“Mühlen Fleckerl” at Café Mühle: New tenant serves tasty Bavarian delicacies

Since the beginning of the summer holidays, Café Mühle at the Isar entrance of Hellabrunn Zoo has been run by Florian Lechner. With his specialties such as “Mühlen Fleckerl” (rye flatbread with toppings) and freshly-baked cakes, Lechner and his team offer visitors a range of regional home cooking all year round. The café also serves coffee from Emilo coffeehouse in Munich. Also, there is now a Stadtsparkasse cash machine at the Isar entrance, installed only a few days ago.

The café's terrace evokes a special charm, situated in a beautiful location right by the water and next to a shaded playground. For those who want to recharge their batteries in the late summer sunshine, Florian Lechner recommends his “Mühlen Fleckerl”. "They are freshly prepared by our baker throughout the day," says Lechner. "We offer fleckerl to suit every taste, from the classic version with bacon, to vegetarian flatbread with olives and feta or smoked salmon." Visitors with a sweet tooth can choose between a range of homemade cakes. Lechner not only takes great pride in the freshness and high quality of ingredients of his products, even the coffee he serves is from the speciality roaster Emilo in Munich. The coffee merchant was founded in 2012 in Munich.

In addition to Café Mühle, Lechner also has a concession in Kinderland at Hellabrunn Zoo, which he has operated since 2012. The toasted almonds sold at his Süßer Stadl (Sweet Barn) in Kinderland are highly popular with visitors. His new concession situated between the petting zoo and Isar entrance has enabled him to expand his range of culinary offerings. "I hope visitors will enjoy my new place - apart from fleckerl, they can also have coffee and cake, and take advantage of the free Wi-Fi access," adds Florian Lechner.

Another new development at the Isar entrance was the installation of a new Stadtsparkasse cash machine this weekend, right by the entrance of the zoo. "We are delighted that we can now offer visitors to the zoo this convenient service, in cooperation with our longstanding partner," says zoo director Rasem Baban. The cash machine is located just outside the zoo near the ticket office and is available 24 hours a day.
