Specialty coffee and vegan cinnamon buns at Suuapinga
Schwabing has one more café and the coffee junkies among you can look forward to a curated selection of specialty coffees. Suuapinga offers high-quality and carefully selected coffees, as well as homemade, vegan cinnamon buns and delicious organic butter sandwiches - here, less is more.
Behind this special name are Pete, Emanuel and Lucas, who dared to open a café in the middle of the pandemic after finishing their studies. Even though the boys actually studied architecture, political science and mathematics, they are now the proud owners of Suuapinga. Their enthusiasm for specialty coffee has made it possible. The name is a little difficult to pronounce at first, but if you know the story behind it, the choice of the new café owners seems quite logical. In fact, the name refers to one of Munich's oldest districts and the district in which the new café is now located: Schwabing was first mentioned as Suuapinga in 782, making it even older than the city of Munich itself.
Fair beans and delicious coffee
The café's menu is just as minimalist as the stylish and minimalist interior of Suuapinga. You won't find normal coffee here, but specialty coffee. The term stands for high-quality, light-roasted coffee beans, whose supply chains and fair working conditions are transparent. The three guys only offer 100% Arabica beans that are roasted in Bavaria. This enables them to extract the coffee with all its aromas.
You can then enjoy the result as a classic coffee, espresso, flat white or seasonal creations such as cold brew, iced coffee or espresso tonic. For everyone else, there are lemonades and hot chocolate. What you should definitely try is a cold brew with ice and orange zest - a house recommendation. If you're feeling peckish, Suuapinga offers vegan cinnamon buns and organic butter sandwiches with homemade herbal salt. Just a few ingredients combine to create tasty treats.
It pays to come by early
The café's outdoor seating invites you to linger, but is quite small. If you haven't got a seat, you can simply take the drink of your choice with you in a reusable cup. Suuapinga is currently open during the week from 08:00 to 17:00 and on Saturdays from 09:00 to 17:00. If you like it, you can also stock up on beans to take home.
