1. Hidden Gem Munich: Ooh Baby I like it raw

This little cute hideaway is located in “Glockenbach”, an area close to the city center with lots of nice and small shops. The cafe is not only impressive because of its delicious food but also in terms of the cozy interior. There are only around 5 tables and some seating outside, but this creates the special atmosphere. The highlight from the breakfast menu is the avocado toast with salmon, egg and honey mustard dip. Next to the usual lunch and breakfast menu there is also a changing weekly offering with special dishes. As all their cakes are personally made at Ooh Baby I like it raw it is also worth stopping by for a little coffee and cake break. You can see, feel and taste that the owner puts lots of love and effort in the café.

4. Hidden Gem Munich: Bami House

Little Vietnam in Munich! For an authentic Vietnamese experience, you sit on tiny plastic chairs while eating your food. The menu ranges from Pho over Banh Mi to Sticky Rice. It´s hard to decide which meal to pick! But don´t worry – whatever you choose will be fantastic. For Munich especially, the prices are pretty fair and the food is top quality.

5. Hidden Gem Munich: Soul Kitchen

If you fancy a good pizza while being in Munich, stop by at Soul Kitchen –you will get a real Neapolitan pizza here. If you’ve been asking yourself what’s so special about this pizza, here’s the answer: the dough rise for three days before being processed. The pizza is then put into the original Italian pizza oven for just 90 seconds at more than 400 degrees, which makes the crust fluffy and the wafer-thin base soft. Try the “Bufala”! It is our favourite.

6. Hidden Gem Munich: Man versus Machine

To get your daily dose of caffeine, stop at Man versus Machine. The roastery opened its doors in 2014 in the hip district Glockenbach, but you can also find them in two other locations now. Since then, they attract lovers of “Speciality Coffee”, also called the Third Wave Coffee. Make sure to try the flat white coffee with oat milk! It´s a dream. There is also something special about the interior at their location in Schellingstr. – the wallpaper was designed by a local tattoo artist.

This is a spot for breakfast lovers and probably the most instagrammable café in Munich. Every detail is made with love! Rose gold dinnerware, marble tabletops, cacti in beautiful pots, cognac-coloured leather cushions and a turquoise tiled counter. No matter if you love hearty or sweet breakfasts, Mary’s Coffee Club offers both. How about the oriental flat bread with beetroot hummus, feta, egg and avocado?

Kind of “not so Munich!” It´s not posh, it´s not Bavarian – it´s hipster. The hangout spot at Ostbahnhof is made out of old and colorful containers.
