Not that perfect in my opinion
Posted on 01 / 31 / 2015
I came here with high expectations due to all those fantastic reviews, but my experience was a little bit different. First, when I stood in front of the counter wanting to make my order, there were three members of staff behind the counter, but all of them totally ignored me and did not even smile or greet me for several minutes before they finally asked me what I wanted. And this behaviour of the staff continued, I found them quite unfriendly and I waited ages both for my meal and later for a slice of cake and a cup of tea.
The cafe is gorgeous, though, the interior is very charming and cozy. However, it's very small and full of tables and chairs, so when it's crowded, you can hardly move or put on your jumper or jacket.
The lunch options were very limited with just one real meal and a few smaller options. So I chose the daily special, a rice dish with many ingredients: celery cream, lentils, a salad with tahini dressing, carrots, olives, capsicorn and capers. It tasted very well and the different ingredients were well balanced, but it wasn't filling at all. I was still very hungry although I am not a big eater and most of the times can't finish my meals. I had a slice of banana and chocolate cake for dessert and it tasted well, too.
Unfortunately, I think it's quite overpriced. I must admit I don't know about the price levels in Munich, but my bill came to 21€ for the small lunch meal, the slice of cake (which was not huge, either) and two cups of tea - I have definitely eaten better and more in similar European cities.
