Cake and wine place in Zug

I'm meeting a friend later this evening for wine and cake 9 pm.
I am getting a pass out from my two small kids- not long in Switzerland.
Any suggestions for a venue in the centre of Zug.

Re: Cake and wine place in Zug

Try this: http://www.imhof-zug.ch/

Spago tends to be full of students / young people.

GC is a bit more lively for a quiet drink and cake at that time of night.

Behind GC on poststrasse there is a small wine place, don't know the name, you might wanna check it out before on your way to Imhof.

PS: not sure if any of them serve cake, specially not at that time of night.

I guess that's too obvious

And given that the OPs nationality is Irish, god knows what she's doing drinking wine... Maybe she would like to opt for a pint of Guinness at Mr Pickwick's

11???

Jeez, that is actually taking the pissing. I'd assumed it was still under 10 - and inline with the likes of Kennedys in Zurich (although I couldn't tell you how much a pint is in there now).

Saying that a decent wine will be 7chf per 1dl

Not true.
