Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you can’t beat a good ol’ English fry up. From blueberry pancakes to avocado on toast, we pick six of Exeter’s best places to indulge in a hearty brunch

1) Lloyd’s Kitchen

16 Catherine’s Street

Calling all brunchers! Lloyd’s Kitchen is the perfect place to kick start your morning. On the menu there are plenty of mouth-watering options, including traditional favourites such as smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and a huge full English with lots of delicious local ingredients. 

 

2) Tea on the Green

Cathedral Green, Exeter

Situated within a beautiful 16th century building overlooking Exeter Cathedral’s green, this quaint café provides a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a morning feast. Sit back and unwind with the latest copy of Devon Life and a hot cup of coffee, whilst a tasty breakfast is freshly prepared for you in the kitchen. We love the Tea on the Green eggs and ham.

 

3) The Glorious Art House

120 Fore Street

Glorious by name, glorious by nature, this café is bright and colourful with plenty of energetic vibes - the perfect place to start your day regardless of which side of the bed you woke up on. Whether you’re after a tasty breakfast bagel or a simple bowl of muesli, there’s plenty on the menu to sate any early morning appetite. We recommend the Glorious Hot Chocolate on a cold winter’s day, topped with marshmallows, flake and a chocolate straw.

 

4) Cosy Club

1 Southernhay East

What better way to start your day, than devouring a delicious breakfast and a hot flat white in the terrace of Cosy Club, Exeter. Situated in an old chapel, this popular eatery has a quirky décor complete with oil paintings, Victorian lampshades and a tarot card reader’s inspired room. For those with specialist dietary requirements, Cosy Club offers both vegan and gluten free options.

 

5) Café Mangos

Kings Wharf, The Quay

Locals know Café Mangos for a chilled out dining experience and breakfast is served until 12, so there’s plenty of time for a lie in before brunch. Aside from a tempting range of tasty breakfast treats including chorizo baked eggs and smashed avocado, you’ll also find a myriad of refreshing cocktails – perfect for a boozey brunch on the weekend.

 

6) Artigiano

248 High Street

Head to Artigiano in the heart of Exeter for a range of delicious cakes and bakes. From gooey chocolate cake to yummy banana bread, you’ll need some serious willpower to resist these baked goods. Artigiano is renowned for its top quality coffee, so settle down with a good book and wake up with a hot latte, made by some of the best baristas in town.
