My Favorite Café “Wir machen Cupcakes” in Munich

Café Wir machen Cupcakes in München

[Unpaid adverstisement]

Does your heart break into pieces every time you stroll through your city and you see yet again another “We are closing” sign? Especially if it is a café or bar? At least I am heart-broken to see how many have been affected by the crisis here in Munich. It is a relief for me that my favorite cafe “Wir machen Cupcakes” (which translates to we are making cupcakes) is still running and open. I do desperately hope that this cafe will make it through the crisis in one piece.

Yes, you will find tons of cupcakes in this cafe, obviously. However, you will also find macarons, cakepops, cronuts, and super beautiful cakes made from scratch. My favorite among the cupakes is the one called “Chocolate Decadence” for EUR 3.50 each. As a chocoholic this doesn’t come as a surprise. The owner Maria writes on her homepage that it’s the cafe’s intention is to make you feel at home and to introduce a sparkle of joy in your everyday life. I couldn’t have said it any better, regardless of whether I wanted to celebrate my bachelorette’s party here or whether I wanted to unwind with a little treat after work.

Maria took over the café in 2017, which has existed since 2010. First she baked all goods as a trained pastry chef. She is from Argentina and also worked in London. When she was offered the chance, she took it and did not regret it ever since, it was love at first sight. When I asked her how she is doing during this crisis, she admitted that she was scared at the beginning, yet also touched to see how many people asked for cake orders and the like, and how many switched to a cupcake to go. Yes, the people in Munich stick together.

If you are currently located in Munich, you have the option of either picking up your favorite treats or delivery (EUR 25 minimum). When I gave the cafe my last visit in May 2020, I simply took the cupakes home (in a very cute box). If you want to try out this café, this is what you need to know.
