    Muenster Markets: What more do you want for lunch?

    by Maryimelda Written Oct 18, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best lunch ever......

    After a buffet breakfast included in the hotel tariff and thoughts of a lovely dinner each night, there is very little required for lunch, when I'm travelling. At the Muenster Markets there are a number of street vendors selling the classic German sausage and mustard on a bun. There are many varieties from which to choose and at 2 euro, the price is definitely right.

    Favorite Dish: I told the vendor to surprise me as I didn't know one sausage from another and she willingly obliged. I still can't tell you what I had, but I can tell you that it was absolutely delicious and smothered in a mild German mustard.....I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

    Gasthaus Restaurant Shuetzen: Food, wine and beer in a relaxed atmosphere....

    by Maryimelda Updated Feb 5, 2013

    This restaurant and beer garden is attached to the Hotel Gasthaus Schuetzen. It has a wonderful atmosphere and is usually quite busy. It is famous for its Sunday brunch from 11am to 2pm every Sunday and the place is packed. At 11.80 euro, for all you can eat, I can understand why. It is also open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

    Favorite Dish: I couldn't go past the Sunday brunch mainly because one small part of what was on offer was scrambled eggs and bacon. To an Australian/English/American traveller, this has got to be a big attraction. I did also have dinner here and it too was very good. It was a roast pork meal priced at about 9 euro. Lovely.

    Dreisam Ufer Café: New meeting place

    1. Caf�� by the river
    2 more images

    This new riverbank café near the university and the city center was first opened in the summer of 2006, and has quickly become a popular meeting place.

    While the indoor part is somewhat up-market, the outdoor area is a self-service beer garden "in the Bavarian style", so if you have ever been to one of the big beer-gardens in Munich you know how it works. There is a difference, though. In Bavaria you are usually allowed to bring your own picnic lunch with you to the beer-garden, and here there are signs saying that this is not allowed. (I suppose this is a cultural difference between Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg.)

    Second photo: Part of the self-service outdoor section is equipped with reclining garden chairs.

    Third photo: This part of the beer-garden has wooden chairs and tables, with the river in the background, as well as a bridge with a tram going across it.

  • ASPEKT: Great breakfast for low prices

    by Annalisa-Lucia Written Oct 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can eat little snacks the whole day at this Bistro like sandwiches and tapas - but the reason to visit this bar is its breakfast! It's every day, but the best choices you can make on sundays (until 6 pm). They serve everything you can imagine (including fish and seafood), when you choose the breakfast called "Europa" - for only EUR 8,00 incl. coffee and fresh orange juice. They offer ca. 15 different sorts of coffee from all good coffee regions and in countless ways of preparation...worth a visit! But also here the waiters aren't too fast...

    Favorite Dish: Breakfast "Europa" with several sorts of sausages and cheeses from different european mediterranean countries, seafood and so much more...and great coffee!

    Augustiner im Bankepeter: My secret affogato....

    Augustiner im Bankepeter.....

    This is another restaurant come beer garden which is high on my list of favourites in Germany. The beer garden does brisk business in the warmer weather but the inside restaurant is nicely appointed and very comfortable. The food is good basic German/Austrian with a lttle French and Italian influence as well. Prices are definitely within a price range that I found very affordable.

    Favorite Dish: I chose Veal Cordon bleu with chips and salad. It was cooked beautifully and presented well.
    A big plus in my book was that it was piping hot when it was put on the table. I accompanied it with a 1/4 litre jug of red. Thoroughly enjoyable but there was still a nice surprise awaiting me. The waitress was a German girl who had recently returned from a year in Australia where she also worked in restaurants, so we had a lot to talk about. When she removed my dinner plate, she asked me if I would like coffee. I don't enjoy coffee in Europe as much as I do at home, so I explained this to her and I was delighted when she offered to make me an Affogatto, "just like you have in Australia" she said. I was most impressed and of course enjoyed the affogato immensely.

    Gasthaus zum Stahl: Fine food

    by german_eagle Written Jul 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gasthaus zum Stahl

    This traditional inn can look back on a long history - first mentioned in 1680.

    It is located in a quiet rural suburb in the East of Freiburg near the Dreisam river. Large beer garden, tall trees providing shadow. Very cosy dining rooms. Service was top, food outstanding. Better make reservations for dinner.

    Favorite Dish: I opted for the three-course menu – free choices from the menu list! A Cremant d’Alsace with orange juice as aperitif. Not ordered, and not charged came brioche, ricotta and olives. First course was a green salad with asparagus and strawberries plus Italian dressing (very good). Main course was beef steak (medium) with roasted potatoes and French beans (very tasty). I had a local red wine (Pinot Noir) and mineral water. Dessert was Tiramisu with strawberries. An espresso finished the meal. The bill was 35 Euro incl. tip.

    Haus der Badischen Weine: Wine!!

    Haus der Badischen Weine

    This is not really a restaurant - it is a place where you can taste and drink a glass (or more) of local wine. They offer tables and seats in front of the house with great view of the cathedral and the Muensterplatz.

    Buy a glass of wine, drop on a seat in front of that house and eat your brought food (like the salami, cheese and baguette from the neighbouring food market)!

    Restaurants at Muensterplatz

    by german_eagle Written Jul 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the sunny side of life

    There is no special restaurant at the Muensterplatz to recommend - on the northern front you'll find some with excellent view of the cathedral, tables in front. Of course they are a bit touristy, but I found it to be very nice to do some people watching there. :-) Food and service were quite good.

    Favorite Dish: I had very good lunch: Maultaschen (a local specialty, stuffed noodles) with spinach and a glass of white wine from the region (Pinot gris).

    Mouthwatering selection

    This is another of those wonderful buffets which make it easy for you to budget for your meal. You can add it up as you choose and so know what you are up for when you get to the cash register.

    Favorite Dish: There is a wide selection of meals, snacks, sweets, beverages etc. They are all beautifully presented and cover a wide range of prices. You can spend as much or as little as you want.

    Cafe Legere: German & Russian & French

    by Zandra Updated Nov 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Legere, Freiburg, Germany

    This small and cosy cafe/restaurant serves excellent food at nice prices. There's quite a selection of dishes to choose from. The cuisine is international, with strong German influences. Beware - the portions are enormous! Adding to the atmosphere is the great mix of people; everything from school children and students to families, couples and businesspeople.

    Cafe Legere is a very popular place, so if you want to be sure of getting a table, make reservations!

    Favorite Dish: 'Spaetzlepfanne' (similar to casserole). Small pieces of meet mixed with onions, bell peppers and spaetzle (the German pasta) in a creamy white (wine?)sauce, overbaked with a thick layer of cheese, everything served in a pan!

    'Blinis' (Russian pancakes) is another favourite of mine!

    Gasthaus Zum rauhen Mann: A Tasty Mistake

    by travelfrosch Updated Feb 3, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Enjoying the outside seating (and a beer)
    4 more images

    We were actually trying to visit a nearby restaurant, but we wanted to sit on the edge of the outdoor seating to allow maximum room for Minifrosch and his stroller. It turns out, the outside edge of the seating belonged to the neighboring restaurant, Gasthaus Zum rauhen Mann. While our guidebook loudly warned its readers not to visit this "lesser-value" restaurant, we found the food to be perfectly reasonably priced. Service was friendly and the quality of the food was very good. It turns out we did not regret our "mistake" one bit.

    Favorite Dish: I tried the "Badische Flammenkuchen," a sort of cross between a pizza and a crêpe, topped with sour cream, smoked ham, and cheese. Sara tried the käsespätzle, a pasta-like dish with cheese. The featured beer was from the local Ganter brewery. I tried a half-liter of the tasty Ganter Urtrunk, an unfiltered "kellerbier" available only locally and on tap.

    Bratwurst

    According to my fiancé, (and he is German so he should know!:-)), the best Bratwurst you can get in Germany, is the one you can buy at the market in Freiburg!

    Favorite Dish: Bratwurst; the sausage is served in a small white bread, with ketchup, mustard and fried onions.

    -Sorry about the bad picture quality-
