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.

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.
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.
