After an overload of beer (due to Oktoberfest preps) when visiting Münich during our InterRail trip, we were craving for some good coffee. At a cool place of course.
We had limited time, but we’ve found three places in the Glockenviertel’s Müllerstrasse that made it to our list:
When locals say this place serves the best latte macchiato in town we have to try. We can’t deny it was good! But it’s also a no-nonsense entourage with vintage stools and abstract art and friendly staff. This is also the kind of place where you can easily transition from day to night, as Loretta bar transforms from a coffee/lunch place to an evening hangout for trendy locals.
Especially worth mentioning is that Loretta is open at 7 am during weekdays. For the earlybirds!
Right across the street from Loretta is another nice venue, named after the lively neighbourhood it is located in. This one is totally different though, with its retro-modern interior, cosy window seats and two levels.
At 7pm, Glockenbach turns into a restaurant, serving Bavarian/Italian cuisine to the hip crowd. You might not expect it, but they also do take-away! Yet, we would aim for the lunch special here with a great offer: a main course, a side dish, soup or salad, AND a coffee (espresso or capuccino) for just €9,80
•Man versus Machine
You get the pun, right? Man versus ‘Coffee’ Machine. This is the cool kind of coffee shop, with bearded men in raw denim behind the counter, and it just opened a week prior to our visit.
They roast their own coffee (duh) and there are a lot of ‘manly’ elements surrounding you while sipping your cup of ‘Dark Gold’: hand-drawn crocs all over the place, bike frames (spotted a nice bicycle outside as well) and skate decks.
From filter coffee to aero press (they have a matte black steamer!), and from latte art to tea, this is your new coffee place to be.
