We want to provide the safest possible environment for our customers and staff whilst creating a very special dining experience. In response to the current government COVID guidelines, our events will be limited to a maximum of 30 people and we will be using our  beautiful garden as much as possible. We have been working hard to create a fresh new look to the cafĂ© and to deliver something unique to Exeter's dining scene. 
"An unexpected pleasure, a real discovery. Thankfull to escape the high status processed packaged food from large food chains.

Great place to relax, lush menu, beautiful reat decor and lovely all around. Excellent valve. Shall be back"

"This is a superb cafe and somewhere I always take friends to. Great fresh food at a sensible price- always big portions. Lots of gf and vegan/vegetarian options too. Outside courtyard gardens are lovely and inside is decorated beautifully too. Overlooking the canal it's a scenic spot for coffee and cake. A firm favourite of mine I'd thoroughly recommend the Welcome cafe."
" The best by the river, but keep it a secret!!!!!!!"
"Lovely healthy food beautifully presented in a warm environment with friendly staff."
