5 of the Best Breakfasts in Milton Keynes

A big breakfast is the best way to start the day and we have 5 of the best cafes and restaurants to try out in Milton Keynes.

Phoenix Kitchen

The Claydon Estate, Estate Office, Middle Claydon, Buckinghamshire, MK18 2EX

Situated in the beautiful grounds of The Claydon Estate, the Phoenix Kitchen is a hidden gem serving afternoon teas, light lunches and daily specials. Their breakfast menu is exceptional with sautéed spinach, mushrooms and oven baked tomatoes taking centre stage in their vegetarian breakfast. Serving fresh, local, seasonal food in stunning historic surroundings, what more could you ask for.

Bean in Stony

75 High St, Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes MK11 1AY

This once tiny cafe has recently undergone a large extension to its floor area, doubling the size and what a joy that is because you’re always sure to get a table now. Situated in one of the oldest arcades in Stony Stratford, Bean in Stony is a family run business known locally for their breakfast and brunch. The original building was a chemist and the drawers and shelving which held herbs and medicine still exist to this day. The charm of the Bean in Stony is like no other in Milton Keynes and their 6 items breakfast is a steal for £6.50, which includes unlimited tea and coffee and toast!


The Square ,Woburn Sands Milton Keynes, MK17 8SY

One thing we’re not short of in Milton Keynes are passionate restaurateurs delivering high quality food in beautiful surroundings and Nonna’s is another one of these. Located close to the main high street, in the pretty town of Woburn Sands, Nonna’s has become a firm favourite for residents across Milton Keynes. Whether you’re after a traditional English breakfast or looking for something a little different from Nonna’s signature breakfast menu, such as the Bella Melt or Tuna Time, there is something for everyone. With a choice of meals for the children and even a breakfast pizza, Nonna’s is definitely on our recommended list of breakfasts to try in Milton Keynes. 

The Game Changer Kitchen Cafe

Unit 3 Knebworth Gate, Giffard Park, Milton Keynes MK14 5QD

Another independent cafe that serves home cooked food, using local produce is The Game Changer Kitchen Cafe run by Alessandra, a mum of two. The breakfast and brunch menu is epic and with homemade hollandaise sauce, you know you’re getting the real deal here. Located in Giffard Park in a fairly modern building, the decadent interior makes you feel warm and relaxed. The coffee is delicious, they use local Wooden Hill Roastery coffee beans which can also be purchased in the cafe, should you want to recreate it at home.

Fourteen Sky Bar & Restaurant 

Four Hundred, Marlborough Gate, Milton Keynes, MK9 3FP

While the other recommendations are predominantly about the breakfasts, this one is based on the stunning views to be had at Fourteen Sky Bar & Restaurant. Any food would taste stunning with the vistas you get on the 14th floor! The 360 degree panoramic views over Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire are like no other in Milton Keynes. The restaurant and bar are located on the top floor of the newest hotel in Milton Keynes, Hotel La Tour. An experience like no other, come and start your day with a feast for the eyes.
