    Great little place just off Piccadilly as you head towards central library on Mosley Street. We were looking online for afternoon tea and wanted something different than the usual Hilton, Midlands hotel etc that we had previously experienced in the past. This did not disappoint. Portion size was astounding, and the quality exceptional. What made it lovely was that for the cakes you actually got to choose your cake choice from the cake counter which was then presented on your afternoon te tier! I had a malteser cake whilst my son had a cookies and cream cake and both were delicious. The scones were still warm and freshly baked and the choice of sandwiches were great with really good quality meats. All for 12.90 each it was an absolute bargain in the surroundings of a quiet little coffee house, not too busy with friendly staff. Definitely a place to try as they had other vast choices on the menu from breakfasts to coffees and sandwiches etc. Must try!

    Excellent afternoon tea - there was no skimping on the sandwiches: lots of them with very tasty and generous fillings. Warm scones with plenty of clotted cream and a difficult decision to make in choosing which came (from a gorgeous selection) to finish off. Friendly and helpful service too and the price makes it all astoundingly good value.

    Gorgeous cakes, lovely sandwiches we even swapped the sandwiches we didn't like. We took our own presecco and they provided glasses and an ice bucket. We had hot chocolate instead of tea. The staff couldn't do enough for us, the customer service was excellent. Beautiful little coffee house! Afternoon tea was so delicious, so much so it we had to bring some of it home, would definitley recommend it!

    My friends and I fancied a little treat and were looking to book a champagne afternoon tea somewhere in Manchester. Then we found the Vienna Coffee House - where you could bring your own drinks and the afternoon tea itself was very reasonable - so we decided to try it. Very glad we did. We brought our own Prosecco and we were brought champagne glasses and an ice bucket when we sat down. The sandwiches were lovely not to mention plentiful and the cake was just delicious -you can pick which ever you want plus there was a massive yet very light scone with Jam and thick clotted cream. We all ate way to much but was just too good to leave. We practically rolled out the door ( mainly due tot the cake but the Proscecco may have played a part) The service was friendly and efficient. I am not a fan of tea so I had a diet coke ( The irony is not lost me) and they included it in the price. Which is unheard of ! I am always charged extra for a cold drink. I know - its afternoon TEA - why would I go if I don't like tea ? - but lets face it - we go for the cake !
    We had a lovely afternoon without spending a fortune and I would very happily recommend and would definitely return.
