Just steps away from our hotel, we saw a line of people and knew whatever it was had to be good. The schmalznudel was so good we had one every day. My gosh, fresh out of the oil, deliciously covered in sugar, you could have it for breakfast, a snack, dessert or just because. You can eat in or takeaway.... More

Do yourself a favor and stop by here in the afternoon for a delicious schmalznudel. The ones we ordered were hot off the grill (you can watch them being made) and melted in our mouths. We tried one that was plain and one doughnut that had jelly in the middle. Yum!

We were only in Munich for four days but we ate breakfast here twice - apparently it's a bit of an institution! The pastries (there are four to choose from) and freshly made, extremely tasty and great value for money! Well worth a visit at any time of the day if you're in the mood for coffee and pastry.

Great cafe near plenty of shopping and the city center in Munich. There is a large area outside to sit with a waitress serving the tables. You can only get coffee if you stay. There is no "to go" coffee... only pastries (which are fantastic). Don't miss Eataly across the street! It's a great stop for foodies.

I had the Schmalznudel and a large decaf coffee with milk, and both were delicious and hit the spot on a cold winter evening. The Schmalznudel was warm and tasty on its own, but also went great with a sprinkle of sugar on top. Fried without being too oily, it was one of the best doughnut-like pastry I have ever... More

There isn’t much on offer, but you come for the schmalznudel – and it’s pretty delicious! Essentially sweet fried dough, so simple, but so tasty. It is a little oily, but you know what you’re getting yourself into when you order this. Service is good too. We sat at the back but never had to wait long for a waiter... More

You won't find a "tourist" breakfast with egg and stuff. But it is a tradicional bakery with great bread. Very good coffee.

Cafe Frischhut is across a small street from the Viktualienmarkt, and provides tourists and locals with the best coffee in a Relaxing outdoor seating area. But the Highlight of your visit is the SCHMALZNUDEL ! The bavarian equivilent of a fresh, very fresh, but less sweet Donut! Much bigger, and very tasty!
