The Cafe an der Uni is a high-capacity, half-indoor, half-outdoor (covered) cafe in an unlikely spot on the main road nestled in among the big university buildings. It is clearly a local favorite and has the brunch basics to match. Eggs, pancakes, etc. All very good, and with a pleasant feel. Recommended.

I used to like this place, but the last time I went the food was really average and the music was too loud and what was worse is that it just wasn't suited to the people at CADU (loud hip hop). Don't think I'll be coming back.

I was here with friends during the October fest time. We set outside which was quite nice and they had heaters above the tables to keep us warm. The menu was interesting to read as they gave famous names to the dishes they serve. The food was tasty enough and the prices were reasonable. I had pasta which was okay... More

The cafe near the University of Munich is mainly crowded by students during the breaks of the lectures or by locals to have a beer or a coffee. There, you can find quite everything from coffee and tea to lunch and dessert, of course, beer is always there (you are in Germany). In summer there are tables outside, the atmosphere... More

Cafe an der Uni is the University's students cafe of choice, which serves an incredible amount of dishes - the first sign of trouble. While the seating and the atmosphere were agreeable, nothing we ordered tasted any good, besides the beer. The cake recommended by the waitress was very bland, the Eisshake too sweet, the weisswurst was the worst we... More

Food was fine for a quick lunch there. However the bar manager (black haired lady) told me off big time when she saw me drinking my own bottled water - she was very rude and abrupt. We had no problem drinking our own bottled water in England. I didn't know we were not allowed in Bavaria - she could have... More

Stumbled upon this place. There is nothing around this area - nothing, as far a shops, bars or restaurants. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Would go back for a longer visit.

I simply asked twice a GLASS of water at the table and the waitress brought me a BOTTLE of water ( 3 Euro). These kind of tricks are totally unfair, sorry!

CadU, as it is known, is opposite the central buildings of Munich university, and is very much a student/academic place. But everyone is welcome (I am retired, and am often seen there, too). In summer, there are tables outside. Friendly service, good food
