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

Always like to eat here when in Exeter. Outstanding service and great non-pretentious food. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Visited for my birthday lunch - wish I had saved the £30. Burnt ciabatta with goats cheese. Average crepes - nothing outstanding. Crammed tables, bit like a school dining room. Vague staff but firendly owner.

This place was a brilliant find. I stumbled upon it quite by accident after wandering down a side street from the Cathedral green. And I'm so glad I did. It was early in the morning I actually found it but we returned at lunchtime as the menu looked great and resteraunt looked clean and tidy. We just had some sweet... More

Stooped in for a quick bite to eat before heading to get train home after visiting Exeter for a friends wedding. Excellent service from the very friendly lady. I had the savoury breakfast pancake and my wife had the eggs benedict. Both were good size portions and great tasting. Will definitely be back in for a sweet pancake when visiting... More

I have walked past this bistro/cafe so many times but yesterday decided to pop in with my children for a treat. My eldest and I shared a chocolate fondue whilst my youngest had a crepe with jam. I was so impressed with everything that arrived at our table but the fondue had the wow factor! The ladies who served us... More
