“Great for people watching.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The whole experience was good. Took a while to get the attention of wait staff; but once engaged they were very friendly. A nice place to sit and enjoy the passing foot traffic.
Food was excellent.
They were very accommodating and trusting when our TRAVELLEX card could not be operated by them.

“Good for breakfast, a quick lunch, or coffee and dessert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

There are several Cafe Muenchner Freiheit around Munich. This is a convenient place to have breakfast, quick lunch, or coffee and dessert. The quiche & salad is a good lunch value and they do it well. We've had less success with their pasta or other dishes - the quality seemed low and the flavor was lacking. The coffee and desserts are usually good as well.

“Lovely Al Fresco dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

The warmer months are a perfect time to visit CMF. It has lots of outside seating (with blankets when it gets chilly) in a picturesque square and is always a hive of activity. Great fun for a meal, pastry or cake or one of their signature Ice-cream dishes.

It's reasonably priced too, and did I mention the cakes? My wife & I love to just sit outside sipping Spritz Aperols and watching Munich go by.

“Patience required”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2011

Cafe Münchner Freiheit appeals through its location. We went there for a sunday brunch on a perfecf sunny Munich day. The quality of food is reasonable, the prices too. Unfortunately the number of tables is probably two times too big for the capacity of the kitchen. You need to be extremely patient if you want ti eat something at that place. Appr 40 minutes after we placed the order we asked the waiter, when we could expect our food. The angry answer we received was not really pleasant. The waiter ment literally: you see how many tables we have, we have only five people in the kitchen, you need to wait.
