21 cafés where you can have a delicious breakfast
Brunch – the hybrid between breakfast and lunch – is made for everyone who can’t really decide on Sundays whether they want to start the day with breakfast or lunch. Sure, one or the other may find brunch decadent, skewered or old-fashioned and mock it as an all-you-can-eat flat rate for the commoner.
But we think: It can be nice to feed the hangover from the previous day with a lavish buffet. And such a culinary get-together with friends and family is fun anyway – especially if you don’t neglect the all-you-can-eat rule number 1: "Take only as much as you can."

There are not really good breakfast cafes in Mülheim like sand by the sea. Nevertheless or precisely because of this, there is a shop that everyone in this part of Schäl Sick knows: Café Jakubowski. Over the years, the café in the old building on the corner between Mülheimer Freiheit and Buchheimer Straße has developed into a real institution. When it comes to breakfast, you get pretty much everything your heart desires, from sandwiches, eggs and porridge to cornflakes and pancakes. Brunch on Sundays and public holidays is also popular (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.).

© Christin Otto Generous portions at low prices in the Borsalino
Whether pasta, salad or casserole – in the Borsalino on Zülpicher Straße all dishes have one thing in common: the portions are huge and the prices are low. The extensive menu mainly includes German and Italian cuisine. Since people like to work here often with cream, the shop is not for the gourmet. But if you just want to eat well and cheaply, you’ve come to the right place. At lunchtime, selected pizzas and pasta are available for four euros. If you like it a little healthier, we can recommend the decorative salad with turkey breast strips and roasted onions – delicious and filling. There is also a large selection of cocktails that only cost four euros. The Borsalino has brunch time on Sundays and public holidays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. – then a large, colorful buffet with various delicacies from scrambled eggs, fruit salad and tiramisu to pasta, sushi and schnitzel is served.
