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!

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!

These really are one of the finest donuts I've ever had, however was disappointed when we arrived at 7:30am on a Tuesday and they weren't open as shown on TripAdvisor (which I understand is not their fault). The person setting up advised that they would open at 8am, so we ended up going to Starbucks around the corner for a... More

I absolutely loved this cafe and bakery, and I looked forward to going every day during our vacation. The interior has a very cabinesque wood decor, very clean and inviting. The service was always very friendly and smiling. The cappuccino's were the best I've had, and the Schmalznudel and Krapfen's were delicious! I'd highly recommend. Also, there's plenty of seating...

A very tiny place close to the Viktualienmarkt. The Schmalznudel (reminded me of churros) tasted really good and was served piping hot straight from the fryer. It dont get any fresher then that!

It was as fresh as it gets, they even asked me to wait a minute for a fresh one. The service was great and the cafe itself is cozy. I have only had one Schmalznudel, but I bet it would be the best one, and I'm definitley going back next time in Munich.

I'll start out by saying this is the best "donut" I've ever had. The schmalznudel is incredibly simple. It comes hot to your table and you sprinkle cane sugar on top to your liking. There is something so special about it! Order with some coffee and you won't be disappointed. A treasure in Munich!
