They must be tired of serving tourists, who probably comprise almost all of their guests. The food is fine, the coffee is fine, the location is excellent, and the servers are clearly trying to make it through their work hours trying not to be asked anything. I ordered an "Americano" which was not on the menu, so I asked for... More

It was nice - most of all you will like the view - the centure of Marienplatz- many different people, 90 % tourists visiting the city ! It would be better to order cakes - they are really ameizing here - you will have good choices. But what I didnt like- the prices- they could be better ! But... if... More

I visited on a cool summers day for a quick lunch and beer. Not expecting anything too special we sat down outside and were greeted by happy, helpful staff. It was relatively quiet when we sat down and ordered some typical bratwurst and beers which arrived promptly enough. Within minutes the area was crowded with people and we were wondering... More

It's been a cold , rainy day and after a long walk we felt the need to get some warming so we entered the upstairs cafe and were not so surprized to see that most of the tables were taken. We had very good coffe and tea and some cakes. Most of the patrons around us were having either a... More

After just flying in to Munich we were tired and in need of coffee and a rest with sweet. This place met the requirements. Small so you may need to wait, and a little expensive, but great location right on Marienplatz overlooking the Glockenspiel. Good service and a nice way to start our trip. It's on the 5th floor of...

Wow, I could not imagine a worst tourist trap/ terrible restaurant than this one. We were in Munich on a rainy Saturday night & decided to stop in. First off, there were fruit flies buzzing around the restaurant & although the service was prompt and friendly the food was so bad & overpriced it was truly remarkable. I ordered the... More

This restaurant is on Marienplatz, right in front of the Glockenspiel, has to be a tourist trap, right? Wrong! I went in for an early lunch, ate the weisswurst which the restaurant invented, according to the literature on display, and loved it so much that I ended up eating there several times during my stay in Munich. Service was friendly... More

Stopped in and sat outside to have a few beers. It's right in front of the Glockenspiel so it's nice to sit and watch that. Service was very slow. We had 2 rounds of beers and waited another 20 min for our bill. Looked like they needed more help.

Nicely located in Marienplatz. It's a tiny little place, but the menu is nice. I was in the mood for a salad, and there were several choices. The service was a little slow, but it was a cold day so sitting longer inside wasn't a bad thing. The girls on the wait staff were dressed in traditional attire. The food... More

This is always my first stop while visiting Munich. It's is in Marienpatz right in front of the Glockenspiel. The food is traditional German and they have a nice variety of beer. It's a great place to people watch and of course when the Glockenspiel goes off you will have a front row view. They do only take cash and... More
