Nice place for a drink, rather crowded as well but staff is rather indifferent. Had to wait quite some time for drinks to arrive with an unfriendly attitude.

We went here one afternoon for lunch and had one of the best meals of our entire trip. The menu's are only in german, but the staff speaks just enough English to help you to select something that appeals to you. I opted to play it safe and took the pasta, which was absolutely delicious! and the Mrs. had a... More

I found this lovely place by accident, but so glad I did. They have a delightful quiet terrace outside, next to the Museum, with plenty of tables, some in the shade, some in the sun. I had a lovely pannini, promply served, and a couple of wonderful Augustiner beers, my favourite!

I used to come here a few times on visits several years ago and on this recent visit to Munich I wanted to bathe in fond memories and decided to have lunch. I used to like this place very much, but I am afraid I have to agree with the other reviewers that the quality of service (unfriendly, unattentive, slow)... More

They were out of many dishes on the menu. I ordered pasta with mangold, which they had. Mangold is a vegetable. In the end I got pasta with pesto and baby mozzarella after 1,5 hours of waiting! I had ordered and repeated the word mangold 3-5 times. I didn't accept the plate with pesto and cheese, because it didn't appeal... More

Half the items on the menu were already 'out' With the waiter saying 'thats also out' as each person in turn picked out their dish.''Tell us what you have left then''! Drinks and food arrived staggered, forgotten... More

The location was great, with outdoor dining in a well travelled plaza. However, as middle aged travelers we must not have appeared hip enough for them to give good attention or service. And the food was adequate, but when compared to the wealth of oustanding food available all over Munich, this was a disappointment. On the plus side, how can... More

Staff spoke good English and were very patient while we made up our minds. Lots of choice on the menus and specials boards, this is a very popular place and we struggled to find a seat - however you can usually get on the high stools which are fine. It's quite dark and cosy on a chilly day and we... More

The Stadtcafe used to have a nice, youthful atmosphere even though the service was terrible. These days it doesn't even manage that. It's tired and stuffy and the service is the worst in Munich. This doesn't seem to interest the owners in any way. So don't visit this cafe. There are alternatives. This place, and it's incompetent owners, are not... More
