Been here only few times, but they both were memorable. Atmosphere is very cosy and staff is very friendly. Menu is simple and affordable. These crepes tasted better than what I've had in France! Coffee is very tasty too. Favourite place in Exeter so far

Manageress was very welcoming and friendly, making sure we always had everything we needed. Croque Monseiur and 'La Tatin' crêpe for dessert- both very tasty and filling. Lovely, relaxed lunch and great spot for people-watching if sat on the high tables by the window!

I've visited La Gourmandine many times over the years and never been disappointed. It's a daytime place, centrally located and great for a coffee and a crepe. Friendly staff and straightforward cooking.

What began as a takeaway Creperie is now a truly French Bistrot (spelled the correct Breizh way) bursting with authenticity and presenting classic French dishes in a relaxed and friendly environment. Gourmandine is open for morning treats, lunch,and afternoon patisserie. We will also open evenings by special arrangement for private parties of 20 to 25 people. Come in and see why we're no longer the best kept secret in Exeter, and discover what a real French Bistrot is!
