Exeter has been very busy lately with lots of independent businesses launching or expanding.
First up, Pink Moon at 44 Queen Street. A lively grab ‘n’ go café, modern brunch space & social restaurant. Here I tried the vegan tacos and lovely strong coffee (always a good test!) – both delicious. They have now added pink gin evenings, DJ nights and long, lazy brunches. Go and check out the totally insta-worthy décor too.
Next, How On Earth (created by the Howarth family in September 2017) launched a delivery service. I’ve loved their wonderful seitan creations for some time but was so happy to be able to order them more regularly than the Vegan Markets where I usually stock up. We’ve been feasting on their vegan Herbisaurs, doner kebab, Southern fried chicken and more – totally amazing products and straight to your door.
The Lin Den, 13 North Street is a veggie + vegan patisserie. I popped in for lunch and ate a lovely tart and had an oat milk coffee – great food and the cakes on the side looked wonderful. I’ll definitely be back soon.
Finally Zero, Exeter’s very first package free food, home and design store a Zero waste store opened on Fore Street. Laid out wonderfully this store is great for picking up all sorts of zero waste goodies. So far, I’ve bought various baking ingredients, bought solid conditioner, topped up washing up liquid and entertained my kids on the drawing table while shopping. An absolutely amazing space and more being delivered all the time. Also, keep an eye out for the occasional bread delivery!
Zero waste for me is not only about the things I do at home but my subscriptions mean that as a small, locally-based business I can plan well in advance for orders, buy the right amount of stock, minimising waste and planning efficiently for my delivery slots. If you’re in my mile (check here) add yourself to my waiting list or subscribe to my mailing list to hear about availability.
Alternatively, the latest dates for my small and friendly bread making or baking classes are available here.
