I had the Schmalznudel and a large decaf coffee with milk, and both were delicious and hit the spot on a cold winter evening. The Schmalznudel was warm and tasty on its own, but also went great with a sprinkle of sugar on top. Fried without being too oily, it was one of the best doughnut-like pastry I have ever... More

There isn’t much on offer, but you come for the schmalznudel – and it’s pretty delicious! Essentially sweet fried dough, so simple, but so tasty. It is a little oily, but you know what you’re getting yourself into when you order this. Service is good too. We sat at the back but never had to wait long for a waiter... More

You won't find a "tourist" breakfast with egg and stuff. But it is a tradicional bakery with great bread. Very good coffee.

Cafe Frischhut is across a small street from the Viktualienmarkt, and provides tourists and locals with the best coffee in a Relaxing outdoor seating area. But the Highlight of your visit is the SCHMALZNUDEL ! The bavarian equivilent of a fresh, very fresh, but less sweet Donut! Much bigger, and very tasty!

Eager to get something wholesome into me before Oktoberfest, I decided the best course of action was a deep fried pastry. And Cafe Frischhut, with schmalznudel in its name, was the obvious choice. Right on the outskirts of the Viktualienmarkt, the cafe is perfectly suited for outside people watching. Sitting down on one of the sidewalk's aluminum chairs, I managed... More

We visited around 9:30am on a Friday, sat outside and paid a little more to eat in instead of take out. Glad we did! The pastries were piping hot like they were fresh from the oven and the cappuccinos were wonderful. The staff were lovely and helpful. Definitely go out of your way to try the Schmalznudel! When we visited... More

We had a pleasant breakfast at this cozy cafe. I had the krapfen and hot chocolate. Very satisfied with both. Friendly service too. The lady who served our table was cheerful and took the effort to patiently and thoroughly explain to us and describe the items on the menu. Much appreciated.

The schmalznudel (sweet, fried dough) at this cafe is perfectly fried and not overly sweet. This was one of the best breakfast pastries I've ever had, especially for how simple it was. We sat down shortly after it opened and my wife and I each ordered a schmalznudel and cup of coffee. The coffee was even very good too. A... More

It is delicious!! The coffee is really good too! Definitely worth trying. Close to the market and Marienplatz! The neighborhood has tons of shops around. Easy to walk to.

Headed there after lunch nearby and thankfully it wasn't as crowded as we've heard it would be. Ordered a Schmalznudel and it was delicious! Light, fluffy and not too oily. The lady at the counter was very pleasant and welcoming, but the other waitress's service could have been better. Food was great, would definitely return back for another delicious Schmalznudel!
