Luigi Tambosi, oldest coffee shop in Munich


I learned on my HOP ON HOP OFF, double decker bus tour, that this was the oldest coffee shop in Munich!  So you know I had to have tea there!!!!

Odeonsplz. 18, City-Center
U3/6 Odeonsplatz
Tel. 089 298322



I ordered the Apfelstrudel with vanilla sauce for 4.80 Euros.  It was realy delicious






I ordeded a black tea, with milk.  Not sure what kind of tea I got, but it was black and tastey.  More impressive was the setting.  It was a beautiful day, the sun was out, the people were all around and it was like being in a movie.








Thumbs up for the afternoon snack!!


This is looking at where I sat.  There were more seats inside and also around back.

From the post on line, " Slightly posh, with cosy individual nooks and crannies filled with ornate and sumptuous armchairs, Tambosi is best enjoyed in winter, when there is snow on the ground and a chill in the air. The entrance is a bit forbidding as the door is shadowed by a heavy curtain, but that's fine because it keeps the tourists on the streets.

Inside, it's like the props from a Jane Austen film have been bought as a job lot and transplanted into this lovely old building to give it life. It works as a concept, but falls down a bit in practise, as it is a complete pain finding a seat usually. Waiters are overworked and few and far between, so make sure you order everything at once and the bill at the same time if you don't want to be hanging around for an extra 20 minutes to pay. The ground floor has a crushingly small bar area to the left. In the off-season, you will be watching trustafarians and a traditional, conservative crowd of young fogies"



this is the view from my table.  It was wonderful- felt like I was just another "European" enjoying the outdoor cafe.

I was all set to have "Afternoon Tea", but it did not start until like 3pm.  So, I decided to try somethig I have never had before- Eggs Benedict.  I also ordered a pot of Lemon Dream tea and scones.


Lemon Dream tea is apple pieces, lemongrass, nana mint, green mate, hawthorn berries, ginger pieces, liquorice root, green tea, Ming, rosemary, lemon peel, natural flavours from controlled organic cultivation.  IT WAS GREAT!  Not too lemony.  It had all sorts of wonderful notes to it.  I really liked it.

Now the eggs benedict are some of the best things I have ever tased in my life!!!!  I have no idea how I could be 42 and never had them.  Come to find out that my dad and sister love them.  I was in heaven eatting them!!!

The two freshly baked scones with strawberry jam and Cornish clotted cream were wonderful as well.

You are looking at one of my most favorite meals while in Munich!!!!

I had no idea what the "clump" was on top of the ham- boy was I pleasently surprised to find an egg!  It was incredibly wonderful tasting!!

The walk to the Victorian House was beautiul!!!!  I was so excited to get there!




 The giddy look on my face!!!!  This was my first trip here....I would end up going to two other Victorian Houses, and come again here to this one on my last day in Munich.  Yes, I love the tea experience.


I got the Jasmine Blossom Tea- it was really good.  I would recommend it!!!

I almost teared up, I was so excited to have "tea" at the Victorian House!!!!

I loved the way the sanwiches came all stacked together.  There was cucumber, ham, salmon, and chopped egg  - Just the right amount! 





The inside of the restaurant
I thought the prices were good, except I thought that 6.80 Euros for a pot of tea was a bit pricey.
This cute area is right across from the restaurant.  The whole setting is so idyllic.
