Description: What began as a takeaway Creperie is now a truly French Bistrot (spelled the correct Breizh way) bursting with authenticity and presenting classic French dishes in a relaxed and friendly environment. Gourmandine is open for morning treats, lunch,and afternoon patisserie. We will also open evenings by special arrangement for private parties of 20 to 25 people. Come in and see why we're no longer the best kept secret in Exeter, and discover what a real French Bistrot is!

Really friendly authenticity French bistrot. Nice simple menu with tasty food. Crepes are fantastic, wether you choose to have the sweet or savoury. Located very centrally as well so perfect for a mid morning snack or an afternoon lunch.

There were three of us, two of whom had a main course and shared a crepe for dessert and the other having soup and a crepe. It was very good food and although some might find the absence of large quantities of potatoes a problem, it was not an issue for us. The fish was excellent and boeuf bourguinon tender... More

I ate a simple baguette (£4.95) with chips (£0.75), a simple crepe (£4.50) with an eyeball size scoop of icecream (£1) and a coffee (£2.55). That's just under £14 for a fairly basic lunch, not including tips. Also, the chips annoyingly were a handful of crisps in a small bowl (forgot the french translation). Pricey for what you get (the... More

Visited for lunch on a Saturday having read the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Didn't disappoint my friend had the goats cheese salad and I had a crepe both washed down with some great Breton cider. We will go back.

We came here for lunch on a Saturday a few weeks ago. The food was lovely - I had the warm goat's cheese salad and my boyfriend had the 'La complete' crepe. The staff stood out as being friendly, particularly a very nice woman who chatted to us about our visit to Exeter when we went up to pay and... More

I can never pass this restaurant without having a croissant and a coffee, the best in Exeter. The service has always been quick and never kept waiting.

Gourmandine Crepes Cafe is a must. I took my three boys and mum with me. All the boys were allowed to invent their own custom made crepe, which was all very exciting. They licked the plates clean and still managed to force down the 'best ever' hot chocolate (their words). The service was attentive and quick. Prices were competitive and... More

There's so many options to choose from at this Crepe Cafe; it's the perfect place to visit on a Saturday morning with friends as a treat - you certainty couldn't eat here all of the time! I opted for a sweet crepe and my friend went savory, both of which tasted fresh and filled us to the brim. Staff were... More
