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!

Found this little gem last Saturday whilst visiting Exeter, lovely food and staff. Would recommend the beef casserole. Did not wait long for the food and it was all homemade and delicious!

This French style restaurant took my fancy when passing for the quaint style and seating outside with customers eating crepes. Staff were friendly and food was served very quick!

We visited this delightful cafe before going to the theatre. We enjoyed a chicken savoury crepe and finished our meal with caramel apple pancakes with caramel sauce. This dessert was one of the best we have ever eaten. While in the cafe we were impressed by the care and attention of the staff to an elderly lady who could decide... More
