“Great Afternoon Energizer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Tracked down the "Schmalznudel" and added an espresso for a jet lag repair. Good stuff! Freshly prepared. Munich's answer to an upscale funnel cake. Service was quick. Atmosphere was inviting with several seating area options as the Cafe goes on and on. The trek to find the "nudel", through a beautiful outdoor market and beer garden added to the fun. Great place for a coffee break.

“Quirky Cafe - do try the schmalznudel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Not a very long menu - but the Schmalznudel was everything a great doughnut should be - freshly prepared and light. Friendly staff good choice of drinks. Don't leave Munich without a visit.

“Schmalz ist schmalz.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

I'm glad I tried this once, but with so many good cafés offering a wide variety of delicious pastries in Munich, I'm not sure what people find so great about this place. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, but the Schmalznudel just sort of sat there like lead in my tummy. I guess you have to be a doughnut lover to really enjoy this place.

“NOTHING could be a better break and addicting as well”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

This splice is fantastic; when you need a break OR if you've been before you are addicted; the staff is wonderful and the fried and sugared "donuts" (not exactly that shape) are to die for. It's hard to stop yourself from having several especially when they are still warm. OMG, they are fabulous.

“THIS IS A MUST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

This place is legendary in Munich and very few people know of it. Schmalznudel is a traditional Bavarian desert which is served here and its absolutely delicious! Have it with your coffee or tea. If your in the area definitely pop in, you wont regret it.
