The best of summer's new food and drink openings

Sunny terraces, fresh salads and a cold glass of fizz – it's the season to dine al fresco at some of our newest food spots.


The Little Orange Van at Bicester Village

Savour the taste of summer at Bicester Village’s new pop-up, The Little Orange Van. Serving fresh, made-to-order drinks from morning ‘til night, start your day with a revitalising juice or smoothie, then relax into the evening with a refreshing glass of fizz on the patio seating.

WE LOVE: Locally sourced, the freshly pressed juices and smoothies use seasonal ingredients from the Blenheim Palace estate.



Ladurée at La Vallée Village

An expansion and relocation sees a beautiful new coffee shop from Ladurée open next to Sandro in La Vallée Village; one that’s reminiscent of its flagship boutique in the heart of Paris. Complete with quaint bistro sets and a charming macaron cart, you can’t resist a stop to sample traditional pâtisserie treats and macarons, along with a delicious new menu of hot drinks.

WE LOVE: Find a seat with loved ones under the pretty pastel awning on a warm summer’s day to easily while away an afternoon.



Cova at Ingolstadt Village

Located next to the decadent Bollicine&Co. Champagne Bar, you’ll find an equally admirable ice cream cart from artisan gelateria, Cova. Priding themselves on carefully sourced produce (including hazelnuts plucked straight from Piedmont), discover a selection of classic ice cream flavours – including vanilla cream, chocolate and pistachio – along with frozen mango, lemon, strawberry and raspberry sorbets.

WE LOVE: Chocolate and raspberry, strawberry and vanilla…order mixed scoops for a delightful symphony of flavours.



La Verbena de Mentidero at Las Rozas Village

Picturesque mountain vistas, buoyant music and iconic tapas dishes. Imbuing a sense of great summers past, Las Rozas Village’s new terrace, La Verbena de Mentidero, is the place to relax with loved ones. Akin to the tranquillity of a quiet Spanish village, the new terrace forms part of the Village’s celebrations of all things local this summer.

WE LOVE: Classic steak tartare, anchovies soaked in vinegar and more, these snack-sized dishes were made to be shared amongst friends.



Murphy’s Ice Cream at Kildare Village


With more than 20 years in the game, Seán & Kieran Murphy have a pretty strong claim to having some of the “best” ice cream in the world. Using natural, locally sourced ingredients, without colourings, flavourings or powdered milk, Murphy’s Ice Cream prides itself on its Kerry heritage, using fresh, farm milks and creams, free-range eggs and organic sugar to create its established menu.

WE LOVE: A brand dedicated to fresh, locally produced ingredients; they even collect water from the shores of Bín Bán beach to create their famous Dingle Sea Salt flavoured ice cream.



Spontini On the Go at Fidenza Village

After debuting in MIND (Milano Innovation District) in 2023, the globally-renowned pizza brand Spontini® brings its ‘mobile’ pizzeria to Fidenza Village for a limited time only. Home to delicious slices of pizza, look out for the 24-foot container as you explore the Village boutiques.

WE LOVE: With vegetarian and vegan options available, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Spontini On the Go.



Local foodie delights at Bicester Village

For a limited time, sample delicious refreshments at Bicester Village made using locally sourced ingredients from Blenheim Palace’s luscious estate. Part of summer’s Gardens and Gatherings celebrations, enjoy freshly squeezed juices and smoothies from The Little Orange Van, zingy lemonades from Cecconi’s and moreish ice cream flavours at Vero Latte.

WE LOVE: Exploring Bicester Village’s custom-designed gardens on a balmy afternoon with an inspired ice cream and drink in hand.


Your arts and culture round-up

From awe-inspiring art installations to cutting-edge fashion pop-ups, these are the most memorable moments happening across The Bicester Collection this season.


Calamore Café at Fidenza Village


A taste of the Mediterranean, with a twist; Calamore Café spins a contemporary concept on classic Italian seafood dishes. Born from the friendship of Stash – lead vocalist of The Kolors – and culinary entrepreneur Manuel D’Alessandro, the pop-up prides itself on healthy, fresh ingredients that transport you to the beautiful, sandy shores of Capri.

WE LOVE: The parasol-covered terrace is a picture-perfect spot to enjoy a fresh seafood platter.



Bisous Bisous at Bicester Village

Exquisite pastries, stacked macarons and beautifully decorated cakes are the order at Bicester Village’s pâtisserie kiosk, Bisous Bisous. Artfully pairing the elegance of France with charming British flair, each item is carefully created using traditional, handcrafted techniques for an utterly decadent finish.

WE LOVE: On a sunny morning, finding a spot under the parasol-covered terrace with a creamy cup of coffee and one of their signature French éclairs.



Leonidas Café at Maasmechelen Village

One of Maasmechelen Village’s best-kept secrets is the beautiful new terrace at Leonidas Café. Located within the Leonidas boutique – opposite Polo Ralph Lauren – it’s the perfect spot to soak up the summer sunshine with a mid-afternoon pick-me-up from the world-famous chocolatier.

WE LOVE: You simply can’t pass through Leonidas without picking up a ribbon-wrapped treat to take away with you. We won’t tell if you decide not to share...



Momus at La Vallée Village

Delight in exceptional coffee at La Vallée Village’s latest kiosk, Momus. Founded in 2022 by Lionel Giraud, the company is on a mission to restore coffee to its former glory by using natural, organic and sustainable agriculture. The result? A delicious curation of distinguished, exclusive bean varieties to enjoy in the café or as a takeaway option.

WE LOVE: Level up your home brews with a selection of specially roasted coffee blends, created in partnership with leading figures in gastronomy and the arts.
