While you’re in the city centre, take a break from the attractions with a trip to Stereo Café. This stylish café is the epitome of chic, with simple, trendy décor and an equally stylish menu. Serving a range of light bites, fresh salads, sandwiches and larger plates, Stereo Café is the perfect rest-stop for a day in Munich. You must try the ravioli with spinach and of course, the avocado on toast. The coffee is also incredible, favoring the Italian style over the German. For the super health conscious among you, there is also a well-stocked juice and smoothie bar, perfect for that boost of natural energy.
Transport yourself from day to night in the intimate and chic Cole & Porter Café and Bar. This stylish spot is a local favorite, serving amazing coffee and delicious lunch menu in the day. Inspired by the Jazz artist Cole Porter, this trendy café feels more like a Jazz club, with its wooden interiors and moody atmosphere. This is the perfect spot for an intimate lunch or solo snack. The bar here is also very well-stocked with a range of rare spirits, so if you fancy a tea-time tipple, head here. What’s also great about Cole & Porter is that it’s located right on the busy shopping street of Sendlingerstrasse, but when you step out onto the charming and peaceful courtyard you’d never know you were right in the hustle and bustle.

For something a little more quirky and relaxed, you might want to try Café Jasmin, located on the busy Augustenstrasse. This charismatic café is small, cosy and full of charm. The coffee here is great, with a choice of roast to please any coffee lover. The fresh lemonade is what really stands out though, so you must not leave without trying that. Café Jasmin is the perfect place to spend an afternoon relaxing, reflecting and watching the world go by.
If you have never heard of “specialty coffee” you may want to check it out yourself at Man versus Maschine. The coffee here has been carefully selected from the best green beans of coffee around the world which means no sip will be too bitter or sweet. From fruity to chocolaty, they serve nothing but Arabica because as stated on their official website, they only offer the coffee they would want to drink.
Sometimes coffee, just like wine, must be tasted or at least this is what Café Blá suggests with its “due” and “trio” tasting sections. The world behind coffee is more complex than one would imagine. Citrus, yellow fruits, chocolate, caramel or nuts, which is your favourite?
