Since it opened in 1987, Munchkins has remained one of the best hidden gems for those looking for relaxing café-style restaurants in London. They serve a wide selection of British classics, all in generous helpings. But while they’re a good pick for tourists looking for a pit-stop after visiting the British Museum across the road, they’re perfect for locals seeking a fuss-free, value for money meal with the kids.
As London restaurants go, it doesn’t get more central than Munchkins. Visitors to the bustling city will find the eatery just a tube ride to Holborn or Goodge Street and a quick four-minute walk away. As it’s located in Bloomsbury, locals will find it a welcome spot to grab a bite after strolling around the area’s many parks.
Easily one of the quirkiest places to eat in London, Munchkins has become a favourite spot for many travellers. Guests will notice vintage Coca Cola memorabilia and of course, a Wizard of Oz-themed yellow brick floor. Its customers come from all over the world and their menus are even translated into Japanese, Russian, Mandarin, Korean, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.
Fans of traditional British restaurants will feel right at home with Munchkin’s classics such as jacket potatoes, shepherd’s pie and fish and chips. While those looking for something a little more exotic can indulge in the likes of moussaka, chicken kiev and chili con carne. They’ve got pudding sorted too with carrot cake, ice cream and other treats.
For a taste of homecooked British favourites, a meal at Munchkins should tick all the right boxes.
