1 new restaurant/café to try

Café Jasmin

If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat to go with your afternoon coffee, then Café Jasmin is the perfect spot for you.

It’s cozy and welcoming, with a menu full of delicious dishes - including vegan options, scrumptious cakes and refreshing beverages.

Who needs a time machine when you can sip on your latte while lounging in what feels like a Baroque living room?

And a heads up - this place tends to get pretty busy and they don’t take reservations. But if you’re up for it, it's definitely worth the wait.

They have a lovely 3D plan online if you just want to take a walk around the café without leaving your home.

📍Steinheilstraße 20, 80333 München
