The second store opened in April 2005 at Sendlinger Tor. See the related chat topic: 2nd Starbucks opens in Munich

Since then another store has been opening in Munich every couple of months. Current count is six. See the related forum topic: New Starbucks openings around Munich.

Being from Seattle , I will give my good friends in Munich fair warning: If you allow the cancer of the Starbucks shithouses to metastisize through your beautiful city , kiss your favorite tiny kaffe und brotzite hangouts goodbuy. Starbucks is not just a coffee house,it is a distroyer of cultures! Remember- Every time you put to your lips a starbucks product , you are kissing the ass of an American corperation the dosent give one shit about our beloved Bavaria.

I'm also from Seattle, and in addition to Devon's excellent points I would like to say this: their business practices are evil, and the coffee is crap.

I would like to report that, happily, the Starbucks next to the Opera House and the Sacher Hotel in Vienna has recently TANKED. Talk about sacrilege. It's like trying to hock squeeze cheese in France. Anyway I can only hope that the same scenario will play out in this fair city.

this is all serious bullshit. their coffee is great and their business practices are some of the best in the US. They are named year after year to be one of the best employers to work for. (at least above 10000 employee companies)

Starbucks have the best coffee. Its as simple as that. They won't put the small coffee houses out of business if they don't make good coffee.

If German culture can't withstand a cup of American coffee, what is going to happen next year when Budweiser sponsors the Fussball WM? You people are just silly.

I see that a 3rd Starbucks is soon to open in Munich. This one will be on Rosental, near Viktualienmarkt.

Better than Tchibo. And I can sit down.

I have to agree with "-A", "CodeRed" and "numda" on this one. I love the small cafe atmosphere (which i haven't been able to find in munich yet by the way; any suggestions?). Starbucks does have good business practices, great work standards on every level and do not put small cafe's out of business.

You could not find a "small café atmosphere" in Munich except for Starbucks? That's sad (and strange, too). Try Cafe Platzhirsch on Viktualienmarkt. If you don't like there's a Starbucks right across the street.
