Cafe

  • Dream job? What it’s really like to run a chocolate shop

    We know Willy Wonka's take, but how does a real choc factory work? Hiding engagement rings, chocolate corpses, and — yes! — nibbling chocolate are all part and parcel for the Rumsey's staff.

  • Local bakeries we love, in honour of GBBO 

    Bake Off is back on TV so time to drag out the food mixer. Can't be bothered? Fair enough! Put down that spatula and support these 11 drool-worthy bakeries instead.

  • Muddy Reviews: Black Goo, Thame

    There’s only so much home-brewed coffee and eggs on toast one can get excited about. Sometimes the day calls for the real thing. Precisely why Muddy’s Rachel Mcloughlin toddled on down to Black Goo in Thame.

  • Gotta Have It

    It's National Chocolate Week so we're legally obliged to scoff this lot. Introducing our new favourite brand plus the best local chocolate makers. YUM.

  • Fego, Marlow

    Attention brunchers! It's perfect poached eggs aplenty at Fego, a laid-back, family-friendly café in the middle of Marlow.

  • Fego, Beaconsfield

    Heading to Beaconsfield and need a steer on a cool café? Tap just here, and watch me pull Fego out of the hat. I know, it's magic!

  • Cool local cafés

    Looking for a decent flat white off the beaten track? From rural barns to funky industrial spaces, follow me...

  • Chiltern Firehouse… to Hartwell Café!

    Hartwell House café has upped its game, with a Chiltern Firehouse chef joining the team and brunch, lunch and afteroon tea all on the menu.

  • cafe front black and white striped marquee

    Gorge in Goring!

    The vintage-inspired interiors at Pierreponts cafe in Goring, Oxfordshire will please your inner granny, but the food offering is bang up to date.

  • Coffee under canvas

    You'll want to put this place on your go-to list! Nicholsons yurt café at its North Aston nursery is a tenty triumph.
