Id never recommend this place, service was so awful and it took so much time to bring every single thing to the table. I ordered sth vegetarian and got sth with meat!

We sat in the area towards the back hoping for some quiet brunch further away from the other tables. Instead we got to listen to kitchen staff arguing and shouting throughout our stay as the kitchen door was left open and was near our seating area. Service was slow and unfriendly from two of the three staff who were working... More

This is one of our favorite places in Munich. You can almost always get a table without a reservation (unless its 11 AM on a weekend for Brunch... then reserve), the staff is great, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is classy and relaxed. The combination of German and Turkish cuisine is really good and they have a lovely... More

We went there at Easter 10 o'clock am for breakfast and ordered tree different breakfasts, two of them very simple (jam, boiled egg, butter, croissant) one with pita-bread, scrambled eggs, tree slices of air-dried ham, olives and some slices of cucumber and tomatoes. The 4th breakfast consisted of a plate with slices from 4 different cheeses and a boiled egg.... More

I went to Cafe Altschwabing for dinner and drinks with two colleagues during the week. The dinner dishes were very tasty. However, the cocktails were terrible, either way too sweet or way to sour and too much alcohol to actually enjoy the drink. Several times I have had cocktails at the same place before and they were always ok, especially... More

The atmosphere in this café is very welcoming, although the tables are a bit too packed together. But they have a wider room at the back where you can feel comfy. The choice of food is wide, and the dishes are huge. Lots of healthy but tasty options. I really recommend it.

Our friend suggested we go to this place in the Schwabing area, as they are open till late and will also serve food. I ordered a warm Turkish mixed starter plate and a delicious tiramisu. My hubby ordered some mascarpone strawberries and was very happy as well. Though the desserts were both delicious, I can´t really say the same about... More

Went to Altschwabing with a group of friends for lunch - though some of us had breakfast. The staff was very unorganized. One waitress tried to give us a plate of food before we even ordered - we still had menus. They ran out of rolls for the breakfast meals and could only offer flatbread. One person ordered crosissant, butter,... More

We went there in a big group (we had reserved a table) whilst on a stag weekend looking for brunch and something different to the usual fry ups or German cuisine. And that is what we got. Cafe atmosphere with great coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice (we ordered doubles of those!) and then some Turkish dishes on the menu.... More
