“Very cool.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Came down for lunch the other day while in Exeter. Had the antipasti platter with salami and parma ham and other bits, and my friend had the nordic plater with smoked salmon and surprisingly good mustard herrings. Really tasty and filled us right up. Their coffee is from Axminster coffee roasters The Coffee Factory and the barista knew what he was doing with our flat whites. Food and drink was very reasonably priced given the quality. Didn't try any of the cocktails but the Moscow Disco sounds amazing, so will definitely come back to try some of them. The decor is a mishmash of random retro and home made furniture with a cosy feel. There's free wifi available which was useful because my phone didn't get any signal underground.

It's a theatre so there are shows on in the evenings with some matinees, maybe I'll come back and watch a show when I try the cocktails!
