Munchy's is located on Queens Road by St Stephens roundabout.
As much effort went into the sign as it had the food.
As you enter order your food at the counter on the left, better still leave and go eat somewhere else.
The seats are comfortable but the tables are much too high so you will feel like you have shrunk.
The coffee and biscuit were nice
The toast was ok.
The cooked breakfast was bad, very bad!
The egg was the root to all evil and underneath those lukewarm beans was where the sea of egg snot lurked.
It is a freezing cold Friday morning and the city is going to be rammed with Christmas shoppers but im in the mood for a fry up, not a cafe bar fry up but something more greasy spoon like. I walked past "Moonlight Cafe" on Magdalen Street but again couldn't quite bring myself to go in. The Slug & lettuce was never gonna do fried bread so I decided to try Munchy's on Queens Road...
Upon entering - The place is a fair size with plenty of tables and a counter on the left. Everything seemed clean but I had an immediate feeling I had made a bad choice but decided to persevere anyway. I dithered at the table wondering if somebody would come and take my order, nobody did so I headed to the counter. 5/10
Service - When I ordered I was given a tray with cutlery and a mug of coffee by the lady at the counter. I took a seat before realising there was no ketchup and sat down again. Oh bugger.. No sugar on the table, up to the counter and back again. The toast arrived shortly after that followed by the fry up. 4/10
Contents - 2 sausages, 3 bacon, 1 fried egg, grilled tomato, mushrooms, beans, french fries, toast & butter, coffee and a biscuit. 7/10
Presentation - As soon as it arrived the lack of quality was evident, the person who had cooked it clearly couldn't give a shit and couldn't even fry an egg. 4/10
The food - Luke warm mega economy sausages that tasted a bit like chewing on foam were moored up at the edge of the massive ocean of slightly warm beans, these covered the secret weapon that was going to destroy everything, the egg. The egg was completely uncooked and snotty on top, the snotty mess seemed to leak everywhere. The bacon was undercooked and dripping with old cooking oil. The mushrooms were so deep in their own oil the only saving grace was that the raw egg white couldn't get a look in. Average tomato slices and cold french fries finished off this nightmare on a plate. 2/10
Value for money - I wasted £6 1/10
Veggie option - It clearly states on the sign outside "We cater for vegetarians and children"
Overall - The place looks reasonable from outside and is clean inside. The staff seem fairly friendly and it is in a prime location near the bus station. Why the hell they are serving such dire food is beyond me!? Im sure that most establishments have pride in what they are serving the customer. The person who cooked that unforgivable fried egg must have decided it was ok when it was plopped onto the plate. I have said it before and I will say it again, cheap ingredients and terrible fried eggs are never going to please customers or make a cafe stand out from the crowd. By far my worst experience so far. The biscuit was nice though! 3/10
