While on a trip to Aldeburgh in Suffolk we visited the restaurant Munchies. Not a good move. On a specials board outside was stated we could have a baked potato and salad for £3:95 We entered the premises and without looking at the menu ordered the special from the board.

Hi I served you and you were both lovely and you both enjoyed your jacket potatoes. You were a pleasure to serve. Sadly you read the takeaway price that is on the blackboard outside. You were given menus when you sat down. Jane explained to you that the £3.95 price advertised on the blackboard outside is for takeaway (not that... More

We have frequented this cafe regularly, always a pleasant welcome from the female staff, last time we were clearly inconveniencing the male member of staff at being customers.

A group of 6 of us popped in to warm up on a windy day at the seaside. The staff were very accomodating and found us a big enough space at the rear of the tiny shop. Lovely coffees and the tasty caramel biscuit that accompanied each drink was a bonus!

3 friends and I visited Munchies for lunch on Thursday 4 th May. One of the party ordered a deal of soup and a pasty but the waitress argued there was no deal, the toilets were filthy and the waste bins over flowing onto the floor. Finally the young man behind the counter who was serving the soup stuck his... More

Hi Ruth Thank you for your review. The quick lunch Soup and a Sandwich cannot be replaced with other menu items such as Cornish Pasties. We do a soup combo with a sandwich as we throw or give away the unsold sandwiches at the end of everyday. Many of the other menu items have a longer 2/3 day shelf life... More

Called-in for impromptu coffee, hot chocolates and cakes during Easter holiday stay in Aldeburgh. All were good and friendly, efficient service from staff. Kids and dog both made very welcome. Also bought fresh take away croissants from here on a couple of occasions.

We visited during the Easter holidays with the kids. We were hoping to buy some sandwiches and eat in, but they were so busy with no available seating that we decided to get some to eat on the beach instead.

Hi, Easter was insane, especially the Easter Sunday & Monday ! It's the only weekend in the year that we are pushed to the limits with a full cafe and a que outside for 9 hours, it's stressful, but fun.

As you walked past ! Honestly is this what TripAdvisor has come too ! Maybe they were talking about what an amazing breakfast they just had compared to the worst breakfast they ever had at another time or place? Assumptions, based on walking past Munchies and overhearing a conversation. Honestly you gave us a 2 Star rating and you only... More

Popped in here for a quick lunch time bite with family. Great menu with loads of great value choices. Fast service with a smile and a New Yorker salt beef sandwich and homemade soup that did not disappoint. Pretty sure you could eat here every day of the month and try something new. We will be back!
