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 is something a little different. Rather than just a cup of coffee and a bit of cake this coffee date also has a gorgeous walk involved. I love spending free time on the weekends having a walk. It blows the cobwebs away from the week before and is a great bit of exercise, especially if you’re not feeling the gym! But of course, there’s a cafe/tea room involved too…
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!
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 Coffee Date post has been a long time coming. Finally, my hometown of Newport Pagnell (in Milton Keynes area for those who don’t know) has opened an independent Coffee Shop which serves specialty coffee. This has been a long time coming for the high street, and patiently waited for by many! No boyfriend in sight my Mum helped me with this particular review- which means something beyond just ordering a brownie. (love you really) Continue reading “The Coffee Date Series #4: Out Of Office, Newport Pagnell”
If there’s one thing I love more than baking (and my cats) it is going out and eating someone else’s cake with a cup of coffee. Grabbing a cup of coffee and a sweet bite is always a great way when you fancy a catch up with a friend, or to blow the cobwebs on a Sunday afternoon. You can’t go wrong.
