35 years ago we used to come to Finchley to go to a specialist children's shoe shop. (They had very narrow feet). Afterwards we would go to Chix Chox cafe/restaurant for our lunch.
My daughter is now 41 and recently had a birthday. I asked her what would she like as a gift or would she prefer to have a meal or both!
She said do you know what mum I would love to go back to the Chix Chox cafe/restaurant. As a child it was the highlight of our shoe shopping trip.
Now I always say you can never go back, but this is what she wanted.
We went last Saturday lunchtime 5th of July complete with my daughters own small children.
Well you can go back.
From the moment we arrived we were well looked after. We needed a high chair this was brought quickly. Menus arrived and the waiter said here is a special menu for the young man. My six year old grandson. He beamed. We ordered starters all having something different. We asked could the children's meals be brought with our starters. No problem
The house red wine was very acceptable.
All our main meals were very good as was the desert the highlight of my daughters trip the pancakes she remembered from her childhood.
The waiter even took time to chat to my grandson about his panini stickers and the worldcup.
All in all we enjoyed our return and have now decided to buy the grandchildren their shoes in Finchley so we can visit Chix Chox sooner rather than later!
Can't understand lexakit's remarks sounds like they must have come on an off day or went to a different place!
