Minerva Bistro

The Minerva Bistro is located on the ground floor of the new building of the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Riedberg, and it is open to the public. Currently, due to the governmental restrictions, Minerva continues to serve food to go (please see below).

The Minerva bistro offers a weekly seasonal menu of innovative, high-quality, healthy and attractively priced cuisine. You can find the bistro’s entrance in the foyer of the new MPI building at Max von Laue Str. 4 and on sunny days you can eat on the terrace and enjoy the garden. 

Minerva is open from 8:00 to 17:00 Monday-Friday and also offers various breakfast varieties (including delicious avocado toast, eggs benedict) and lunch service from 11:30 - 15.00 hours (during the pandemic).

For our public guests:

Please call to pre-order your food, pick up is at the garden entrance. Please do not try to enter the building. Give Minerva another ring to inform you have arrived and your order will be brought to the door. The Minerva team appreciates your understanding and we look forward to keep serving you!
