    Excellent local cafe. Came here straight off a transatlantic flight - just needed somewhere to work and have a few coffee's to strive off the jet lag.
    They have great coffee, better than average panini's and best of all around 10 street side tables outside. They have a pretty location, sunny on both sides and just opposite some pretty old antique shops and an art gallery.
    This is a good local haunt frequented by the local yummy mummy's and students alike. Their own brand packaged coffee is also worth a look. Roast by London's Coffee plant it's a good alternative to the staple brands in the supermarkets.

    Munson's has become a regular place to go for me. The sandwiches and cakes are all made on the premises and are delicious. The selection of drinks is unique with interesting refreshing options like my favourite, Sicilian Lemonade.

    The staff are friendly and helpful, and the quirky atmosphere makes this much more enjoyable than a big chain.

    Finally, they have a great corner location and on a summer's day it's lovely sitting outside.

    It's not cheap, but I think it's well worth it.

    Munsons is a great coffee shop with a really nice feel to the place. It is always packed with regulars enjoying the coffee cakes. Munsons also make killer bagels and sandwiches which make a nice light lunch.

    There is always some nice music in the background that adds to the atmosphere. The range is vast from dad rock to dance  depending on who is at the controls.

    There is loads of seating so while always busy you can always find a table somewhere.

    In the summer I love sitting outside watching the world go by.

    As Scott A said the place ain't cheap but it is worth a trip.

    I would have given the place 5 stars but I sometimes feel the place can be a little cliquey, but  the drinks and food are miles better than any of the chains.

    A local gem.

    Munson's is easily the best coffee in Ealing. It's a little bit of a walk south from the main drag of Uxbridge Rd/the Broadway, but it's worth it. The steady stream of local folks in and out tells the tale.

    Munson's is small and cozy, with only a few seats inside and few out on the pavement in good weather. The staff are very friendly, make some quality sandwiches, have some nice pastries, and even play good music (blues the last time I was in). But most importantly they make awesome organic, fair-trade coffee (I usually stop in the morning, and so get a cappuccino).

    They're happy to sell their coffee beans, too, ground or unground. Most varieties are fair-trade and organic.

    If you prefer independent, quality places to grab a cup, this is the spot in Ealing.

    I'd never been to this place before: I bought a sandwich, which was fairly good and came with some nice salad. Can't really complain about the quality of the food  it wasn't amazing, but it was decent.
    On the other hand, I found the customer service to be extremely poor. I usually don't care much about the service in a cafe, but without actually having any disagreement with them I felt like I was being treated like a complete idiot simply because I'd never visited the place before. I've worked in customer service before and it's extremely easy to fall into that the public are all idiots trap just because of a few bad experiences. There's no excuse for it and I certainly won't be rushing back.

    I was there this crisp bright Summer morning.

    The coffee was very nice. The Double Espresso was perfect. It was so nice I wanted a second and thought that I would be bouncing around the office like a yo yo.

    Very nice and a perfect place to chill watch the world go by.

    This place also makes fresh sandwiches has good pastries and certainly know how to make coffee.

    Very good.

    I was not that impressed. It's a nice place and the coffee is good, not great.

    Munsons has recently expanded by taking over the shop next door, and has now opened a Deli in the old premises.
    The paninis, bagels, focaccias and ciabattas are always amazing with a range of different intersting fillings which they will toast on request, and the service is prompt and friendly. It is true to say that you will pay a little more than some other cafes, but frankly I'd rather have fresh, tasty food which I want to eat. We travel from Hanwell at least once a week to sample it.
    I'd never consider touching food before buying it and am glad that they tell off those that do - it seems reasonable to me (see the previous recommendation).
    Definitely somewhere I'd recommend, especially now they have the extra space and additional tables.

    Good coffee, cakes and sandwiches, but over-priced. Hygiene around the preparing of food openly poor. Blackboard outside with daily messages such as You are an illusion designed to appeal  in a cosy sort of way  to the Ealing surburbanites who frequent. Overseen by family owners who affect insouciance, and who appear more interested in collecting money than providing a high standard of service. Beneath the apparently warm veneer of this cafe there beats a cold heart.

    I was a regular at Munson's for years and I'm sad to say it's really gone downhill. I could always take or leave the mood-swings of the baristas, but on recent visits I'm left wondering why I bother to come. Where to start? I've had food poisoning three times from the sandwiches, and I've witnessed their shoddy approach to food hygiene. The coffee is so hit and miss now - actually miss and miss. There's no constancy with the baristas. The coffee is either too hot or too weak. And served with 'couldn't give a toss' attitude. Ok if the coffee is exceptional, but it isn't. It really isn't. They're really reluctant to accommodate people. God forbid you are a pram-wielding-soya-decaf-type - you'll be turfed out pronto. If, however, you're a faux-media-wannabe with no taste, you'll love it. Do yourself a favour and get a flat-white from Notes, Music & Coffee and see what you're missing: qype.co.uk/place/1642927…
