Two weekends ago, I hopped on a plane to Munich to visit some friends and to live the Munich life again for two days. I lived in Munich for half a year in 2015, and it already felt like an eternity since I'd been there. In those 6 months, I tried more restaurants than I ever thought possible and compiled them all in one big guide. Of course, I couldn't try it all, so I was happy to finally tick Die Waldmeister off my list. This charming little place does a killer breakfast (or frühstück) on the weekend!
Breakfast is a big thing in Munich, so naturally, all good places are pretty packed. After looking at a few options, we ended at Die Waldmeister: a cosy little spot in Maxvorstadt.
We immediately settled at the best spot in the house and started checking out (or rather checking off) the breakfast menu.
Although the chef had run out of guacamole (oh no!), they were very accommodating and still managed to get us some form of avocado for breakfast. The staff is really sweet which for me makes the whole restaurant experience 100 times better.
Despite the fact that the place was packed, we got our breakfast order pretty quickly. A nice little spread of avocado, tomatoes, bircher müsli, fresh orange juice, tea and different kinds of bread. The bread is to die for, SO GOOD. It really made me miss living in Munich and being able to eat delicious bread every day. It's the little things... ;)
The bircher müsli was also very tasty, with a subtle and surprising hint of ginger. I must really try to make bircher müsli at home, it's such an easy and tasty breakfast!
Overall I highly rate the frühstück at Die Waldmeister. There's a very relaxed atmosphere, the restaurant is well spaced out and not packed like some other places, the food is high quality, simple and tasty and the staff is very kind. And I love the little detail of the menu where you can write on and choose your breakfast add-ons, such a cute idea. I would definitely go back! Find their info and menus here.
