It’s been a while since I’ve done a review as nowhere has really stood out to me recently. That was until something very new and unique came to the small town of Stony Stratford, in Milton Keynes. French Affaire is a recent addition to Stony tucked away in O’Dells Yard. Although it is slightly hidden away, this French Restaurant/Creperie is not to missed!
This week’s Coffee Date series takes you through a number of my top finds in Bath. I recently spent a lovely weekend there with my Mum and found some gorgeous places for food. This includes a stop for a light lunch, a hidden gem for a sweet treat, and a magnificent Afternoon Tea. If you’re looking for some good munch in Bath read on…
We’ve reached the 10th post of my Coffee Date series! I’m so happy with how well this has gone and cannot wait to continue to write these posts. As I have said before, independent cafe and coffee shops are always going to give you better quality, service, and food for your money. It’s so important that we encourage these places to grow to not only support a decent cup of coffee and freshly baked cakes, but to help local businesses. My plan is to do more of these posts, with plenty more coming in the next few weeks so stay tuned! This week’s coffee date has gone to one of my local towns, Olney for the first time. I tried out a new addition to the high street- No.26
We’re in Bedford again! I find that the town is really encouraging independent business to pop up and thrive. This weeks Coffee Date is back with my boyfriend who actually chose the destination this week. Safe to say I should definitely trust him to help me with this more often as it was a great find. We went to the Pavilion in Bedford Park. We had great luck with the weather too as the sun came out for the first time in what feels like weeks. It was a great day for a warm, crisp winter walk around the park to finish off in The Pavilion made it a perfect Sunday trip. I love a walk and I love a bit of cake!
Where to start with Delices? Quite honestly I am struggling to know where as this shop blew me away this weekend. It’s honest and unique approach is a treasure I am yet to see anywhere else in the area. It is a place brimming with talent and beautiful food. If you want top quality ingredients, lovely service and authentic French cake you will fall in love with Delices. Tucked away near Bedford high street, the French shop sells a large variety of freshly made savoury and sweets which could grab anyone’s attention. (literally, I mean ANYONE) Continue reading “The Coffee Dates Series #6: Delices, Bedford”
It’s a been a while since I did a Coffee Date Series post. With a busy Christmas and being struck by a god awful cough as well, it was difficult to get out to coffee shops. But finally, I made it out and managed to get a catch up in with my friend from work in the process! This weekend I went to the brunch cafe Fourth and Fifth in Milton Keynes.

This weekend I went back to my old University town in Leicester- Clarendon Park! I and my boyfriend decided we would take his early birthday celebrations there for the weekend. We booked a gorgeous hotel and headed there on the Friday afternoon after work- the dream! With a trip away I thought it would be rude not to take my Coffee Date Series with me too. Leicester is full of independent coffee shops Continue reading “The Coffee Date Series #3: Nothern Cobbler, Leicester”
