Cafe Wien seems to have developed almost an unwritten rule for guests. Trendy tanned gay men enter via the terrace side and lounge in the sun on the terrace. Evidently, it's important to arrive early and locate carefully in order to optimally see and be seen.
Straight people mostly sit inside unless fairly bold. Older people may cautiously approach from completely the other side of the building to avoid getting too involved with all the trendiness.
In any event, the coffee is not really too bad, and the cakes are indeed good, although very cream-oriented. If you're on a diet, perhaps have the strawberries instead.

The food here is less important to be seen there. The coffee is just ok, but the cakes are good. Very Difficult to get service in the afternoons. A couple more waiter would help. I think a lot of coffee shops have moved on with better machinery for superior coffee, this hasn't. Still one to visit if only to observe the wildlife!

If Tackystan were a country the CITA mall would be its capital. What a horrible place this is. Had hoped for a well brewed cup of coffee and a nice piece of cake in Cafe Wien, the cafe everybody seems to be raving about to recover from the fright, however the coffee tasted sour and there were NO cakes left on a Sunday afternoon at 3. Waiters were snooty and prices were too high. Not a pleasurable experience.

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!!
