If you like coffee and Italian sweets, this is the place for you. Good food, bites to eat - it is not cheap but prices are appropriate for the quality offered. There are actually 2 miamamias in Essen - my favourite is the one closer to Ruettenscheider Stern, in Ruettenscheider Strasse 74a. It hasn't got a garden and the only... More

I had forgotten how bad the coffee is in Germany and I have been struggling to find good, strong espresso and lattes. This is the only place I would recommend for coffee addicts visiting the Ruhrgebiet. There are two of these, and I only tried the one at 183 Ruttenschiderstr. The atmosphere is very nice and all the intellectuals in... More

I have been to this place my times because they simply have the best salad! The brownie is also amazing. Staff is friendly, prices are fair, fully recommended to everyone!

The chronologically first *and better of the two* Miamamia cafe in Essen. Nice location, garden in the summer available. Coffee and cake are really nice. Try the vanilla cake. The prices are ok, the staff is friendly an relaxed.

The place is very sweet, you get to sit at large tables with other customers. The food is very good and comes in generous portions. The cakes looked delicious and the bruschettas are really yummie.

Mia Mamia is located on the "RÜ". RÜ is a street with a lot of restaurants, cafes and stores. I ordered Cappuccino and a cake called "Nusshoernchen". After I ate the Nusshoernchen and drank my coffee I bought three Nusshoernchen for to take at home. That was the most tasty Nusshoernchen I ever ate ! We will definitely come back.... More

This is one of my regular all-day breakfast places. OK, they have more of a lunch menu, but actually a lot of things suitable for brunch. For indoor eating the restaurant at Rüttenscheider str. 74a has the best atmosphere (and the staff seem happier too). For outdoors try the other restaurant at Rüttenscheider str. 183 (they have a nice garden... More

This is one of the nicest locations I have eaten - it is so lovely that any girl would love to be invited to this small bistro... the only downside is that apparently they are, as it can be really crowded, especially in the weekend. Best omelette in Germany, they also have excellent bread (there is one party bread, over... More
