Munich Cafes with the best Coffee & Cake

Cafés in Munich – Coffee, Tea, Cake & More

Meet friends for coffee, tea & `Kuchen´ (cake)…  better to share that guilty pleasure.
There are so many cafés in Munich! The cafés I mention below made the list just because we seem to frequent them more often than others.

Coffee, Tea, Cake & More:

Tushita – if you love tea, vegan desserts, cozy little nooks, this café is for you. It can be busy and they don´t take reservations, so try going after the lunch crowd disperses.

Occam Deli – has an amazing array of desserts. Accompanied by a warm beverage and you´re in heaven. Great café for brunch as well!

Café Luitpold – a bit more upscale than most cafés , but it´s a great place to meet with friends and tempt your palate with many of it´s great pastries. Local Tip: Discover a tiny museum hidden above the café one floor up. There are historical facts on the locale and the artists who frequented the establishment since 1888. It is only in German, but it is still fun.

Café Glockenspiel – get a window seat overlooking Marienplatz to see the Glockenspiel (Carillon) in action. With its bells and colorful figures that perform for us daily at 11am, noon and (in summer) 5PM, it´s the best seat in the house.

Café Frischhut – close to the famed Viktualienmarkt and opposite the Schrannenhalle (Prälat-Zistl-Straße 8). This café has been serving fresh Schmalznudeln (sweet donuts) and Rohrnudeln (I like the one with raisins) for years. Most people order to go, as you can tell by the long lines. However, you can walk in, try to find a seat and enjoy your sweets. (No website, but you can find them on Facebook).

What are some of your favorite cafés in Munich? We would love to hear from you.
