Cafés

  • 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? No, quite right. Here are some brilliant bakeries instead.

  • Review: Rumsey’s chocolaterie, Thame

    In need of a choccy fix? Er, always! The much-loved chocolaterie and café is offering local delivery (ditto the Wendover branch). Read our updated review here.

  • Mollie's Diner, Oxfordshire

    Best cheap eats in Bucks and Oxon

    Caned the credit card but still fancy a dinner date? What you need is a Muddy-approved cheap but chic dining spot. Table for two, madame?

  • 13 places to eat yourself slim

    No need to put a lock on the fridge and banish all fun for January - we've scoured Bucks & Oxon for the best 'skinny' places to pig out in peace.

  • 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!

  • 31 Below, Marylebone

    You can keep your Oxford, Bond and Kensington High Streets - it's Marylebone High Street and its new watering hole, 31 Below, all the way for me!

  • Sweet dreams

    One scoop or two? OK, three it is! Dessert cafés are all the rage and your little people will love Creams in Xscape MK for its bubble waffles and Oreo-everything. Buckle in for the sugar rush.

  • Scandi foodie invasion!

    Love a bit of Scandi style? No need to head into Shoreditch, there's an influx of Nordic cool around these parts with a whole raft of new groovy cafés and bakeries.

  • Cool local cafés
