Description: Small independent coffee shop that prides itself on the quality of its coffee, roasted by Origin based in Cornwall; we also offer a range of tea which is hand blended in Devon. Our smoothies are refreshing and we offer Luscombes and Frobishers soft drinks. We made our own cakes and traybakes, and our award winning summer fruit flapjack. We use local food producers wherever possible, so for example our bread is from Shaldon Bakery, our milk is organic from Ashclyst Farm Dairy and our sausages, bacon and ham from Courtneys Butchers in Cowick Street. We offer a friendly welcome, free wifi and local art to enjoy! On the last Wednesday of the month Love Local Food run a story telling and creativity session for Under 8's and their families. We have live Music during the cooler months on the first Sunday of the month.

Freezing cold wind so thought we would pop in to warm up. The Cafe is decorated in lovely warm colours with artwork and photographs by local photographers on the walls. It feels very much part of the community. The Coffee was very good and there were some amazing savoury muffins, very tasty made with blue cheese and grated parsnip apparently. Love it!

St. Thomas is not the sort of area of Exeter where you'd expect to find a great coffee house, but Cafe at 36 has now been there for over 5 tears, serving up excellent coffee, cakes and snacks. They also have some interesting pictures on the walls (most of them seem to be for sale).
Cowick Street is just over the river from the popular Quay area, and Cafe at 36 is well worth seeking out for some quality coffee.
