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…
This week’s Coffee Date is back in my favourite town to find an independent coffee shop to relax in. Me and my Mum decided to try out Vanilla Tree in Bedford for a lunch and cakey treat. I have walked past Vanilla Tree so many times and been tempted by the bagel menu every time, desperate to try them. I finally did, and it’s safe to say it is now a favourite find of mine! If you’re a bagel, brunch, or cake lover- you need to read on!
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…
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 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”
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”
Monday blues have hit me hard. The temperature has dropped and having to head out 5 mins early to de-ice the car isn’t sitting well with me. There are a lot of things I’d rather be doing this time of year and one of them is being sat in a cosy coffee shop with a warm drink. Continue reading “The Coffee Date Series #2: Coffee With Art, Bedford”
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.
