternoon has deteriorated. This latest visit, in the middle of a very busy pride week, saw the gateaux run out at 3:30 and all cake gone by 4:05pm.... More

One of my favourite cafes anywhere. Some say it is a little tacky but, for me, it is an oasis of civilisation after a day at the beach. The staff are so friendly and the cakes are to die for - quite literally judging by the size of the slices! The best time to go is mid afternoon on a... More

We were told to go here after the beach for cake and coffee as it was THE place to be seen. It is located in the Cita shopping complex which looks like it has closed down and is very run down. When we found it, we got a table and the coffee was nice and the cake looked great but... More

Cafe Wien seems to be a true institution among the gays. It is absolutely packed late afternoon. Cakes are great are fairly inexpensive. It is located on the first floor of a tacky semi abandonned Cita Shopping centre. Now no mater how crowed the place can be the nice lady running the place will not bake more cakes and there... More

Very good looking and polite waiters. Also the cakes. Better share only one with your partner or your mother.
