Best cafés in and around Milton Keynes
Coffee chains like Costa and Starbucks are where you’ll find most tourists. However, if you’re looking for a cup of coffee that has been made with love, you need to visit the many small but fabulous independent cafés in Milton Keynes. If you’re visiting from out of town, hotels in Milton Keynes near Xscape & Woburn Safari Park can provide you with a comfortable stay during your visit.
The coffee at independent coffee houses is certainly better than any international chain. The reason to visit the local café, instead of the big chains, is that you would get a flavour of the town’s culture and get to meet its people. Milton Keynes is popular even in London for its independent cafés and they are a must visit for all tourists here, says Mercure Milton Keynes Hotel, one of the town’s most attractive hotels.
Here’s a look at five must-try cafés in town.
1. Bogota Coffee Company – The Hub
This little gem in The Hub has flourished despite the many international coffee chains nearby. It is among the best-loved places in Milton Keynes. The coffee here is delicious and the place boasts great ambience and polite and friendly staff. What more can one ask for?
4. Carlo’s Coffee Kitchen – Markets
Carlo’s Coffee Kitchen is at Bletchley Market every Saturday from 9am until 4pm, also at Olney Farmer’s Market on the first Sunday of every month from 9am until 1pm.

3. Fourth & Fifth – Central Milton Keynes
