Afternoon tea with a twist at Revolution, Milton Keynes

I was lucky enough to have two baby showers. After the main event at Cake Secret, I met a couple of my nursery mum friends for afternoon tea with a twist at Revolution.

It’s another place I’d not been to before, but it’s at the Xscape in Milton Keynes. Probably best known for their cocktails and bar scene, we settled down with soft drinks before taking on the Rev’s version of afternoon tea. While waiting for me to arrive (late, as usual – but I couldn’t get parked and then couldn’t find the bar), the girls filled in some baby prediction cards, which I added to the others once I got home.

We had the standard afternoon tea. Savouries and sweets were brought to the table separately – and there are no cake stands here! We devoured mini cheeseburger sliders, filled with lettuce and Rev’s relish (which was lush); crispy fried chicken (we only had one mini fillet each and I would have loved to had more); and jalapeno poppers (deep fried jalapeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese), which weren’t as spicy as I was expecting! We also had two portions of cheesy fries between us – which was lucky, as I couldn’t have managed a whole portion to myself, no matter how good that cheese sauce was. Plus, we needed to save room for the puddings.

My oh my, what a platter we were treated to! For a dessert fiend like me, it was heaven. Although annoyingly, there were four waffles and four portions of brownie when there were three of us, which raised arguments over who would have the leftovers – not me, having been diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I knew this would always be a treat and heavy on the carbs and sugar, but surprisingly, my after-meal reading was fine. I was also able to enjoy small quantities of the desserts on offer.

We tucked into mini cheesecakes – these were inverted cheesecakes, as the base was a vanilla cheesecake mix, while the tops were sprinkled with Biscoff biscuits. I love how they were presented in China teacups. I thought these would be my favourite (as cheesecake has to be my favourite dessert), but I was actually quite disappointed. The waffles more than made up for it though – they were heavenly. I love a sugar waffle, and these came served with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce. The brownies were lovely too – chocolatey rich, yet light and very moreish… I wish I could have had two!

We all had a shot too – well I had a non-alcoholic one! I think the alcoholic ones were salted caramel and Jammy Dodger (I can’t remember from memory), and mine was pink in colour. Truth be told, it tasted like raspberry Krusha!

The service was efficient, until we needed to get the bill – although the girls had paid upfront for the afternoon tea and we just needed to pay for our drinks, which they also treated me to. For a less-than-traditional afternoon tea, this was a bit of fun and I’d definitely go back to Revolution for cocktails and bar snacks, or a bottomless brunch with the girls.
