Munich is famous for its amazing beer, beer halls and beer gardens. So, whether it is the traditional, meaty cuisine or Oktoberfest-like experience that you are looking for, Munich has a lot of places to offer. When the weather is warm and sunny, we highly suggest visiting a beer garden and when it’s cold a beer hall will be warmer and cozier.
While every Munich visitor should enjoy a classic pretzel and beer, Munich food culture goes beyond most expectations. Quaint cafés, hip bars, and delicious international street foods are just some of the delights waiting for you!

There are four Cotidiano cafés in Munich but this one in Glockenbachviertel is by far our favorite. It’s super spacious and serves a variety of breakfasts and the coffee is amazing too. Pro tip: make sure to come early as it gets full really quick.
