Description: Are you a food lover? Fancy trying something a little different? The New Horizon cafe on Longbrook Street, Exeter serves authentic Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. The food is outstanding and the service is friendly. The light salads and freshly prepared dishes are a perfect contrast to the ever growing number of fast food chains that threaten Exeter's culinary future. Next time your looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat, try The New Horizon. The New Horizon Cafe was established in 2001 and is a Mediterranean/Arabic Cafe. All our food is prepared freshly using the finest ingredients. Our passion is making authentic Arabic cuisine. We hope you enjoy eating it as much as we enjoy making it. Sit, chat, drink coffee or tea and enjoy fantastic food in a relaxed atmosphere. Afterwards why not relax and Smoke a Shisha. Shisha is a Middle-Eastern smoking tradition that began hundreds of years before the invasion of the big American cigarette companies and is one of the most common and interesting sites of the Arab World. There are numerous cafes where one can lie on long cushions and spend the time talking to your friends and enjoying this Arab delight. Tobacco is soaked in fruit shavings such as strawberry, apples or grapes. This mixture is then smoked through a large water pipe (called a hookah). Men and women of the upper classes in the Arab world have been entertaining guests with hookah pipes for centuries. Moreover, there are hoards of Shisha purists who truly cherish this tradition no less than a Japanese tea Master or Matron. An Exeter based magazine wrote: 'New Horizon has maintained a quite corner of Exeters cafe life that is a little slower, a little warmer and whole lot more tasty. But be prepared to be woken up by the freshness and quality of the home-prepared food, bursting with flavours and colour. A plate of its authentic Middle Eastern salad is a memorable experience.' We cater for small groups or large parties for any occasion. We take reservations, but walk-ins are welcome. New Horizon is located just off of New Road on Longbrook street, Exeter

“Best falafel in Exeter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

My boyfriend and I LOVE this miss place, the two owners are so lovely and are always happy to see us! They even remembered our order after the third visit! The falafel is great, as is the stuffed vine leaves... yum yum yum!

Friend recommended the falafel in pitta bread ..........Going to have to limit the amount of times I go in! Good to find a friendly cafe with so much to offer & so different from the main stream.

“Exeter No. 1 for me”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Don't be deceived by unassuming and somewhat modest looks of this restaurant from the outside - it has excellent, freshly prepared food, full of tasty vegetables, meat dishes and sauces. I work at the University, but would walk down here at least once per week to eat, whenever I am in need of really fresh and tasty lunch (my favourite dish is a mixed platter, don't miss that one out if you will ever have a chance to go to the New Horizon!). Not to mention the friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices. So, all thumbs up from me, as simple as that.
