“Cafe Vile!!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This place is hilarious - it's all about being 'scene' with ageing queens as they enjoy mid afternoon 'kuchen'. The Soanish waiters whizz around as gay horrors pull faces and glance around at the coterie. Dressed to impress in pastel slacks & cashmere sweaters - the idea is to look as if you've just sauntered along from the prom. The cakes on offer are fabulous creations - but may as well be made from polystyrene for all the taste they have. Skip the sweets & have a long, slow stiff one and breathe in the rarified air of stale aramis! Beats any other cabaret you'll see during your visit. One word of warning - this place gets packed and once seated no-one moves - so arrive about 3.30 for the best views!!

“Yummiest cakes in town!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

The only successful business i noticed at the CITA centre, and busiest in the afternoons daily, is Cafe Wien. This is a German cafe decorated in warm white and yellow in a classic style.
Tea is served in fine china with all the trimmimgs (even though the tea itself is not nice as I dont like Lipton yellow label!!).
They have the most delicious cakes, which are sold out by 5pm! This place is packed from 3pm till 6pm , with the gay crowd , who are the saving grace of the survival of this business.
Most people come here straight from the beach, and a table is hard to get after 4.30pm!
A visit is a must if you like your afternoon tea and cake.
