“Tourist trap, but tasty”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Been here quite a few times while in Munich over the last few years in Winter. Overall, I think the reviews so far are overly harsh. The food is good, service in our eyes was friendly and whilst the place is expensive compared to other places in Germany it is a tourist trap and about similar to what we'd pay in Dublin. The choice is excellent and the cakes extremely nice.

Expect to pay quite a lot, but expect to enjoy it.

“Cosy café with good food”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Had lunch for two people in the courtyard. Service was fine although the English skills of staff could have been better. Had a plate of spätzle and one of turkey schnitzels, plus two frankfurters as a snack. The food was good although the presentation was plain. Location is excellent and the interior decoration is quaint and with character.

“Overpriced, poor service”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

This review relates to the outdoor service area in the middle of Marianplatz, not the indoor cafe part which might be quite different. We experienced an unhelpful and grumpy staff member as well as having to pay very high prices for nothing special. This is the first time that I have experienced indifferent service or attitude in an eating establishment in Germany. The only thing that we could find to recommend it was the location, as if affords a good view of the passing parade.

“Unfriendly service and poor value.”
Reviewed 19 July 2012 via mobile

It is a little cafe in the middle of the main walking street, Kaufingerstr. We ordered a pot of tea for 5.10 euro. For this we received a small pot of water, a mug and a teabag. There was enough water for two cups of tea but when we asked for another mug we were told that was out of the question. Generally unfriendly and unhelpful service didn't not help to make up for the ridiculous prices.
