My first post!

So here it is.. My first post. It’s not particularly ‘foodie’ as you can see! I just needed to get one out there! Plus, I loved this photo of the beautiful flower on our table that I figured it was a good as any place to start.. Onwards and upwards they say..

I visited this lovely little cafe in Exeter this week called ‘Glorious Art House’. It’s a great place in the heart of Exeter. (Fore street to be exact) They serve lovely teas and coffees and amazing cakes. I shared a gluten free lemon and almond cake with my boyfriend Steve and it was so moist and tasty. I love a good cake.. I am sure you will get the gist of this over my future posts!

 The cafe is over three floors. Ground and first floor there is cafe seating. All of the tables and chairs are mis-matched which I love. They use crockery from Anthropologie and all the silverware is vintage. The third floor is dedicated to local artists who can display their wares for sale. It is quirky stuff but definitely worth a little look see. There isn’t anything else in Exeter similar so therefore I say it’s a gem waiting to be discovered.

 It’s definitely worth a visit. Next time I go I fancy one of their lunches.. Maybe the antipasto platter or the vegetable tagine. Yum!

I noticed that they sometimes open in the evening for special occasions (valentines evening was the last one) and you can bring your own vino.. Always a winner! Not sure what the corkage is though.. Will aim to find out for you.

Well.. There it is… First post done and dusted. Phew! I enjoyed the process and I hope you will enjoy reading it. I can’t wait until the next time!

  1. I still haven’t been here-but it looks great. Definately will head there next time in town. Can’t wait to hear your next instalment xxx

  2. Hi Tara, Thank you so much for doing a little write up on The Glorious. I’m utterly thrilled that you had a nice visit, and sounds like you might have tried one of my favourite cakes we offer too! We are indeed trying to open up for more evenings, we tend to do a few private events a week, but we are now in application for our premises license, which should mean we’ll be open a few nights a week with a whole host of lovely wines, beers and cocktails on offer! (See the Glorious Rosy Gin on facebook posted last week). Sadly our platters have been taken off the menu, but we still have the tagine which you mentioned, and also a whole host of new goodies to try (freshly baked baguettes, lovely local salads, a whole breakfast menu.. to name just a few!) We really look forward to seeing you again, and I look forward to seeing how this blog develops – will share around the cybersphere! Take Care, Derry

    1. Thank you so much for reading the blog and posting a comment. It means a great deal as I start out. I love your cafe and visit often so I am sure it will crop up again soon. X
