Sweet City is really sweet. The ambience and food are first rate. A true go-to place for authentic and ecletic creations.

Sweet City Desserts is truly delightful! I really enjoy the kalamansi pie. The service is par excellence, too.

Sweet City Desserts it is for me! I love the assortment of their pastries, esp. their cake/pie--key lime pie (aka kalamansi pie) and cupcake--purple yam. My 8 year old daughter loves their cookies esp. their chocolate chip. This mother-daughter team couldn't ask for anything more from Sweet City!

I've been to Sweet City and found the place pleasing to the eye, the people friendly, and the sweets tasty. I will go there again. I wish they have sandwiches so I can stay longer. The intimate seating is comfortable.

Sweet City Desserts is undoubtedly the best! The best place, the best staff, the best people & the best sweets for your sweet, friends & family! :-). I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Sweet City Desserts! Great place to get quality . . . yummy goodness.

Sweet City Desserts gets my vote! I find their kalamansi pie, ube cupcake and red velvet mousse cake mouth-watering - my three favorites! A good place to hang out for coffee and conversation with friends!

I have not tried Sweet City (although I will after reading all these positive reviews!) but I have always found Cenan's cakes to be excellent (black current and white chocolate, yum!) -- they even impressed my husband's very snooty cousin. Also, their croissants are the best I have had since the last time I was in Paris.

Sweet City Desserts is the best place to have sweets. The Kalamansi Pie is unbelievably delicious. Having coffee and desserts with my barber and exchanging news, views, and reviews, the place is convenient for us residents of McLean which is a neighbor city. But it would still be worth the trip to go and have sweet desserts even for those who live farther. It is always full and completely "desserted". If you don't have it, I am afraid you just don't have it!

Sweet City Desserts gets my vote. Wonderful desserts; relaxed ambiance; solicitous hosts.
Rod Garcia July 09, 2012 at 04:52 PM
Nice place to relax among friends with coffee and pie or something even more decadent! Then we can plan to conquer the world or at least get the next round of sweets.
Justina Mango July 09, 2012 at 09:47 PM
My vote goes to Sweet City Desserts. Their Calamansi Pie and Sans Rival are to die for!

Hi everyone, just a reminder that nominations closed July 9 and voting is now open. Pick your favorite in the poll above! Erica

After reading everyone's comments I tried Sweet City Desserts. I found them to be overpriced and unimpressive. I paid $30 for six little desserts, and my kids only liked two of them enough to finish them. The others they took one taste of and did not want any more. The staff there was really nice and the cakes they had on display were gorgeous, but I doubt I will go there again.

Amelie - try Silva's next to the Virginian. Her desserts are wonderful.

Seems like all the comments are going to Sweet City Desserts but the score says Cenan's getting the votes. What is this Florida? I have just finished going through the rounds of the last three finalists, and I must say that this is going to be a wonderful run for all! I am voting not only for the taste and the quality of the desserts but also the location, the parking, the inside atmosphere of the place, and most importantly, the customer service. From what I have learned, it seems Cenan's is the Patriarch of bakeries and desserts in Vienna, and it does have its roots, culture and loyalty, and some of the best bread I have ever tasted. But the place is not so easy as far as sitting and relaxing and reading your book while enjoying their dessert and drinks. And I think this is where the Patch has made some slight errors in the category of their contest: the three finalists are not really that similar. Therefore it is not really fair to one or the other as to how one cast one's vote. Silva's Patisserie is caught in-between these other two. All of them offers some of the best pastries in Vienna, and maybe even beyond. But between the three of them, it is quite disheartening to have to vote which one is better. Sweet City Desserts remind of my younger days in Noe Valley, San Francisco. It is the kind of place I hanged out quite a lot on weekends, and a good pastry with great coffee will readily do it for me. All of them are gems!

Totally enjoy popping into Cenan's for a baguette when heading home, and picking up a tasty cinnamon bun for breakfast.
Laura B. July 31, 2012 at 01:43 PM
Marzipan lovers take note - Silva's is the best in the whole area. If you have never tried marzipan that isn't months old and shipped from overseas, you haven't really tried marzipan. It is beautiful too!
Amelie Krikorian August 13, 2012 at 01:42 AM
Thanks, Kim, I will. I have to admit to having a serious sweet tooth thanks to my French ancestry!
e de la rosa August 16, 2012 at 07:55 AM
E. de la Rosa Sweet City Desserts is certainly the first best bakery in Vienna in the categories of quality desserts, ambiance, and pricing. This place is a great asset to the city.
Michael Paraiso August 17, 2012 at 03:19 PM
My vote goes to Sweet City Desserts, love the Sans Rival and Kalamansi pie and also you have to try their Green Tea ice cream sandwich.
Janis Reyes August 17, 2012 at 03:35 PM
