The Plant Cafe
1 Cathedral Yard, Exeter, EX1 1HJ
This popular, bustling vegetarian café, owned and run by three young and enthusiastic partners, sits facing the cathedral in the heart of Exeter. In fine weather you can dine handsomely on a stunning, modestly priced range of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan foods alfresco in Cathedral Yard. All dishes are prepared on the premises, with ingredients either locally sourced or from Fairtrade growers. This café enjoys a well-deserved local reputation for good food, generous helpings and friendly service. We were lucky to find the only empty table. I chose a slice of a tasty frittata with accompanying salad, while my wife opted for a layered risotto with a goat's cheese topping. The mouth-watering puddings proved irresistible, as did the wide range of organic cold drinks and excellent coffee. Well worth a visit.
