Any trip to Munich would be incomplete without a visit to bohemian Schwabing. Where numerous artists used to live and work, you will now find great shopping and cafe culture. After a busy morning exploring, reward yourself with brunch at one of these top 10 spots.

1. Boulangerie Dompierre

Cafe, Coffee, Pastries

Let’s admit it, no one can resist French baguettes and croissants. Although there are lots of bakeries in the city, you won’t find more authentic products and of such a high quality than those at Boulangerie Dompierre. Choose from warm loafs or delicious pastries and grab a coffee to recharge your batteries in the most enjoyable way.

2. Arts 'n' Boards

From the moment you enter Arts ‘n’ Boards you will be immersed in a warm, relaxed maritime atmosphere. With comfortable seats, unique decorations, an attentive staff, a brunch buffet with a surprising variety from savory treats to salads and desserts and a piano player playing jazz tunes, it’s no wonder this place has such a great reputation among locals.

Don’t miss the raspberry-soy cream pie and the lactose-free options.

5. Das Gaumenspiel

Deli, Restaurant, German

This café is partly a lovely deli selling handmade food products and partly a small vintage café where you can relax with a drink and a snack. The super friendly staff only add to Das Gaumenspiel’s attractive ambience.

6. Café Königin 43

If you like antique furniture and decorations, spend some time in Café Königin 43, beloved not only due to its proximity to the English Gardens but also thanks to the tasty coffee, fresh juices, homemade snacks and refreshing salads which will not disappoint.

Get your superfood fix at Daddy Longlegs, known for the use of the açaí berry, native to South America’s rain forests and high in antioxidants. Even though the açaí bowls with a selection of toppings are the specialty, the homemade cakes, muffins and savory treats are equally delicious.
