Lovely little place along an unassuming road in Exeter high street. Must try the Glorious Art Cafe speciality hot chocolate - everything a got chocolate should be! Well worth it.

Staff fit the hippy vibe and looked zonked on weed! Coffee ok nothing special and the place looked incredibly dirty and grimy. Slow and overall not a nice experience certainly not worth visiting again it is extremely pretentious.
