This place is a gem and situated a stones throw from the throng of Exeter’s city centre. A small independently run cafe with a cool vibe and buzzing atmosphere. Rebecca Alford, the owner has been at the helm for a year or so and from what I can see the cafe has gone from strength to strength. The decor is eclectic. Colourful flowers hang from the ceiling, local artists display their work and their green plants on every available windowsill and surface.
Serving simple yet hearty food to students and locals alike, you will struggle to find a table in this busy cafe. I can’t tell you how many times I have popped up for a coffee or some pancakes and haven’t been able to get in through the door! That’s why on this particular visit I booked. I needed to be guaranteed a table so I could sit down and sample the breakfast menu. Served all day may I add!
