My friend and I were looking for some eggs Benedict because they are not very easy to find in Germany. We stumbled upon Cafe Luitpold and it was fantastic! The service was great and the food was even better. The waiter told us that it is actually the oldest coffee shop in Munich and it's named after King Luitpold. We... More

This restaurant stood out when looking for a place to eat breakfast and happy we went. The eggs benedict are to die for and the side of yogurt and fruit was a generous portion! The waiter was a bit preoccupied but other than that the food was amazing. For breakfast, the earlier the better. We got there at 8:15 and... More

Cafe Luitpold was a suggestion from the staff at our hotel and we were delighted! We had a wonderful meal at exceptionally reasonable prices. The bakery was incredible and we were very fortunate that this was our last day in Munich before flying into NYC for the holidays. I was able to purchase several treats to take home, which everyone... More

We found this place by chance towards the end of a walking tour. We had no idea of the reputation it had. We sat ourselves at the nearest available table by the window. Looking round we could see that this was a bit special....the decor, lighting the waitperson attire. Our waiter was looked busy and I felt that we were... More

We were looking a place for eating when we had found this cafe. The cafe has Michelin star. We tried sea bass and ox cheeks and they was delicious. Beer is nice too, but not the best. There were not many people in cafe when we were eating and out service was very fast.

This cafe is just mediocre! My boyfriend and I went there thinking it was a good idea since it is rated by Michelin, and we also saw good reviews. We were WRONG!! Came in to the cafe, no one seated us, we had to do it ourselves, that, I don't mind so much. Then, ordered our breakfast for 2. It... More

We just came in from the cold for a warming hot chocolate and were transported to a world of pure indulgence. Despite our table being reserved ( and the place packed ) we promised our lovely waiter we would not linger longer than 20minutes and we were treated with the utmost of care as if we were Royalty and not...

Naturally one is always a little dependant on the efficiency and courtesy of the waiting staff. Sadly in this regard we experienced neither. Food was ok for breakfast , not really better than ok. Service was really poor and slow. Rather think will take time before trying again. 10 am reservation, no coffee even until 10.45 !! Lacked any style... More

Café Luitpold is near the Odeonsplatz, easy to get to. Place was very busy when we were there, found a "cramped" place. Service was fast and friendly, coffee and cakes were very good. Prices are a little high for a place like Café Luitpold, guess you have to pay for the name too.
