17 Places Every Student In Bedford Needs To Go Treat Themselves Immediately

If you’re a student in Bedford, here are 17 places you need to go when you need a pick me up from university life.

1. La Piazza

Located in the heart of Bedford, just at St. Paul’s Square, this is the perfect place to go for a mid-revision coffee and treat. Go on a sunny day and sit outside.

2. Coffee House Bedford 

An old-school gem, this place is warm, cosy and serves GREAT coffee.

Do not leave Bedford without trying this place. You won’t be disappointed by the atmosphere or the cakes!

4. Pavilion At The Park

Make sure to stop by the Pavilion – whether it’s for a quick bite or you just want to grab a coffee to go, you won’t regret it! The combination of quality hot drinks, amazing food and cakes, friendly staff and lovely location can make even the worst of days a lot better and brighter!

6. Meatcure

You likely know it for its burgers. However, what many people don’t realise is that they make amazing brunches on weekends. So whether it’s after a tough Friday night out, or just because you feel like it, make sure to go in on a Saturday or Sunday to grab an order of delicious American-style pancakes. Maple syrup? Blueberries? Bacon? They have it all.

From A+ milkshakes to AMAZING homemade cakes – you absolutely need to go here if you haven’t already.

11. Dessert Island

Every dessert lover’s dream. Whether you prefer ice cream, milkshakes, crepes or waffles – you can find pretty much anything here to satisfy your sweet tooth. You deserve this.

12. Délices

A French bakery and art gallery in one? 👏 It’s not the most student budget friendly place, so maybe save this for a special occasion, it will be worth it.

13. The Higgins Pantry

Although it’s more of a restaurant, the Higgins is a great place to grab yourself some sweet desserts and speciality coffees too. Try their Affogato al Caffe or Torta Della Nonna, a.k.a. ‘’Grandma’s cake’’ – you’ll love them both!

15. Mill Yard Cafe

Another great place to take your parents, Mill Yard Cafe is hidden in a dead-end road but well worth seeking out.

My favourite café in Bedford for sure. So relaxing.

16. The 1844 Coffee Company

Last but not least, not only is the coffee here excellent, they also run a suspended coffee scheme, so you can purchase another in advance for someone in need of a helping hand. Go, enjoy yourself.

Lovely start of the day coffee with love and fruit scone #coffee #bedford #morning
