This is one of our favourite places for coffee and cake and an excellent place when you have children with you as there is a dedicated childrens play area. All the cakes are home made and very reasonably priced and you can relax in the very comfortable armchairs and watch the world go by. Highly recommended.

My family and I are local to Exmouth and we regularly eat here. My daughter absolutley loves the macaroni cheese, which is very good and I have sampled many of the dishes and enjoyed them very much. The butternut squash and cheddar quiche is EXCELLENT, the three bean chilli on jacket potato or nachos is delicious and the halloumi and cous cous salad is always a winner. The salads are always fresh, tasty and totally enjoyable.
The cafe is very realxed and a great place to go with your children, they have a gated play area for little ones! My daughter and I often sit in the 'quiet area' and share a book whilst waiting for our lunch, she loves it!
We often finish off with one of the AMAZING homemade cakes!
A great cafe with fresh, wholesome food that is very reasonably priced.

I would highly recommend the book rest. Fab food mostly cooked by owners husband. Atmosphere service location staff and quality is great and the prices are below what one would expect for the standard. The addition of the children's area not only benefits all :-)

Good food, plenty of space, including a specific area for little ones to play safely and friendly staff. A very pleasant place to stop for a coffee and a chat.

The two previous reviews have nailed it. Central, lively and good food. I had called in previously to enquire about gluten free food, which they do serve. For a lunchtime bite my partner had a warm scone, I had soup of the day, (moroccan chick pea), with gluten free rosemary bread, which was excellent. The latte coffee, made fresh, was very good. Friendly service, and we bough some books downstairs. We will visit again when in Exmouth.
