If you give Virgil a try, let me know how it goes.
The REST layer is pretty solid, but the gui is just a PoC which makes it easy to see what's in the CFs during development/testing.  
(It's only a couple hundred lines of ExtJS code built on the REST layer)

We had plans to add CQL to the gui for CRUD, but never got around to it.

If you want a REST interface and a GUI then Virgil may be interesting.  I just came across it and haven't tried it myself yet.

I made some updates to a cassandra-gui project I found, which seemed to be stuck at version 0.7, and posted to github:  https://github.com/libjack/cassandra-gui 

Besides updating to work with version 1.0+, main improvements I added were to obey validation types, including column metadata, when displaying or accepting data. This includes support for Composite types, both keys and columns.

I often create CF with non string keys, columns, values, and especially Composite types... And I need a tool to browse/verify and then add/edit test data, and this works quite well for me.
