The Arabica-Robusta debate
It can save the day, and the search for the answer is lengthy. This refers to the search for the best coffee in town.
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...
Coffee at Viktualienmarkt
It goes without saying that Viktualienmarkt must not be missing from a trip to Munich. But the trip is not only worth it for ticking your to-do list, but much more for drinking a really good coffee at the lads of the market's coffee roasting house.
Coffee is a passion here - and you can taste it. The best Arabica and Robusta beans, carefully roasted in the drum roaster following a traditional recipe, come together in the cup with regional Alpine milk from contented cows from the Berchtesgarden region. Enjoy your coffee overlooking the Viktualienmarkt, watch the hustle and bustle, and then dive straight back into the turmoil of the city.
Kaffeerösterei Viktualienmarkt / Viktualienmarkt Stand 3/26 / Monday – Saturday: 08.00–18.00

Bella Italia in Maxvorstadt

Cappuccino in your hand, Tramezzini in your mouth, and watching the hustle and bustle on Nordendstraße – this is Café Morso. Try completely authentic coffee for yourself, fresh Tramezzini and Florentine, and get the bug for Italian coolness.

The cosy coffee bar
Admittedly, it is not a real 'secret tip', but it is still worth a visit and the inhabitants of Munich love this small and cosy coffee bar.
Glockenbach is unthinkable without the Aroma Coffee Bar, an icon of Pestalozzistraße for creativity and enjoying coffee since 1998. The perfect place for a break after a shopping trip. It is a difficult choice, and with over 20 different versions of coffee from seven different types it can take quite a while to decide. Here you will find unusual bread for your break, snazzy 'Bresn', and lovingly baked cakes in the window of the former porn shop.
And if your coffee takes longer and evening has already broken over Munich, you can go straight for a Gin and Tonic at Frau Bartels, AWI, Perlwerk...
Aroma Kaffeebar / Pestalozzistraße 24 / Monday – Friday: 07.00–20.00 and Saturday & Sunday: 09.00–20.00
