Augsburg, situated on the river Lech, is one of Bavaria’s biggest towns after the city of Munich. It is most renowned for having counted among its inhabitants the famous playwright Bertolt Brecht and Leopold Mozart, Amadeus Mozart’s father. If you’re planning on coming to Augsburg you can visit their natal houses as well as the town’s impressive town hall, cathedral and basilica. If you get thirsty and feel the need to rest your legs, this list of the top 10 cafes and coffee shops in Augsburg will come in useful.
Being a ‘barefoot’ café with a lovely wild garden area and outdoor seating, the Barfüßer Café is closed for four months in winter. This is the perfect place to relax in the sun and listen to the bubbling of the nearby stream. It is important to the owners to source local and seasonal products and they form part of a community organization which strives to promote quality gastronomy. They make good coffee and serve delicious homemade cakes as well as tasty breakfasts and lunches.

There are actually two Dichtl cafés in Augsburg that are run by the same family, but this one is our personal favorite. They are professional cake and chocolate makers and they are constantly trying out new combinations of flavors. They also take orders for wedding cakes. The cafe is large and elegant with a polished wooden floor and delicate chandeliers, and they regularly exhibit a variety of artworks. Every Tuesday afternoon customers can enjoy a ‘cake buffet’ for less then five euros.
