I’ve been very excited recently about Buckingham’s recent welcome onto my local eating consciousness with Nelson Street leaping to the heady heights of my ‘Places Rob tells people to go for a posh dinner out without spending enough money to make a Russian oil oligarch cry’, and that’s a very popular list let me tell you. But, that’s not where the fun ends, oh no. Because Nelson Street is only one half of Louis and Tom’s most excellent plan to haul Buckingham up by it’s blue rinsed, Daily Mail veined trouser braces. They have also decided that we need a new smoke house. And do you know what? They’re right.
There’s something really lovely about a cute little independent coffee shop. Somewhere to unwind, catch-up with good friends and enjoy honest homemade food. Sadly, due to the alarming growth of multi-national chains such as Starbucks, good independents are somewhat of a rarity in Milton Keynes – and that’s why I was so keen to head down to Heavenly Blends after stumbling across it on Twitter, particularly after spotting the promise of a thick American-style milkshake on the menu.
