I came in here to have a coffee and food and to do some work with my laptop. The wifi however is one of those open sign up ones that kept cutting out after every half hour or so, so trying to upload photos was not a good idea. The place could be more welcoming and cosy with a couple... More

The sandwiches here are of good value and for an extra 30p it is definitely worth having them toasted. Wasn't very busy when I visited.

I only stumbled across Waikiki by chance on a lunch break. I usually only have enough time to shovel down some fast food chips or packet of crisps before running back to work but I saw this place and thought I'd have a look. As soon as I stepped in I was made to feel welcome, the quality and freshness... More

I'd been curious about this shop for a while so decided to give it a go. I went at lunch time on a weekday, and the shop was completely empty and dark. I wouldn't have known it was open if it wasn't for the sign outside. There were two bored looking assistants, one of who was making his own lunch.... More

Sorry you felt the shop was dark and lacking atmosphere but as you had a takeaway product this was perhaps not the most important feature. The summer months are always quiet due to the University students ( our main clientele) being on holiday. I am glad you liked the baguette and felt the filling was OK - I hope the... More

This review is a bit overdue, as I've not been in a while (but I've recently written a horrible review for somewhere else and wanted to balance it out!) I've tried a few of the wraps and all of them are excellent. The thai chicken (the one with the peanuts!) is my favourite. The smoothies, too, are excellent and good... More

Thanks for the review Alice. Its good to hear you enjoy the freshly made wraps and smoothies. I hope the extra walk up to Sidwell Street will be worth it. The loyalty card actually gives a free wrap/smoothie/baguette for every 6 stamps - one stamp for every purchase over £2.99 ( one stamp max per day). Great to hear from... More

I popped in for a quick lunch. The place was very quiet which was a shame. I ordered a cucumber juice and Greek salad. I ended up getting a carrot something(not a juice). I didn't mind it and wasn't in the mood to point it out as it tasted nice. The salad was a big disappointment. The only thing that... More

Sorry it's taken so long to review! We went in for just drinks-service was great, place spotlessly clean. We wished that we were there for food,the menu is excellent-lots of interesting fillings for jackets/wraps etc. The sole reason we don't go more often is because we are walking into/out of town & timings wise are generally too early or too...

I've been to Waikiki's a few times and their wraps etc. are always really tasty and very good value for money. I can't fault them on the food and I think what they're doing is lovely -I would absolutely recommend it for a nice lunch!

Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoy our food. We inherited the bar at the front of the cafe and have thought many times about removing it. We may well reconsider this. We have put lights inside and out to brighten the front without much success. The problem seems to be the recess at the front making it dark... More

I have had a fajita hot wrap a few times now! The great thing is they swap the chicken for Quorn if you are veggie like me!!! How many places do that? It was absolutely delicious all three times.

I have seen it several times and decided to get a beef wrap with a smooth. They are fresh and taste beautiful. This is great place to have a break and recharge. The design inside is also impressive and the staffs are friendly. Recommend this place.

We're Waikiki. Not the Hawaiian island, but a great little cafe tucked along Exeter's Sidwell Street. We're dedicated to all that's good about food. Yep, food that nourishes your body and food that fills your soul with joy. It's our delicious take on fresh, healthy food alongside tasty naughtiness on a plate, such as a hearty burger and chips. Sit and enjoy our modern cafe space (including free wi-fi), while we're also here for takeaway lunches and coffee to go if that's your thing.
