Gartensalon, Maxvorstadt

This place is serious about breakfast. Serving sweet and savory options all-day long on weekends, it’s a great spot for early risers or lazy brunchers.

The eggs (from happy Bavarian chickens) come in various shapes and sizes: boiled, fried or scrambled – with the option to add tomato, chili, olives, different cheeses or bacon to the latter. Then there are also mueslis, croissants and chunky slices of bread with different toppings. The setting is relaxed and when the sun comes out, you can enjoy the large terrace that fills the backyard in which the cafe is located. It is this backyard spot which makes Gartensalon a bit tricky for newbies to find. But if you head up Türkenstraße and look out for the large blue and white “Amalienpassage” signs, you should get there.Inside, the café is bright and colourful with various knickknacks and local goods, such as honey, for sale. The most colourful area, however, is undoubtedly the cake display. 

In fact, cake is the other thing they take very seriously. If you head to their website, you can find a full list of all the bakes they offer. Whilst they won’t all be available in the cafe at any one time, you can order them for events by calling 2 – 3 days ahead. Be warned: it isn’t an easy choice. There are 37 in total clustered into mouthwatering categories.
