“Give me a good sharp knife and a good sharp cheese and I’m a happy man.”
– George R.R. Martin
Who are Good Times?
Next up in Pulse’s ‘Street Food Sensations’ series are the 2022 ‘MK Street Food of the Year’ winners, Good Times Café. Good Times serve up an array of cheese-based products and a vast selection of hot drinks and local, handmade treats. Specialising in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, barista-brewed coffee and home bakes, their delicious creations are all served with a smile from their retro pistachio-green, classic Citroen HY Van.
I have been lucky enough to sample plenty of the offerings from Good Times Café over the last few years.
What’s On the Menu…
During the Olney Great Taste Food and Drink Fair, I opted for their Roast Beef Special. This consisted of a toasted sandwich filled with roast beef, meat gravy, caramelised onions, horseradish cream and the café’s signature cheese blend, served with a dill pickle. This was possibly the best dish I’ve tried from there so far – although there are so many contenders!
Previously, at Eat Street events, I have enjoyed their Raclette: mountains of gooey cheese grilled and then dolloped on top of garlic and herb potatoes, served with cornichons and pickled red onions, as well as – more recently – their Cheesesteak Toastie: the perfect sandwich jam-packed with succulent steak and sweet peppers.
At Christmastime, for Newport Pagnell Festive Street Food and Farmer’s Market, I tried their Black Forest hot chocolate, which was so rich with sweet cherry, and I also thoroughly enjoyed the sweet ham hock and tangy mustard toastie, as well as their brie and cranberry toastie. You can never order too much from Good Times Café!
You can find Good Times Café at plenty of street food events, such as: All Things Street, Eat Street in Milton Keynes, Bite Street in Nothampton, MK7 Community Market and most weeks at Bradwell Abbey. For more information, be sure to follow them on social media.
