Oskar Maria Brasserie

Typical Bavarian dishes, plus Italian & French food at a stylish locale popular for brunch. The bright, high room on the ground floor of the Literature House offers space for 220 people and still refers to its former function: there was once a market hall here, with a school on the floors above. With the conversion of the building into the Literature House and its opening in 1997, “a part of the old town was torn from its slumber,” as one journalist wrote, and the restaurant in the style of a classic coffee house is one of the most beautiful in Munich.

Buffet Kull Bar

When Rudi Kull and Albert Weinzierl met over 20 years ago, downtown Munich was deserted in the evening. Nevertheless, with a lot of courage and inspired by Rudi’s time in New York, the two created a restaurant that enriches Munich: a French bistro in New York style.

We would be happy to organize your event for you – whether it’s a family celebration, company event, aperitivo celebration, product presentation, birthday, Christmas party, christening and communion celebration, wedding or for a casual business meal, casual evening meal or lunch.

Petit Cafe

In 1962, the small Petit Cafe opened in the heart of downtown Munich. Not far from Marienplatz you will find here – directly opposite. of the Mandarin Oriental – an inconspicuous window front covered with ivy, which hardly allows any insight. Inconspicuous – but only at first glance. If you take a closer look at the Petit Cafe, it quickly tells the actual story of this bar and transports it with pictures.

Small but nice is the apt sentence here. The old piano fills the room with nostalgic impressions and suggests that guests have already filled unforgettable evenings here with a personal piano accompaniment. In summer, of course, you sit in front of the door and watch the hustle and bustle of the people of Munich with an espresso or a glass of Prosecco. Look forward to a gastronomic experience between the hustle and bustle of everyday life – at Massimo you can escape to Italy for a short (or longer) time. We look forward to you.
