Cafe am Beethovenplatz – Hotel Mariandl

Some dear friends from Tübingen were in town on Saturday for the Sigur Ros concert and I took them out for an early pre-gig dinner at Cafe am Beethovenplatz. The gothic building is unfortunately shrouded in scaffolding right now, but inside is still wonderfully elegant. It’s a lovely, charming place – and I can imagine it’s the perfect place to brunch. In fact, I’ve heard their breakfasts are top-notch. At one end of the restaurant, a cellist sits and plays until late in the afternoon, while people drink tea and tuck into some of their fantastic cakes.

This time it was all about good, hearty food on a very cold Saturday. I ate the Spinatnockerl, on a bed of fenchel and tomatoes. My boyfriend ordered the Schweinebraten, which (unfortunately) he rated as “ok”, and others enjoyed baked goat’s cheese, veggie lasagne and geschetzeltes. I was too stuffed for dessert, but the chocolate souffle looked really, really delicious.

It’s a lovely, nostalgic and traditional cafe/restaurant, just five minutes from Goetheplatz, and perfect for brunch, afternoon tea or dinner. I can’t vouch for the hotel, but if the charm’s anything like that of its restaurant, you’re in good hands.
