Our group has recently decided to stop limiting ourselves to buffet-only brunch places and branch out a litte. The first non-buffet brunch we had was at Maingold Cafe, near to Konstablewache.
I had the muesli which I LOVED. I can’t talk about my love for this enough. It was only 5 euros, it has a small layer of muesli at the bottom then LOADS of fruit and nuts on top. It was SO good.
Other people had to order the more expensive, massive sets in order to get the range they enjoy from a buffet brunch. This lot shown above was about 23 euros. Overall, the meals were reasonably priced for the sizes, I think.
They even had my favourite – Afri Cola! A sign of a classy establishment!
Brunch at Maingold Cafe needs to be booked – this place is always packed no matter what time of day it is. We booked a table for 10 people and since a few were sick only 6 turned up. The sofas and coffee table they gave us to eat at fitted us 6 people exactly – 10 people would never have been able to sit happily there. The staff are always pretty slow here as they are run off their feet.
This has been my favourite brunch in a long while, though my friends didn’t quite agree. For me, it was healthier than over eating, the thing I ate was cheap and healthy, and I liked the decor inside (mismatched and full of character). My friends didn’t appreciate the lack of choice on the menu, and thought it was a little on the expensive side.
You can find Maingold Cafe at Zeil 1, 60313 Frankfurt am Main. Remember to book.
