What an interesting and unique place. We had to wait for our croissants to finish baking (as all food is baked on the premises) but it was worth it. Believe me, the cakes were to die for! You'll have a long way to go to find another place like this - thoroughly recommended! Forget the diet!

Visited previously and returned recently when visiting our family in Exeter. As always superb coffee and the Belgian Chocolate Brownies were to die for!

Our grandson was quietly absorbed in eating his brownie and it was the only time he stopped talking during our visit :-)

A must visit experience when in Exeter centre!

This is an amazing little find right neXt to Exeter Central Station, I love the way their advertising is understated yet their coffee and cakes are out of this world. Great care is taken in making every coffee, Monmouth beans freshly ground for every cup and ristrato shot as standard creates a really smooth cup. All the cakes are gluten free and amazing.
Well worth a visit you'll never go back to the big chain stores.

Everything made and baked on the premises. Small menu but this is a small cafe that is really a bakery......wonderful savouries and cakes. The lemon polenta cake is moist and full of flavour. There are cakes to suit all tastes and the coffee is wonderful...it would be a crime to have one without the other! Sit outside and watch the world go by.

The best place in Exeter for a quick lunch. The soups are like no other soups you have tasted, they are outstanding and excellent value for money. We do not travel to Exeter often but when we do we always make a point of stopping for something to eat or to take home.
Everything from savouries to the wonderful cakes are superb and the tea is great, served in a glass.
You will not find more welcoming staff - its always a super experience and we tell everyone about it!!
