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

Stopped here for breakfast on the first day of our holiday. Had the breakfast crepe and croque madame. Both were absolutely delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. Service was efficient and really friendly. We got loads of advice about places to go in and around Exeter, which was really appreciated.

Like the atmosphere, the staff, the service and a variety of food beyond their excellent crepes. Really good coffee too.

We had lunch in this restaurant and revived memories of enjoyable meals in France. The savoury crepes were delicious - we had the chicken with tomato and the smoked salmon. The Cafe Gourmand desert was also delicious, especially the apple and toffee crepe. The staff were pleasant, courteous and efficient and we look forward to a return visit to try... More

Such a lovely cafe for a quick bite to eat, varied and good food and wonderful staff. For a city centre cafe, you can't go wrong with this delightful place. Great for kids too, my young niece and nephew are huge fans!

Based on the reviews, my wife and I decided to try out this cafe. We ordered Eggs Florentine and brioche with fruit. The egg was overcooked, with sub-standard ham and a hollandaise sauce which had been warmed in a microwave. My Brioche was OK, but tepid. When we mentioned this to the waitress she appeared nonplussed, and offered no refund... More

I've eaten a couple times at Gourmandine and have to say the quality of service and the food is absolutely superb. I'd definitely recommend them for an authentic taste of France whether a light bite or a scrummy meal!
