We stopped in mid-afternoon for a coffee and a pastry. We ate outside, in the back. It was a lovely garden area. The service was excellent. Our coffee and pastries were perfect. It was just what we needed in the middle of a busy afternoon.

We had breakfast here one of the days we were visiting Munich. These are some of the best pastries we've had in our trips all over the world. Everything was so fresh and flavors were subtle. They don't have a lot of choices but what...More
