Heinrich Matters, Maxvorstadt

A new café has arrived in Munich. And it’s already pretty popular. Located on the corner of Luisen and Steinheil, the large airy space is buzzing with life – whatever the time of day.

Drawing in the guests are hearty breakfasts (think eggs and avocado), generous lunches (think huge salads and pasta) and delicious dinners (think shakshuka and curries). They also have a great selection of cakes, with classics such as banana bread and more unusual options such as the excellent sweet potato cheesecake.All dishes are prepared using high-quality ingredients, most of which are local. The meat for example comes from organic butcher Pichler, while the bread (also organic) comes from Grünwald bakery BrotZeit. The creations themselves are put together by chef Matze, who brings experience from Munich favourites Hey Luigi and Nage and Sauge.Located across from the Technical University of Munich, the crowd is student heavy, especially as the aforementioned large lunches come at a very reasonable price. After hours, the café has more of a bar vibe, with the young patrons sipping on bottles of local beer. Tilmans and Giesinger are fixtures on the menu.The backdrop to all this eating and drinking is a bright room that could double as a vintage furniture store, with large iron lamps and heavy wooden cabinets. The tables and chairs are more reminiscent of school days. Although in contrast to the classroom, it’s ok to copy the person sitting next to you. And as the tempting plates of food continue to arrive, it might be hard not to.
