While shopping downtown, this is the place for a quick energy fix. Their “Ausgezogene” are the traditional Bavarian equivalent of an American raised donut. You can even watch the baker stretch, shape and fry these delicious treats. Wait for the hot ones and ask for them dipped in sugar to go!

Just past Goetheplatz, this is my favorite store for Korean and Japanese ingredients. It isn’t chic, and neither are the prices. There is even an Asian Imbiss at the back where you can get sushi and stirfry to go.

This brand-new coffee shop is worth visiting for its funky, eclectic décor. While you drink your espresso, note the collection of fun vintage and modern lamps. A friendly family business with a Persian flair.
