Places for dessert in Munich
Because Monday may just never shake off its poor image, and because spirits are often only slightly raised. Because an afternoon low often overtakes you more than you want, or because you just love its aroma... We have hunted for Munich's best coffee kick and present to you our favourite place for terrific coffee...
The 'Verrückte Eismacher': Ice cream from the enchanted forest
An ice cream always goes down well, and at the 'Verrückte Eismacher' choosing is significantly harder than at 'Giovanni' around the corner. How about a roast pork ice cream with a wheat bear scoop on top? Or one, two or three scoops of sorbet, which would raise the pulses of the vegans of this world. Children's dreams become just as true with Nutella bread and Bueno ice cream, as adult ones do with Gin and Tonic and hemp ice cream.
You can taste the ice cream right on site in the fitting Alice in Wonderland atmosphere. To get there, just take the U3/U& U-Bahn from our Cocoon hotels to the 'Universität' stop.
Der Verrückte Eismacher:
Opening hours: daily 12:00 to 21:00
Address: Amalienstraße 77, 80799 Munich
Gartensalon: The childhood tree house in the centre of Munich
Between a couple of houses in a small courtyard and in the centre of Maxvorstadt lies Gartensalon. A colourful place with plenty of lovely details, and particularly good home-made cakes. The place reminds you of your visit to Grandma, where there were always a smell of fresh apple pie and you didn't want to stop playing in the garden until it was dark. At the Gartensalon you can escape day-to-day life, even if it is in the centre of the city. A short tram journey ending at the 'Schellingstraße' stop with line 27/28 takes you to the Gartensalon from our Cocoon hotels.
Find what you fancy from the different types of cake, enjoy a good shot of coffee, or sweeten up your day with a home-made lemonade. The highlight to finish off with: You can put together your own colourful bag at the counter. Just like in days of old.
Opening hours: Mon - Sat 09:00-19:00, Sun from 10:00
Address: Türkenstraße 90, 80799 Munich
Mochis: The trendy dessert from Japan
In Munich, you will find Kaiserschmarren on every corner. Finding Mochis is somewhat more difficult. The Japanese rice cakes are not only popular with bloggers, but also with anyone wanting something sweet and sticky. We find that the best ones are at 'J-Bar', which is also worth a visit for a starter and main course, J-Bar is small and traditional, with low prices for Munich standards. So make the trip from Munich to Japan and enjoy this tasty Japanese dessert. You can eat Kaiserschmarren the next day.
Opening hours: Mon - Thurs 12:00-13:30 & 18:30-23:30, Fri & Sat 18:30-23:30; Sun closed
Address: Maistraße 28, 80337 Munich
