“value for money. great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

We love the Munchybox! We go in here quite often for a meal. Plenty of choice on the menu. traditional classics such as lasange and cottage pie, all day breakfast, and a wide selection of desserts.

Prices are very reasonable for the food you receive. The portions are great. Not stingy. Think the potato on my cottage pie might have been 'smash' but that would be my only slight moan. Service is always quick and friendly.

Like the decor. American diner style. Very fetching.

I'll be back!

Hi, thanks for such a positive review, it is much appreciated when people take the time to come and type up their reviews and feedback.

As regards the mashed potatoes, we can assure you they are not "smash" or anything other than potatoes grown just up the road at Lidstones Farms Galmpton. Perhaps one of the chefs got a bit over enthusiastic with the potato masher on the day you ate there, we have noted it and will keep an eye on it.

Thanks again :)

“Friendly Service and Good Food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Ordered a takeaway evening meal. Friendly Staff, and in general food was good, especially the delicious burgers. Alongside our burgers we ordered nachos. I am a big fan of nachos in general, but i was a little dissapointed; they used cheese flavoured chips (personally i think the chips should be plain/salted) and there wasn't much cheese. On the plus side each portion came with three dips, guacamole, salsa and cream. The guacamole was good and so was the salsa, but the cream would have been nicer if it was sour cream.

In summary, the food was good (in price as well) and it seems like a really nice cafe. With regards to the nachos I would definitely be prepared to pay a bit more if it meant the few improvements above.

Hi Jacob, thank you for the general thumbs up.

Re, the 'cheese' nachos, you'll be pleased to know our nacho's are now plain (seasoned only), there is a full ladle of freshly melted cheese on every portion served, I can't think why you received "not much cheese" sorry about that.

The cream is in fact Creme fraiche, a slightly less sour but more acidic/tart version of sour cream.

“This is a must for Kingsbridge visitors.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

Quite by chance my Wife and I visited Munchybox cafe this afternoon.
We had their "Roast of the day". The meal, Pork with crackling, beautiful fresh vegetables
together with excellent gravy and apple sauce, was the best roast meal we have eaten
away from home. It was an absolutely first class meal.
The Cafe was spotlessly clean, staff were friendly and very attentive. We felt very welcome.
This was an inexpensive meal of quality.
We will most certainly return.
We have no hesitation in recommending this excellent venue.

“HIDDEN GEM ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Hidden Gem in the heart of Kingsbridge. This cafe is a little cracker and the food is lovely. Plenty of choices on the menu and good quality food. Every time we visit Kingsbridge we always have lunch here. To be honest think the only reason my husband likes visiting Kingsbridge is because of this cafe. It's a shame there isn't one in a Plymouth. If you visit this cafe you will not be disappointed and will struggle to resist not visiting again.
