French Affaire, Stony Stratford
French Affaire is one of my favourite spots in Milton Keynes and it’s one that is gaining so much popularity. Tucked behind Stony’s high street in Odell’s Yard, this little café serves up some seriously good food in an absolutely gorgeous setting! I’ve featured French Affaire in my guide to the most Instagrammable locations in MK and I’m sure you can see why!
The pastel interior, rose gold cutlery and beautifully presented food make this the ultimate destination for brunch with the girls. The food most definitely isn’t style over substance either: The eggs royale crépe is my go-to and is a filled cheese and salmon crépe topped with hollandaise sauce and a poached egg. Definitely worth a visit. Make sure you check out their evening menu too!

The Greedy Italian, Fenny Stratford
The Greedy Italian is one of my favourite restaurants in Milton Keynes. In fact, it’s probably the number one recommendation I give people. It has already featured in my best restaurants for date night guide for its lovely atmosphere and epic food and now I’m bringing it to you as one my favourite brunches in Milton Keynes!
From a full English to pancakes to fancy eggs on toast and mouth-watering specials, you will absolutely find something you fancy for breakfast. The food here is seriously good and you can really taste the quality of the ingredients and everything is truly made with love! Pictured above is the vegetarian alarm clock which I didn’t make very vegetarian with the addition of bacon! They also let you order extra hash browns with your breakfast dish – sorry not sorry – so this is just another reason why The Greedy Italian wins at brunch.

The Green Elephant Café, Central Milton Keynes
The Green Elephant Café is a great destination not only for coffee, but brunch too. Located in Central Milton Keynes in the MK Community Foundation building, this makes a great space for a coffee shop office or you could take your coffee into nearby Fred Roche Gardens in the summer. There is a beautiful mural on the wall painted by local artist, Jesita Patel, which is stunning and really brings the café to life.
Food-wise, the full English is great and features locally sourced ingredients, most notable bacon from Woburn Country Foods. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, there are plenty of options for you as well.
Oh, and make sure you save room for the banana bread which also happens to be vegan. It is nothing short of legendary!

No.31, Woburn Sands
No.31 in Woburn Sands is now owned by Shane and Aaron Clarke of The Brother’s Supper. The brunch option is pretty great and it’s one of the few places in MK that actually does a bottomless brunch. Chilled atmosphere and good food make it a very good destination for a weekend. The full English (Called ‘The No.31’ on the menu) is brilliant and well worth it. Lighter options include eggs royale, benedict of Turkish eggs.

Nonna’s, Woburn Sands
Nonna’s is one of my favourite restaurants in Milton Keynes and it’s my go-to if I am looking for somewhere a little classier for dinner or a date night – the food is honestly amazing and Damien is such an innovative chef. It offers one of the best brunches in Milton Keynes (as certified by MKFM!)
My favourite dish is the Italian Benedict which is a twist on a brunch classic. Proscuitto ham, poached eggs and basil hollandaise top toasted sourdough bread. Oh, and did I mention they also have halloumi fries on the brunch menu? Winning!
Find it: The Square, Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes MK17 8SY
Bottomless Brunch Option? Yes. Available on weekends. £20 per person for unlimited prosecco or Moretti (add on to brunch menu)
Olé Tapas Bar & Restaurant, Wolverton
Olé Tapas Bar & Restaurant has already featured in my Date Night guide for its epic tapas and is definitely one of the best spots in the area. They also serve a damn good brunch! You can find everything from a full English to eggs benedict with a Spanish twist. We were recommended the sharing brunch by Juan and as you can see, it’s pretty epic!
For £19.95 you get a Spanish twist on the full English served in a paella dish. Four rashers of bacon, two fried eggs, two sausages,m two chorizo, potatoes, Padron peppers, mushrooms, beans and black pudding plus sourdough bread. AND BREATHE. Yep, it’s epic but it is perfect for sharing! This little spot in Wolverton is definitely worth a visit – you won’t be disappointed.
Find it: Number 60 The Triangle, Wolverton Park Road, Wolverton Park, Milton Keynes, MK12 5FJ
Bottomless brunch option? No – not yet!

Super Sausage, Towcester
The Super Sausage on the A5 between Stony Stratford and Towcester is the ultimate greasy spoon. There’s nothing fancy about it, but it’s what makes it full of character. This biker pit stop cafe is everything you probably want on a hangover. Strong tea, huge fry ups for under £8 and pints of freshly squeezed orange juice. I wouldn’t recommend heading here every day – one meal is enough to clog your arteries, but it’s such a solid fry up and has a very worthy place amongst the best brunches in Milton Keynes.
Find It: 35 Watling St, Potterspury, Towcester NN12 7QD
Bottomless Brunch option? No.
Upper Regency Café, Central Milton Keynes
Upper Regency has been around for a while, but it is a bit of a hidden gem that is well worth a visit. The owners are former restaurant owners and chefs, who moved to MK from Hertfordshire. The food is all made fresh to order and it’s a great little stop for brunch. Located just opposite Fred Roche Gardens, it has a lovely view of the city centre and is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Try their eggs royale with zesty hollandaise and runny poached eggs. The smoothies are also delicious!
Find it: 222 Upper Fifth St, Milton Keynes MK9 2HR
Bottomless Brunch Option? No.
The Whisk Kitchen, Woburn Sands
The Whisk Kitchen in Woburn Sands is a brunch spot-cocktail bar hybrid serving pancakes and cocktails all day. What could be better!? You can pick and mix your toppings on your crepes and there is plenty whether you like sweet or savoury. Salmon and poached eggs is a classic for me and the pancakes are PACKED with filling!
I’ve yet to try the cocktails, but the range is extensive and there is a fabulous range of delicious juices on offer too if you’re visiting on a hangover…!
Find it: 51 High St, Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes MK17 8QY
Bottomless Brunch Option? No, but there are plenty of cocktails on the all day menu if you want to make it a boozy brunch!
Wrap it & Run, Wolverton
Wrap it & Run is a breakfast wrap delivery service run by husband and wife team, Gemma and Joe, in Wolverton. Using fresh, high-quality ingredients and local producers, these wraps are the perfect accompaniment to a lazy weekend or for blitzing that hangover. The wraps are so delicious and are full to the brim without being soggy.
I would recommend the Big Boss wrap or, if you’re feeling really hungry, the Bog Daddy Boss Wrap! Each order comes with a bottle of fruit juice and you can order extras like hashbrowns or add Reasons to Season sauces. You can order via Facebook or their website and delivery is available within a 5-mile radius of Wolverton or you can collect your wraps.
Find it: Wolverton (Delivery or collection)
Bottomless Brunch Option? No as it’s a takeaway but there’s nothing stopping you from creating it at home!
