We recently booked BTP for a uni society event, and were delighted and impressed with the welcoming and friendly staff, the quality of the drinks, food, and service, and the cleanliness and homely feel of the location. We'll be coming again!

We popped into Boston Tea Party on a Sunday afternoon for a casual meeting, the staff were super friendly and helpful, whilst the space upstairs is fantastic for events, meetings or sharing some food or coffee with friends.

Visited on a Saturday morning for a late breakfast and sat upstairs. Sticky table, uncomfortable chairs, noisy (hard to hold a conversation). Food well cooked. Eggy bread more like fried bread. Quite expensive - so will find somewhere better next time..

Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent cafe group serving simple well-prepared food & drinks made with great ingredients, skill and love. Ethically sourced, affordable, feel-good & excellent quality - made from scratch onsite everyday by people who care about what they do. BTP Exeter is one of largest Bostons - not that you can tell from the bustling & busy downstairs. It is the vast & imposing upstairs dining room that proves the real draw to the discerning folk of Exeter. Plenty of room to spread out.
