Rischart's Café Kaiserschmarrn

From Oktoberfest breakfast to caipirinhas at the bar

As the name suggests, this is the place to enjoy freshly prepared kaiserschmarrn (a traditional pancake dish). The other sweet treats are worth a sin too: In the evening, it turns into flirt central. The bar serves what must be the biggest spritz at the entire Wiesn.

What’s special: the Oktoberfest’s only catwalk

Thanks to its unmissable, kitschy appearance, the sugar castle near Bavaria is a popular meeting point. Café Kaiserschmarrn is also known as the Rischart Tent. There you can enjoy a coffee and baked specialties outdoors, or have breakfast inside – perfect for kids and the whole family. From noon, the music starts to play and the mood gets gradually livelier until evening, when guests can enjoy the Oktoberfest’s only catwalk with caipirinhas and other drinks. Reservations are highly recommended!

The audience: The over-40s in-crowd

“The Okotberfest’s biggest over-40s party” takes place in the Kaiserschmarrn tent, they say — and it’s true. While the small tents used to exist to catch the overflow from the big tents, Café Kaiserschmarrn is a destination in its own right for a fun-filled night at the Oktoberfest. It’s a big draw among the Munich in-crowd, but that’s just how it is at the Oktoberfest — it’s all about diversity!

The menu: Kaiserschmarrn and breakfast

The café’s namesake is freshly cooked before your eyes in a huge, cast-iron pan. You can also find all kinds of other sweet treats and ice creams from the confectioner, Rischart. The Oktoberfest secret tip is the breakfast: scrambled eggs, honey-roast ham, fruit salad, fresh yogurt, a fluffy croissant and a glass of orange juice or even prosecco. If you prefer something savory, you might opt for the famous flammkuchen or a soup. No beer is served here, but you can find caipirinha, spritz and Hugo, as well as non-alcoholic drinks.

Only here: Free wedding cake!

Every day at 2 pm, a special ceremony takes place at Café Kaiserschmarrn: To commemorate the occasion of the Munich Oktoberfest, the wedding of Ludwig von Bayern and Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen in 1810, the landlords, Gerhard and Magnus Müller-Rischart cut a multi-tiered wedding cake daily, and distribute the first pieces to the guests for free.
